The use of SUV or 4x4 tyres is becoming increasingly popular with motorists today, and there comes the need for special SUV/4x4 tyres. Compared with commercial car tyres, these SUV/4X4 tyres are characterised by a different structure and by special driving characteristics. This is necessary due to the tyres having to lift a vehicle of a greater weight and also to withstand higher forces due to higher vehicle centre of gravity. Also with these tyres, the profile structure and the tread depth vary, depending on whether the optimum traction is mostly required on wet roads or on grass, mud, snow or gravel surfaces.
Each manufactures can offer a varied range of SUV/4X4 tyres to suit your specific driving needs when driving off-road vehicles.
Among the Pirelli or Dunlop SUV tyre ranges there are tyres for Street Terrain, Mud Terrain or for All Terrain and under the Michelin manufacturer there are open road tyres.
- Street Terrain tyres are suitable for motorists who prefer to travel on paved roads rather than off-road. It's the kind of tyres that SUVs are often equipped with as standard.
- All Terrain tyres can be used on the tarmac and in light to medium terrain. They drive smoothly and comfortably on the road and safely and agile on rough terrain.
- Mud Terrain tyres have been designed for predominantly off-road use. This includes rocky ground.
