Just to refresh, the load range of a tire identifies its strength and ability to contain air pressure. Most often this information is branded on the tire's sidewall. Every passenger tire has a very specific load range, but when it comes to light truck tires, load ranges are given in ascending alphabetical order. The closer to the back of the alphabet, the more air pressure the tire will need. And that, of course, means the more weight the tires can carry.
When you search Tire Rack, we'll call out Light Load, Reinforced and Extra Load on all passenger tires. If we don't give such a description, you can assume the tire features a Standard load range that's either P-metric or Euro-metric. On the other hand, if you're searching for light truck tires you will find a very distinct load range after every tire description. More specifically, immediately following the size's rim diameter.
