All-Terrain Tyres – What are they, and do I need them?

12/03/2019

If you own a crossover vehicle and like to get out on the weekends, chances are you own a set of All-Terrain tyres. But, if you’re not sure what we are on about then dive on in - we’ll break down the fundamental aspects of AT tyres. We’ll also look at our hot picks so that you can get the full enjoyment from your driving.

The all-terrain tyre is a mix of both mud terrain (M/T) and highway terrain (H/T). The gravel filtering tread pattern offers the bite and toughness you come to expect from a mud terrain tyre while still offering a quiet, smooth ride on the highway.

AT tyres provide you with a quiet ride due to their reinforced sidewall. Tyre manufacturers have been engineering the sidewalls of AT tyres to perfect the balance between driving in comfort and providing durability, both on and off the road.

From bitumen and gravel to top 4X4 tracks around the country, the AT tyre is designed to withstand anything Australian off road has to offer, but it’s on the long and dusty gravel roads of the outback that the particular tread patterns of the All-Terrain tyres really shine!

Tyre Zone Capalaba, east of Brisbane has a great range of AT tyres at your convenience. Drop by or call us to discuss your driving needs with one of our expert tyre fitters and mechanics.
