Traction: Traction is a measurement of a tire's ability to stop on wet test surfaces of asphalt and concrete under controlled conditions. Traction Grade A: The tire performed well on both surfaces. Traction Grade B: The tire performed well on at least one of the surfaces Traction Grade C: The tire performed poorly on one or both of the surfaces.
Tread-wear: Tread-wear is a measurement of tread durability. A tread-wear rating 200 means the tread wears twice as well as the standard.
Max. Load Capacity & Speed Symbol: Max. Load Capacity each tire can tolerate
Ply ratings: An older method of rating load capacity, these are listed as 4-ply, 6-ply, 8-ply, etc. Load ratings: The current method of rating a tire's load-carrying capacity is denoted by letters (B, C, etc.).
