    Found a good deal on Dakota Definity tires for my 05 Sierra 2500. I had Dakota Definity's on my last truck (03 Silverado 1500) and had good luck with them. Heres my question.... Looking at the 265 / 75 /16 E. They stock that size with both LT and P ratings. However, the only way to get the E load range is to go with the P....the LT tires are only C load range. Make sense? Just trying to figure out, if any, the difference between the Passenger rated, and the Light Truck rated.

    Thanks....

    Pass E is usually for 15 Passenger Vans while LT Es are usually for Trucks.

    c rated tires used to squat my frt end with the plow up. i wouldnt go that route. i run e rated tires and the frt end doesnt move at all when the plow is up. tires make the difference. i have pro comp all terrain tires and i love them. look into them. they have a 50k thread guarentee and they work wonderful in the snow. plus they are prob the same price as the pep boy specials that you are lookin at. look into them. www.procomptires.com, i am running 265's and i payed 550 bucks with shipping for all 4 tires.
