Sustained   high    temperature   can
cause  the   material  of   the  tire   to
degenerate and  reduce tire life,  and
excessive  temperature  can  lead  to
sudden tire failure. The Grade C cor-
responds  to a  level  of performance
which  all  passenger  car tires  must
meet    under   the    Federal   Motor
Vehicle  Safety   Standard  NO.  109.
Grades  B  and  A  represent   higher
