Best Tires for SUVs at Pep Boys


When buying SUV or crossover tires, you are presented with multiple options. This is due to those vehicles’ on- and off-road capabilities and because they typically have enough space and power to hull heavier cargo. Before deciding on SUV tires, it helps to know how you intend to use the vehicle. TIRES BY SIZE TIRES BY VEHICLE

What SUV tire options are there?

Nearly any type of tire, if it is the correct size, can work on a SUV or crossover; it depends on your intended use for the vehicle. Touring and passenger tires are options if you intend to primarily drive on the road. Off-road enthusiasts might be interested in all-terrain tires or even mud-terrain tires. If hauling heavier loads like what you might in a pickup truck or on a trailer is the goal, some SUV and crossovers can be fitted with light truck (LT) tires.

How long do SUV tires last?

Warranties on SUV tires tend to be shorter than those for a car, because some are designed to carry heavy loads and/or for off-road travel. You can expect to find SUV tires warrantied for about 40,000-70,000 miles.
