Matt, I did check the web for the Wrangler before I posted the LT comment, but there may be a Wrangler tire I missed that is a P rated tire.

No Worries Lou - wasnt saying you were wrong - just going from what info I had from when they came on my 2004 Dodge Ram they were P rated tires at that time (they may not be now) - they could have changed them to LT tires - hence why I said to check the side of the tire

I checked the website too and didnt even see the Wrangler HP tires - go figure

Hmm, well I always felt that if you are going to "break a law" it is ALWAYS better to know you are doing it.

When the nice police officer pulls you over for speeding you can say, "Sorry officer I realize I was going 10 MPH over the limit, but I was keeping up with traffic". The other response is, "Hmm, maybe you can tell me what the speed limit is on this road. I have no idea..."

Guess which one might get you a warning?

You know what's missing from this forum? LIKES or + to agree with people. Great conversation.

Don't want to sound like an ad for them but I have put a few sets of Firestone Transforce AT tires on our trucks and they are LT load range E and work great for long service life (about one year or 100,000 km per truck) they are perfect towing, or loaded for bear. I think other companies may make similar ones but I havent tried anything that worked as well. One of our trucks (Tundra) came with P rated tires and I swapped them off after just 60,000 km, badly worn and I just didn't trust them anymore. I don't know if other people put their trucks and tires through what I do (driving heavy loads on them all day long every day) but if you do don't stick with the P's go LT and if you want to save a lot of money on long term tire replacement, spend a lot of short term money on tire replacement $0.02 won't get you a valve stem though.

We have about 30000 km on the tires now and we'll be close to 50 when it's time to tow. We will start with short trips at first to get to know how to tow and then we'llget new tires.
