Light truck or passenger load rated tires

I've destroyed a couple tires by tread and sidewall punctures off road. I'm looking at Michelin ltx/at2 and bridgestone duelers. The both come in passenger rated and light truck rated. Is there a difference in durability besides the maximum load.

Thanks for any help

Light truck tires will have a heavier load rating and more steel belts. They will ride a little harsher but I would never put passenger tires on a truck.

Your truck came with either P245/75/16, P265/70/16, or 265/65/17 which are all P-metric tires.

LTs will be better for off-road, towing, and airing down.

I'm with Scottri. Had P rated tires on my Tacoma before and now LTs. The MPG hit and extra weight is worth it IMHO.

The LTS AT2s are awesome tires. Have a few friends that have them on their truck and they're great. Not necessarily the best off-road but capable.
Dueler REVOs get rave reviews but I have yet to have any experience with them.
