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: 440
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 & 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 5 out of 5 by from Great value Smooth riding and quiet versus old Goodyear Eagle ST for 1980 Vette. Sidewalls have a little too much tread wrap to be really perfect but happy for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tire and installation The tires are great quality and thanks to a promotion i got an even better deal, which would have ran me eighty dollars more at another Tire dealer. I'm completely satisfied with this product , but the installation team is another subject, needless to say, i also feel like you get what you pay for. My tires are on aluminum rims and had no damage prior to tire replacement, but once the tires were changed the evidence was obvious, since i only purchased two tires, i had the original to compare too. the outer edges of the rim were damaged, needless to say i understand machines and this might happen a bit, but there has to be some measure in place for people who buy rims and dont want them ruined at the tire shop, when changing tires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the bang for the buck These tires do a great job. They look decent, and the ride quality of my vehicle has improved. They squeal a little easier than my old tires but I'm not too worried about that. For $86 a tire, you simply cannot beat the value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tire, Good value We put two of these on the rear of a Ranger pickup. They have a good looking profile. They handle well, providing very good traction on wet or dry pavement. They seem to be reasonably priced. Hopefully they last for 50,000 miles. Time will tell. Very pleasant experience working with the Pep Boys team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Wet Traction / Overall Performance Good These tires are pretty good. Bought (2) about 2 1/2 years ago, and they still have plenty of tread left. They still look close to brand new. Can't say how many miles I have put on them, as my speedo. does not work. Looking into buying (2) more this week for the rear of my 86' Monte Carlo SS. As long as I rotate them at 6 months, they should do well, as long as I don't do too many burnouts. LOL !!! I wrote handling as one of the cons, but its a big car to me, and don't see it going around corners too well anyway, and I have had the (so called) best tires in the world on it most of its life, and they handle just as good as the Futura Super Sport GLS's
