I didn't mention anything about AT/S vs RT/S. I guess I'm was unclear on that point. However, I am comparing strait AT/S tires one-on-one with the P vs LT designation. Same tread pattern, same OD, same width, same profile, same everything except one is called LT and one is called P. The only difference noted from what I see is the LT cost more and the load rating is less than the P.
You never told the difference between LT and P which was my original question.
Doesn't make sense for me why that I should pay more for less until I find out what's the real difference in cost. I'm on my second F-150 ('99 XLT & '00 Lariat both 4x4) with LT Goodyears on it and I never had a single issue. Had a '89 Chevy 4x4 for 9 years with Wrangler TDs on it, twice, and never had a single issue, got great traction, wet or dry and got good mileage out of the tread. Don't know why you hate Goodyear. I always hated Firestone and never knew why, but it's starting to come to me. Love every Michelin I ever owned to add some more.
You never told the difference between LT and P either which was my original question.
Anyone else want to take a stab at it, then give it your best shot because I can't see that much difference in the published specs.
I was thinking the same thing, you just beat me to it.
