So the people at the tire dealers (actually all the ones I inquired at) have been trying to dissuade me from getting a LT-rated tire because it has like 10 plies or something, and they say it's going to be extremely stiff.
My other trucks are considered heavy duty class and have LT-rated tires, and they seem fine, and I don't really care about ride quality as long as I don't end up getting stuck in parking lots.
It's not like 'bouncing you into the air' kind of stiff, right? This is likely dependent on the tire pressure...
They're recommending the Wrangler SilentArmors in P-rating instead, which is $1200 vs. $1400 for the Duratracs which only come in LT E-rating. I want to know if it's worth the extra $200. As far as I understand the LTs also have more tread supposedly meaning they last longer...
