This describes the sidewall appearance. Examples include Black Sidewall, White Sidewall, and 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.
|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)||2039||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)||50||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||10.0||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||6.5-8.5||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||7.5||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||9.6||The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.|
|Tread Width||Not Available||The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.|
|Overall Diameter||29.2||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||30422970||Manufacturer part number (sku)|
This is the second set of these tires that I've bought for my daughter's car. So that in itself tells you something. She likes them and that's what counts. She told me the car handles nice and she feels safe in all weather.
Awesome tires .......great value!!
I got great tires to complete my set for the price that I couldn't find anywhere else. I had them within two days so very happy with both the tires and the service I received. Would order from here again.
The ride is very quiet and soft.
Great tires but they make a humming sound other then that satisfy
Excellent griping tires!!! Had to drive in rain and omg!!!!! No slip or hydroplaneing!!!! Will buy 4 more when i need new tires. Thanks for a great product for so cheap!!!
Can't beat the price! I am very pleased wit my purchase!
Where have I been? Never thought to buy tires online until I needed a set. Then a friend of mine checked my car for the size and recommended these tires. There they were three days later sitting on my front porch. Even with installation, they were still cheaper than going to the local service center. The tires look good and handle well in rainy weather. All around satisfying experience. Thank you.
Happy in PA.
Great tires for a very good price with excellent customer service,I have recommended Tires-easy.com to friends and family.
Best deal. Super fast. Super satisfied!
Great tires at a great price
very happy with my purchase, fast delivery and very good customer service. A+
I originally ordered 215/55R17 for my car loved them. My wife needed tires for her car so I ordered the Ohtsu Tire in 215/60R16. These are tires for the price, handle well is all weather, there is a little road noise but overall great tires.
Tires arrived the same week. Ohtsu are a good deal for the money. I'm phasing out my overpriced Michelins.
Not sure how long the first set lasted. Used to run them on my old 280z. I do not put on a lot of miles each year so they are a good value to put on an older car.
Great tire for a good price
I will be purchasing more in the near future
This is my second set of tires from this company. The tires are great. Quiet and smooth ride. I'll be purchasing all of my tires from here.
These tires were cheaper, even with installation, than anything I could have gotten locally. They appear to be good quality and I have had no issues at all.
for an everyday beater these are great so far. no clue yet as to whether they work in the snow but we will see soon enough here on the east coast. quiet and smooth with little balance weights needed on initial install.
I bought this brand for my Acura TL Type-S originally, because my Yokohama Advan's started to split at the sidewalk, all of them. These tires were rated as good if not better than the Yokohama's. I liked them so much that I bought another set for my wife's Kia Soul.
Great set of tires. Yes, they were a little loud at highway speeds initially, but have quoted down. Very happy with this choice.
My auto shop mounted them and was shocked when I told them what I paid for them! They said they have mounted brand name tires that cost twice as much and do not seam to be any better quality than these. I have had them on for a couple of months and they ride and handle Great! Go Ohtsu or go home!
I have used them for over 1000 miles (700 hwy+400 city). The price of the tire is very good. The write-up about the tire meets any criteria you may have about tire special needs - like: ride; cornering; life tbd,; On the hwy at 70 mph they were a little noisier than I would like. But, to that, my car is also new to me ......... So we'll leave the final judgement about noise until latter. However, for the money I guess I can't complain because it was great!
dj of newark, de
