    Does anyone know the difference between the (P)-Passenger and (LT)-Light Truck tires from Nitto? Can I use the P version on a DC Tacoma? Thanks!

    yep, you can use the p- metrics.......they are less heavy than a lt tire. not as rugged for offroading, but they will be good for light offroading and great for the road.

    wat?
    LT tires are usually made thicker (ie sidewalls 4 ply instead of 3 ply) and P's are softer for better highway comfort

    Also, P-metrics often have less tread depth than LT tires which equates to shorter tire life.

    Also means they do not have the strength capabilities to haul heavy loads, like LT tires can. P metrics a 4 ply max. tire. Where the LT tires range from 6ply load range C, all the way up to 8-ply Load range E. higher the load range the more weight each tire can hold.

    Higher load ranges offer a stiffer tire, bad for off-road, because of the stiff side walls, and tire felxibility.

    IMHO I prefer to run LT Load C 6-ply, even A/T's, that way you get the best of both worlds. A tire good for hauling, regular driving, off-road. Not to mention won't have to worry about a toothpick puncturing your tire, like a P 4-ply....Always stay with LT's.
