Re: What is the difference between light truck tires and car tires?
If you are referring to the LT and the P before the metric sizing, YES
there is a BIG difference. P refers to Passenger and is a lighter duty tire
with better ride at the sacrifice of load capacity. Typically a range from
1-4ply. LT refers to Light Truck and come in a range from 6-12ply and
typically are a stiffer tire with higher load capacities. How fast they each
wear depends more on the tread pattern and compound. You can get VERY mild
tread tires with higher load capacities and versa-visa...
On your Ranger, you should be able to go with a P rated tire
easy...UNLESS you haul some decent weight in the back. Ask a trusted shop
what would be best for you. But remember, lower priced means cheaper about
half the time. Do some homework!!!
