Tire shop quoted me a more expensive tire than I'd hoped to purchase since they insisted the PMC requires an XL tire. I see this is what comes stock with the PMC. So what's the verdict? XL or doesn't matter? I pretty much never load up the van but not sure if that makes a difference. Thoughts?

My 2016 has ContiProContact 215/55/R16 97H. That's a 1609 lb. tire, 51 PSI, 130 MPH. They cost about $ 140 ea.

Tire rack shows a Fuzion brand with the same specs at $68 ea.

The cheapest Riken passenger tires run about $ 60 ea. and the load / pressure drops to 1433 lbs. / 44 psi.

I've heard some employers or inspection stations, maybe even the local law enforcement or ambulance chasers hound people over spec tires, other situations no worries.
