Features & Specs - Hankook Dynapro ATM
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 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.
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.
We've had 11+ inches of snow in the week since I got these tires. Going from an All Season radial to an AT tire, yes, they are noisier - but to me that is expected behavior. Snow, slush, and ice traction on our '07 Ridgeline is greatly improved. At first I thought the ATM's were a little squirrelly on the highway, but I've decided they are just more responsive than the previous car tires we had on the truck.<br /><br />The folks on the Ridgeline Owner's forum said you can't go wrong with this tire, and I can now attest that they were 100% correct!

After about 15,000 miles these tires become way too noisy for a typical SUV. Between 30 and about 55mph it is simply too noisy to hold a conversation. I live at 9600' and wanted great traction, which they have, but there are many other tires out there for the same price that offer great traction with normal road noise.
