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 Nice tire, great service! I have less than 500 miles on the tires, so I can't say anything about the life of the tires, but my truck drives like a new one. The alignment and balance is great. Service was great too. Totally satisfied. August 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Far...So Good I only have 500 miles on my tires so far, and they are doing great. The staff did a great job installing and the price was great. I am not sure why I am writing a review on the tires as it is too early to tell...however I will purchase from Pep boys again in the future. August 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by New Tires I am a single woman who doesn't know a whole a lot about cars or for me it was the price and the time to get them on and it was all good...the service and desk help was excellent and I made the appointment online late saturday night and it was done the next morning. I will go here again for service and tires August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Tires! Only had the tires for less than two months, but very pleased with the ride. Initially, I was concerned about buying the Pep Boys brand tire, but the reviews were high for this particular tire and the price was excellent, so I took the plunge and purchased a set. The Definity tires are quieter than original Continental tires on 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid. My wife, the primary driver of this vehicle, said she felt very secure driving through a down pour. I was so pleased with the tires that I decided to buy a set for my 2007 Honda Ridgeline. The ride is now much quieter and smoother. I bought the Ridgeline used and it had a set of General tires that were very close to needing replacement. Since I had an ongoing leak in one tire, the Definity tire was on sale, and I liked the great ride experienced with the Escape, I decided to replace all four tires sooner than I had planned. I am glad that I did. Given that we have had the tires for less than two month, I cannot fairly rate on durability. Tires were bought during he summer, so have yet to experience driving in the snow, August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dakota tires Worked well will be buying two more next year. August 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shipped as three seperate items Easy ordering and prompt service. I was unaware that the items would be shipped separately. They arrived early and in good condition but I was concerned that they had been misplaced or lost in shipping. July 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Tires Bought 4 tires for the rear duels of my f350. Quiet ride and seem to be wearing well. July 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tires and great service The guys over in Slidell, LA are great. They know how to treat a lady. I've had these tires now for about three years. I've had them faithfully rotated and re-balanced each time I've had the oil changed and I'm ready for a new set. The tires handled smoothly, no tire noise, great gas millage and have lasted the 60,000 miles. I'll keep going back....great job boys! I highly recommend. July 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really like these tires I'm giving these tires only 4 stars because I haven't had them for long. So far I really like them. The ride is very smooth and they have great handling in water and all road conditions. I would definitely recommend them. July 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's hard to know what they did right for what they didn't do, Did not reset the oil change light(what does this mean?) Although I asked them to change & lube & check all fluids, the wiper fluid light came on just a block from the business... I don't know how much to trust them now. June 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great experience at Pep Boys in Vineland, and love the tires. These tires ride smooth - definitely a passenger tire (not for off road or truck work), which is what I was looking for. Great handling for a fantastic price. Hopefully they wear well! Fantastic service at Pep Boys Vineland, NJ. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, great ride, excellent choice Far superior in quality and ride to the set previously purchased at Towne Fair Tire. Glad Pep Boys came to the area, will be using them from now on! June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires at a Great Price Needed to replace all 4 tires on my 2011 Honda Pilot. These tires are better than the original tires - they ride quieter, excellent traction in the Florida summer rain, and a very nice price with the buy 3 get one free rebate deal. June 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ride. The Definity Dakota tire is everything that is advertised. June 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth ride Service was great and the tires ride nice. June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive Originally I had ordered the Futura Scramblers (4) for installation on my Jeep, however upon arrival I was told the Scramblers were not in stock, and I was offered the Definity Dakota tires for the same price, plus discount and mail-in rebate. Turned out to be a good deal, very happy about the accommodation. I love my new tires, the tread is superb, ride is smoother, and they make a wet road feel dry. June 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires! I really shopped for the right tire for my car and my budget. As a new customer, I took a chance with the DEFINITY DAKOTA H/T tires . I have been delighted with the tires, my car rides great, looks great.I look forward to the many miles ahead.! June 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by this tire as good as other major brand this tire just as good as michelin but the price. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent ride I replaced a set of Kumho tires on my 1990 GMC with these tires. The change was dramatic. They are quieter by far, smoother riding and give better road feed back. June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good I have not had a problem to this point. I don't expect to have one. The tires are what I expected. June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good road feel a grest ride soft tire June 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Value, Nice Ride Have had the tires for a few weeks and very satisfied with the ride. Only time will tell if they last the advertised distance, but they are replacing another set from the same manufacturer that exceeded their mileage expectations. May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good price and fast install Tires were offered at a good price in addition to an online special discount and event sale. Have put on approx. 1000 miles where traction on paved roadway has been good, and tires have been very quiet in replacing a mix of 2 Goodyear Wrangler RT's and 2 Michelin LTX M/S2's. May 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value For one of the least expensive tires I could find, this is a good tire in my opinion. First, very little road noise. I've only had them a short time but in that time I have seen wet and dry roads. So far I'm pleased with the traction on wet and dry surfaces. They provide a smooth, secure, quiet ride. So far very pleased. May 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good rideing tire. Good ride,low to no noise going down the road. I would reconmend this tire to a friend. May 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good. I've only had these tires a few weeks. They ride and handle very well, AND they're made by Cooper Tire, USA, which is a very important to me.If I have any problems, I'll do another review. May 20, 2013
