SERVICE DESCRIPTIONSafety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and SpeedRating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range andSpeed 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.
UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality GradeUTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values:treadwear, traction and temperature.
Tread wear 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'sability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C -Between 85 to 100 mph
