Jeep is known to be the king of four wheel drive vehicles. It has the capabilities of driving over the steepest rocks as well as battling the muddy and wet grounds without difficulty. This is all possible with the right tyres.
Off road tyres have specific features that make them the ultimate climbing tools. The treading is, of course, what gives the vehicle the grip to climb up on steep surfaces. The tread is also what allows liquid to pass through in case you are driving on a wet and muddy day.
The size of the tyre is everything. The bigger the tyre the more surface area it can cover and the more stable it is. Larger tyres also make driving a 4X4 vehicle much easier and more comfortable for the driver. Larger profiles are safer too. You won’t really find off road tyres with a narrow sidewall because they need to be tough and resilient. More volume within the tyre benefits the driver whilst climbing over rocks. Remember that you won’t always be facing a blunt surface but rather more protruding hills that will stab into the tyres. The air inside the tyre helps to protect the wheel which gives the car more bounce when driving over certain obstacles. It thus decreases the likelihood of a puncture due to the amount of pressure placed on them. Besides being useful to the whole outdoor experience, the large, wide, deep tread tyres also give the Jeep an aggressive modified look that is admired by many people.
