Best Off-Road Tires for Pickup Trucks, Crossovers and SUVs
Off-road tires (sometimes referred to as mud tires) are engineered to be driven in gravel, sand, mud and sometimes even in snow. Although they can be used on regular roads, this type of tire does not offer as much traction on the streets as they do in the trails. Moreover, they are not as quiet and fuel efficient as touring tires. Off-road tires are equipped with an aggressive tread pattern with deep grooves and large blocks. They are perfect for drivers who enjoy taking a trip off the beaten paths. To see which tires made it to the top, check out our Ratings section.
