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)||2679||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)||51||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||Not Available||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.|
|Tread Design||Not Available||
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||Not Available||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||Not Available||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||10.7||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||31.7||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||24689210||Manufacturer part number (sku)|
To early to say anything good or bad for the price well worth it
Great tires, decent looks and great UTQG rating. Best of all , GREAT PRICE!!! Can't ask for more.
Really like these tires. Put them on a 1997 BMW 528i that I refurbished for my grandson. Drove it as a daily for awhile and then drove the car 900 miles to deliver the car to him. In wet and dry conditions these tires handle well. They are quiet on the highway and inspire confidence at speed. At less than $300 for a set of four tires, I have to say they are a great buy.
These are replacement tires for my Scion XD. Quiet smooth ride compared to the OEM Bridgestones. Would definitely buy again. Fast shipping from TiresEasy.
I was going to purchase tires locally that were a little over double the amount I paid. I ended up purchasing 4 tires because it was so cheap. I have had no problems with the tires and have been out of town several times going over 4 miles a total of about 3 times since I've had them. I am very pleased.
Extremely affordable tires, and unrealistically fast shipping. I was worried about the cheaper tires having more road noise or being of lesser quality but, certainly have been impressed thus far! Great buy!

Great riding tires. Quiet.
Have not found a better cutomer service or tirea at such a quality price
Comfortable ride, quiet and good fuel economy. I've had them for 31,000 miles on mostly highway driving and they still look great.
I'm glad I found this website and bought these tires they are great tires and the price was by far amazing. Fast shipping and quality products for low prices.
These are installed on a 2012 Volvo XC60T6. Very little road noise, cornering is excellent, traction in rain is very good. By the way, I do NOT drive slowly. The reviews on this tire were good, so I went for them. Glad I did. No reason to pay more. Have about 6K on tires, just rotated, still happy.

Very happy, will by more
Great tires at a good price
Great tires for a great price.
Very good traction in most situations, the best wet traction I have experienced in a tire to date!
Our 2008 Escape runs much smoother with these tires and they are wearing really well so far.
Changed out my original Michelin tires to these and I am more than pleased: little difference in road noise and handling so far.
Solid tires so far. I’ve had them for a few months now. I’ve been in some serious rain with them and they performed very well.
Real good TIRES quite and good ride I'd give it a 5 star
