    Best guess would be slight differences in tread compounds between the LT and P rated tires.

    I have these in a P rated, and they are severe snow rated. And if you notice there are some LT which are and some which are not. Here is a link to the Tire Rack explanation for why some are and some aren't. Also here is an attached explanation from Continental Tire, owner of General.
