Rated 5 out of 5 by from Michelin Tires - Peace of Mind Having Michelin tires on my truck allow me navigate the changing seasons in New England without any worries about whether my tires will fail me on wet, icy or damaged road surfaces. I especially like the fact that I rarely have to use my 4-wheel drive feature because the tires grip the road so well - this in turn improves my gas mileage and saves me money! I would like to see a Michelin tire developed more specifically for off-road surfaces that fit ATV, motor-cross as well as multi-purpose vehicles. With Michelin tires on my truck, I can relax knowing that in addition to great performance I'm also providing my family with the safest ride possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy of every cent I paid! Upon installation the ride of my Honda Crosstour changed,it was smoother and quieter. After around my third refill on the gas tank I actually noticed I was filling up less often. I was getting an extra 20 miles out of each refill. That adds up with gas prices they way they are. I have put 10,000 miles on the car since I purchased the tires and there is no noticeable wear on them. I don't remember how much I paid but I was definitely shopping price when I bought. Am I happy with these tires? By far they are the best replacements I have purchased to date for any of my vehicles. They will be going on the next car when it is time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with Michelin tires! Have purchased Michelin tires for over 25 years and they are still the best available. Salesmen try to get my vehicle into another brand but when we are traveling over the roads, we feel much safer with the Michelin tires on our vehicle. All my vehicles love to have the tender care and performance of the Michelin tires on their rims. The Michelin Man is correct in advertising the safety of his tires on TV. Purchased a new vehicle in 2011 and was disappointed that another brand was on the car. Cost a little more but you get what you pay for----a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a 2001 Honda ... I have a 2001 Honda Insight with 210000+ miles. For years I was limited to only one tier available for the car. When I contacted my "tire expert" and told him I was ready for another set of tires he informed me that Michelin was now producing a set of tires for my car. I jumped at the chance to put Michelin tires on the only vehicle I own that didn't have Michelin tires, and love them. The car now rides better, handles better, and is now getting over 52 miles to a gallon for the first time. I use to get around 42000 miles out of tires that were available and I can only wait to see how many miles these tires get. If they last as long as all the other Michelin tires, I can double that and save even more money, thanks Michelin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This tire at first glance looked like it will grip the road good, It dose, I drove though heavy rain for 2 hours, where could only see one car in front of me on free way, this tire did not hidro plane or loose traction, on black top the ride is smooth, and after 2500 miles I do not see any ware on tread. Only thing I do not like about the tire is that auto dealer did not supply a spare tire, so if it were not Michelin I would be purchasing a spare tire, I know when I get 60000 miles will be replacing them just for not wanting to be stranded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motor Home Tire Excellence I purchased six Michelin tires for my motor home prior to my trip from Florida to Alaska this year. I experienced farenheight temperatures ranging from 85 degrees to the low 20's as well as gravel, rocky, pothole heavy and frostheave roadways for at least several thousand miles overall. Many others on similar routes have experienced serious tire failures. I can honestly report that my Michelin's have held up wonderfully and I am extremely pleased I purchased them, even though at the time I did not need to replace my tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the right choice I Bought my Honda City Car in the year-2011 fitted with energy saver tyre no 175/65 R15 by MICHELIN. It is an amazing journey so far as I have covered more than one lakh five thousand K.M. (105000 K.M)with the same tyres.I never thought that tyres can run so longer but every time when I ask for replacement, the service advisor during routine service check at Honda workshop advices that tyres are still good.Thank you very much Michelin and will definitely go for the same again whenever replacement is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tires EVER I am so glad the manager at the tire store new what he was talking about when he advised me to get Michelin tires. They are tuff and put up with everything the roadway throws at them.They are the best tires I have ever owned ,the ride is smooth and they handle great. They still look new after 35,000 miles and much driving in all kinds of weather.Of course my next pair of tires will be Michelins. If people new how well they are made there next set of tires would be Michelins.

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges. Prices may vary from one store to another or from one date to another. Tires listed may not be in stock at the identified store.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
