used primarily on the highway and are designed to
perform well during any season. These tires are used
on Passenger Car, Light Trucks and All-Terrain
Vehicles only. These tires can provide excellent
mileage and good steering and traction on
(2) All-Terrain Tires. All-Terrain tires can
be used on the highway but are designed to also to
be used off-road on trails or cross-country. All
terrain tires provide good off-road performance but
less mileage than All-Season or rib tread tires. They
have good flotation and high resistance to bruises,
cuts, and punctures.
(3) Mud-and-Snow Tires. Mud-and-snow
tires are manufactured for passenger cars and light
trucks only. The tires are labeled with MUD AND
SNOW or any contraction using the letters M and S,
(e.g. MS, M/S, M&S, or M+S). These tires have an
aggressive lug tread, different tread compound, and
internal construction designed for better starting,
stopping, and driving in mud and snow. These tires
provide more mobility in an off-road environment
but less mileage on highway.
