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: 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 & 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 & 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 5 out of 5 by 2007 C6 Base Coupe Tires '07 Vette-These tires are amazing in the winter/summer rain or scorching sun in Phoenix. The traction & handling was 2nd to none. Good for defensive driving. The wear is exceptional.10K+ miles still look brand new. I'm hooked and you would be too. Can't go wrong. No problems. I give them an A++ February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Total transformation After two sets of oe tires on 2007 c6 corvette replaced with pilot a/s. Completely transformed car. Less road noise and increased grip on cool pavement. Got tired of the car, now love it all over again. September 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by greatest performer Audi S4 tire all weather yet! Three set's since 2005. Any troubles They replace no problem by full set. Now however I am told will not do so as manufacturing 235/40-18 has ceased, yet strangely enough for the S5 they produce 245/40-18 currently. Must one do a trade for a S5 Audi, to run the next size up still available? Any troubles, to then be told a year or so latter, NLA in the A/S Plus my size as phased out??? Really now!!!! What a Porsche next to get the tires so loved? August 9, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overrated Tire Purchased set of 4 Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires in fall 2010 for 2006 Mercedes SLK 280. Drove car in summer only. Originally told this was a 40,000 mile tire. 15,000 miles later must replace rear tires. Now told tire no longer in production. Is an adjustment from Michelin available? Is it ok to install different tire (Pilot Sport A/S 3) on rears without replacing front tires (A/S Plus)? April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2007 Corvette - AS ZP When I purchased my Corvette in January 2013 the OEM wheels had a semi worn set of these tires mounted. The car felt good and I did like the tires, especially being a Bibendum fan. When I replaced the wheels I had these tires installed. New these tires are incredible! I was able to get just over 30K on the rears. I don't race my car it is just a driver I use for work. By 2014 the rears were done. The fronts were not even half way used up. January 2014 I purchased my current set of AS ZP. I just love these tires. When you can see the wear bars on these tires the car starts to feel twitchy when hitting wet tar snakes. Puddles create a pucker factor. I love these tires. As long as they are available and I can get 30K out of them, they will be on my car. March 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostly excellent...mostly Installed on BMW 750, 2007 Always quite. Dry traction and handling is excellent. Limited use in the snow, but I am able to get around in limited snow and level terrain. It is possbile to have trouble assending a slight incline that is covered with snow less than 1" deep and no momentum. Also, had trouble in a mud field with a slight incline. Would buy them again for the mid-Atlantic states with limited snow fall. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would purchase again Great tire for my SUV. Holds well in heavy rain. Have not been on ice or snow. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safe Control at all times I bought these tires for safer traveling in wet conditions; I could not have made a better choice. Our little Mazda 3 really moves through the snow and rain and has that great zippy feeling again. December 28, 2013
