Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.


Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good tire. Have these on my 2000 diesel 4x4 Super Duty, running a mix of highway & gravel. Excellent traction, wear very well even on the sharp gravel we have here which chews up a lot of tires. Recommend these to everyone I can! REALLY need this tire in more sizes, especially 255/85R16. A size like 235/85R18 would be fantastic! January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire I love these tires.I have a 2000 Ford Excursion 6.8V10 4X4.I bought the tires when I had 67700 miles on my truck and rode them down to almost nothing.Now I have 127000 miles on my truck.If winter was not approaching I would still go with them.I feel if you are going to spend alot of money on tires then why not get your monies worth.Which I did....

Rated 5 out of 5 by great tire really was a great tire 2008 2wd ranger wore them 44k miles and then gave them to a friend who needed some help at that time they measure at 7/32 he has since put on at least 25-30 k my use was mixed wet snow and sand would recomend wish they came in 31-10.5-15 mine were 235-75-15 com tract July 25, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Possibly the worst wear I have ever seen I bought these tires last spring. I drove the vehicle 14,000 miles, of which 7,000 was towing an 8,000 lbs trailer. By mid February one year later the tread measures at a 50% tread loss at the dealer. They seem to offer no benifit any good all-season tire would have provided in adversy conditions. Warranty claim has been filed by the dealer with Goodrich. I am pf the opinion these tires should be replaced by the manufacture at no additional charge. February 7, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by like cats claws in snow have these on 1997 f350 drw .super tire but at 24000 they were wore out .rotated and bal every 5000. only running them on back. that why i on here looking for good grip but more miles October 28, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable and Long Lasting Mounted on a Chevy 3500 dually service truck, fully loaded with tools at all times and pulls a trailer occasionally. Received 50k out of them. October 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Winter Tire Within 100 miles of buying my 7.3L Diesel F250 (7000 lbs. Truck) I had these tires put on. They were great in the winter during several snow storms, great in the spring in mud, and handled well in all conditions while towing upwards of 8,000 lbs. I have over 33,000 miles on since I got them last August, and I have averaged about 18 mpg over that time. They are now down to the wear bar, but I will probably not get another set due to the amount of mileage I drive in a year.I will be sticking with BF Goodrich though. I would recommend these for anyone that only drives their truck in bad conditions, or about 15,000 miles a year. October 11, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not sure about the traction version. Great traction, Very good with heavy loads on my F250SD 4X4. The truck is loaded every day. However, looking at the tire, I found that after 16,000 miles they are almost to the wear bar... I don't spin them or stuff like that. The wear on these tires is bad. August 2, 2011
