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: 500
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 & 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 & Excellent 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 4.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tires and service-great made an online appt. for 2 new tires. Arrived a few minutes before time. Attendants were pleasant and took my car in right on time. I was called an hour later, new tires! It was easy to schedule and didn't disrupt my work day much. My car even handles better now. July 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in the summer and most days, not so great in snow High wear rating, good traction in the dry and in the wet, but snow and slush can get scary at times. January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features and an Affordable Price Price point and performance: the ratings regarding traction, wear and temp, I do not think it can be beat for the money. The tire handles very well while braking and cornering in dry or wet weather. I have these on a Buick and it is night and day difference between these and the stock Goodyears. I run these about 8 PSI lower then maximum pressure for my needs and ride comfort. Great tire overall. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoothe Ride Tires have a very smoothe quiet ride. Pleased for now. Don't know as yet about mileage October 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth ride. My wife has Honda Civic Hybrid that had Michelins on it. The noise was unbearable. Even smooth roads sounded like washboard. About 300 miles ago I switched to the Hankook Ventus V2 / H437's. It not only is a good looking tire it was so smooth and quiet that wish I had switch them sooner. We went to visit my son in the mountains and it handled like a dream. I'm sold. I was dissuaded by a salesman at a different store from buying them there. There was even a mix-up on the quote at Pep Boys but they came through and honored their quote. I'll definitely be a return customer. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires for my PT Cruiser. I needed to make a road trip from the ATX to FT Bragg, NC to attend PME, but was in need of back tires on my PT Cruiser. The car came with two Hankook Ventus V2 Concept H437 tires up front which appeared to be in great condition. I did some research and was pleased with the conclusions so I figured I'd get another two to replace the worn, mismatched set in the rear. I found the tires online at, set up an early morning appointment for the next day and had the tires mounted. My trip to NC started off in hot, scorching Texas weather and concluded in a summer-storm deluge in NC. The tires were great throughout the trip. They ride comfortably, quiet and with enough grip and tenacity to instill confidence in dry or wet weather conditions. The tires still look new, have held the requisite air pressure (I plus-up cold tires; old advanced technical driving instructor trick for increased handling) and ride smooth with no noticeable side-wall roll, sign of abnormal wear or disfigure. I'm very pleased with the tires and the service I received from Pepboys. I usually turn my own wrenches, but I'll be back to see the "boys" for my next tire needs. September 20, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by hankook ventus v2 This is the 3rd time I bought this product, twice on my SUV and this is the 1st time for my Honda Civic, and I will not buy this for anyone of my cars. September 12, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good value for the money I've put over 500 miles on these tires (2011 Mazda 3 iTouring) and here's my honest review: The pros are that they are very quiet, and the ride is extremely smooth. The price was good, and the look of the tires (I especially like the rim savers) are very nice. I drove them in the rain one time so far, and the traction is excellent. I would hydroplane in the OEM tires, and now that is no longer the case. The cons are that compared to the OEM tires (I had Bridgestone Turanza's), these are obviously a cheaper tire for many reasons. The steering now feels loose. Cornering is not as sharp as before, and there's a vibration in the steering wheel when driving around the 70+ MPH mark. The vibration NEVER happened in the OEM tires. Overall, I'm very happy with the quietness, smooth feel and wet traction, but I'm disappointed with the vibration I'm feeling at high speeds and cornering. I'm going to take them back to Pep Boys to have them re-balanced, because maybe that's the issue. September 6, 2013
