When it comes to passenger & light truck tires, drivers have multiple options. There are many companies to consider, from the biggest brands (Goodyear, Bridgestone, Yokohama) to small, private label companies.

In terms of passenger & light truck tires (LT tires), some vehicles can use both. For instance, a pickup or SUV may function equally well with either type, and they can undergo service and maintenance with the same equipment. However, the one big difference and deciding factor may be the difference in price. It’s not strictly a case of cheap versus expensive, as some less-expensive models may be a better fit for a larger vehicle, and vice versa. It’s just as bad for consumers to focus on the cheapest passenger & light truck tires available, as they can cause serious damage to a car, truck, or SUV.

For passenger & light truck tires, LTs and SUVs may need slightly larger, more durable tires, with vehicle size playing a large role. Generally speaking, passenger tires are recommended for small-medium cars and light trucks carrying lighter loads. They’re typically more affordable.

Light truck tires, meanwhile, should be installed on medium-large trucks that frequently carry heavy loads. They will probably cost more than passenger tires. LTs tend to be manufactured with thicker rubber compounds for passenger and light truck tires. They may also be more effective at off-road driving, as dirt or gravel may damage passenger tires. Light truck tires usually have a specific tread designed to better grip the road, including during wet conditions.

On the down side, LT tires may lend themselves to a rougher, noisier ride, due to their stiffer sidewalls. You should also know that, despite their name, not all of these tires fit every light truck or SUV. Some smaller pickups and SUVs may provide a good ride using passenger tires, while larger trucks may call for commercial tires. As they’re meant for particular vehicles, their prices can be higher.
