So I would rather have a D-rated trailer tire than an LT tire any day.
But yes, we do have a very limited choice when it comes to tires.
Sorry I should've been more specific. A 15" LT in the D and E ranges. The construction just seems better and the tires themselves are heavier (bigger is better right?
) than there ST counter parts when you get into size ranges where you can do apples to apples comparisons between ST and LT of the same load range. I recently read a very interesting post on another forum about reserve rating in the LT class that made a lot of sense assuming it's not internet non-sense. After all who would ever make something up or mislead anyone else on the internet...
