Summary:An all season tire designed for light duty pickups and SUVs. It has a 60,000 mile treadwear warranty.
The Uniroyal Laredo Cross Country is part of the tire
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, all season truck tire
models like the Laredo Cross Country are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Dry braking is from 60 to 0 mph.
Wet braking is from 60 to 0 mph.
Handling includes how well the tires gripped in an avoidance maneuver involving a swerve into the left lane and back into the right lane; wet and dry cornering grip on our skid pad; and subjective steering feel.

Speed rating Speed rating. This letter denotes the maximum sustainable speed and is found directly after the load index. For S-speed-rated tires, it's 112 mph; for T, 118 mph. Speed ratings for other tires include Q, 99 mph; H, 130 mph; V, 149 mph; and Z, 150 mph plus. While such speeds may seem wildly impractical, tires with higher speed ratings tend to provide better handling at legal speed limits. Choose tires that have a speed rating at least as high as the one specified on your vehicle's placard.
Treadwear warranty Commonly used by tire manufacturers to market tires, the warranty describes the typical tread life of the tire. Consumers should view the warranty an indicator of tread life only. Actual mileage will vary with vehicle type, driving style, road, and weather conditions, just to name a few variables. Nearly all treadwear warranties are based on pro-rated amount based on the usable tread worn off the tire.
UTQG treadwear UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG treadwear, an index developed by the government, compares a tire's tread life with that of a reference tire graded at 100. A tire with a grade of 300 is predicted to last three times as long as one graded at 100. Treadwear grades are just one indicator of tread life, but actual tire life will vary due to a number of factors including road conditions, driving habits, vehicle, and maintenance.
UTQG traction UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG traction indicates the tire's ability to stop on a wet surface with Government grades of AA, A, B, C, from best to worst.
UTQG temperature UTQGS, which stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, is a federal government required grading system for passenger tires excluding winter tires. Key information includes Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature appearing on the sidewall of a tire. UTQG temperature indicates the tire's ability to resist heat build-up under test conditions with Government grades of A, B, C, from best to worst.

Glad to be getting rid of these tires!
Inexpensive Per Tire Pric
These tires were great up to about 30,000 miles (they are supposed to be 55,000 mile tires). Since 30,000 miles I've had to replace TWO tires for damage - one had a gash in the sidewall and the other has a non-repairable hole. I've been driving for 35 years and I've NEVER had a non-repairable flat until I bought these tires and now I've had TWO in less than a year. My initially value-priced tires are now EXPENSIVE tires in that I've had to purchase SIX of them instead of just four. I'm tossing all of them and buying a different brand, what a giant waste of money.

I was skeptical when they were reccommended to me however I made the right decision. Very good wet traction in snow and water. Never lost confidence even while driving through 6 of snow and slush. I drive 2wd Ranger supercab 30K mostly hiway. I always weight bed for snow but found I don't need 500lbs., a mere 200lbs. will suffice. I believe they are under rated and the price reflects a good tire not an excellent tire. I put a lot of driving in and these tires have not scalloped or worn unevenly. They have 60k now. I'll be looking for the same tire, 235/70 R15, S rated. Just returned in a torrential downpour fishing trip, little tread held ground firmly through twisty roads, back country washouts and deer sightings. A long lasting tire excellently priced and no blown sidewalls driving through the woods to a favorite fishing spot.
