Need Tire Help...Please
Are options for our vans very limited, or am I just clueless so much about this load rating stuff that I don't know what to ask for? I don't really want to change the factory rims out, this is a work van and spending money on rims isn't in the budget, but I would like a pair of decent road tires, hopefully more than a 30k tire, that improves handling and road noise a bit from the cheapo factories the van shipped with.
Can anyone provide some feedback on
a: What I need to consider for load rating? I rarely have the van loaded down, and if I do, it's with 4 dogs and maybe 200 pounds of gear.
b: More of a road tire, akin to something on a sedan or family car than a "cargo van tire" that will fit the factory wheels and is readily available in the US?
Thanks so much for anyone's input.
