Describes the sidewall appearance. Examples: BSW= Black Side Wall, WSW = White Side Wall OWL = Outlined White Letters.
The load index (LI) is a 2 or 3 digit number that corrolates to the maximum amount of weight the tire can carry. For example, a tire with a load index of 87 indicates that the tire can carry a maximim load of 1,201 lbs. In the case of our example the 87 identifies the tires ability to carry a maximum of 1,201 lbs. So 4 tires will carry a maximum of 4,804 lbs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimim Load Index. It is not recommended to install tires with a lower Load Index. By doing so, this could cause your tires to be overloaded thus potentially causing a blowout.
Speed Ratings (SR) are based on laboratory tests and indicates the maximum speed the tire can achieve. These tests are based on limited time trials. Higher speed rating tires typically will yield better handling capabilities, but may often result in lower mileage. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimum Speed Rating. It is not recommended to install a tire with a lower speed rating as it could affect the handling of your vehicle. It is important to note that speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. Additionally, most tire manufacturers maintain that a tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the tire manufacturer's original speed rating, even after being repaired because the tire manufacturer can't control the quality of the repair.
|Load Range/Ply Rating||Not Available||
Ply Rating is related to the max load capacity. This value can be defined with a letter or number. The higher the number/letter, the higher the load capacity.
To help consumers evaluate their tires, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) created the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG). The UTQG rates tires are rated on their tread-wear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The grade for each of these can be found on the sidewall of your tire (except for winter tires and certain light truck tires). Click here for more information.
|Max Single Load(lbs)||2337||The maximum load this tire will support. Remember to multiply this number by the number of tires installed on your vehicle to get the maximum carrying capacity. This number is directly related to the Load Index.|
|Max Single Air Pressure(PSI)||44||The maximum air pressure this tire will support. This does not represent the amount of air pressure your tires should have at all times. Consult with your owner's manual to determine the best air pressure you should use for your vehicle.|
|Tread Depth||12.0||The amount of tread on the tire. Once the tire is worn to 2/32nds, it is considered fully used and should be replaced at that time. Most tires will have tire indicators in the grooves of the tire to help you determine when the tires are worn down to 2/32nds.|
Nondirectional - most common, same tread pattern on inside & outside of the tire. Can be rotated to all four corners of vehicle. Asymmetrical - tread pattern is different on the inside to the outside of the tire, and must be mounted properly. Can be rotated to all four corners of the vehicle. Directional tires - roll in only one direction, must be mounted properly. Once mounted they must remain on the same side of the vehicle, and only be rotated front to rear.
|Rim Width Range||6.5-8.0||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||7.0||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||9.8||The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.|
|Tread Width||7.5||The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.|
|Overall Diameter||30.5||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|

3rd Pair - Could not be happier!
They are incredible in the snow - lateral grip is predictable as is braking. They seem to be wearing nicely. At this price, the more well known snow tires are just not worth it. Only disappointment was the manufacture date. Other than that - good experience!
The best snow tires I've ever used
Reasonable price, excellent traction and long lasting tires
...fast, easy and as ordered - thank you!!
Recommended - fast, easy and as ordered - thank you!!
Happy Honda Odyssey owner
Very quiet for aggressive tire tread. Driven 5000 miles on this set with no oblivious wear.
better traction than I expected
Also quieter than expected when studded
Very Nice Tires
I purchased the Altimax Arctic tires to put on a 2 wheel drive pickup , I don't drive this truck when the weather is bad but I been caught twice on the interstate in sleet and freezing rain storms. I did not have any problems slipping or sliding on the highway , now understand I was driving at a safe speed about 50mph. I am planing on running these tires year round and if I get 30,000 miles before I need to replace them I will be very happy.
Best tires I’ve ever had!
I drive in the snow for a living and these are the best tires I’ve ever used. I’ve had them on five vehicles now and the perform beautifuly last a long time and are great on ice and snow. The only set that I’ve had that wore out were on Ram 2500 diesel but that truck went through tires fast because of the weight. On my passenger cars Ic gotten over 50k miles. Now I just leave these on year round.
Very good tires
We've had some nasty winter weather and they hold the road well.
These tires are great
Great tires gor great price.
The best tire I have ever experienced.
Best tire for the best price. Reliable, dependable and safe.
