New Tires

I bought New BFG tires for my truck. They put Load Range E on them. My old tires and spare were Load range D. I think the tires run rough. Is it in my head or should I not notice a difference. Is it worth trying to make them change them out. Truck is my commuter and does not see off road use.

1. Not worth it.
2. Reduce the air pressure.
3. All 235 85 R16s are Load Range E (almost all, anyway).
