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: 680
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 Very good value had this brand and model on our Odyssey, Camry and Highlander - best value for price; follow rotation instructions and will last over 70K miles September 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by BF Goodrich Advantage T/A I usually buy BF Goodrich tires. It's a good brand. My last tires lasted 55k miles. May 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bumpy Ride Just purchased the 225/50/17 for my 2010 Accord and its like bouncing on a trampoline. Will see if this is how they react ongoing. At this point as of day one, very unhappy. May 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dry rot in between the treads After the terrible chicago area Winter I looked at my BFGoodrich Premium Touring tires to see all 4 of them purchased in September 2010 (now problem was discovered in March 2014--not noticed due to weather extremes this Winter) with 25 K miles on them to find them having some severe cracking from Dry Rot between the treads around the perimeter of all 4 tires. I am now seeking some sort of adjustment due to this premature kind of tire self destruction. I have data and info to take to the BFG dealer and see what happens. The real BAD news is I just put 4 brand new BFG tires of the same classifications on one of my other cars in early December 2013. My third car also has BFG--same classification and I have 2 other cars in need of tires in the next 6 months. We have 5 cars in our family and always trusted BFG tires before. I am hoping for some kind of adjustment on the cracked and dry rotted Premium Touring 215-65-16's. Wish me luck !!! If there is not an adjustment--then there will not be any more BFG's on any of my cars in the future. April 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Giving them 1 more chance After 6,200 mile my Advantage TA 225 55 R17 tire on my Chevy Impala had excessive sidewall cracking (only on the car 7 months, but 29 month old tires according to the DOT #'s), original retailer wouldn't stand behind them, called BF Goodrich direct, they gave me the name of a second retailer that replaced my tires with "new" Advantage TA. After 1000 miles this set of tires looks to be fine, I don't think you could find a tire with a better ride, if they hold up. April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior Tire and Performance This was an excellent choice. By far the quietest ride and comfort for the price. BF Goodrich keep up the work in deigning superior tires. Glad I purchased these quality tires. April 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bald at 40K Miles I got these tires for my Toyota Camry. They drive pretty well. However, after 40K miles, they are just about bald. I am disappointed that they didn't last longer. I rotated them frequently, but they just didn't last. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value Tire Upon purchasing a set of 4 BF Goodrich tires, I wasn't sure if I made the right decision since I had always purchaced another premium brand. For the price, they are excellent tires. Very quiet, smooth and sturdy. That is important to a consumer, knowing there is still value at an affordable price. April 3, 2014
