The Rise of Off-Road Driving

4x4 tyres have grown in popularity thanks to next-generation vehicles such as the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover Sport, Mercedes ML, Volvo XC90, Volkswagen Touareg, and the BMW X3 and BMW X5.

These are all high-performance vehicles which require durable tyres which deliver lots of grip, whilst being able to withstand harsher road surfaces such as mud and gravel.

As off-roading has become increasingly popular, many tyre manufacturers have created increasingly superior tyre treads. With each new generation of tyre improving on the last, we're now in a golden era of off-road driving.

Types of 4x4 Tyres

Most tyre manufacturers produce a range of 4x4 tyres. These include off-road, all-terrain, mud and snow (M+S), and high-performance ranges. If you're planning on going off-roading, however, do bear in mind the type of tyre you'll need for your circumstances.

High-Performance: This premium range is designed primarily for use on road opposed to off-road. With many high-performance 4x4s capable of speeds in excess of 150 mph, these tyres provide excellent traction and stability whilst dealing with the increased weight of the vehicle and extra load on the tyres.

Run-Flat: These are designed to keep your vehicle under control in the event of pressure loss to your tyres whether it be a puncture or a complete tyre failure - often referred to as a 'blow out'.

The tyres have a reinforced sidewall capable of supporting the weight of the 4x4 with zero air pressure. This extra strength helps to maintain control of the vehicle following a sudden loss of air. After this, you can drive to a garage or get a call out for a fitting service to get a suitable replacement. 

Winter: This seasonal variety is just as beneficial to a 4x4 vehicle as a standard car. With the majority of these vehicles being produced on tyres designed primarily for on-road use, come winter time when temperature drop below 7°C, the performance from the tyres gets less as the rubber stiffens.

This ultimately means that if your 4x4 tyres can't grip, it doesn't matter whether you have four or six wheel drive, you'll struggle to get moving. Consequently, the winter variety work best at temperatures below 7°C and are designed to provide traction on snow, ice, and mud.

All Terrain: All-terrain tyres are generally designed as 50% on-road and 50% off-road. These provide the perfect option for owners who like to make the most of their 4x4 as they provide decent levels of grip on the road whilst maintaining decent performance off-road.
