Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang and Return for you Bucks Huge Fan of the Neo Gen. Amazing dry and wet traction. Very predictable and sure handling at both high and low speeds. Grips the corners like it has claws. Very quiet tires also with almost no road noise. Will be replacing my old ones with a new set of 4 soon on my 97 240sx. Love the rim guard factor that it brings also. Protecting my aftermarket rims when going through the corners hard. Great design, Great look, and very cool but functional thread design. Loved and appreciated these tires from Day 1. Price point is great! Hope it will never change/go up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neo Gen 235/40 18 My lowered XTI loves these tire rain or shine. I find that I have grip under breaking and through the mountain passes in the heaviest of rain fall. I have ran Nitto tires in the past and loved them. Now that I have a lowered vehicle I was looking for a more even wearing tire. The last set wore out the inside way too fast and I didn't like the fact they only lasted 8,000 miles. Looking at the Nitto Neo Gen tires after 5,000 miles, I still have a even wear from inside to outside. I'm very happy and looking forward to see how they look after 10,000 - 15,000 miles. I will be buying the Neo Gens for the life of my Subaru Forester XT. A great tire for a AWD beast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tires I've ever had on this car! I've been a Goodyear guy for many years. When looking at other options, I found these. The tread pattern quickly got my attention. After looking into the specs and reviews, I decided to order a set. Driving home from the install it was raining. I pushed the car pretty hard and I am thoroughly impressed. Until someone can recommend something better, I'll be buying these or the future equivalent for quite some time. \m/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tires I had pirelli run flats on my older bmw and I could feel EVERY bump in the road. But these Nitto tires make me enjoy driving my car. Smooth drive and great in rain. Glad I came out of those run flats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I've had these tires for 7 years now. I bought them not knowing what to expect but have been extremely surprised. Granted they are installed on my summer car, but still wearing fairly evenly (currently running a mild stretch and have air suspension so running some negative camber alot of the time). I will be buying another set of these once I run them out, probably next summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed Dry performance is amazing. I put 4 but its more like 4.5. A mazda tech friend installed them on my 15x7 +35 rota plus's and we then took me for a test drive. Lateral g grip is excellent. Wet performance is that more like a summer tire in my experience. Driving home from work with a mist one night I was going easy and hydroplaned much easier. I'm experienced and trained on how to react so i was fine. And in another experience my friends and I went for a spirited drive one night a few hrs after a rain storm. They had all season basics and I had these. As tail gun charlie I break traction and drift a corner at 45mph. They were great other than there tendency to slip under load on wet spots or under any acceleration change. I would say they perform more like a lower end summer tire than an all season. And not too load. I have a lot of low end torque so I squeal tire some but other than that no noise. Good price for buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires my car being awd loves to corner and I can feel the tire pulling my car in place when I push it too hard and my chasis try to move. When I first bought these tires I dropped them to the ground and they came up with rocks it was dope lol. And just everytime i launch i can feel every wheel just pulling with almost no slip at all. now it will hop a little but not bad. I push my car pretty hard and the wear on the tire is pretty minimum running on 10k miles. Next set picking up some more. Best tires

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.

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.
