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: 400
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 5 out of 5 by GREAT TIRES I've been running B.F.Goodrich tires on all my cars and trucks sense the 80's have never had any problems with any of there tires and just last year we replaced all 6 vehicle's tires and believe me my wife is the roughest on the tires of the cars she drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Traction First time using BF Goodrich product and please to say they have lived up to their name. Recently, purchased a set of 4 tires for my truck and the ride has been smooth ever since. I'm enjoying hearing the sound of the tires gripping the road as i make a sharp corner. Previous tires would give a slip before traction on wet surfaces but with these radials no slip; traction all the way. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The P295/50R15 This is a great tire in this size folks, the best BFG radial IMHO is this size BFG the p295/50R15. I use it on a 15x10 wheel on the rear of my 1981 camaro. Being this size, it offers better ride and handling and wears good in every day driving. In this car its good to get the most tire in the rear you can stuff in it. This size is even better in the rear of the lighter weight vehicles as the wear character is slightly better on a 2800 lb car like a cobra kit car or 1973 comet for example. And I cant find anything wrong with this size radial, except I only use a slick at the track anyway, this is a great tire yall they should never get rid of it ever or change it Ive been buying since I was 16 and is the only size radial I buy for the rear of a car. outy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Radial T/A, very impressive. A quick background: former auto tech and engine builder. I have a thing for tires...why? Only thing that touches the road ( hopefully ) is your tires. Why skimp? I thought I would be skimping when I purchased 4 215/70 14 Radial T/A tires for my '68 LeMans. Archaic tire for an archaic car. WRONG. The suspension is all new but not "modded", 4 wheel power drums and a stock 7/8" front anti-sway bar, no rear bar. These tires are flat out amazing. Well engineered, excellent construction and great road manners and attributes...which means, stop or go, you are doing well. The car's handling is amazing with the tires...truly, if you can drive, it's a really exhiliarating experience to throw an old boat round the corners. I know I could rebuild the suspension as a psuedo road racer and pull a G on a skidpad but why? For a sane person, these tires and a suspension and steering in great shape are all you neeed. BFG, you have a customer for life. August 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by decent tire I purchased tires for a modified s10 pickup looking for better grip after the modifications. At first these tires were very quiet and very grippy. Then came the noise at moderate speed. These tires really hum a tone at 50 mph to 70 mph. The grip has never faltered but I will be looking for QUIETER tires to replace them with when the time comes. They are just too noisy July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have bought this product before, great Have used this procut before and will again because have been very pleased with their performance. I don't drive as much as I used to but want to know that I am driving on tires that I know I can trust, no matter the road condition. July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Radial T/A's Having operated a Classic Mustang restoration facility for over twenty years, I never installed anything but B F Goodrich Radial T/A tires for quality, safety, and eye appeal. There simply is no substitute. June 30, 2013
