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 Excellent all around tire and service The tires are quiet yet no difficulty with snowy, icy road conditions northern NM into Colorado. Pep Boys have them perfectly balanced at speed. Happy all around. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First 1,000 miles After buying four DEFINITY DAKOTA H/T 265/70SR15 tires am pleased to say that the Pathfinder road sweet! Thanks to Pep Boys aliment the SUV drives true and all the shaking that was present before with the old tires has been eliminated. December 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by im back i am much happyre with the service i recieved....its been a few years...but this past fall i returned to pep boys...and got better service and the pricing is still great... December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I've only had these tires for a couple weeks, but I am very happy with my purchase. We had a snow storm the day after I had these tires installed and I had no problems getting around in the snow. My Santa Fe got out of my unplowed driveway like a champ. These tires are quiet and ride very smoothly. I purchased them online and made an appointment for first thing the next morning. Pep Boys knew I was coming and had me in and out in about an hour. Great value and great experience all the way around. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by cant beat the price and tire warranty! can't beat buy 3 get 1 free and the tire warrantythe price is great! December 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for an inexpensive tire Tires provide a comfortable quiet ride. They have a higher rolling resistance and decrease mpg by 1-2. They handle well on wet roads and are amazing in snow and ice. Cornering is solid and these tires are an overall good value. December 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tire Choose this tire online had install at local store it looks good and drive really smooth,the sales person was really helpfull great experience. December 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fair priced & Quiet I bought these to replace my 45k mile Definity AT's that were just about bald. I was hoping for a quieter tire with better wet road performance, and so far they have performed exactly that way. November 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire at affordable prices! I recently bought my second set of Definity Dakota tires for my 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara AWD. These tires get the job done in the rain & snow. I got 3 years and 60,000 plus miles out of my first set which is why I went with the exact same tires again. Pep Boys always runs specials to make a full set affordable AND they do free tire rotations which saves a good bit of money over the life of the tires. I highly recommend these tires & Pep Boys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent tires Just bought my second set of these tires. I have an FJ Cruiser and the they have been perfect. they aren't loud and I got more miles on them than they are rated for. And they are definitely rugged. They're also a reasonable price with the buy 3 get 4th free. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You can't beat this tire, for the price Excellent on the road, very quiet, smooth with very little roll-over on sharp turns. Decent off road capabilities too. November 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire for money No complaints so far November 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible mileage and good service We drive a 2009 Ford Escape. We replaced the OE tires several years ago with these tires. We had 55,570 miles on the truck at that time. Several years later we're replacing those with the same tire. Why? We currently have over 140,100 miles on the vehicle. So this is a 60k mile tire and we got over 84,500 miles of service out of them without any problems. In fact, they probably still had another 5k left easily. They were just getting a little too noisy and had less tread that I like to run on (although still perfectly legal and within the officially "safe" range). November 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by these are great tires I've had my new tires for about four weeks, they are great so glad to get these at a fine price. October 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tires so far! These Dakotas arrived quickly and the price was unbeatable. Compared the the Ecosaver Autogrips's we had on our Envoy, these have a much more aggressive tread.. should be better in snow. The day after we had them installed, we went on a 500 mile trip and I was really impressed at how quiet they were and the handling was superb! The white lettering is subtle and looks classy with the factory chrome wheels. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars yet is I have to see how they wear. Hard to tell after only a few weeks. October 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast friendly service The employees were quick to recommend the right product for my vechile and had me in and out in no time! October 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by GOOD PRODUCT / GOOD VALUE Good tire for the $$ and dependable. Like the OWL feature as well . A touch of road noise but on a SUV who cares . They ride soft October 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good I've had the tires for about a month now. They look great and are very quiet. Bought them to put on my 4Runner. Can't beat them for the price. October 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not getting good mileage out of this tire On my 2nd 4 tires. Rides well & great traction but I am only getting about 20k and just about to the wear bars. Keep air checked & at right pressure, rotate @ 3 - 5 k. Think I should be getting more than 1/3 wear on a 60k tire. Many reviews here show decent milage on 4 x 4's though. Used on a GMC 4 x 4 crew cab. May buy again if prorating is cheap enough. September 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent tires I bought my truck w/ a brand new set of these tires and they seemed to put up with quite a bit. Good ride, fair highway mileage, decent tread/grip. The first set lasted about 3 years and about 25,000 miles. I could probably have gotten more if one of the tires had not been damaged by road debris, and the warranty had run out. Wet weather is not a friend of these tires, but I live in the desert, so no problem really. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Experience I went to the website, picked out my tires, and made an appointment. When I arrived at the store, they were ready for me, performed the service properly and professionally. Awesome experience all around. I will definitely be a repeat customer! September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Appropriate and Pleased smooth ride, great traction and customized to my truck - white walls out to show off "Dakota" name since I have a Dodge Dakota. :) September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires, Dakota definity Super fast shipping, great tires, at an affordable price! September 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire, great price! I'm enjoying these tires greatly. They grip well and handle nicely. September 17, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by good tires quiet comfortable ride August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good I've only had the tires for a few weeks, but I can say they are very quiet, and ride nice and smooth. I had my last set of Dakotas for 11 years with no problems. I hope I will be able to say the same for this set. August 16, 2014
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
