Top 3 Tips for Choosing Range Rover Off-Road Tires
There are a variety of different tire types to choose from, and even several different off-roading tire types that are meant for different activities, so depending on your driving habits and local terrain, the Range Rover tires recommended will vary. When you have a Range Rover for off-roading, ask yourself the following when looking for quality tires to handle your off-roading adventures:
- Where will you be driving your Range Rover most?
Are you driving your Range Rover around town, on commutes, and for general use around Mount Laurel or Hopewell? Is your Range Rover for off-roading adventures only? Or are you willing to change out your on-road tires for off-road tires before heading out on any off-roading excursions? There are Range Rover tires that are specifically for off-roading and not as good for pavement driving, and there are tires that are pavement-friendly but perhaps not as extreme when it comes to off-roading capabilities.
- What is the local climate like?
If you live in a hot place, chances are you won’t need Range Rover off-road tires that are specifically adept at handling snow and ice. If you plan to off-road in an extremely dry desert, you might not encounter much mud. The most common types of terrain ratings for off-roading tires are Sand, Ice, Snow, Mud, and Heavy Rock.
- What kind of off-roading do you like to do?
If you live in a temperate climate and encounter a lot of different types of terrain, find out where you plan to offroad and decide what type of off-roading you would like to do. Some Range Rover off-road tires might be better at rock crawling, while some might be better for mudding and other low-traction environments.
Our experts at the Land Rover Princeton service center can help you find the right Range Rover tires if you let them know your driving habits and preferences.
