Very nice addition! Love the rig...I love it anytime firearms/related items can be incorporated!

Really not needed IMO. Not an overly heavy vehicle, and if you choose a good P series it should be fine.

I'm leaning for a P extra load, but I'm still curious. Everybody I've talked to in alberta so far tells me to go LT for hunting, but ''everybody'' also drive a 1/2 ton or a 3/4 ton trucks, not a 3500 lbs vehicle. I asked here since the forester/outback is the closest popular vehicle to mine.

Thats the difference..On a truck, absolutely, on a lightweight rig, no. Don't mind alberta, if you listened to 90% of the people there you would have a bro dozer. ha ha...

I am not running LT on my patriot, about the same size, weight, ability as a forester. No need. As long as you get a good tire, your golden. Do NOT get Goodyear SR-A. I ran those on 2 rig and were crap!

A lot of people use LT tires on lighter vehicle for off road use due to the thicker sidewalls. They are a bit harder to damage on the trail.

yes...but IMO in lighter rigs, even that is not needed hence the amount of abuse will be less as people most likely will not put their subarus, light jeeps, etc in places that people put their rock crawling Jeeps, tacos, and buggies. They ride like chit on lighter rigs too.

LT's are much better in mesquite brush country with a lot less thorn related flats, and they seem more cut resistant when aired way down. Ride is rougher, so you pick what works.

One thing I was told also (and it makes sense to me) is an LT is a lot less flexible and a light rig might not put down enough weight on it, so the contact patch will be smaller. This would result in a loss of traction vs a more flexible tire. That's why a lot of mud tire comes in C load and not E load.

The lightweight rig with LTs I have seen so far was on an add and he was selling those LTs. It doesn't seem to be very common.
