Tire shop says I need new tires???

Recently bought my 96 f250 club cab 4x4. Had a low tire so I took it in to get it fixed. Discount tire says it has the wrong tires on it and that they cannot touch them.

I've got P 260 75 R16 and I need LT's. He said my truck tires are in danger of blowing any minute because the passenger tires can't handle the load.

Any opinions? Not too anxious to shell out $1,000.

P means they are for a passenger car, what's the load rating? Discount is just covering their but, a small independent shop would probably fix it but I wouldn't expect those tires to hold up too long.

I personally wouldn't run a P rated tire on a truck.

I had the same issue with a flatbed trailer I bought years ago. Some jacka$$ saved $100 by putting P tires on 5000# tandem axle trailer. S0 I shelled out $800 for D rated tires.
