Load Range

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

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

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

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

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: 220
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
Temperature
Grades:
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 360 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely the best tire money can buy After trying numerous other brands over the years for everything from a Light truck tire to a Corvette & Lexus IS, nothing performs or lasts like a Michelin and is what keeps me coming back when I have the money. Unfortunately, they are not inexpensive tires. :) May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tire !!! These tires are magnificent. The grip, handling and braking is simply fantastic. Not to mention, i'm above 32k miles and just now buying 2 front PS2's. The rear PS2's have a considerable amount of tread left. I think me and the ZR1 will burn those babies off for a little fun and to expedite the purchase of 2 more rears. I do want to try to keep the tread wear as even as i can. I'm sure Michelin will appreciate that.... November 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 05 GTO Incredible Upgrade Put these on my 05 GTO at 20K. What a difference. Felt like I wasted the first two years of owning this car. They're smooth, quiet and SUPER STICKY. I've had them on for 3 years and 20,000 miles. I've never had a Z rated tire wear this well or last this long. I've had over thirty personal and business vehicles since 1976 and every one of them eventually gets Michelins. They cost more.... cause they're worth it. As Always... Thank You Michelin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pilot PS 2 I upgraded to a 19" RS5 wheel and decided to go back to the rubber that came with the car when I bought it, as a dedicated summer tire. The PS2's are the best performace tires I have had the pleasure of rolling on. We do a ton of road trips with Audi Club WC and I am thoroughly impressed how reliable the PS2's are even under the toughest of conditions. Easy buying decision that was based on the overwhelming survey results of other Audi Club members. October 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect compromise for street AND track I run the Michelin PS2 255/35/18 and 275/35/18 on my 2008 BMW 335i. It is the perfect tire for both street and track use. I can run it every day with great treadwear, as my daily driver, and when I take it to the track, it performs extremely well. I love the Jekyll and Hyde personality of the tire. September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Tieres Recently installed N-Spec Pilot Sport PS2 tires on my 2002 Porsche 911. Tires not only improved ride comfort and vehicle dynamics, but also were very responsive and grippy during a recent track-day session, leading to improved lap times. I really recommend these tires for this application. September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome tires for your Z06 I put these tires on my Corvette Z06 and the difference was immediate. The handling and ride were immediately smoother and the grip was amazing. I would definitely buy these again for my car! September 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great replacement for the OEM tire... ... for my 2011 Genesis 4.6 Sedan. The tries improved the ride, the handling and are much more quite August 18, 2013
