load index,,,and max load

what is the load index?

also if the tire max weight is less than my truck...like the BFG rugges trail handles like 2200lbs.. but our truck is heavy than that
but since the truck has all the tires, does it mean the weight will be distribute it to all 4?

I saw the toyo open country.. they have the same tire but all different weight and load index.
some says max weight is 3000 and some at 3400

anyone can help me?

Why are ya worrying about it? .....as long as you're getting 'LT' (light truck) tires, you shouldn't have to worry.

Our trucks with the amount they actually weight and the towing capacity - it's a drop in the bucket.

But if you're getting technical...not only do you take the tires into consideration, but wheel size/width, tire pressure, tonque weight, load, etc etc etc.

they have different prices on the same size tire...
I guess I'll just get the lower load index, since it is cheaper

You don't even need LT tires. I have performance tires on mine & tow an 18' bass boat. Never have any problems. I would worry about loads, unless you are dealing with excessive loads.
