Reading a Goodyear Tire
The side of your tire, known as the sidewall, contains all the information you will need to know about your tire. Whether your tire says "Goodyear" or some other name, all tires are required to have this information.

"Wheel Diameter" is the width of the wheel from one end to the other. The diameter of this wheel is 15 inches.
"Load Index" is a number corresponds to the maximum load in pounds that a tire can support when properly inflated. You will also find the maximum load in pounds & in kilograms molded elsewhere on the tire sidewall.
"Speed Rating" is a number that corresponds to the maximum service speed for a tire. "H" means that the tire has a maximum service speed of 130 mph. Please note that this rating relates only to tire speed capability, & is NOT a recommendation to exceed legally posted speed limits; always drive within the legal speed limits.
"DOT" means the tire is compliant with all applicable safety standards established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Adjacent to this is a tire indentification or serial number; a combination of numbers & letters with up to 12 digits.
"UTQG" stands for Uniform Tire Quality Grading, a quality rating system developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
