P stands for p-metric as opposed to metric or euro-metric.

For LORD OF WAR.... What size were your RVXT's, what year did you buy them, what PSI did you use, & how many miles did you get on them ?

Those were 285/75/16, I bought them in 2005 or early 2006, I ran them at 31-35 PSI (cant really remember, and I probably got like 35k out of them.

My f150 came with 'P' rated tires. Only 4 ply. I now have 6 ply (load range C) on there and the ride didn't change. My ranger on the other hand came with load range D tires stock and I went to load range C. FWIW the 6 ply tires on my f150 now have a max psi of 44

Stay away from P tires. C range tires really are the best on the Ranger I think. They are not too rough, but provide a much more stable tire.
I'm not a huge fan of the BFG A/T myself (or any A/T in general), but it is a pretty good tire. They look like they would hydroplane, but they really don't much at all. Several of my friends in Oregon ran them on the trucks and SUVs and loved them. They cake up in the mud, but that is it. There are a ton of people in the Pacific NW that buy them year after year. Look around for Discount Tire/ Americas Tire, they usually run good prices and they will price match. Costco carries BFGs as well, although I don't remember how their prices are.

you can't go wrong with the BFG AT's. i never hyrdroplaned with mine. my dad ran them on his old sierra and got 80k miles on them and still sold em on craigslist for 250 bucks when he traded that truck in on his new sierra. he has the nitto terragrapplers on his truck now, and i love them. everytime i've driven his truck in any type of weather and offroad they do very nicely. and have a pretty aggressive look. but low noise and great ride. they will probably be my next tire.

Max PSI and what you should run them at are 2 totally different things.

I agree. I was just saying that my 'C' rated tires don't run at 50+ psi
