There comes a certain point of any off-roading adventure or deep woods race/journey where it has been hours since you last saw a paved road. The only sounds you hear are your rig conquering the obstacles thrown your way, and you just know you are the only person out this far, or down this deep. It is at this point where your rig ceases to be a simple conduit for your adventure and adrenaline surge and it shifts towards being your lifeline. Here we will talk about the best All-Terrain tires for trucks and SUVs.
Regardless of where you are conquering the rough and rugged terrain – be it sightseeing in the rocky terrains on Iceland, or dominating the mountain trails scattered across Arizona – the most important thing for you in these circumstances is that your truck or SUV is up to the challenges you are about to put it through.
While there is a lot that goes into these special trucks and SUVs in order to make them the perfect machines for these types of deep-dive adventures, one of the most important factors between you getting out of any situation and you maybe being in a bit of trouble is your choice of tire on your rig. When it comes to dominating all-terrain, you must make sure that the all-terrain tires you equip your ride with are up to the challenge.
Sure, almost any tire on a truck or SUV will be able to handle loose gravel, dirt roads, and even mild inclines with next to no effort. However, when this type of adventure really gets fun is when the terrain turns gnarly, and for that type of turn, you need specific equipment in order to make sure you are safe and can get the absolute most out of it.
This is where dedicated off-road tires come into play.
These tires (either classified at A/T for all-terrain or M/T for mud terrain) are usually designed with a combination of a few factors such as reinforced sidewalls, amazing tread depth, kevlar lining, and a knobby construction.
Which Tires Are Best For Your Ride?
Tires such as the BFGoodrich All-Terrain TA KO2 are known for being amazing at handling rough conditions like climbing over rocks and trudging through sand, like the conditions seen during the Baja 1000. However, there are other tires that are more suited to muddy terrain, ones that are great for crushing over rocks and other harsh terrains without fear of puncturing. This is to say that there are many different tires with many different strengths (and none are immune to failure.) So, when picking which tire is best for your ride, you need to make sure you know what kind of conditions you are going to be putting yourself and your truck or SUV through. This will help you get a better understanding of what kind of advantages you need and what features you can pass up on. Properly equipping your truck or SUV with the right all-terrain tire for the job will result in an amazing experience.
