Many people still have asked questions about what kind of tires they need for they cars or trucks. In a poll asked from one hundred people regarding the meaning of light truck tires, it was found that only 25% of people actually knew what LT tires meant. Many people have mistaken these tires for off-road tires, or knobby tires. The basic concept of LT tires is that these tires are made to hold more weight and carrying capacity. This is very prominent for trucks and cargo vans that are used for work.
Local tire shop owners have agreed that light truck tires are a commonly searched topic on Google many because they are so expensive brand-new. Major retailers around the nation have stated that the average amount of light truck tires sold through their shops is much less than regular tires. A study from students from The University of Texas at Austin has shown that auto mechanic and tire shop owners are always trying to find LT tires and especially used ones.
Commercial inspection station, S&S, was asked what is the majority of tires seen in their bays, and they answered that most of these trucks are LT tires.
