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
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 out of 5 by Great Tire so far Had Goodyear's to start off on My Jeep, then got some AT KO's. Loved these. Had 80,00+ before I had to get new. Had around 60,000 on my Durango, had a massive flat that ruined the tire. Look for new ones and the one dealer suggested the Rugged Terrains. Tire looks great less road noise the the AT's and ride is good so far. Seem to be a little squishy, but bumped up the air pressure and seemed better. Works well so far, good in the wet, can't wait for the snow to see how they work. Hope they work as well as they look. October 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Now my SUV feels better I was looking for a much better tire than the stock on my 2011 Jeep GC. The rep for Michelin suggested that I wait until the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A is released in late Spring. I finally picked my set up in June and boy that was best advice I got. I can report so far the following after 2 months of use: I have not lost any any MPG. The ride is smoother than I anticipated as if it was a luxury touring tire. Moreover, in wet conditions, the traction holds the road with authority and I am far more comfortable than before. In light off-road conditions on gravel roads, lite mud and wet conditions it has been impressive (Cannot report yet on other off-road conditions). A little noisy on the highway, but, not that bad that after while you forget about it. Finally, I can not wait for the winter to see how the tire performs. August 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great looking, and smoother ride I replaced the Firestone factory tires in my 2005 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 with the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain TA in 265-70-16. I was surprised but the ride. It is a lot smoother than the old tires. Beefier looking tires with sidewall bite. August 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted The Best For My Truck! My 07 Ford F150 SuperCrew Lariat 4x4 came equipped with the Rugged Trail T/A. I wanted a tire that had a more aggressive tread, but not as aggressive as All Terrain T/A. This Rugged Terrain T/A was the answer. The pictures on the internet do not do this tire justice. You have to see it yourself. Had a set installed before a trip to Winchester, Va. Driving on Interstate 81 running 75-78 mph and the truck felt like it was on rails. Slightly more road noise from this tire, but my wife made the comment that the truck rode as smooth as her 08 Accord V-6 EXL. No doubt that these tires will handle the winter driving in Virginia. Also with these being Load E rated, if I pull a trailer or haul a heavy load, I know all I have to do is raise the PSI in the tires. Way to go with this new tire BF Goodrich! August 3, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Spend the extra money for the A/T Very soft tire.. if you're rough on them, they will not last long. They did grip well in the "mountains" of Pennsylvania, but bottom line is that they didn't last as long as i would've liked them to. August 2, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by These tires are horrible. These tires are called Rugged terrain, but the nobbies are falling off after two months of driving (7000miles)on dirt roads in AZ. I would be embarrassed to sell this product. The ride is terrible. Poor gas mileage. BFG needs to go back to the drawing board on these pieces. July 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by im rough on tires I live in MN, work in the oilfield in Western ND. I put a lot of miles on my trucks though out the year. I really like how well these tires are holding up. Great traction on the backroads in oil country and great, quiet drive on interstate. July 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great tire, excellent design and function. Top notch design, get into the wet grass and mud with ease, but still maintains a smooth highway ride. Toss the family in the vehicle, go fishing, and look good doing so. June 27, 2011
