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 4 out of 5 by from Great Price! The Dakota Definity H/T tires obviously are not on the very top of the market for this type of tire.... but when it comes down to having a -reliable- -good- and -decent quality- tire the price cannot be beat!!! Unless your a race-car driver or mud-bog driver - honestly don't be oversold on this feature or that... a tire is a tire is a tire for the average everyday car. That said the price cannot be beat on these great tires!! Tires themselves: smooth! quiet!! great traction even off road!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great riding tires with good prices. I've Always bought 60,000 mile tires for my Silverado. And this time was no different. I needed a great 60,000 mile tire with good reviews at a place I felt at ease about. Not just anyone works on my truck. So I done my homework on Pepboys and now I tell other people in our office to use them. I actually referred a young lady just last weak to have her car serviced by Pepboys in Bessemer, Al. She was treated professionally and fairly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tire I put a set of four on my 2003 Ford Expedition about two years ago. We have 40,000 miles on them and have had no problems. They are made by Cooper Tire in the USA which is another plus. I am going to put them on my other car soon. Love these tires made in the USA. PEP Boys replaced one that had a nail in the sidewall no questions asked thanks to the roadside warranty I bought with the tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dakota h/t Great tire! A little skeptical at first concerning tread design. I thought the tires would be noisy. That isn't the case. Great grip whether dry or wet. Smooth comfortable ride. Would definitely buy again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from smooth ride and quiet the tires look great and the price was right .the service was outstanding and I recommend Pep Boys to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed improvement Although the tires have only been on the car for a relatively short period of time, the improvement in ride comfort, better handling, reduced road noise are welcomed changes to daily driving. With all of the "perks" being offered, the final price was well below the original estimate. The team at our local Pep Boys center were helpful and easy to work with as they made every effort to provide friendly and courteous service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well below expectations for a budget tire The tires did not get to 30 thousand miles and needed replacement. Driving was mostly hiway - inflation was good, tires serviced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value These tires are great. This is the second set I have owned. Great ride, low nose, priced right, great warranty. Had a set of these before, very happy with them. I'll get them again when these wear out, if I still have this same truck.No other tire I researched came close to the value of this tire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased w/tires and Pep Boys service I had couple of reservations on going to unbranded tire, but my annual mileage is very low so expensive tire did not make sense. After a month I am extremely pleased w/both the tires and service. I bought 4 tires, w/alignment for 2000 F150. I was very pleased to find Pep Boys did a spin balance as part of package. The ride is great, low road noise. I await the rebate and to see how the tires wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do recommend this tire Bought 4 of them for an Isuzu Rodeo. As passenger tires they are, the rolling noise is very low ( or none) and the compound feels very smooth on road. Got a brother who put a lot of miles on them without any complain, that's the main reason for my purchase on this tires. The price was right and the rebate came quickly. I'll buy another set for my Vehicross.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and smooth ride These tires are great. They make my Honda Element feel like new. I can't wait for the snow this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires! After 4 months of city and highway miles totaling 5,000 miles. Not even the front tires show signs of wear. Smooth, responsive, and good traction on dry and wet roads. Have not been in the cold weather and will not till this coming winter on trip to Colorado.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy...very disapointed If I could retun them and get my money back I would with no second thoughts ! Wasted my money very hard tire, rough bumpy ride, noisy, poor poor traction

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good and bad This tire rides nice, it is quiet, handles great, looks good, price is good. But do not even think you will get 60,000 miles as promised. After 30,000 miles these tires are actually bald!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tire I bought 4 tires from Pep Boys in 2006. I put over 60,000 miles on them. they held up great. I put them on my Jeep Liberty, and they gave a great ride. I would have no problem with buying them again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible in rain You're better off buying Michelin or Goodyear. They're well worth you and your family's safety. If you're on dry pavement these tires are fine.
