What is an Off Road Tyre?
An off road tyre is a type of tyre used for driving on rough and soft terrain that is not suitable for normal conventional road tyres. Off Road tyres can also be used when you are travelling on unpaved roads or in areas where the road is covered in snow. Off road tyres are designed to be more durable and puncture-resistant than normal road tyres. They also have a softer rubber compound to give you more grip on loose surfaces. They are also wider than normal tyres to help you tackle more challenging terrain.
What to look for when buying Off Road Tyres?
When you are choosing which off road tyres to buy, you need to consider a number of things. Firstly, you need to make sure that you are buying the correct size of tyre for your vehicle. The best way to do this is to either check your existing tyre sizes, or check in your vehicle manufacturer handbook. Next, you need to decide on the type of tyre that will best suit your driving conditions. You can find this information in the product descriptions of various tyres or you can speak to an expert about which type will suit you best.

Why Do You Need Off-Road Tyres?
If you only ever drive on the road, you will be fine with regular car tyres. Off-road tyres are specially made for driving on loose and slippery terrain and will give you much better traction than regular road tyres. If you are planning on taking your vehicle off the road, you should always be sure to fit off-road tyres. Without them, you are more likely to get stuck and could damage your vehicle and the surrounding terrain. With the right set of off-road tyres, you can easily navigate any challenging terrain and have a great time doing it.
