Buying 4x4 tyres used to be something that only a tiny minority of drivers needed to do. Land Rovers and Jeeps were bought by a niche market, and only really driven by farmers and soldiers, as well as anyone who needed a rugged, off-road vehicle.
You can still buy some of the big off-roaders, but these days Sports Utility Vehicles – or SUVs as they’re known – come in even the most compact of sizes. This makes them a popular choice with all kinds of drivers.
Around a quarter of all new cars sold in Europe are now 4x4s, crossovers, or SUVs – even if most of them never go anywhere that a typical family saloon wouldn’t. A higher driving position, better handling in severe weather conditions and a sporty image all help to make these types of cars an extremely popular choice.
However, whether you are doing the daily commute, picking up the groceries, or you regularly spend time driving along tracks and unmetalled roads, choosing the best 4x4 tyres for your needs will enhance the comfort and safety of you and your passengers – so it’s essential that you buy the right ones.
4x4 tyres are for the vehicles that rarely do off-road journeys. These types of tyres are designed for conventional roads, are bigger than standard car tyres, and have different tread patterns that allow for occasional off-road use.
The difference between 4x4, all terrain and off-road tyres?
For when you need fantastic handling and grip on muddy, uneven surfaces and steep inclines, off-road tyres are perfect. However, they do not adapt well on tarmac. If they are used on tarmac, they will wear a lot faster and increase your fuel consumption due to having a higher rolling resistance.
Whether you’re headed for the motorway, or off on a weekend adventure in much more challenging conditions, all terrain tyres come in very handy. These types of tyres are designed to provide a great balance between on-road tyres, which are used on conventional roads, and off-road tyres, which provide the best grip in extreme terrains. Their tread pattern allows them to cope in a number of different conditions, without causing excessive fuel consumption.
What are the benefits of 4x4 tyres?
4x4 tyres come in a range of different types and sizes, meaning that you’ll always be able to find the ones that are perfect for your vehicle. Not only can they safely handle heavy loads with ease, but they also offer exceptional traction in extreme conditions. When you’re driving in adverse weather conditions such as ice or snow, they will provide a much better grip, and get you to the top of the steep inclines that standard tyres would not be able to reach.
How much do 4x4 tyres cost?
Here at Protyre, we stock a range of 4x4 tyres for sale to suit every budget. Depending on whether you need on-road 4x4 tyres, all-terrain tyres or off-road car tyres, the cost can vary. You can find out how much 4x4 tyres are for your vehicle by entering your registration into the box on this page.
What are the differences between standard tyres and 4x4 tyres?
To a layperson, all tyres look pretty much the same. However, this is of course not the case. The quality of rubber and other compounds, the size and shape of the treads, and the spaces between those treads all have an impact on vehicle handling and road holding. Tyres for 4x4 vehicles are softer with deeper treads that have much wider spacing between them.
For off-road driving purposes, the specialist 4x4 tyres that you fit – whether they’re Pirelli, Bridgestone or a budget brand – will provide the essential grip and traction required. Off-road tyres flex to cope with the muddiest and most unstable of surfaces, allowing you to go where normal tyres simply couldn’t.
The downside to that is that off-road tyres tend to wear out much faster than you might expect on normal roads, so they need replacing much more frequently. Also, unlike two-wheel drive vehicles, it’s advised to use the same tyres on all four wheels, since they’re all driven by the engine.
