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 3.8 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT TIRE i got these tires when i purchases a used 2003 xterra supercharged. they came on it from the dealers and they have been performing amazingly!!!! they were awesome in the snow (which it snows an average of 6in to 9in every time it does).. my truck never moved or slipped and it does NOT have traction control on it. I will only use rugged terrain tires on my vehicles from now on. May 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would definitely buy again My husband has had this tire on his SUV for almost 5 years it has been a great tire. His average commute is 18 miles one-way. We live in Colorado and it has been excellent in the snow. The tires have worn extremely well and are more quiet than we expected for a light truck tire. In fact I just ordered a set for my SUV and I plan on buying these tires from now on. May 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Going back for more These tires are on a 2004 F150 FX4 owned by my employer. I put over 35k miles on a set over the last 20 months. They show a little bet of edge chop at this point, but have handled and worn well overall. Great stability and confidence inspiring, especially considering I do a lot of miles with trailers in tow. One key I've found is regular tire rotation (every 4k to 8k miles) really helps even the wear between tire locations. Looking forward to new shoes! May 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good Just purchased Rugged trail T/A's for my 06 trailblazer and they have a real quiet ride and really absorbs the little bumps that i felt a lot on my old tires. I don't take my blazer baja-ing but I love the off road aggressive look of the tires really sharpens up any 4x4 April 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 12k Mile tire Bought this tire for my 2010 Dodge ram 1500. Tire only last 12k miles. Very poor wear. Horrible traction in the snow. The wet weather is a little bit better. Dry was good. Off road was acceptable since it is an all terrain tire. A little noisy but bearable. April 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by so far so good Have been buying BFG's for years and never had any complaints. The last were All Terrain TA's, and got 70k miles out of them. This time I opted for the Rugged Terrains. A friend asked me some time ago about what tire brand I liked the best and I told him BFG's. He bought the Rugged Terrains and is extemely pleased with them, and he said when it comes time to replace them he will purchase the same tire again. We both use our vehicles on highways, mountain roads and sand. So far I have not experienced any negative issues with them. And will continue using BFG's in the future. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire! put 4 rugger terrain on 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4wd. Great riding and handling tire. Much better ride and stopping than the grappler A/T tire I was replacing. Just purchased but great tire! March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 06 Jeep GC Limited I used to have an 08 JGC and used the All Terrain TAs but you cant get them for this the tire service center suggested I use this tire after taking another brand back because they wore so bad..these are the best I have used on this Jeep and will never buy any other..Jeeps run the outside edge hard on the fronts and these are perfect with the thicker tread on the outside I have used!
