Need help breaking this code!

I swear, this stuff is just jibberish. I've tried to find a thread on the topic but don't know how to word my search. I'm in the market for some new tires, and I'm trying to figure out what the difference is with these two.


LT265/70R17C1 112Q W
LT265/70R17E1 121Q B

Same tire. I get the LT and the tire width/ rim diameter and all. My issue is with the C1 112Q W/ E1 121Q B. Any help?

C = 4 ply tire
E = 10 ply tire
Q = 100 mph tire ?

Bottom line is the C is a lighter duty tire and the E is a heavier, stiffer tire. I run E tires on my F250 that hauls my rig, cattle, and hay. The C should be less expensive and ride a bit better.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Sweet man, thanks. That's what I figured. Any guess on the W and B?

Never mind, I just asked my buddy that works at a tire shop. The "W" means it has white lettering, and the "B" is just a black wall tire.
