Should I get at or HT tires?
On paved roads, compared to AT tires, HT tires will give longer tread-life, better handling, and shorter braking distances, in both dry and wet conditions. Also, HT tires have lower rolling resistance than AT tires and will provide better fuel economy.
What is the difference between H T and a T tires?
Purpose. Highway performance boils down to how much rubber your tire puts on the road. However, the broad patches of rubber used on highway tires tend to float over the surface of sand, mud and grass without digging in for traction. This is the primary difference between H/T (highway tread) and A/T (all terrain) tires.
Which is better T or H speed rating?
H rated tires have stronger construction than T rated tires. The concern may not be speed although a Subaru can exceed 118 MPH hence those tires however it may be load rating of the tires. Lessor speed rated tires must be able to handle the listed load of your vehicle properly. Confirm this, a good tire shop will.
Are HT tires good in snow?
We found the Fortitude HT was better accelerating on packed snow than either the all-terrain or mud tires in this test, but it didn’t provide the grip characteristics of either of the dedicated winter tires. TireRack.com price per tire: $131.
Are a T tires good in rain?
They will be good in the rain, but can be awful in dirt or snow. Highway tread and many all season tires are made this way. The difference between an all season, an all terrain, and a mud tire is mostly the amount of “tread void”, or space between the tread blocks.
What is LT and HT tires?
There are two designations for truck, CUV, and SUV tires: Passenger (P) and Light Truck (LT). Passenger tires are designed for use on lighter weight vehicles such as regular passenger cars, minivans and CUVs. LT tires are designed for heavier vehicles like larger trucks, SUVs, and vans.
What are the two types of tires?
Different Types of Tires
- All-Season. The all-season touring tire is designed to deliver good comfort and handling on the highway, as well as reliable all-season traction.
- Track and Competition.
What is a tire speed rating of H?
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.
Do all terrain tires get worse gas mileage?
All terrain tires won’t have the same fuel efficiency as passenger car tires, but still don’t increase fuel consumption as much as their mud terrain cousins. They also have a larger effect on fuel economy. The consensus is, that on average, all–terrain tires decrease fuel economy by about 3% compared to highway tires.
How fast is speed rating T?
Tire Speed Ratings Safety
|Speed Rating||Maximum Speed|
|S||Up to 112 mph|
|T||Up to 118 mph|
|U||Up to 124 mph|
|H||Up to 130 mph|
Can I use V-rated tires instead of H?
The rating is the speed the tire has been tested to for continuous safe driving. The English equivalent speed for H–rated tires is 130 mph and V–rated tires are good for up to 149 mph.
What does 102 mean on a tire?

What is the best all season tire in snow?
Much like the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady, the Michelin CrossClimate offers better snow traction than normal all season tires, albeit for crossovers and SUVs. This tire comes with the 3PMSF rating (Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake), which means that it can be used in severe wintry conditions.
Are all-terrain tires better than all season tires in snow?
A good all–terrain tire is not necessarily a good winter snow tire, even though it has a wide-open tread pattern like a snow tire. For several reasons, a good all–season tire has equal and often better performance in both shallow and deep snow than a good all–terrain tire.
What does LT stand for on tires?
If a tire size reads, LT235/75R15 104/101S, the LT indicates that this tire is meant for Light Truck use. These tires are made for light-duty and heavy-duty pickup trucks (typically ½ ton, ¾ ton, or 1-ton load capacity), SUVs and vans.
