I have been running Les Schwab XTX tires on my half-ton Chevy 4x4 with
good results, though I still get an occasional flat from rock
punctures on gravel roads. The tires are "C" load rating. The all-up
weight of the rig is 6100 lbs. I would like to get better protection
from punctures, as at my age it is a real chore to change a wheel.
My question is what are the trade-offs of upping the load rating on
the next set to "D"? Will I see any difference in tire tread wear?
Any difference in the ride? Any adjustment to air pressure? Any
reduction in punctures?
Thanks . . . Kurt
