Traction - AA, A, B & C
Temperature - A, B & C
The traction  grades, from highest  to     The temperature  grades  are A  (the
lowest,  are AA,  A, B  and  C. Those     highest),  B  and C  representing  the
grades represent  the  tire’s ability  to     tire’s resistance to  the generation of
stop on  wet pavement as  measured     heat and  its ability to  dissipate heat
under controlled conditions on  spec-     when tested under  controlled condi-
ified   government  test   surfaces  of     tions on a specified indoor laboratory
asphalt and  concrete. A tire  marked     test wheel.
The temperature  grade  for this
tire is established  for a tire that
is   properly   inflated   and   not
overloaded.  Excessive   speed,
under-inflation,   over-inflation,
or   excessive   loading,    either
separately  or   in  combination,
can  cause   heat  build-up   and
possible   sudden   tire   failure.
This may  cause loss  of vehicle
control resulting in an accident.
C  may  have poor  traction  perform-
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.     Grade    C
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
levels of performance  on the labora-
tory  test  wheel  than   the  minimum
required by law.
The traction  grade assigned  to
this  tire  is  based  on  straight-
ahead   braking  traction   tests,
and does  not include  accelera-
tion,  cornering,   hydroplaning,
or peak traction characteristics.
