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.
Excellent Ride Comfort & Excellent 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 Great winter tire / awesome value 3rd time I've purchased these tires. Purchased them from Pep-Boys for our full-size van. Haven't mounted them yet. However, I've had the exact same tires on our minivan we had previously, and on my sedan. (3 Wisconsin winters in the minivan on these tires, 2 winters on the sedan). These are great tires for snowy / icy conditions. Performance won't be better on dry pavement or wet conditions, but in the snow or ice, you'll drive like a hero. A little noisy, but awesome traction. If you live in wintry conditions, I highly recommend this tire. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tires Tires are great but the installation was done incorrectly, these are directional tires and were first put on wrong, I had to come back to have them installed correctly. February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happily driving in snow The day before I got the snow tires, I was sliding all over the road, not able to make it up hills, barely able to make it to work. I never ever put snow tires on any of my cars, never thought there was a need. A co worker recommended I get them & wow, what a world of difference! These were a great price & in stock! Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied with GENERAL ALTIMAX ARCTIC tires The GENERAL ALTIMAX ARCTIC tires have been great so far in the New England weather. They have responded well to the slippery and snowy conditions we have had here lately January 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good snow tire for the money The tires seem fine, I have owned more expensive snow tires for a rear wheel car that I had and they were absolutely the best, but they were a lot more money. These do the job, ride nice and don't create that much more road noise. Pep boys had them on clearance also part of their buy 3 get 4th free which meant I was able to buy 4 get them installed and still pay less then the advertised price for each. Service was also good, the where ready on time. January 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Installed on an 2002 Dodge Neon Tires were installed just in time to beat the snow, tires were awesome have not gotten stuck yet. Only slip I have gotten so far have been on ice and it was expected. Tread depth is very deep and the tires are still quiet and smooth on the road at all speeds. January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet tire For a snow tire this is very quiet. Ride quality is very good, handling is also very good. Overall this is a great tire I would recommend to all. January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These tires are fantastic. I am extremely pleased with my purchase of winter tire through Pep Boys. Excellent quality, great price and excellent customer service. Thank you. December 22, 2014
