I have investigated tires for delivery vans, as they seem to be the only ones with sidewall height 80, and not 65-40 of passenger tires.

lt tires have more reinforced sidewall with more plies and/or usually use bias structure. probably offsets the weight savings you would get from going to a passenger tire.
