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
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 & Standard 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 Sweet tires. These are excellent tires. Drives great , both in town, and on highway. If you upgrade to mud terrain, make sure you have a good steering stabilizer, to prevent wheel shimmy. The boys at Pep Boys gave me a darn good price and good servive. I would easily compare these to the older model BFG Mud terrain. Can't wiat to go 4 wheeling with these. I even bought a spare.. Also, this is my second set. My 2003 4x4 2500 Suburban has the same MT's on, wearing great, load range E. Works excellent is mud and snow. October 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far great Went back and forth looking at a lot of options, everything from re-treads to some new BFG's. I've run a lot of different tires on this truck over the years, almost all of them were 10ply. I always do my homework and I was planning to go with either a Treadwright re-tread or BFG A/T KO2. My primary concern is that the tire is good in the snow but is still capable off road in mud. I wanted a tire with siping, but with a lug design that's self cleaning. The price of this tire was actually less than the retreads would have been. With the discounts and offers Pep Boys was running, I got 4 tires mounted & balanced plus a 1yr alignment for less than the retreads would have been shipped! These are made by Cooper so they're new and US made. Chris in the service dept. was super helpful and eased my mind about going to an 8ply and up to a 285 size. I'm very glad I made those choices. The truck looks great and rides so much better than it did before. Tires are quiet and perfectly balanced, it's actually enjoyable to drive the truck again. Time will tell in bad weather, but I know tires pretty well and I think these are going to work great. August 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by no not happy with the tire was not fully informed on your site the tire was much smaller in size then I had , hoped for May 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by FANTASTIC TIRES These are my second set of tires in 4 years on my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 long bed. PEPBOYS rates these tires at 40,000 miles and I got over 45,000 of course I rotate the tires 3 times a year to get maximum mileage and even wear. These tires grip excellent in the snow and mud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy Got a set on my 2500HD and the do great. They look great and ride very well. Have used them at the farm in some sloppy mud and they pulled me right out. November 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tire is fine, service was slow. I had an appointment in for the install of the tires and it still took 3 hours. September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features Tires give you a great grip to the road, can ride over all types of terrain and still get to where I want to go. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised Good tire, handles mud well and does good on the road so far too. February 6, 2014
