Are van tyres worth the extra money?

Can you tell me if van tyres are worth the extra cash? They are more expensive than car tyres, but look the same.

As the name implies, van tyres are designed specifically for heavy duty use, with stronger sidewalls and harder wearing rubber. My advice would be to spend the extra on the van tyres, because they’ll last longer and offer better grip under heavy loads.
