Treadwear Performance Rank
Treadwear performance is a measure of how well the tire matched up to customers’ expectations of how many miles they will last. Keep in mind, this rating can be influenced significantly by users giving it 1-star or 5-stars because expectations were too extreme. Maybe their last set of tires lasted 100,000 miles and they now think all tires will last that long (that’s extremely rare). Or perhaps their alignment was really off, causing them to wear out in only a few thousand miles.
The Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 received a Treadwear Performance rating of 4.3 / 5. This ranks it #9 among the 39 truck/suv off-road tires we’ve reviewed.
This rating is ‘middle-of-the-road’, this tire tends to last relatively as long as other truck/suv off-road tires. Without knowing one’s specific expectations, it’s likely that a typical buyer will be happy with the mileage, but not super impressed either.
Snow & Ice Performance
Snow/Ice Performance Rank
Snow and Ice performance is tested on a specifically designed track to simulate these environments. These ratings represent how confident drivers in these conditions felt on these tires.
The Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 received a Snow & Ice Performance rating of 4.1 / 5. This ranks it #13 among the 39 truck/suv off-road tires we’ve reviewed.
These tires rated relatively well for snow/ice. While not the absolute best, you can depend on these tires to get you through light/medium snowfall and occasional ice. However, if you frequently have deep snow or lots of ice, it would be our recommendation to find tires that fairs better in this category.
Off-Road Performance Rank
The off-road ratings represent how satisfied other drivers were in these conditions. These conditions could include anything from dirt/gravel roads to extreme offroading/bouldering. If you intend to use these in more extreme conditions, we always recommend checking individual reviews on TireRack.com for specific examples.
