Patriot Tires offers a range of touring, sport touring, all-terrain, mud and highway tires in the sizes to work on the most popular cars, trucks and SUVs in America. Below are the frequently asked questions answered for the users. Feel free to ask the questions you are interested in, and most likely you will see your question posted in this section soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s fair to say, that Patriot Tires are affordable tires, as the brand does not spend a lot on advertisement. That’s why the price range is lower if compared to the same tires by the other international brands that advertise a lot.
Many understand the desire to support American made (Patriot Tires follow the same ideals), however, the economics just don't work for the tire industry (just ask Japanese based brand Toyo). Patriot Tires made a great effort to keep every facet of the business here in the USA (design, testing, marketing, customer service, legal, quality assurance, distribution, and sales). The actual tires are manufactured by an American owned factory in Taiwan. Patriot Tires only use rubber from Malaysia and Thailand, no Chinese influence on the product.
Patriot Tires won’t be issuing a tread life rating any time soon; that’s just asking for trouble. There are so many variables when it comes to tire wear: alignment, lift height, rotational intervals, etc. However, Patriot Tires do use a harder rubber compound than any other mud tire manufacturer on the market. Similar to semi truck tires, Patriot tires are designed to wear better under heavy loads and heat.
Patriot Tires have done their best to anticipate your tire needs by providing the sizes you see on the website (including bigger sizes you didn’t even know wanted, yet). However, Patriot Tires constantly monitors the pulse of this industry. If/when they see a significant need for the size you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll see it soon. If you’re running an odd tire/rim combo it might be a minute.
Just because these tires were designed with heavy duty pickup trucks in mind, does not mean that they won't work on lighter vehicles. The only difference that you will notice is that other tires use softer rubber and 8 ply instead 10 ply sidewalls to grip just a little bit better in off-road situations. However, aggressive tread pattern design of Patriot Tires usually compensates for the stiffer rubber and most drivers won't notice the difference.

Pay attention at these tires if you wish to get good product that will not break the bank. Good value for the money. I've got a set of their all-terrain tires, and they are not worse than the others by *** I had before, even though the previous set was way more expensive....

A common challenge when buying tires is understanding the different types of tires, and which one will work best for you.


Like every tire brand, Patriot uses common tire abbreviations on the tires. They are the same for all tire brands that are made in the world. When selecting tires for your car, truck or SUV it is a good idea to understand what the sidewall markings mean, in order to understand specs of the tires you select.

Tire Codes Explanation

The first number one can normally see on a tire sidewall is the tire width (in millimeters). In the example above, the tire width is 195 mm. This is a measurement between the sides of tire, from one sidewall to another. Some tire brands use extra letter before the number that denotes width. In the example above, the letter is missing. However, if you see P195, this is a passenger tire that is 195 mm wide. As a rule, width on the sidewall is followed by a slash (/) or a space.
Aspect ratio follows the width in the common tire codes. Sometimes, tire manufacturers can use a space or slash mark between them. Aspect ratio is the second number you can see on the tire sidewall. It explains, how tall is the tire profile. In the example above, aspect ratio equals to 65. Modern tire codes deliver the aspect ratio as percentage. It is calculated by dividing the height of the tire by its width. If you see, that aspect ratio is 65, it means that the height of the tire is 65% of its width. In general, the lower aspect ratio (around 60) means better handling.
Construction type is the letter that follows the aspect ratio in the tire code. It denotes the type of the tire internal construction, that maintains the tire stability on the road. There are 2 types of construction:
  1. R - Radial;
  2. D - Diagonal (also known as Bias Ply).
The majority of tires used in the U.S. are radial tires, and that is the only kind of construction offered by Fuzion tires. So chances are high, that you also have got radial tires on your daily driver. This construction means, that the internal ply cords of the tire are positioned in radial direction, perpendicular to the rotation axis and placed from one bead over to the other.
Explanation of rim diameter is pretty simple, especially for the Americans, who normally use inches to measure something. So, the number, that follows construction type on the tire code, is the diameter of the rim in inches. In the example provided, the code says ‘R15’, which means the rim diameter is 15 inches.
Load index is the combination of digits that follows the rim diameter. It tells, how much weight a tire can support when it is completely inflated (weight in lbs). This measurement is called as load index, since it does not give the exact weight the tire is developed to carry, but it corresponds to certain capacity as an index. You can find a number from 1 to 150, which represents load capacities between 99 and 735 lbs.
Speed rating is the last letter in the tire codes. It works exactly as the load index does for the particular load. This means, that speed rating letter corresponds to a certain speed capability from the internationally standardized base. In the example above, the speed rating is ‘H’. Alternatively, it can be ‘R’ for tires rated up to 106 mph, or ‘S’ for the tires rated for up to 112 mph. Note, that this is not recommended cruising speed, but the speed limit that should not be exceeded for certain tires. The higher speed rating is, the better is handling performance tires offer. If you happen to use tires with different speed ratings on one vehicle, the least speed rating should not be exceeded.
