You'll want to do your homework with a knowledgeable tire expert and plan on upgrading to a high quality Off Road All Terrain tire well before you try to navigate those pulse pounding, muddy trails in your vehicle. At Niagara Battery & Tire, our staff can help you determine the size and tread pattern that will provide that all-important performance, handling and safety to get the most out of your quad, Samurai, Jeep or other all-terrain or off road vehicle.
Think about the conditions you drive in - are you most often conquering off road terrain and wet or icy roads, or are you regularly climbing mud, rocks or soft snow? The obstacles you meet will determine the type of tire that would perform best for you. Both all-terrain and mud terrain tires have aggressive tread patterns, but the sidewalls on all-terrains mean they'll resist punctures more easily. Mud tires won't provide the right traction on roads as their treads are large, chunky and designed to grab onto mud. While all-season and all-terrains often have built-in siping, that would most often have to be added to mud tires. The Off Road All Terrain tire has as much capability off the road as it does on the road. The tread blocks are multifaceted to help deliver traction from any direction on dirt, sand, gravel, and snow. Whether your off-road adventures are on trails or snow covered highways, deep mud or loose rock, Off Road tires bite into loose or muddy surfaces for maximum traction to propel the vehicle forward. While these tires emphasize off road travel, the newest designs are refined for highway travel, too.
There's a lot to think about and plan for to get your off-road vehicle ready to conquer those rugged hills of rocks, mud and snow. We carry hundreds of tires from industry leading, trusted manufacturers so you get hassle-free, reliable and personalized customer service. Come and see us today.
