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 & 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 1 out of 5 by Worst purchase ever I initially thought I got a good deal I bought these tires for my daily drive 07 Hyundai Accent. I commute approx. 170 mi's a day round trip. I purchased the tires 31JULY13. The first tire blew out in November 2013, and the second went today 20FEB13. There is nothing good I can say about this tire brand. February 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unable to test ride the Nika Avatar Nika Avatar rides smooth enroute to destination but due to weather conditions and snow was unable to actual features of product. Maybe during Spring, this product is on a Mercedes Benz CLK 320 convertible. February 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Tires I got the cheapest tires I could find because I will not be using them for very long. They seem like a good deal for the money I paid. No complaints. January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very surprised I brought these tires based on the price alone and knew nothing about the brand of tire and didn't expected anything but an average tire and since I'm going sell my car in a few months I didn't really care, but During the last snow storm I was very impressed by the handling on the snow and ice. I was also equally impressed on the way my car handles on dry pavements.... January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tires ! 1993 Accord These tires replaced a worn out set of yokahamas and have about 500 miles so far and they are excellent. Better ratings than the yoka's too (treadwear, traction and temp.) December 31, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by rigid tire and rough ride Only two good things about this Nika Avatar tire: 1.Driving on a highway speed in a rainy day. 2. The tread design looks like an expensive tire and they look wider than other brands I installed on my car. the bad: 1. The tires are rigid and you can feel every bump on the road. 2. they are no available spec regarding the total weight of the tire and/or the exact diameter, I believe they are a heavy cheap rubber as they cause my car to get poor milage comparing to the ols set and the one I got after those ones. 3. after the first 3k miles I started to get loud noise. Don't buy them. they are made in THAILAND and it takes a year and a half in transportation and storing from the date of production to the day you install them. If you want to go cheap just get the Pep Boys brand. December 15, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by service is terrible!!! 2 of the 4 new tires i bought the valve stems were leaking and the tires almost went flat before i even made it home. tires were a great buy the service is why i will never go to pep boys again, great price or not!!! November 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by They really don't seem like new tirers They seem like used items. I'm not sure if I really like them This does not mean I won't still shop at Pet boys but next time I will be more careful You get what you pay for September 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great results with this product. This tire has a great ride to it. You can't believe the performance for the price. I am very pleased with the purchase. With all the rain that I've been driving in for the past month, the traction is incredible. It brought a lot of peace of mind when driving in any condition. July 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awsome product at an incredible price the price i found this product it was just unbelivable July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far excellent value for the money Smooth quiet ride, nice thick tread. It remains to be seen if they live up to their 500 tread wear index. Time will tell. August 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite riding tire. I bought these tires for a 2010 Ford Fous. I only drive my car about 20 miles a day to go back and forth to work. Nominal speed to and from work is 50mph and lower. When I took a small trip out of town, I noticed that the tires seemed to be off balance (at 60mph +) a bit due to the minor shaking of the stearing wheel and seats (mainly seats). Took the car back to Pepboys without a problem to have them check out the tires. Got the car back and the tired run pretty smooth now. I would recommend these tires for just normal driving. dwas impressed driving in the rain with these tires. Went through some standing water and the tires didnt even hydroplane at above 50mph. The tires look very nice too. August 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good product Tires were what I was looking for. Speedy and cordial service. August 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor tires when I got these tires I had 35k on my car and had no problems with car after getting these tires I now have a wobble at 35 m/p/h I even took them back to have the bal. checked after that same wobble still there these tires are very poor August 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet and great handling very satiefied July 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tires are rollin' just fine! I wanted a tire with an unsual tread desing to help hold my little buggy in tight turns and to reduce the road noise I was hearing. The Nika Avatar tires fit the bill just right. Along with the wheel alignment I got at Pep Boys, I'mm rollin' along much better. July 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like them fine We like the way they handle and feel so far July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tire for the price! I install this tires in my tiburon, and the performance is excellent.Recomend 100%! July 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by One tore when mounting I bought these on clearance, a set of 4, really cheap tire, but 1 tore while being mounted. 1st time seeing that happen to a tire. Otherwise tires that didn't tear seem to be ok. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So helpful We needed new tires and had frame damage from being hit. The employees worked with us and let us know other options we had that we weren't even aware that were cheaper and effective. I did not feel like they were trying to upsell or con me. I left feeling like I could take my car there as a woman and not get duped. July 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Running great So far the tire has been running great. Regarding price, it was the lowest priced tire at Pep Boys at the time, and it does the trick. June 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by These tires are good. I don't know anything about tires, but these seem to function as described. June 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great product, quick delivery. So convenient! April 14, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by tire not holding air One of the new tires I bought will not hold air. I have had to fill it up 3 times since I got it,there are no punctures in it either April 7, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor The traction is out of control and bad handling on freeway. I only used it for 1 month I see these problem. You pay what you get I guess for cheap tire but tire should only $50 for these kind of tire. March 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product has nothing to offer. Within two weeks I was having a whole new set of different tires put on my car. Theses tires are horrible and I wouldn't recommend them to anybody. March 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice but a bit noisy I love the look of these tires... can't say anything about tread life yet since I've had them on the Honda Civic only a week or so. One thing I did notice is a bit more noise compared to the OEM Bridgestones the car came with. Overall quite happy for the price though. March 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tires are fine Tires I bought for my wife's car were good for the price. Worked out well for what we needed. March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great!! So far the tires are doing well!! February 20, 2013
