To the untrained eye, all tires may look alike. However, tires come
in a variety of types; and choosing the right tire is crucial for your
driving safety and comfort. The tire experts at Olympic Tires can
show you the best tires for your vehicle, and then install them with
The two major categories of passenger tires are Standard and Touring. Standard tires are ideal for most 4-
door sedans, midsize or compact vehicles. They have larger sidewalls and a narrower footprint. Touring tires,
however, are usually found on more premium vehicles that are equipped with a manufacturer’s touring
suspension package. Generally, touring tires have a shorter sidewall and a larger footprint, which provides
more responsive handling.
Performance tires are a higher level of passenger tires. Tires in this group are usually placed in two
categories: High Performance or Ultra High Performance, depending on their performance/speed rating. In
both cases the speed rating ensures the tire is matched to the performance standards of the vehicle.
Performance tires are becoming original equipment on an ever-increasing number of new vehicles.
The Light Truck group is made up of the Sport Utility Vehicles and Commercial Light Truck categories. This
distinction between these two categories is primarily related to the specific vehicle and its use. Most SUV tires
provide a smoother and quieter ride while giving reasonable load-carrying capacity. Tires for commercial use
or work are capable of carrying a heavy load and are given a rating of C, D or E. These ratings indicate both
the strength and load-carrying capacity of that tire, with C being the lowest and E being the highest.
