A large number of people call 4x4 tyres when they aren’t they are 4x4 off-road tyres and then there’s also 4x4 all-terrain and 4x4 on-road tyres.Let us make a start by covering the road tyres; these tyres are uniquely designed to retain the grip on mud, grass, snow, and dirt. The tread on these tyres is a lot deeper and they have larger gaps in between them than the average car tyre. On a muddy surface, a road tyre's shallow tread would become clogged with mud which would lead to a loss of friction; this is crucial to ensure good grip rather than having a spinning tyre.
On and off-road tyres have a far deeper tread depth. Therefore, the chances of the tyre becoming clogged up are less likely. This is down to the rubber been in contact with the ground at all times. This, however, can cause more friction as when the vehicle is on a typical road surface they will become worn a lot quicker, therefore, reducing its life expectancy. The friction can slow the vehicle right down which in turn will have an impact on your fuel consumption. One simple way of remembering this is the greater the friction between the vehicle and the road will mean your engine is having to work a lot harder to move the vehicle.We hope you found this information helpful and the next time you’re looking for a high quality affordable 4x4 tyre then finding the correct tyre for your vehicle could not be easier and is merely a few clicks away.
