    Even if you just had a retreaded set to use in the winter time with a snow specific tread on them and the rest of the year run a summer type tire.

    a 3100lb load rating isnt that high for a 14 ply tire. i know of E rangee (10plies) that get more than that, although the extra plies will give you better sidewall stability if thats where the extra plies are.

    what brand 7.4r16 tires are you talking about? not all 14 ply tires have the same ratings.

    The 7.50R-16 is a narrow tire it runs 110 PSI like I said it will distort your rim before the tire give out. Very tough tires guys run them because they are puncture proof good for offroad.

    They are speed rated thou because the heat build up is pretty high.

    When your running a duals especially Ford-Chev-Dodge 1 tons you want the tall skinny tires on the back gives you good traction and prevents the tires from floating. Get into mud or snow you have more traction.
