    Choice between two tires that had identical sizes and one light weight & one was stiff side wall and one was a W tire with a softer compound than the other that was lite weight with a firm compound. Application is a 3175 lb door car.
    18235 31.5/12.5-15 W* C 13.5" 31.7" 99.5" 12-14" 14" 17.0" D05
    18237 13.5/31.5-15 L*** C 13.5" 31.7" 99.5" 12-14" 14" 17.2" C07
    W has stiff sidewall softer compound
    L is lite weight firm compound
    OR

    I'm no expert, but I've always been quicker with the stiff sidewall tire in a car of that wt.
