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 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the tread design Really not sure yet, haven't driven enough to tell alot March 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for a General Tire For "General" use, these tires would probably do OK...., but they are not a UHP tire........They were really slow on the takeoff and they rode really "bouncy" over bumps........The ride was smooth but they felt sluggish on my Audi TT. I also lost a Fair amount of gas mileage. March 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nexen 5000 These tires are priced right and seem to be a good value. I went from General Altamax tires that exhibited poor wear. These Nexen tires ride well and are quiet on my 2001 Honda Accord EX. March 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the price. I now have 900 miles on these tires mostly freeway drivind and they still look like they were just installed. The wear tips ( casting hair) is mostly intact despite some agressive driving. Rain is no problem. The tread pattern slices through puddles. My last tires were Hankook Ventus V2. They lasted 60K + miles. These Nexens have a little more road noise and a firmer ride but overall about the same ride quality. February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tires at a great price and most importantly, great customer service! These tires are an exceptional value. Excellent traction in snow and wet conditions. Great handling. High mileage tread wear rating. You can't beat this deal. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tires great Tires are great. Similar to the Michelin MXV that is no longer available in 14" rim sizes. However the balancing of the tires was horrible. I did not take it back since if they can't get it right the first time, I'm going elsewhere and did. Balance is now perfect. It went from vibration that would make me sick in 10 miles to a smooth as silk ride after balanced properly. January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, good grip, handles well in turns. I am very satisfied with the Nexen N5000, they grip the road on wet surfaces excellently, tire noise at highway speeds is almost non-existent. Great tire for general commuting and everyday driving, and the price is RIGHT! December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Choice I had no idea about if I had chose the right tires. When I got to Pep Boys, one of the installers told me if I hadn't showed up. He wanted the tires. He stated these were some great tires. Pep Boys give GREAT customer service. I will refer everyone I know who owns a car to them. Thanks for an awesome experience of getting my tires and my tire sensors done. September 20, 2013
