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: 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 4.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPPERB OPTION Bought as replacement to OEM tires. They handle fabulously in both wet and dry conditions. Smooth and VERY quiet ride was the biggest immediate difference noted. The price and 60K warranty are added bonus' to a great tire. Would recommend these again. Put on 2012 Acura TL #Std# August 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good, solid, quiet tires! These tires seem to be living up to the other reviews I've read here. I haven't had them in inclement weather yet, but they completely eliminated a high speed front end shimmy I was enduring (though that was probably due to my pushing an old set of Falkens just a bit too far ;-). Road noise is minimal now as well, and price was excellent. Happy to have these! October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product was affordable, reliable and easy to order. After shopping around looking for tires. I thought the price was excellent for these. They offered the same rating as the others that were much more expensive. The ordering process was easy too. For a woman looking for tires, I am very satisfied with my choice. October 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Better Than Expected..... I was not expecting much from these tires as I was unfamiliar with the brand and they were not very expensive. They have so far (750 miles) performed very well. They are quiet and grip well. i do wish the treads were a bit deeper. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by they had the tires we needed at a great price From the time we walked in they were great. They treated us like family and took very good care of us. They made us feel welcome September 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice riding tires These tires deliver a smooth ride and actually increased our gas mileage. We had a rattle in the passenger door, but once we got these tires the rattle went away. May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Experience Had an awesome experience! No complaints. No issues with my tires so far. Customer service was great. January 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price and Quality For an unpopular sized tire with quality, the price was fantastic...about $150.00 less than anyone else for a set of four. The tires drive great in all conditions. December 29, 2014
