3 Things to Consider Before Buying ATV Tires, Kalispell, Montana

Your ATV allows you to explore uncharted areas with speed and ease. Whether you rely on your vehicle for work or entertainment, you want to equip it with the best ATV tires possible. The residents of Kalispell, MT, rely on M & C Tire for a wide array of commercial, industrial, and ATV tires. Below, their experts explain three things you should consider.

3 Things to Think About Before Purchasing ATV Tires

1. Tread

The tread on ATV tires determines how well your vehicle grips the surfaces you drive on. Purchase tires with treads that are well-suited for the terrain you usually drive over. If you’re constantly riding through mud, then you’ll want to get specialized tires that are thicker with a deep tread to flush out dirt. If you spend more time on sand, look for wheels with a raised tread on the center of the tire to give you optimal traction. If you stick to the trails, then all-terrain tires are best.

ATV tires2. Weight

If you’re replacing your current tires, then match the weight as closely as possible to the previous ones and follow the manufacturer’s specifications for the optimal weight. If the tires are too heavy, they put unnecessary stress on the suspension, engine, and other internal parts. You want to be able to ride over rough terrain without fear of damaging your vehicle. If you have an ATV with a small engine, be particularly wary of choosing overweight tires, since they can put stress on the engine and prevent the vehicle from turning properly.

3. Price

The price of each tire will vary based on the type and brand. If you have a limited budget, you can narrow your options based on price range. Once you’ve selected a brand within your budget, then you can determine the type of tires to get, such as mud or all-terrain options.
