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: 520
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.
Excellent Ride Comfort & Excellent 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 & Excellent 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 Good tire, good value I've been driving on a set of Definity Dakota H/Ts on my pickup for over a year now and have been very happy with them. They ride and wear very well in all conditions I recently bought this set for our Honda Pilot. So far, they are doing just as well. I should have been buying these for my car and truck instead of Michelins all along. August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid tires These were the cheapest tires with a top Treadwear rating. 500+ ratings are hard to find for this price. August 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet ride Ride is much more smooth and quiet. Very pleased August 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire for trucks I chose this tire for front of Ford with Twin I Beam suspension due to tread pattern and tread wear warranty. 30 yr professional mechanic so I know what these trucks like and dislike. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and Quiet on my 4Runner Reasonable price, made in USA tires. I changed from the Dakota A/T tires to the Dakota HT tires on my 4Runner and there is a world of difference in the ride. So far I am very pleased. We will see if that holds up for the 60k mile warranty. Gas mileage hasn't really improved noticeably but we'll see on that too. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth I don't anything about tires and bought these because of the price. As soon as I drove out of Pep Boys, I could feel the difference right away. It was like riding on a cloud. July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A smoother ride with these tires So far, so good. With these tires you'll enjoy a quite smoother ride. July 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far,so good Haven't had these on long enough to give a good review. But as of now rides quiet, smooth, pretty good in the rain. The telltale will be wear and longevity. Will review in about 20k April 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tires They seem to be good quality tires. They are noisy, but that's because they are truck tires I guess. I picked them not knowing that (I'm a female, lol). April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tire -Great price! This tire has good wet weather traction and a smooth highway ride. My Jeep Grand Cherokee loves them. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good tire great service the staff was very professional and the product has worked great. No sliding on wet surfaces and overall quiet ride even on bumpy roads. A good tire for the money. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handles road conditions great. So fare has been a great tire. Gripped well being that it has been a long nasty winter these tires have performed great. Handled well on the highway too. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tire purchase Product (tires) seems good so far. I only hope that my truck holds up as long as the tires. March 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good cheap tire only had a couple weeks so far so good March 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire at a great price. My last set of tires were Cooper's which were very good tires. I wanted another set but experienced a blowout on the interstate. I found a Pep Boys nearby and the sales associate recommended the Definity Dakota which he told me that Cooper made for PB . Great tire great price great service. Very satisfied. Thanks PB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dakota on sidewall 4 my dakota truck a match made in heaven...low road noise, nice ride and a good rebate, maybe.. still waiting on rebate. lots to like at pepboys.. i believe.. i believe.. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires at a Great price I purchased these tires for a Toyota Rav 4. We have had the tires for a few weeks and could not be happier. Of course the ride is smoother, but I had read in an earlier review that the ride would be quieter. I could not believe how much roar was eliminated with these tires. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good value I shopped several brands before settling on this one. I found it via the Pep Boys website. Setting up the appointment was very easy. Upon arrival, I was told it would be about 1 hour for them to complete the tire change. It took about one and a half; but no complaints. Apparently, the website establishes the schedule, without consideration for any jobs the shop may already have underway. Tires appear to be wearing very well. Look really good on my Dodge Ram. Handles rainy suburban streets nicely. Great price for a USA made tire with 60K mileage warranty. (still waiting for my one-tire-price rebate) Rated durability 3 stars because I don't know yet - only had them on for less than a month. As a side note - I had a very bad experience with PB mounting shocks on my minivan about 8 years ago, so I was apprehensive to go back. Apparently they have changed for the better. March 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall positive experience Overall good product. March 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by still waiting!!! the tires arte fine i did the buy 3 get 1 free....i did the refund for the one tire on line the next day....still waiting for the check!!!! March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tires, Great value I have had these tires on my 2007 Lexus RX350 for approximately 5k miles, and they ride very smooth. I had goodyear Eagle tires for three years prior, and they rode rough from the beginning. I took a chance with these, as I couldn't pass-up the deal, and I'm glad I did. They're quiet, they ride smooth, and they cost way less than the Goodyear tires. February 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Didn't make it to 60k I'm at the wear bars after 56000 miles. Our truck is not driven hard. Aside from that, can't beat the price of these. They're good tires plus pep boys takes care of me. I'll be buying another set. February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I guess everything is good, On Son's Jeep. As I said there on my Son's jeep. He said they ride nice and he has had no problems yet. But there still rolling so as I said everything is good so far. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Service, Great tire The shop did a fine job - I was in and out within 90 minutes. Great staff - job well done. I will go back for my rotations. February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellant Trip consisted of rain, sand, snow and ice. The tires performed outstanding, and very quiet on the road. I will buy them again in a skinny minute. January 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The tire was flat the very next morning...LATE FOR WORK We had four new tires installed on our vehicle and the next morning we had to call Pepboys because the one of the tires was completely flat. Although there was an inconvenience and loss time they sent person to our home and eventually towed the vehicle back to the Pepboys location to repair the tire. Apparently the tire was not installed correctly and the bead was not sealed. I am glad my wife didn't have an accident due to a flat tire while driving. We asked for a new tire but they insisted that the workmanship was the reason the tire went flat. They simply remounted the tire. We'll have to wait and see. January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features for the money Service was top notch. I didn't have to wait more than 15 minutes to get the tires started. Very pleased with the service and the mentioning of what needed to be serviced shortly. No pressure to buy additional items. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice CSC need a tire fast and didnot have allot of money they found me a tire that would work both financially and good value January 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by The tires were fine byt there were problems with the install I waited for my vehicle. upon completion, I was told that the front end was aligned because both tire rods needed to be replaced.. Further, one of the rims was bent and mounted on the rear. I had a spare tire that could have been used to replace the bent one. I probably won't ever use any of your services again. I would have had Pep boys change the tire rods and I now had to pay form mounting and balancing for the bent rim. Pep Boys, thats alot for poor installation procedures. January 8, 2014
