TIRE BUYER’S GUIDE

The Latest Rubber For Your Ride
IMAGES COURTESY OF THE MANUFACTURERS

The importance of having the proper set of tires equipped on your ride can’t be stressed enough. This is true of virtually all vehicles, but none more so than on off-road trucks, Jeeps and SUVs. Combining a heavy load with uncivilized terrain can be a recipe for disaster if your vehicle can’t grip the ground. Depending on the season’s conditions and what type of usage you intend on putting your rig though, your choice of tire is an important decision to make.

While it’s easy to say that you won’t cut corners when you outfit your vehicle, your wallet may have another thing to say about it. The one thing you should never skimp on are your tires. They have the capability of getting you to your destination and back, safely and without incident.

A tire is not just a tire. Different tires, even ones from the same manufacturer, vary from one another in just about every aspect—including its tread pattern, compound, sidewall construction and load, season and speed ratings. For off roaders especially, using the right tire for your vehicle and driving situation is critical to performance and safety.

The following guide covers some of the newest tire debuts as well as updated tried and true performers. Let’s get to it and look for the perfect tire for your off-road ride.
