  • Monitor Technology - Consist of Replacement Tire Monitor Technology RTM and Visual Alighment Indicators VAI to aleart drivers of Misalignment and Treadwear conditions
  • Replacement Tire Monitor RTM is an indicatore that is clearly visible on the Tire s center rib. When the tire wears to 2 32 of tread depth, the indicator transform to read Replace Tire alerting the driver a tire change is needed.
  • The Visual Alighment Indicator VAI visually alearts the driver of vehicle mis-alignment allowing a correction before the tires are ruined.
  • Low Surface Abrasion Technology - promotes even treadwear and extends tire treadlife

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
Treadwear: 700
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 4.4 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by loud and hydroplains Bought for 2008 Toyota Sienna. Loud tire. When it hits a bit of water watch out. Bought because of the positive reviews and ratings. October 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by All good so far On 2003 Honda Odyssey - hunted these tires down after seeing great reviews. Very recent purchase so not sure over the long haul but these tires replaced some old Michelins and instantly the driving was much tighter and smoother. At about 80mph it can feel a little off but otherwise a decent price for what is considered a long lasting tire. Wet and dry, no problems. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing wet traction I purchased these tires as a replacement for the factory Goodyear LS2 on my Jeep Patriot. I am very pleased so far. They track well, are very quiet and smooth riding, and have amazing wet traction (a necessity for those Florida rainstorms). A major upgrade in quality from the Goodyear tires at a better price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires Put 4 of these on my 4WD Hyundai Santa Fe. After 8000 miles they are performing wonderfully and show no signs of wear. Car tracks perfectly, they ride quietly, excellent in wet weather, smooth on highway, and performed well in snow. These replaced a set of Yokohama tires that served well for 75K miles. I hope these do the same. June 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for snow Only had them two weeks but I had a chance to test them after a recent snow storm. While everyone else was getting stuck. I was able to zip through our neighborhoods unplowed streets with ease. So far, so good. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy ordering, great price I would order again when in need of tires November 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value and Quality Great value for the price. Obviously well constructed. Deep tread. These are on a Jeep Patriot, solid feel - very good ride. Would buy agian. October 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Price and sale of 20% off sold me tires were installed in a timely manner / vehicle rode sooo much smoother and all is good...all in all a very good experience August 21, 2015
