Re: Passenger Tire vs. Light Truck Tire
Don't know the specifics, but yes...there are differences between P and LT tires. Personally, a truck used like a truck needs an LT in my opinion. LT have thicker sidewalls, heavier duty construction, have higher load rating, etc. LT will ride more firmly than a P tire due to its heavier construction and less sidewall flex, but if you get an unagressive tread, you'll probably hardly notice the difference in ride "quality" - I prefer a firm ride, so to each their own I guess. I think many LTs have a lower speed rating than Ps, but that is probably due to the tread pattern more than LT vs. P.
