Nearly any type of tire, if it is the correct size, can work on a truck; it depends on your intended use for the vehicle. If hauling heavier loads like what you might in the bed of a pickup truck or on a trailer is the goal, a light truck tire could be the correct choice. Touring and passenger tires are options if you intend to primarily drive on the road and rarely hull cargo. Off-road enthusiasts might be interested in all-terrain tires or even mud-terrain tires for their truck.
Light truck tires are designed for owners who intend to haul heavier loads with their vehicle either in its bed or on a trailer. Made from thicker rubber compound than passenger tires, LT tires tend to be more durable. Passenger truck tires have thinner sidewalls than their LT counterparts, which helps lead to a smoother ride.
