Looking for ~33" tire Load Range C for stock 17" wheels

I have an 08 Rubicon with factory 17" 5 spoke wheels. I'm planning to level it out up front and go to a ~33" tire. I currently have 265/70-17 Nitto's that are almost done.....but the ride is horrible. I think that is because they are Load Range E, 10 ply. I bought the Jeep with these tires on it....it's not what I would've put on. I'd like to keep some power and mileage with the 3.8 dog, so I'm staying with 33's so I don't have to re-gear.

Is there a 285/70-17 or ~33" x XX -17 that is available in Load Range C?

The little bit of searching I've done has only turned up Load Range D tires...which is better than the current E's I have. However, I'd still like to get back to a 6 ply tire like the factory tires are. Thanks in advance.

285/70/17 = 32.7x11.2/17

Looks like all the major tire companies make them only in Load Range D. I have run D's mostly no issues at all.

Right......I was hoping someone had found that one or two tire companies that offered the oddball ~33" tire in a 17" rim size that is 6 ply instead of 8 ply or 10 ply.

It appears that General Tire offers a 33 x 12.5-17 in Load Range C. Might go that route but would prefer something a little narrower....like a 285.
