Mud tires are great for off-roading conditions, which can be anything from mud to uneven gravel or even sand dunes. If you are new to the off-road scene or regularly drive on unpaved roads, there are a few things you should know about mud tires and how they compare to all-terrain tires.
These tread patterns will typically continue over to the tire's sidewall. Mud tires will have stronger, reinforced sidewalls that handle heavier vehicles more efficiently and are also more durable against the force of sharp and rocky edges. This sidewall reinforcement helps assist your car with better traction in off-road conditions as well as resist against punctures, which can be more prevalent in off-road driving.
