How to Compare the Value on Tyres

Firstly, choose which kind of tyre you'd like to compare: 

 

By comparing the value of your tyres, you know exactly what you're going to get out of your investment. Whether it's more safety and grip you're after from your SUV/Car tyres, or more mileage and traction from your 4WD tyres, here's how you can compare the value:

What are UTQG Ratings? UTQG Ratings

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grading) is an American Law, accepted by all manufacturers in all countries, that allows buyers to directly compare key tyre attributes: treadwear, traction and temperature. By comparing the Treadwear and Traction Ratings on the tyres, you can see how a higher treadwear rating gives you more mileage and a higher traction rating gives you safer grip.

 

Treadwear ratings are an indication of a tyre’s wear rate. The higher the treadwear number, the longer it will take for the tread to wear down.

Traction ratings are an indication of a tyre’s ability to stop in the wet. A higher grade allows your vehicle to stop in a shorter distance than a tyre with a lower grade.

 

How do I compare the expected mileage?

With two examples below as a sample, learn how to calculate the expected mileage by using the treadwear ratings to compare the value of the original tyres to Cooper Tires.

COMPARE THE VALUE OF YOUR 4WD TYRES

HOW DO THE TREAD DEPTHS OF 4WD TYRES COMPARE?

 

Deeper treads in 4WD tyres mean more grip, more miles and more value for your money.

With three examples below as a sample, learn how to calculate the expected mileage by using the tread depths to compare the value of the original tyres to Cooper Tires:
