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: 460
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 Tire I have used Michelin MXV4 on my 1982 Volvo GLT which has no winters since new and I never got the mileage out of them because the rubber would disintergrate with age prematurally and the same happened with Pirelli PR6s tires. I then thought... I might be stepping down in the tire world.... and decided to try the B.F.Gooderich g-force Super Sport tires and I have to give B.F.Gooderich a thumbs up! They stand up to ultra violet light excellent....the ride is just as good as the MXV4s and the handling is like the Pirelli PR6 maybe even a bit better. They stay black on the sidewalls a long time reducing substantially the amount of sidewall black dressing that most people use on there tires. If you drive at normal / spirited highway speeds like I do with the odd fast cornering .......and keep the tires inflated at 35PSI consistently.... along with consistent front end will get above average to perfect performance with these tires and should have no complaints. I have about 45000kms on these tires at the moment and I would definately buy these tires again! from Toronto, Canada October 16, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Did not last They only lasted 14,000 miles. I will not buy these again. April 10, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not live up to Goodrich ratings These tires wore below the wear bar after only 33,000 miles. My fuel mileage dropped > 5%. Handling and winter driving is above average. These tires are also very noisey. February 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not your fathers tire This tire is about perfect for my driving style. I run fast, cornering requires serious G-loads, and stopping must be hard, fast, and precise. This seems to be a really good fit for my Quattro. Unlike other performance brands in an AS design, this tire doesn't start to let go way before it will, making you think you are crashing so you back off way sooner than needed. This tire hangs in there much longer and when you have exceeded its limits it is not a catastrophic failure and is quite easy to bring things back under control. It's wet traction is amazing, deep water is really good - not as good as an earlier BFG (with a narrower tread), but way better than any other tire I've driven on recently. Snow performance is mixed - dry and crunchy the tire is outstanding, in wetter soft snow I need to slow down a bit - the width of the tread lets me get up on top of it where I loose a bit of traction, really soupy snow and water is much like deep standing water. This is not a snow tire but does a pretty good job. The ride is not as smooth as some but more than acceptable, the noise is barely perceptable through the suspension but really quiet outside. Turn in is quite quick and precise. This is a very predictable tire. I have them on two of my quattro's, a FWD Jetta, and a Corolla. Great performance on all, reasonable wear on all. I've recommended this tire to my neighbor and a friend, both were impressed and replaced them with the same. It's the only tire I've had mounted on my car that will corner to where my CD player will mistrack. This is a great tire at a very good price. If you are looking for a tire that is very very safe under most driving conditions this one is deffinately worth considering. November 24, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by worst ever tires, must be others rejects These tires are junk, lastes well less than 30,000 miles and show they are 50,000 mile tires. Now I have to buy new, it will not be BF Goodrich! November 21, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall very good Replaced OE Goodyear Eagle GT's with these. The OE tires were noisy and rough riding. The Goodrich seems to have a little less steering precision, but are a lot quieter and are less prone to hydroplaning. They do ride somewhat better than the Goodyear, and handle about the same. Fuel mileage is not quite as good though. September 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tires wore out faster ... Tires wore out faster than I would have liked but overall great tires December 1, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by uneven wear; outside ... uneven wear; outside tread rows wearing more than inside; very noisy; performance in winter conditions only fair. November 22, 2010
