Nitto offers both those sizes with an "LT" designation with increases load ratings. Is the "LT" version necessary for the GC? Or will the regular ones suffice?

Our Jeeps are designated for passenger (P rated) tires and will suffice, but you can use LT.
In my opinion, if you plan on off roading at all, I'd consider the durability of the stronger ply LT tires. Some people push it to E-rated LTs, but I think that's overkill for our setup and is way too heavy. C or D is the highest I was willing to go.
If you don't plan on off roading, save yourself the cash in initial cost up front and in the long run from extra gas because of added weight, and just get the P rated tires.
