    i have a 1980 k5 blazer looking at new tires for it. they will only for winter use. so my question is do i want to buy the tires with xl load rating or just the reg ones?

    i would also recommend the higher load rating ... i even run load range E on my old ram 1500 that is pretty much only used for normal driving
