I hit up every tire mfg I could think of this AM for you and looked for the tire size you need in load range E. Although you didn't mention E here you did on another site you made this post on. You should move to E's because C ratings will be lower than your current P tires and I found no load range D's offered at all in this size.
I didn't concern myself with the type of tire( ie; All-Terrain vs Highway/All-Season )nor did I concern myself with my own opinions on the tire mfg's themselves. I just concentrated on finding the size you wanted in load range E.
If you don't see a name brand tire MFG in the list, and wonder if they offer the tire size and rating you are after, trust me they don't
Here is the list of tire mfg's I looked at for you. If a mfg does in fact offer the size you are after in load range E, and I don't give a link below to the tire model spec page, then they do not have the correct info on their web site at this time.
Tire Mfg's I searched:
Also, just as an FYI. Keep an eye out on the load rating. Obviously you know about that as you specified E on the other web site. HOWEVER, many tire mfg's do offer LT265/70R17 tires but in load range C which is only 2450lbs and less than the P series you have now. I had to really pay attention to that in my search.
Don't let some tire shmo at the local "Tires for less" try and sell you an LT and say it is the higher load range unless you VERIFY it first. As stated, I have hit all the name brand mfg's as well as some less well known brands and these are the tires available in LT265/70R17 E. A lot of load range C tires in this size so pay attention to that.

If you find a tire you like I would be glad to try and assist in finding them for you at the best price. Usually shipping on tires is so expensive that it negates the cheaper online tire prices you find. I know I found tires online for like $15-$25 less than I could locally but when you add in shipping at $15-$20 per tire it was a wash. Especially since most local tire places will mount tires for free or at very cheap prices if you buy them there compared to bringing in your own tires.
Anyway, I will gladly assist in an attempt to help you find the best deal on what you want. Figured this list would give you a base of operations to figure out just what tires you want and then I can help you find the best deal on those.
Hope this helps you out. This message has been edited. Last edited by: NHHEMI, document.write(''+ myTimeZone('Sun, 01 May 2005 04:32:04 GMT-0700', '01 May 2005 07:32 AM')+''); 01 May 2005 07:32 AM
