What truck tire options are there?
Nearly any type of tire, if it is the correct size, can work on a truck; it depends on your intended use for the vehicle. If hauling heavier loads like what you might in the bed of a pickup truck or on a trailer is the goal, a light truck tire could be the correct choice. Touring and passenger tires are options if you intend to primarily drive on the road and rarely hull cargo. Off-road enthusiasts might be interested in all-terrain tires or even mud-terrain tires for their truck.
Are there differences between truck and SUV tires?
Truck tires typically feature larger sidewalls and heavier load ratings than SUV tires.
What’s the difference between light truck (LT) and passenger truck tires
Light truck tires are designed for owners who intend to haul heavier loads with their vehicle either in its bed or on a trailer. Made from thicker rubber compound than passenger tires, LT tires tend to be more durable. Passenger truck tires have thinner sidewalls than their LT counterparts, which helps lead to a smoother ride.
How long do truck tires last?
Warranties on truck tires tend to be shorter than those for a car, because some are designed to carry heavy loads and/or for off-road travel. You can expect to find truck tires warrantied for about 40,000-70,000 miles.
