What does P or LT mean in the tire size?

P means P-Metric. Usually found on cars and light duty trucks or SUV’s.

LT means light truck.

If our sizes specifically say P or LT, you need to select the correct one. If we don’t show a P or LT, just the tire size, then it fits both the LT and P version of that size.

For example, If your size is 245-70R-17 and we show only 245-70R-17 then it fits all types of that size – P, LT and no designation. If your size is P235/75R-15 and we show a P and LT version, select the P version. If your tire size is LT235/75R-15, select the LT version.
