Australia boasts some of the most difficult off-roading in the world, making 4WD tyres essential for drivers who are planning on experiencing such roads. Though, once you have decided on a set of 4WD tyres, the tyres will eventually require replacement due to wear, but before all that, let's explore your options.

How to choose the right tyre for your 4WD?

Aside from what the manufacturer fitted your vehicle with from the factory, there are several options for new 4WD tyres. You may also have lots of reasons why you might choose a different tyre. Factors to consider when making a decision include weight limit, size, tread type, terrain expectations, noise levels, and performance.

At Tyres R Us, we offer a wide selection of off-road tyres for 4WDs to suit everyone’s needs. Among the popular options, you’ll find highway-terrain, all-terrain, and mud-terrain.

Highway-Terrain tyres

HT tyres are your best option if you plan to drive your 4WD more on road than off road. This is because these tyres are designed to be used primarily on sealed roads.


  • Low load index
  • High-speed rating
  • Good tread wear
  • Excellent handling on wet asphalt


  • Provide a comfortable and quiet drive
  • Deliver smooth driving
  • Give predictable, balanced handling

Toyo Open Country U/T

The Open Country U/T delivers safety, performance, and value to a wide range of everyday utes, 4x4s, and SUVs.

This tyre provides considerable improvements in wet traction, fuel economy, and comfort without compromising mileage.

AT tyres

All-Terrain tyres can be used on any type of road and in a variety of conditions.

AT tyres have a deeper, more aggressive tread pattern compared to HT tyres, which increases off-road driving traction.


  • Moderate load index
  • Moderate speed rating
  • Aggressive and deep tread
  • Strong and thick sidewalls


  • Suitable for a variety of surfaces, including rocky off-road tracks and sealed roads.
  • Provide more durability compared to HT tyres
  • Generally, offer a comfortable driving experience

MT tyres

Mud terrain tyres have more aggressive treads than AT or HT tyres. The treads on MT tyres are made to withstand Australia's toughest terrain. MT tyres don't perform optimally on sealed roads because of their high rolling resistance, leading to increased fuel consumption and noise.


  • High load index
  • Low-speed rating
  • Strong construction
  • Large, open tread pattern


  • High-quality puncture resistance
  • Perform well on a variety of difficult terrains, including steep terrains, loose gravel, mud and sand
