Mobile tyres 4 u stocks a range of 4x4 tyres suitable for SUVs for both on-road and off-road use from some of the most well-known tyre brands.
4x4 tyres come in a number of different types and sizes and are designed for use on SUVs (aka Sports Utility Vehicles) and other all-terrain vehicles.
SUV ownership in the UK has increased in recent years, so too has demand for tyres that have been specifically designed for vehicles intended for more challenging terrain and road surfaces
Here are some of the advantages of using 4x4 tyres on your SUV:
- Superior traction in extreme conditions - 4x4 tyres are designed for off-road use and are excellent on difficult terrain like soft ground and steep inclines where normal tyres aren’t up to the task and can get stuck. 4x4 tyres also demonstrate better grip in adverse weather conditions like snow and ice than conventional summer tyres.
- Tough construction to hold increased loads - 4x4 tyres typically feature a higher load index than conventional summer tyres and a rigid sidewall. This means they can safely handle heavy loads with ease – ideal for transporting bulky goods or large families.
- Specially designed for 4x4 vehicles - 4x4 vehicles have two differentials which means that power from the engine is distributed to all four wheels rather than just two on a front or rear wheel drive vehicle. As all four wheels are sharing the job of providing propulsion, it is important to fit tyres intended for specific 4x4 use as 2-wheel drive tyres may suffer from grip issues and rapid wear.
All terrain tyres
All terrain tyres offer a balance between these extremes with a tread pattern more suited to regular off road usage and are able to deal with tough situations like muddy and hilly terrain but are designed to be used on roads without excessive wear and fuel consumption. They are great all-rounders for any 4x4 owner who doesn't want to change their tyres between standard and recreational activities.
