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

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

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

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: 400
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
Temperature
Grades:
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 & Standard 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 4.5 out of 5 by 162 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Straight Line Limited These tires are average because of two significant issues. One: Durability, hit a bump at 40,000 miles and broke a band in the tire. Whop whop whop Two: Cornering, the straight ribs in the middle keep you going straight nicely, but add force demands when you go into a corner. They make you turn harder on the wheel than you would normally do with a more conventionally treaded tire. Sidewall impact absorption is very good and traction overall is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall, very good job. Overall, very good job. Tires may need to be re-balanced (car vibrate a little bid when running at high speed - over 65mph). September 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price, smooth ride, and good tread warranty. I only buy tires at Pep Boys. Other tire stores cannot match Pep Boys. August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Initial Thoughts We have purchased 2 sets of these tires for identical VW Sportwagens in past year. My wifes car needed new tires about a year ago and the brand name tires that came OEM were noisy and expensive. On a 16 inch wheel, the road noise is very low with these tires, and the gas mileage bumped up a few MPG. No issues with the rain here in Florida either. My wifes car gets a short commute so I now we come to the real test. I drive my car about 500-1000 miles a week. My name brand tires lasted 60k, but were very loud, spotty rain performance, and killed the MPG's. After seeing how nice my wife's car drove with the HP800's I knew that was the way to go. My sportwagen has 17 inch wheels, and of course wider, so the tires are not exactly as quiet, but they are just as smooth, and the mpg's did go up slightly over the Pilot MXM4's. Time will tell if the mileage warranty is reliable, but in a year to a year and a half I should be updating that info. First trip out and I hit heavy rain in I-95 and I-4 and had no issues. Road noise was drastically reduced and handling was on par with the pilots. May 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent COMFORTABLE DRIVING AND GOOD DURABILITY. February 6, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Absolute garbage These are 55k tires that I have owned for one year and are already showing significant/unreasonable wear. The most concerning thing about these is their traction, in moderate to heavy rain I find myself skidding or hydro-planing when stopping or turning. Today after our first snow of the season (1 inch) I was unable to get out of my driveway. My Toyota RAV4 is front wheel drive but has traction control. In a one inch slush my vehicle is stuck in the driveway. That is truly pathetic. These are the worst tire I have ever owned in my life and I will now have to purchase a set of snow tires to get out of my driveway on a daily basis. December 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire for the price The tires were better then I expected. They handle well in the rain and dry roads. November 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire Great price My son needed new tires for his car so I shopped around and the only conclusion I came to was Pep Boys 3 for 1 free tire sale. They done an outstanding job, very professional and I would recommend them to anybody that ask. Thanks Pep Boys. November 7, 2015
