All Terrain Tyres
All Terrain (AT) tyre tread patterns give stability when travelling over rocks, sand and dirt. Wet and dry conditions can be tackled with confidence and traction benefits in light snow are a feature when compared to highway patterns. All Terrain tyres represent a mixed use solution between trail blazing and daily drives on paved surfaces given the specifically designed patterns with strategically placed voids and gravel filtering. Improving sidewall technology is showing that these tyre patterns are designed to be capable for many situations encountered off road. Research and development from the major tyre manufacturers is aimed at constructing a tyre with strong sidewalls to gain puncture resistant properties. Cut resistant tread compounds are another element, built into these tyres to reduce the likelihood of an inconvenient puncture on your four wheel drive.
Highway Terrain (HT) tyres have less aggressive tread patterns and are more concerned with fuel economy, highway handling, ride comfort and reducing cabin noise.
Tyre care including rotations, alignment and inflation as covered within the myjax tyre maintenance plan is a particularly important consideration to gain optimal performance and life from your all terrain tyres. Inflation should follow the specifications on the vehicle's placard and allow for the weight of the load carried by your 4x4.
