Off road pickup truck

Pickup trucks are a multi-purpose vehicle. Consumers pay great attention to appearance, interior, configuration, power and other aspects during the purchase process, trying to find products that best meet their own car habits and multi-dimensional car environment. However, many consumers do not pay much attention to vehicle tires, either they have never changed tires from beginning to end, or they are very fascinated by imported all-terrain tires. In fact, the type of tire is very important for pickup trucks. Different types of tires are suitable for different scenarios and have different impacts on driving comfort, performance, and fuel economy. It is very important to choose tires that suit your applicable scenarios.

 

HT road tires

HT road tires are the most common tires in daily life, and the full name is Highway-terrain. HT tires are divided into wear-resistant tires, silent tires (family cars), sports tires (high-horsepower rear-wheel drive/four-wheel drive vehicles), single-guided tires (mid-to-high-end performance cars) and balanced tires. HT tires are characterized by fine tread patterns and soft sidewalls, which can provide good comfort, quietness and fuel economy. They are suitable for use on paved roads and can also meet certain mild off-road needs. Most domestic pickups leave the factory It is basically equipped with ordinary wear-resistant tires.

For car owners whose daily use environment is mainly industrial and commercial transportation and family transportation, HT tires can basically meet all needs, and are comfortable, quiet and fuel-efficient. However, in order to save costs and control fuel consumption, some original factory tires will choose low-cost low-quality HT tires. If consumers have the spare capacity, it is best to compare and replace four HT tires with better quality after buying a pickup. For consumers who have a certain need for long-distance travel and will cross non-paved roads, they need to determine the tire type according to the frequency of use and the complexity of the road conditions. HT tires can generally cope with such road conditions, but AT tires are a better choice.

 

AT All Terrain Tires

AT all-terrain tires are one of the most common tire replacement options for pickup truck users and off-road enthusiasts. The full name is All-Terrain. As the name implies, it is a tire that can handle all terrains. There are also specific subdivisions for different scenarios such as off-roading. Compared with HT tires, AT tires have rougher tread patterns, larger tread gaps, and harder tire wall materials, which effectively compensate for the performance of road tires on gravel and muddy roads. However, the high passability of AT is based on the decline of road performance. The rough tread pattern will increase tire noise and reduce road comfort, and at the same time, the fuel consumption of the vehicle will also increase.

If your pickup truck usually travels, and occasionally goes out for self-driving or cross-country, it is a good choice to give up HT tires and replace it with a set of high-quality AT tires. The advantage of AT tires is that they can be used for both off-road and normal transportation. It is the most common choice of off-road tires. Even if your car does not have such strong mechanical devices and electronic assistance, having a set of AT tires will also enhance off-road performance to a certain extent. The most common AT tires include BFGoodrich KO2, Cooper AT3, General AT5, etc. The effects that can be provided vary according to the price, and the owner needs to do what he can according to the economic conditions.

 

MT mud tires

MT mud-terrain tires are generally only used by off-road enthusiasts and workers on special roads. They are more advanced off-road options. The full name is Mud-terrain. Compared with HT tires, MT tires are two completely opposite tires. The sidewall is very hard, and the tread texture distance is quite exaggerated, which is convenient for slow mud discharge or high speed mud removal when driving on muddy ground. It is easy to increase the adhesion, and it can also provide strong adhesion when encountering uneven rocky roads. It can be regarded as a tire with abnormal performance.

However, while MT tires have strong off-road performance, their road performance has dropped to the lowest point. Because the tread texture is too exaggerated, the contact area between the MT tire and the road surface is obviously insufficient, resulting in considerable tire noise. When the vehicle speed is lower than 10km/h, the vibration of the tire teeth will be felt. At the same time, the braking and steering performance of MT tires is also very weak, and it is easier to lose control when driving on paved roads in rainy weather, and MT tires have almost no effect on sandy ground, which will increase the chance of getting stuck on the contrary. Choosing MT tires means that the car owner has already prepared to be an off-road enthusiast, and there must be another commuter car at home as a daily car.

 

ST snow tire

ST snow tires are designed for ice and snow weather, the full name is Snow -terrain. The general definition of snow tires in the world is tires suitable for use when the temperature is below 7°C. According to the road conditions, they are divided into three types: serrated tires, snow tires and stud tires. Among them, stud tires will damage the road surface. , so it is not allowed to be used on paved roads. ST tires are different from ordinary single-directional tires. They have asymmetrical directional tread patterns. Snow tires have more grooves. The higher the proportion of grooves on the tire surface, the better the drainage. In more than 1000, there are about 200 ordinary tires.

From the material point of view, ST tires mainly use some special formulas, such as the formulated silica mixture rubber formula, which can be in closer contact with smooth ice surfaces, thereby generating greater friction than all-season tires, making the vehicle ride on smooth ice surfaces The handling and safety are greatly improved, and the snow tires will still maintain a soft texture under low temperature conditions. However, due to the rich tread patterns and large grooves of snow tires, the comfort of the vehicle will be greatly reduced, and the fuel consumption will be significantly improved compared with ordinary all-season tires. If your car environment has been in an area where the temperature is below 7°C for a long time, and you often need to pass slippery roads and steep slopes, changing to suitable snow tires can greatly reduce the impact of tire slippage.

 

EXT extreme terrain tires

EXT extreme terrain tires are tires designed for various extreme environments. The full name is Extreme-terrain. The most representative of them is the rainforest tire, which is commonly known as the centipede tire (the tread looks like a huge centipede). This type of tire generally only appears in off-road rally events with a lot of muddy and dense forest stages, which can help vehicles get out of trouble quickly, but the road performance is basically zero. Usually we can see EXT extreme terrain tires on ATV/UTV and other agricultural machinery. Few people choose this kind of heavy-mouthed and impractical tires for family cars. If you meet people who use mud tires, Then quickly make friends with him, he must be a master of off-road all the year round, this kind of tire is difficult to drive normally on the road.
