If you own a pickup, van, or SUV and you find yourself doing a lot of hauling, light truck (LT) tires may be the tires for you. At our tire dealership at Superior Tire, we have a selection of light truck tires to fit the vehicles of customers in Great Falls, MT and other surrounding areas including Havre, MT and Helena, MT.
A lot of vehicles are now outfitted with passenger tires, including pickup trucks and utility vans, because the majority of these vehicles end up being used simply to carry passengers from point A to point B. But if you use your pickup truck, van, or SUV for hauling, you should make the switch to light truck tires. As the tire known as the “little brother” of the industrial 18-wheel tractor trailer tire, light truck tires have a stronger sidewall and a more aggressive tread. Light truck tires are more suited to hauling heavy loads because they can handle weight better than passenger tires and they have a better grip on the road. Passenger tires weigh less, and they offer lower rolling resistance and weaker tread designs – a combination that makes them more fuel efficient, quieter, and ride smoother than an average heavy-duty tire, but they don’t compare to light truck tires when it comes to hauling.
If you’re looking for a tire with an excellent load capacity and the strength to haul any load wherever it needs to go, look no further. Superior Tire has an excellent stock of quality light truck tires that are sure to fit any truck driver’s needs.
