Read on to find out the different vehicles types we fit to.
It's estimated that there are currently over 40 million cars on the UK roads, with everything from Smart cars and hybrids to the largest of performance vehicles. We fit to all makes and models, and offer a vast array of tyres to meet every driving need, from fuel efficiency, seasonal performance, improved grip and of course budgetary needs. Stocking the best premium brands, as well as tried and tested budget ranges, TyresOnTheDrive has you covered. Find out more about the types of tyres we supply and fit.
4x4s are much larger than standard cars, and they're designed to drive on a multitude of terrains so require tyres to suit. 4x4 tyres are normally bigger than standard sets, with sizes of 18” and 19” representing the norm. They’re also specially designed to travel at higher speeds, while off-road terrains such as dirt, dust and sand are also taken into consideration.
The main difference between 4x4 tyres and regular sets is in the tread. 4x4 tyres come with a tread that's both widely spaced and deeper than most, which enables them to tackle rougher terrains much more easily. As the tread fills up with dirt or dust, the tyre's wider surface area should provide enough grip to keep you from getting stuck. They're also designed with engine distribution in mind, and have tougher sidewalls to help improve your vehicle's ability to perform under a heavy load.
We have a huge choice of tyres for four wheel drives, including:
- Mud-terrain (MT) – for the off-road enthusiast. They perform well on mud, rocks, gravel and snow
- All-terrain (AT) – offer relatively good performance on-road and also off-road
- Original Equipment (OE) – those fitted by the manufacturer. They are usually designed for limited off-road capacity, with 80:20 on-road/off-road use. They will be matched with the vehicle for noise, comfort and grip for those drivers who spend most of their time on-road
- High performance – many 4x4s and SUVs are high performance vehicles that require high performing tyres. These offer good grip in all weather conditions on-road but don’t perform well off-road
