Types of Tires
Highway Truck tires
This type of tire is specially designed to increase good highway performance. It has low noise with a long wear time. This type of truck tire has every season tread pattern, which gives a good grip in all seasons, dry, wet, and cold weather conditions (winter).
They are designed to give comfort on pavements because they have shallow tread depths and no sidewall blocking. Highway truck tires are apt to use in sports vehicles, pickup trucks, and crossovers. They are fuel-efficient with high traction ability.
Moreover, they are made with harder compounds which lessens the rolling resistance, eventually making them long-lasting.
Max Traction Truck Tires (Mud Terrain)
These types of tires are mostly for off-road use. If you’re planning to use the vehicle in a soft, muddy area, this should be your choice.
These are typical large-sized tires with deep tread and big shoulder blocks that easily grip into the loose muddy surfaces on site. These characteristics give it maximum friction ability.
The bigger voids and sidewall lugs help them to carry the vehicle through many obstacles easily. Large bed trucks often have this kind of tires for better grip on slippery surfaces.
However, there are some disadvantages associated with it. On regular off roads, it advised to not use mud terrain tires, they are noisy, heavy, and uncomfortable with reduced gas mileage.
They need reinforcement of sidewalls to resist wear and tear, punctures and abrasions that happen very often.
Also referred to as A/T tires.
As the name indicates, it is suitable for all types of terrain and has a good deeper tread pattern. Their tread pattern has large spaces to let the mud or snow out of it easily. On the other hand, it is heavier than highway truck tires, noisier and worse when it comes to mileage.
