Here in this video they will inform you about all different types of tires and what makes each one unique

Tire Comparison

Passenger tires

Passenger tires are among the most economical tire types offered. Premium tires such as the Arizonian Silver Edition provide longer wear and even lower cost-per-mile operation.
Greater profiles (80, 75, 70, or 65 series) for smoother trip and longer wear
Lower speed ratings (Q, S, and T) with a harder, longer wearing compound
All-season tread designs for year round damp, dry and snow traction
Tread patterns that emphasize high ride comfort and low noise
White or black sidewall finish
Tread use warranties varying from 30,000 to 85,000 miles or more

High Performance tires.

High Efficiency tire design extends high speed handling and stability. Cooper's Zeon ZPT epitomizes outstanding value in an H-rated high performance tire design. High performance tires commonly include the following features and choices:.

Lower profiles (as low as 40 series) and bigger diameter wheel sizes (approximately 17 inches) which stiffen sidewalls for improved cornering reaction, lower rolling resistance and increased tread stability.
H (130 miles per hour) and V (149 mph) speed records, which provide control "at speed" for high efficiency automobiles.
All-season designs (Although dry designs provide remarkable cornering response and high-speed stability in wet and dry conditions.).
Tread designs with an emphasis on optimum contact spot.
Softer tread compounds for much better traction.
Lower UTQG ratings and much shorter treadlife.
Advanced belt and cap ply packages that aid maintain an optimum contact patch and optimum tire shape at high speeds.
Many bead and sidewall improvements that stiffen the casing for better cornering reaction and high speed stability.

Ultra High Performance tires.

Ultra High Efficiency tires take material and tire design innovation to the limit. The Pirelli P-Zero Nero represents a tire created for extreme performance with the largest contact patch in its class.
The most affordable profiles achievable by design and product innovation, as low as 25 series, that deliver the best control and response at speed (Tire sizes as much as 22 inches and cross-section widths as much as 345 mm are readily available.).

W (168 miles per hour), Y (186 miles per hour) or Z (over 149 miles per hour) speed ratings, for the supreme in high-speed control.
Asymmetric and directional tread designs that make the most of dry contact patch and damp control (All-season designs compromise extreme efficiency for year round usability.).
"Sticky" tread substances that trade off treadlife for performance (The UTQG tread use records for ultra high efficiency tires are the most affordable of any tire developed for everyday street usage.).
Design innovations and exotic lightweight products to boost handling and high-speed control.
Designs that provide a smoother, quieter ride (A car with an ultra high performance suspension is required to get the complete advantage.).

Competition tires.

Competition tires are constructed for racing categories that need a DOT-approved tire. While legal for the street, the racing compounds and virtually groove-free designs make these tires impractical for most users.
R compounding specifically created for racing (Heat cycling competitors tires will enhance wear and traction.).
UTQG tread wear scores below 100.
Minimum tread depths that deliver improved racing traction.
A racing belt plan that stiffens tread to keep maximum contact spot under extreme steering reaction.
Huge block designs that approach racing slick traction.
Drag slick designs that include versatile sidewalls which take full advantage of traction throughout acceleration.
Tire Types for Trucks and SUVs.

AP tires.

AP type tires are initial equipment on a number of today's vehicles due to their smooth, quiet highway trip and great all-season traction. Often described as All-Purpose or Mud and Snow designs, the Pirelli Scorpion STR and Michelin LTX M/S are good examples of this tire type. AP type tires frequently consist of the following functions and choices:.
All-season tread designs and full-depth siping that offer confident traction all year.
Peaceful, stable highway trip.
A large range of sizes (from 14- to 17-inches), and load carrying capacities.
Substances that highlight excellent wear and traction in a vast array of temperatures.
40,000 miles of service.


All Terrain tires.

All Terrain tires are an action up in off-road traction from the AP designs. This is arguably the most popular truck tire classification. The majority of users are willing to accept the highway trip tradeoff in order to get the added traction. Our Pathfinder AT and the BFGoodrich All Terrain KO are both very popular tires in this classification. All Terrain tires frequently consist of the following functions and choices:.

Tread design with bigger blocks and greater void (location where there is no tread) for better clean out of mud and snow.
A large choice of sizes for pick-ups and SUVs of all types and load-carrying abilities.
Ply ratings that range from four-ply to eight-ply for lots of sizes, with extreme ten-ply or twelve-ply records readily available in unique sizes.
Mud and Snow rating.
Designs that wear longer and ride more quietly over the roadway.

Mud Terrain tires.

Mud Terrain designs represent the extreme in traction tires that are still acceptable for highway usage. The emphasis is on off-road traction for those whose hobby or business requires the ultimate grip in mud, sand, rocks, or any possible off-road condition. The Goodyear Wrangler MTR and BFGoodrich Mud Terrain KM are outstanding examples of tires in this category. Mud Terrain tires frequently consist of the following functions and alternatives:.
Tread designs that feature the biggest possible block sizes and high void ratios for grip and durability under severe off-road conditions.
Sizes that range as much as the very tallest and largest offered for enhanced flotation and axle clearance.
Ply ratings that vary up to eight-ply (Extra sidewall and tread support plies are frequently included to safeguard versus puncture.).
Tread compounds with silica included to stiffen the blocks for enhanced resilience and wear.
Refinements in noise reduction and highway control to make the tires more "streetable".

Winter season Tires.

Winter tires are more specialized than numerous individuals believe. People commonly associate winter tires with old kinds of snow tires that were loud, installed on the rear of the vehicle and needed studs for traction when driving in icy conditions. Today's innovation has actually changed all that. Winter tires for cars and minivans are now relevant to a large range of drivers and vehicle types. These tires are perfect for drivers who may encounter a broad range of potential winter season conditions consisting of snow, ice, slush, rain, and freezing rain. These tires remain relevant for dry highway conditions. A lack of winter tires poses a risk to safe driving when major climate condition unexpectedly arise. Since of the significant traction enhancement of winter tires, especially in chillier temperature levels, they ought to just be used in sets of 4. Winter season tires typically include the following functions and choices:.
Tread designs that balance a smooth, quiet trip (very little different than your "other" tires) with instant traction when bad winter weather condition develops.
Advanced design in tread compounds, including soft, microfilament grip products that remain flexible in the coldest temperatures.
Superior snow and ice traction without the requirement for studs (Some designs permit for studding, however, for those who stay in more severe climates.).
Added siping (really little slits in the blocks that provide additional gripping edges throughout the treadface), which boosts traction for any road condition however is particularly helpful for snow and ice.
Q-, S- or T- speed score for the everyday motorist.
Winter season tires created for performance vehicles are intended for the motorist who requires boosted winter season traction but desires as much responsive, high-speed handling as possible. Performance winter season tires commonly include the following features and choices:.

H speed rating (Although a few V-rated models are readily available.).
Directional and unbalanced tread design which enhance efficiency traction (These must not be intermixed. Make use of the same item for all four tires.).
Special tread substances that remain pliable in exceptionally cold weather and include microfilaments for prolonged snow grip.
Additional siping (extremely small slits in the blocks that give additional gripping edges throughout the treadface), which enhances traction for any road condition but is particularly useful for snow and ice.
Measure to 18 in wheel sizes, random sample widths as much as 285 mm, and profiles as low as 40 series.
