What are All-Terrain Tires?

All-terrain tires are a compromise between off-road and road tires. Treading on all-terrain tires is tighter than it is for off-road/mud tires, which helps them perform adequately on the road as well. They are best suited for vehicles that will be driven on the road daily and occasionally off-road.

Can you use all-terrain tires off-road?

Yes, but the tread on most all-terrain tires can become packed with mud, making them less than ideal for muddy trails. If mudding is something you intend to do frequently, investing in a set of mud tires is recommended.On rocky and sandy conditions, all-terrain tires tend to perform fine.

How well do all-terrain tires perform on the road?

Drivers can expect adequate traction in normal road conditions with all-terrain tires but may experience more road noise than with a street tire. A benefit of all-terrain tires is they give better traction than street tires on sandy and rocky road conditions and in snow as well.

What’s the tread life for all-terrain tires?

It varies by make and model, but all-terrain tires typically have shorter tread life than street tires because they are constructed from softer rubber. Usually drivers can expect about 40,000 miles out of all-terrain tires before they need to be replaced.
