Temperature

The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger care tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law.

Warning: The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is propertly inflated and not overloaded. Escessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.
