This week’s tire safety tip: What do these symbols mean in your SUV tire? – H/T A/T M/T
H/T - means Highway Terrain. This tire is made for paved roads. Most SUVs come originally equipped with H/T tires are they are usually quiet, comfortable and long lasting. Perfect for daily urban driving.
A/T – means All Terrain tire. The tire is designed to handle both off and on road driving. The tread design is more rugged compared to the H/T that is why it is favored by SUV owners who are going after the looks.
M/T – means Mud Terrain. This is the ultimate “macho” tire as evident with its aggressive tread design. The tire is good for mostly unpaved roads. Think traversing farms and conquering mountains. The tire is uncomfortable and noisy for daily commute in paved roads though, so make sure you need this before changing over.
