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.
Standard 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 4.7 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires. I run these tires on my daily driver (85 ford f-150) which sometimes gets used for hunting. They have excellent traction off road and are quiet on the highway. I have friends that I have seen try to destroy these tires while off-roading with rocks and sticks to no avail . That is why I purchased them. These are probably the only tires I will purchase for my truck as long as they are available, because of quality, value, and durability. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good LT Tire I was a bit hesitant to buy this "off brand" tire because I didn't know much about the company. The price was so much better, that I finally decided to give it a try. The tire is very similar to the BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A tire with similar tread patterns. A few days after getting the new tires, we went off to the mountains to enjoy the colors of fall. It had rained the previous day, so I decided it would be a good opportunity to check out the new tires. The tires did very well until the clay infused mud filled in the tread (which made them drive like bald tires). For that trip, I wish I had some mud tires, but I am confident that the Dakotas will be fine for most conditions. The tires have an aggressive A/T look, but they ride very quiet and smooth. I haven't noticed any additional road noise over my previous Michelin LTX M/S tires (which are great, but expensive). The next real test will be in the snow as we drive to the top of a mountain for a week of skiing in the Rockies. I am hopeful this tire will be as good in snow as the LTX. Bottom line: I highly recommend this tire. November 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing tires Got these tires as a replacement for my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport. Absolutely amazing tires, great for on and off road alike. Service was efficient, price was terrific. Waiting for the rebate so I can put the matching tire on as a spare! A must get set! July 26, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking tire The tires ride great and if they last as long as my Goodyear tires I think I will have a winner July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire for the money I have purchased these tires for the past several years for my trucks. I use my truck for hunting and long trips to Kentucky from Louisiana. However over the years I have only gotten one set of tires that didn't make the 40,000 mile mark. I have also never had a flat or blow out with these tires. Great service record for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased I was very pleased with my tires and saved money too. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent all purpose off road tire I've had these tires on my truck now for about two years. The tread is wearing even and I am very happy with the tread wear amount over the last two years of driving. They perform really well in deep snow and mud. I do considerable off roading and these tires have never failed me! They are very worthy of consideration over other famous brands! March 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good A/T tire at a reasonable price. This is the second set of Dakota AT I have owned. First set of tires lasted for 40,000 miles and had 8/32 of tread remaining at time of replacement. The original set I had a tread separation occur, in defense of the tires they were 11 years old and out of warranty. I purchased the tires during buy one and get one free promotion and 10% discount for purchasing on line making the price very attractive. Tire noise is minimal on highway thus you give up some wet traction which was noted on boat ramps even in 4wd low wheel hop and spin occurred. Over all Cooper tire has done a good job with this tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great traction. Waiting time for installation was normal. Did a great job if also checking my braking system and customer support and respect was great. First time I've ever utilized Pep Boys but after this experience will not hesitate to return in the future. Good prices on tires especially coupled with the "buy 3 get 1 free" promotion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good on wet roads and off road. Yet to see snow? Too soon. November 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire Did a lot of research in the purchase for tires for our SUV. The ride of this vehicle is 100% better with this tire. Are looking forward to the great traction in the snow. November 22, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by would buy again Great improvement in ride quality. quiet, great in rain. BUT the rebate takes too long. They don't advertise that it isn't instant or that it takes 6-8 weeks to get it. So it's buy 3 get one free 2 months later. And the tires are on your car when you find out. I was strapped for cash and that was a big factor in my decision. I might have gone with another tire for a bout the same money. November 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Tire.....Good Value If you`re looking for a good tire at a good price these cant be beat...made by Cooper and backed by Pep boys.....and Buy 3 get 1 free ...whats not to like!. This is my second set and my truck GMC Sierra 4X4 rides nicely on them... good tread for the mud and snow and the occasional beach run and they look are a little noisy at speed (65-70)...

I put the new tires on and it was like getting a new truck . no kidding , the tires I had before were that bad. very smooth and quiet ride , my braking has improved and iam happy with the price I paid. also the appointment scheduler is a dream come true. pep boys were actually waiting for me when I got there. very happy customer. July 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Definity Dakota A/T2 This is our second set of A/T2 tires. We have one set on a Jeep Cherokee and a Ford Super Duty. The Jeep is over 8 months and the Ford just 1 1/2 months. The tires have performed well. I the case of the Ford I have seen a slight increase in gas mileage. The Jeep had damaged a side wall, was replaced with problems. The rebate of the total cost of one tire for each 4 really added the valve. So far Good to Go. May 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value! I bought a set of these for my daily driven 92 Sierra, and I gotta say they are definitely worth the money and more. I haven't done much off road with them but they ride amazing on the road without any noticeable noise. 100% recommend! March 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tire for the money Good tire, strong, looks good rides smooth. I've purchased it with 20% off ! even better!!! March 27, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by tires are great Good tires on my jeep. Not too pricey for big tires and not to cheap February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tire! I've owned these tires for over 2 years now and the tread has really help up! I've used these tires off-road, in deep water, in deep snow, ice, and normal highway driving. My H3 plows right on through! The road noise is excellent! The traction is excellent! Very worthy tire!
