What Are Mud Terrain Tires?

MT tires are designed to improve off-road grip and traction for most SUVs, pickup trucks, and even some crossovers. These tires are a popular choice for backcountry, gravel, or mountain roads with loose, unsteady, or muddy surfaces. Whether you’re taking the back roads or just exploring the road less traveled, you’ll be grateful for that extra bit of control. Looking to increase ground clearance to help navigate off-road terrain? Be sure to check out our customizable lifting services to get the performance and look you want.

Still not sure what tire is best for your vehicle? Let us help you find the right tire for your crossover or SUV.

    While run-flat tires are built to stay rigid when deflated, they still take damage the farther you drive after a puncture. With the reinforced sidewalls on run-flat tires, it’s possible to drive upwards of 50 miles at no more than 50 MPH when deflated. However, driving far can damage the tire beyond repair.

    MT (mud-terrain) tires are designed for deep mud and soft ground, making them perfect for off-road adventures.

    Invented by the U.S. military, MT tires are built to tackle rough conditions thanks to tread patterns with huge spaces between the lugs and an open shoulder design for increased traction.

    Driving on paved roads or highways with a set of MT tires can decrease the life of your tires and result in less-than-ideal performance.

    MT tires can be a good choice if you plan to drive on dirt, mud, gravel, hardpack, rocks, or other extreme conditions.
