Tire time

I did a search on low rolling resistance tires and found this site. I read the discussion and most of the info was 3 years old. My questions are, what brands would be best for a 1986 Mazda B2000? Would a passenger car tire give better millage then a light truck?
Thanks Brad

1986 B2000
1973 landcruiser
Chevy 3/4 and 1-ton trucks

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess that a P-metric would be better than a LT series -- unless you go into the high load range tires that allow you to use more pressure, and then of course only if you do use more pressure.

What's the curb weight on that truck?

This sig may return, some day.

if you decide to go w/ car tires, high performance sumitomos on www.tirerack.com are rated very well and are reasonably priced.

205/60/14 is as close as you might get if you have the original wheels.
