I think the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ is an 8 ply. I've never used them but I hear good things about them. I am actually ordering some for my truck tomorrow.

if you go from an 8 ply to 10 ply there is going to be a noticeable difference in stiffness no matter what you do. as stated above you can lower pressure but then you can run into bad tire wear and lower fuel mileage.

we all run our ten ply tires with 50psi and it makes a huge difference, infact when you look at them you can't tell we're running just 50 psi because of how stiff the tires are. then we air them up anytime we're going haul something. works great no funny wear or anything.

50psi isn't too low, I keep my mine around 65 because I tow very regularly. If i tow really heavy they get aired up to 75.

I am sure 50 makes a huge difference in ride quality and if they wear good then more power to ya. enjoy the nice ride!!!
