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: 600
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 555 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Believe it or Not. 200K on my Cartier Symmetries. A Flat on the Car with my TLC produced an unused spare donut in the trunk. My tires were manufactured, September, 2000. I replaced my '95 Cartier with my 2000 Cartier L after a flatbed totaled it. I loved my tires with the pinstripes. Michelin found a new set - w/o the pinstripes. I don't think any of us will see 400K. So What? The other three still have usable tread. This tire is almost impossible to find. Michelin gave me a good deal to be sure matched tires would provide the safest ride. Thanks. MAX May 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product is reliable. After purchasing the tires, the air kept leaking out. I had to put air in tires often. When I had dealership to inspect tires they said they could not find any problems with the tires. March 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lasted longer than predicted There were the original tires on my 99 subaru outback. They made it to 98k miles. At that time I switched to michelin hydroedges which were rated for 90k miles. They only made it to 50k. I'd switch back if they're still available when I go back for tires this time. March 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good tires great service I have been using Michelin for a very long time. I would like for the tire to be a little deeper in tread design. However I run Michelin on 4 vehicles and am very satisfied with this tire. Excellent in wet conditions. Just work on the price. February 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good reliable tires Used on full size family tire. Quiet smooth ride with good all weather traction. Expected mileage good but could be better. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The very best tire The best tire for the money. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This was the Tire my car came with new. I like the tires they came on the car new and I have had no problems. They lasted about 50000 miles before I replaced them. They are quiet and ride good. December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by smooth ride these tires make the car ride smooth and comfortable. I noticed a change soon as the tires were put on the car. I just need to stop running into curbs! December 27, 2013
