SERVICE DESCRIPTION

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

Performance

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 1 out of 5 by Great smooth quiet tire These tires changed the ride quality of my cargo van. It is now smooth and quiet. Also has great traction in wet and dry condition. I'm very impressed. December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 75k miles easy I put over 75k miles on the old tires, with no problems at all. These are the best tires i ever put on my Jeep, and the third set i put on my Jeep, these are my kind of tires. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service Had a great experience. Service was friendly and fast. Tires ride well and have good handling. I have owned them for about 3 weeks. Will buy here again. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by reliable safe product Very smooth quiet ride and good traction in snow ans icy conditions. Should have bought them sooner. December 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth Ride Put these tires on our 99 Lexus RX300 about 3 weeks ago. Immediately noticed a smoother ride. We took a 700 + mile round trip and they felt good. Heading into cold region soon so we will know how well they perform in snow. Pep Boys did their normal good work. Made appointment on line...all was ready when I arrived. Great service! Oh, not sure if I would purchase again because I just got them. See how they hold up. December 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Tires Much better than the Goodyear Wranglers in had on there! December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Tire, Great Price I got this tire during a promotion for buy 3 & get 1 free. Money was well-spent. Tire rides nicely over regular roads & digs in when the need arises. Highly recommend this tire. December 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great "ROUND" tire @ an even greater price! ! ! ! I HAVE BOUGHT MANY TIRES FROM PEP BOYS OVER THE LAST 30 YEARS. i HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD SET OR EVEN A BAD TIRE. WITH ONLY A FEW THOUSAND MILES ON THESE TIRES THEY SEEM TO BE THE SAME QUALITY TIRE I EXPECT FROM PEP BOYS. November 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire Not the tire i went in for, but is the tire I left with...very happy about it . November 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for your money The Definity Dakota H/T's are great. Reasonably priced, they perform as well as the higher priced tires. November 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value Nice ride and handling. November 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good so far It has been only 2 weeks so I can't comment on tread life, but so far I am very satisfied with my purchase. I rolled in with 4 bald tires on my minivan. After an alignment and 4 new balanced tires I've noticed a huge improvement in how my vehicle drives. I felt much more confident during a recent rain storm. I feel these tires are a great value - with a good warranty. November 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too soon to tell! A balanced product review is not realistically possible at this time, because the tires were put on two weeks ago. Since installation, the tires have made the current ride quieter, comfortable, and more responsive around turns. There hasn't been any rain or snow to test out 'bad' weather traction. November 7, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by POOR QUALITY AND DESIGN The first 10,000 MILES were pretty good. The tires ride nice and are pretty quiet! But then the problem started. They now are not safe to drive with in the rain. they hydroplane, and traction is so bad that taking off is very difficulty to do with out spinning. they are so bad that you can not even try to pass on the interstate as I loose traction just changing lanes at high speed! Currently working with Pep Boys to exchange these tires our for a better all weather set. November 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Tires on my car , great experience I had scheduled an appoint for new tires, everything went as planned, I oredered my tires ahead of time and the whole process took less than an hour and a half. I also got my rebate information when complete. Great experience and well managed store October 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires Comparing to my old set - excellent tires. Handle the road well in every weather. October 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good so far! This wasn't my original choice for tires. But pepboys said the tires I wanted would take up 10 days to come in and these Definitys are comparable and a few dollars cheaper. So I bit the bullet and am thoroughly satisfied. Grips great in wet conditions and at high speeds on the highway there is no vibration or loud humming. I will definitely be looking to these tires again in the future, Thanks Pepboys for your great service! October 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great quatlity and Price I ordered everything online and made the appointment to have them put on. Easy and smooth I got the best price on the best tire I could afford. October 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire for the price Decent ride and quiet. Traction on these are not as good in the rain as my previous Yokohama AT tires. However they cost significantly less. Have not had the tires long enough to know the durability. October 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far these tires ride and handle well The install was time consuming over three to mount and balance 4 tires,employees got distracted too many times! October 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistent quality! Have used this brand and style for the last three sets of replacements and none have ever failed. I get great overall mileage between replacements, too. September 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by tires good that is all i have to say if you do not like it i will not do review September 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised Had two new Dakota H/T tires installed on the rear of my jeep and noticed an immediate difference. Much quieter and much smoother driving. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires, Great Value I purchased four 265x70x16 and they were mounted, balanced and installed at my local Pep Boys five thousand miles ago. They have great traction in both wet and dry conditions, quite and they did the best balance job ever. In addition, the price was the best in the area. Next time I need tires, I will be back for the same. September 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires, smooth riding, excellent! I've put over 1600 miles on these tires driving South already, and the ride was smooth and quiet driving. I feel I made the best choice for the money, excellent handling on the road too! Thanks, Pep Boys! Sincerely, Geoc7 September 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for price This entire purchase experience was very satisfactory. I was able to shop for the tires online, compare prices and tire specifications, and schedule the appointment for service. Everything went flawlessly and I have been very satisfied with the Dakota H/T tires. Went on vacation last week and the ride was very smooth and there was no road noise to contend with. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase. September 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires Excellent Traction! Excellent Balance! August 31, 2013
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
