Could you provide a link by chance?
Look for Carlisle Sure Trail LT Trailer Tire tires by size in the Denton Area - Discount Tire/America's Tire

While not currently in stock per the web site, they can order these for you.

There are actually LT truck tires and LT trailer tires as well as the more common ST trailer tire designations. As I understand it, LT TRUCK tires must never be used on a camper. ST trailer tires or LT Trailer tires should only be used on trailers and never on trucks.

That's funny. We just got a brand-new trailer into our dealership that has Michelin LTX's on it, in load range E:

I had some strange things going on with my truck after I got a set of these on my Silverado. I had vibration and swaying, and a general mushiness. I took the truck back to Firestone twice, and was ready to take advantage of their "30 day test drive", and make them swap them for something else, when I happened to check the tire pressure. They put 35psi in them. I put 80 in them, and the problems went away. I had no more trouble with them, and, after 40,000 miles on them, I traded in the truck. The tires still had a bit over 6/32" tread on them.
