What Are ATV and UTV Tires?

What Are ATV and UTV Tires?

ATV (all-terrain vehicle or single-rider quad) and UTV (utility task vehicle or side-by-side) tires are designed to tackle rugged terrain such as dirt, mud, sand, riverbeds, as well as rocky hills and canyons. Some are even designed for street use. Because of the differences in the weight of these vehicles and the passenger demands, ATV and UTV tires are built differently and come in several tread options for different terrains.

ATV/UTV FAQs

    Look at the sidewall of your current ATV or UTV tires. There you’ll find a series of three numbers. The first is the height of your tire in inches. The next is the width. And finally, the third is the diameter of your wheel.


    The professionals at Les Schwab can help you decide on the right ATV and UTV tires for your next adventure. Some options include mud tires for muddy terrain, sand tires for desert and dunes, as well as all-terrain tires for nearly everything else.


    Similar to a set of all-season tires on a passenger car, all-terrain tires offer exceptional durability and traction in a variety of conditions. However, mud-terrain and sand terrain tires are the optimal choice for those types of terrain.


    Depending on where you drive, the type of terrain you cover, and the type of tires you’re using, a good set of ATV/UTV tires will last up to five years with ordinary use.

ATV/UTV tires and wheels may require special orders. See store for details.
