Im goin to be buying some 245/45YR 17 kuhmo ecsta MXs to upgrade to from the re070s (as I sold the ones I have now for $500 and that'll cover it and give me some decent rain traction as well). Anyways... what is load rating. As I was looking at the prices I saw that there were two kinds of 245/45 17 ecsta mxs. One was like $125 and the other was $152 or so with the only difference being that it had LOAD RATING: SL on it. Other then that all the reviews were identical and such. Sorry for sounding like a newb, but what is that?

Although 245/45/17 will fit nicely and clear with no problems, you may want to go with 245/40/17 to match the overall stock diameter inorder to get proper readings...
as to price diff. on Kumho's: the more expensive one is 'run-Flat' and that's it...
