Passenger and Light Truck
Edward’s Tire Company, Inc.
Passenger Tires are for vehicles that are designed for personal use – like hatchbacks, sedans, coupes, and crossovers. Many SUVs, minivans, and smaller pickup trucks (under ¾ ton) also use passenger-rated tires.
Vehicles like ¾ ton or larger pickup trucks, work vans and trucks, and other large vehicles that regularly carry heavy loads or pull heavy trailers will need Light Truck (LT) tires. These tires are built differently than Passenger Tires – they’re built with more material and have sturdier sidewalls to handle the weight of the vehicle.
The key is to make sure the tire’s load carrying capacity is sufficient for the vehicle’s weight, including any cargo.
