Hey yall I'm new to the offroading scene and I have some questions..

I'm looking to upgrade from my stock tire to a more aggressive tire.

I need a tire that can perform well in mud and sand, but doesn't wear down too too fast..

Any suggestions?


I searched but I couldn't find anything...

do you want an a/t or an m/t?

do you ride trails with rocks that could puncture a tire without thick sidewalls?

do you have an idea of what size you want (width? height?)


all questions (along with others) you should consider when searching, otherwise you'll get everyone suggesting different tires and you'll be no farther along in your decision.

First off, welcome to the site!

Hopefully I won't sound too much like a p#$k, but, the search feature is an awesome function, but sometimes you have to try different words or phrases to get the desired results. Tire recommendations have been discussed a bazillion times on this site. What I did was type in a search for tires in the suspension tire and wheel forum and recieved 306 topics. Almost half of those discuss tires. My suggestion is to read through those threads to get a general idea of what tires are out there and which ones are the most popular. Then if you have any specific questions, by all means post them here.

I too am trying to decide on what tires to upgrade to, and I've read just about every post on this site concerning tires...and I still haven't decided.

Good luck!

Rob

Ok, ok, I'll admit.. I could've spent a little longer looking :evil4:

The trails I'd go on would be mostly mud/dirt/clay.

I wasn't sure if I should get all terrains or mud terrain.

To the search I go!

First things first, WELCOME to our wonderful sight. :) Here, try doing the search a little better and longer, the threads are out there. This will be enough to get you started. Read, apply to your needs, style preferance, then narrow your search. :) Hope this helps you for the start.
