Speed Rating
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
Treadwear: 440
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 190 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad Tires I bought these tires based on BFGoodrich's (I thought) reputation for quality. I bought 5 (spare, too) Long Trail tires and with less than half of their tread used up all of them have cracking on the edge of the tread on the sidewall. One it is all the way completely around the tire and looks like it will completely separate at some point soon. Very, very unhappy with these tires and will tell all my friends to avoid them, also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great long lasting tires Have just replaced my BF goodrich long trail T/A tires after 7 years of use with the same exact tire because I like them so much and feel they have proven to be a quality tire. Also a very nice, tough looking tire. Would buy BF Goodrich again in the future. April 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Don't expect to get the 60000 miles. Long Trail TA gives 60,000 mile warranty. Mine lasted (to 4/32 tread left) 36,000 miles. The tires that came on the Honda Pilot lasted 50,000 miles. Don't think I will go back with Long Trail TA. Got to be something that at least comes close to the warranted miles. April 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Radial Long Trail T/A are Great Tires! I have had these tires on my 2000 Ford Expedition for 69,000 miles. They are great tires bottom line. I have no complaints. April 9, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Done with BF Goodrich I bought a full set of tires a little under 3 years ago, I just found out that a little under 27,000 miles I am being told that they won't even pass inspection. The mechanic that has worked on my truck even had an extremely difficult time getting them to balance, It had to keep going in several times before they could finally get it balanced correctly. April 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product I have a 2004 F-150 and this tire was original equipment. I have purchased two subsequent sets of these tires and out of the three sets of tires I have 265,000 miles (almost 90k miles/set). Also very smooth riding tire if you keep properly inflated and rotated. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire This Tire lasted me 64,000 miles. The manufacture says good to 50,000 .They would have lasted much longer if I would have been better in rotating the tires. The ride is very soft and smooth, with low road noise, and they perform excellent in the snow. I live in ND, so the weather conditions are very extreme here as you may know.. Ice snow -40 degrees at times & heat 90+... The manufacture puts these on the Nissan Frontier as the OEM tire.. I bought them again, and hope to get 70,000 miles on them this time. January 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Save your money Don't buy this tire! Purchased this tire for my Ford Escape 2009. Worst tire I ever purchased. Road noise is terrible. Grandchildren ask me to turn up radio volume so they can hear the music. Ride is hard and noisy. Tires have a flat spot in morning until I drive a few miles. I have kept them balanced,aligned and rotated as recommend but this has not helped. Do Not spend your money on these tires. By another brand perhaps Michelin. I will definitely not purchase this tire or even B F Goodrich. Disappointed in what use to be a fine American product. December 16, 2013
