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)||3195||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)||65||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||18.0||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||7.5-9.0||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||8.5||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||11.5||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||32.76||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|

Better than expected
I have had these tires for a couple months now and they have great traction in snow and rain. The ride is nice. They have the typical mud terrain sound when driving which I don’t mind. You won’t find a better mud tire in this size!
These tires are great
Great tires for a great deal, put them on a Jeep Wrangler and love them, didn’t even have them balanced and they run so smooth.
These tires arefantasti
Great to resolve them on my lifted jeep
These tires are great!
My fiance found these tires for me, I was looking for something well priced, with an aggressive look to them. Received the 4th tire just in time before the last snow arrived, they worked perfectly!
Tires are great
Great traction, grip, and go. Rough tires that are great for on and offroad. We are very pleased with both the product and the seller and will be back for future tire needs!
Thank you so much! I appreciate your business!! Will do business again in future!
Love the tires.
Tires are great, smooth ride not too loud. Love they way they look. Get complements all the time
Happy with tires
Great tire lots of road noise but to be expected with this style of tire . Overall happy with performance and looks
Great looking tires on my 201 GMC
Pull good in mud, handles great on the road, and not too loud for the tread blocks.
So far so great!
Still cannot believe these tires are so cheap. They look excellent, mounted and balanced without issue and perform great so far! Have had on nearly every terrain other than snow so far and are doing great. Tread life seems solid so far, only a couple thousand miles so far but very little signs of wear (even with a spoon in the rear). Highly recommend!!
Absolutely awesome tires. I will recommend and will purchase again. Priceed just right
Best value around
Purchased these tires for my 4runner because of the price tag and have been blown away with them. I have about 3000 miles on them now and several off-road trips and they still look great. They have awesome grip in mud as well as on rocks. I have a locker in the rear and that can be really hard on tires when driving on pavement but they still look great. Even after lots of burnouts in the gravel they look and work awesome
Very quite with an aggressive tread. Ran them thru some snow and slush with no problems. They handle great in the rain. Have not had the opportunity to run them in mud. The price was perfect!!
Awsome tire great price , Haven't got stuck with these new tires
Great deal good tires!
I put six cities on my dually, running straight and smooth good tires!
For the price and traction of these tires you can't go wrong. They are a little soft as most mud tires are and will get chewed up on sharp rocky terrain but overall I'm very happy with them.
These tires are great
Good tires I liked them
Amazing tires if you are wanting to go large on a budget
Got these cause they were cheap for 35's. I live in Washington so lots and lots of thick mud and large puddles with lots of silt at the bottom. Goes through all I've thrown at it no problem. Wares well and looking to get around 50-60k out of them. Only thing is the sidewall is a little thin for my liking so be careful going through ruts. Other than that it's a great tire for those on a budget.
Great in mud and deep snow, smooth ride
Great price fast delivery. The first 500 miles my truck was all over the place on the highway, I guess they needed broke in, now they ride great. Our last snow was 16" I pulled my neighbors 4door Silverado up out of my field over a steep embankment, and also his diesel kubota he slid off lane into the woods with a Tacoma.
Great tires, better price
Could not have asked for anything more, zero issues and the work great.
very aggressive tread,yet quiet on rd,love em

First half of hunting season is done, and these tires did great on gravel, rock, and especially the mud.
