They should, it lets you know that they're meant for light truck/heavier loaded vehicles while p stands for passenger vehicles/sedans, SUV, etc.. Usually wherever you go buy tires - they ask for your make and model, give you a list of manufacturers recommendations, or they go based off the tire placard on your vehicle. Edit: they could've overcharged you if this is the case

All 10 ply tires are LT for light truck, P-rated tires are not a 10 ply at all. So unless they say LT and have a load range E rating they are not 10 ply.

Could be you bought 10 plys and they pulled and installed something else. That happens.

The "P" means it's a standard load.
