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 & 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 Great Price/Great Service The tire was exactly what I needed for my RV. The price was unbeatable. Even though I didn't have the discount code, the manager offered me free mounting for the discount. Will definitely buy all my tires from PepBoys in the future. September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tires Great tires for a dually. October 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by quality tire for reasonable price I have used these tires before. Good traction in summer and winter. A quality tire for a reasonable price. September 22, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Why not replace the FLAT?? Purchased 4 tires for my 97 Jeep Wrangler. Wanted the 4 old Dunlop tires changed (3 were on the Jeep, the 4th was flat and on the spare tire mount on the back). These rocket scientist changed the 4 tires that were on the Jeep and left the flat on the back. Told my daughter that they could not mount the "spare" much sense does it make to take a tire that is fine, remove it and place a new tire on it when there is a tire that is flat?? In case they didn't know, a Jeep’s spare tire is generally the same as the other tires on the Jeep unless the owner goes the cheap route. Now I get to pay to have the "spare" re-mounted because I guess Pep Boys wanted another $20 on top of the $544 that they just received. This was the first and definitely the last time that I will spend any money at a Pep Boys business. Too bad I cannot give a negative star which is what they should have as a result of their ignorance (for lack of a better word).. August 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value! replaced front tires with the futura on a '01 ford f-250 about a month ago. happy enough to be going back to replace the rear. can't beat the out the door price (my suggestion)! July 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire I had 4 of these installed on a Dodge Dually Diesel on the back wheels and I like them better than the over priced Hankooks on the front of the truck! Great value. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good, so far bought these because I didn't have the money for the better tires,, so far they have exceeded my expectations,,, I use them on a 3/4 ton 4x4 truck to pull a 14 foot trash trailer,, got stuck the other day on a sandy road and knew I would end up having to be pulled out by a tractor as the road was a mile and a half long and the sand mud was over the top of the tire next to the rim,, put in 4 wheel drive and thought I would see how far I could get and after stopping once to walk off the shakes, I went all the way through on these street tires,, if they last any time at all I'll be buying more, have 3000 miles on them and can tell some wear, usually get about half of rated mileage on my tires October 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great price, great tire, even in hd application best price anywhere for this tire, being a 10ply they get pricey, my 95 k3500 4x4 dually needed tires desperately so I looked everywhere, all the big places and online, even recapps but these beat them all, excellent in the rain and mud traction was awesome. I cant stand being robbed for tires so these made my day. and the installater did a great job balancing them where I don't have a nagging vibration I did before. hats off...I would ofput pics actual tire since the picture in the description does it no justice, but the crummy website dosent allow from a normal jpeg October 25, 2015
