Regardless of the tire category type, all passenger car, SUV, CUV, and light truck tires share certain basic components.

TIRE SIZING MATTERS
Tire sizes can be a little confusing, sometimes. When you look at your existing tire’s sidewall, you’ll see a number and letter sequence that looks something like this: 235/70R16. The first number, 235 for example, is the tread width in millimeters, “70” is the aspect ratio of the sidewall, and “16” is the tire diameter, which should always match your wheel’s diameter.
Always remember that each size comes with specific trade-offs. Most of the truck owners simply keep the factory tires that came with their vehicles. And yet the nice thing about tires is they are customizable. And that means you have the freedom to go and beefy.
Lift tires are 35″ or larger and give your truck a big boost. But keep in mind, these tires also hurt fuel efficiency. Some owners of off-road vehicles choose to stay within 33″ range or less in order to avoid making their ride look like a monster truck.
Take a look on how it’s fit perfectly in a 2016 Ford F-150 on a Rough Country and Ridge Grappler 33×12.50R18LT tires. Running in the wilderness and grinding over rocks. This wheel size is intended to ensure a stereoscopic look even when the narrow size is used. (insert the photo)
And when you think sizes were complicated! All-terrain tires come in three varieties, based on the loads they’re designed to handle: P/Euro-metric, LT, and flotation.
LT stands for light truck (you’ll see LT ahead of the tire size). P-metric sized tires are the ones with the “P” at the beginning of the tire size and Euro-metric is the contrary.
Getting P/Euro-metric all-terrains in your vehicle’s stock tire size is the easiest and most effective way to gain traction off-road and in winter weather without sacrificing too much in the way of road manners. CL power mechanical team recommends only upgrading to an LT tire if you drive a lot of gravel.
In either case, you should look up your vehicle’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), found online, inside your doorjamb, or in your owner’s manual, and make sure any tire you fit is designed to support at least a quarter of that weight.
WHICH ALL-TERRAINS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU?
The main method for picking an all-terrain tire is to first figure out what size and load capacity do you need, then to look around for the tire with those numbers that has been developed most recently. Assuming that materials and manufacturing technologies advance over time, you need to figure that should result in the latest and greatest product. But just to be sure, you need pull up a tire’s specs and compare them with competitors. The point of comparison that’s most important? Weight. For all the reasons, a lighter tire is a better tire if it otherwise provides the load capacity, durability, and traction you mainly require.
