What Tires Are Right For Your Truck?

May 11th, 2017

So you’re in need of a set of tires for your truck? No problem! The question is, though, what kind of tires are going to be best?Truck Tires

First, you’ll need to think about what you use that truck for. Will you regularly be hauling heavy loads or pulling a trailer? Do you expect to keep it on the pavement for the most part, or will you occasionally go off-road? If you go off-road, will it be on soft dirt or will you be plowing through brush, mud, and rocks? And finally…what’s your budget?

If you’re wanting to keep it on the pavement most of the time and your truck is a daily driver for errands, school, soccer, and grocery runs, all-season tires are probably the right choice. All-season light truck tires can rival the best passenger tires when it comes to noise level, handling, ride quality and road manners while offering good, reliable traction on wet or dry pavement.

All-terrain tires feature a more aggressive tread pattern than all-season tires and are capable of at least limited off-road use. While they have enhanced traction and load capacity, many all-terrain tire designs still have good noise suppression, ride quality and handling on the pavement. Many all-terrain tires feature the industry’s M + S stamp, meaning they offer good performance in mud and snow.

Mud tires are a next step up from all-terrain tires. Mud tires usually feature a blocky tread pattern with a high void ratio, meaning they can shed mud from their treads as they spin so there’s always a clear area to dig into soft surfaces. Many mud tires are also designed with reinforced sidewalls for extra toughness and resistance to gouges, punctures, and abrasions in off-road use.

In the end, the choice is yours, of course. Just think about your truck, your driving habits, your expectations and your budget. There are plenty of great choices out there for light truck tires, at all price points! Make an appointment with us and let’s talk about the next set of tires for your truck!
