All-Terrain Tyres for your 4WD
Your vehicle’s performance on and off-road can be influenced by the type of tyre you choose.
What you intend to do with your vehicle and where you’re planning on taking it will dictate the sort of tyre that will work best.
In this article, we’ll explain to you the features and characteristics of All-terrain tyres so you can make the right decision when choosing the tyres for your 4WD. We’ll also give you some examples of All-Terrain tyres we sell at Tyres R Us that are popular among our customers.
How to choose the right AT tyre?
Firstly, you need to know what type of driving you will be doing, or intending to do. For instance, you may be thinking of getting your four-wheel drive onto a rocky surface road. In this case, what you need will differ from someone who frequently spends their time on suburban roads.
Due to their versatility, many people refer to AT tyres as a ‘good all-rounder’ but you should keep in mind that their characteristics may be quite different among tyre manufacturers, especially in terms of strength, quality, and tread pattern design.
Generally, AT tyres have a moderate speed symbol and load index, which can be easily used on sealed types of roads and some off-road conditions. But, if for any reason, you’re looking for a tyre suited for heavier duty, it may be wise to get an AT tyre that is marked as a light truck tyre.
Here at Tyres R Us, we provide a new generation of 4WD tyres for drivers of 4x4s, SUVs, and utes. We supply and fit a great range of all-terrain tyres from leading brands, including Toyo, Continental, and BFGoodrich.
