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 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: 400
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47

Performance

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.

November 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value and Price Needed two good tires for my drive wheels to get through the winter. These tires fit the bill. Modestly priced, handle the road well with minimal noise. A great value. November 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ride smooth Ride smooth. Haven't put many miles on them yet. Hope they continue to perform well. October 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good solid mid distance tire Researched this tire extensively. Many good reviews for Honda Civics which is what I have. My car has over 150,000 miles and I wanted a mid distance tire at a reasonable price. These fit perfectly into those parameters. Comfortable ride and great traction on a variety of surfaces. October 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tires! These tires are good to go, I am enjoying the use of these, so far. The price was great and the performance is exceptionally. I've have been driving on these tires for 3 month. The ride is smooth and good traction in dry conditions. Wet conditions are satisfactory. Good tires to purchase. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible I felt really comftable with the services. October 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice ride I needed tires for inspection. Not a lot of money, cause I am on disability. These are the cheapest tires Pep Boys sells. After about 2 weeks of driving with them, they seem to be smooth and give a good ride. October 14, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Installation The product may be ok and the price, but my installation service experience in Skokie on Touhy was terrible. Very slow, you need to allocate 4-5 hours for the 2 tire replacement, including waiting in line, then 1.40 min for service. I'd better buy from them and then go to another shop to install. October 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire, and good for the cost. I purchased four for my P.T. Cruiser - reasonably quiet, rides and tracks well, no complaints. October 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by really good tires these are really good tires and at an awesome price. no other tire dealer could come anywhere close to Pep Boys price. Buying online was easy and the folks at the store were very helpful and courteous. Great experience. October 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by NOISE LOUD ROAD NOISE! October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good tires! I have put over 12000 miles on my Starfire RS tires. They are smooth, quiet and wear well. I had the french tires before and they were hard, noisy, had big wear problems and were really expensive. I will definitely buy these V rated tires again and just had my daughter put them on her car. September 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good. Excellent handling These tires look great in my car. Excellent handling and less noisy than the previous tires. Smooth ride. Good value for the price. September 28, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by tires I like the price of the tires I got and they are very nice and am extremely happy with ur service and will use u again and refer u to my friends and family September 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is great We bought 4 new tires for my daughters car before she left for college. These tires are great. Car runs great and feels safe. September 19, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by These tires suck I bought these tires because of low price and some pretty good reviews. But I swear the ride I had on the old tires was even better. I also noticed some tread abnormality on one of the tires. The ride seems hard, bumpy and uneven. So my recommendation is buy a name brand that you've had good experience with. These tires suck. September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by "Good tires." "Good affordable tires." September 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality ! This was my first time purchasing four new tires for my vehicle. I don't have much experience picking or purchasing tires because I'm used to my dad doing everything LOL but it was very easy to purchase and install at a tire shop. Would highly recommend. September 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price; Decent Tires I have to preface this review with this info: the tires I purchased have been on my car for only two weeks or so. I may revisit this review when more time has elapsed so that I can report on how the tires have held up over time. So far, I.m very pleased with these tires. You can't beat the price, and my mechanic said that the tires are good. He said he has a lot of clients who purchase them. He said that they hold up nicely. September 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tire for the money. The tire seems to give the car a smooth ride and so far there are no issues. September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for a low price I have put approx 1200 miles since I bought them and have no complaints. August 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Starfire RS-C 2.0 They are noisier that previous tires that I had. They are working well. Good for the price paid. Service charges for two tires was a little somewhat high, too many charges, for this for that, etc... August 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would think you have Michelins on! I was looking for an inexpensive tire that was solid with reviews and found the starfire. I can't believe the ride. My car is quieter, smoother and handles like it was new. My car is about 13 years old and I use it only to commute to and from work which is about 40 miles per day. If you want a solid performing tire that is easy on the wallet yet provides a great grip and quiet ride, put your money on these tires. With the money you save, you should take the wife to a great restaurant. August 27, 2016
