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 2 out of 5 by loyal Michelin tire guy until now 30k miles and almost down to tread bars. Very disappointed. Michelin used to be top of the line. October 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by QUIET! These tires are so quiet I can now hear my wife talking ;-) September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tires ever!!! I mean it. Never ever switching Trust me if your looking for awesome tires. The ltx ms ms2 just doesn't compare to any other tire out there for price and quality. I am not a slow and steady type driver. I know how to beat tires up. These tires just hug every turn. Great in the rain, snow, high winds, off road. buying these forever September 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by My not reach 70k but almost double my OEM tires so far. Bought Michelins to replace OEM brand (2 sets) that only lasted about 30k each on our 2002 Ford Ranger Tremor. I spent the extra money because of the advertised 70k guarantee. I keep the air pressure set and rotate every 6k as requested and do not drive aggressive. It is almost time to replace the Michelins. 5/32's left at 51k miles. The prior 2 sets were so noisy I thought the front wheel bearings were shot. I thought I was driving a different truck after installing the Michelins as the noise was gone. My wife really noticed the difference as this is her daily transportation. I will be buying another set of Michelins in the coming weeks. September 7, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor lifespan Only 37,000 miles on tires and almost worn out. Winter traction is horrible. I have had Michelin tires most of my driving life and up until now was always satisfied, not any more. August 18, 2016

Thanks to there great tire tread come to think of it they perform well for winter also if in snow or ice. Great traction! A+TIRE July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quietest, smoothest ride available! My third set of LTX M/S light truck tires in the last 12 years, and I drive many cars, but it feels like coming home again when I get into my own vehicle sporting these tires! Summer quiet, winter traction! July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Tires! I have these tires for a few days and what a difference from my old tires, very quite drive, easy ride, great grip, excellent response to breaking and a much better steering experience. Love these tires!! July 4, 2016
