Tips That Save Your Off-Road Tires From Premature Wear

Keep Up With Tire Balancing & Rotations

Like regular tires, off-road tires require balancing and rotations to wear evenly and give you the maximum lifespan. If your vehicle doesn't have a full-time four-wheel-drive drivetrain, it will affect the wear of the driving tires. This issue can be eliminated by performing regular interval balancing and rotations.

Know Your Tires Limitations

When you go off-road, know the type of off-road tire that your vehicle has and only use it for that purpose to avoid excessive wear that's caused by improper use. Also, it's a good idea to know the speed and load ratings and don't exceed those.

Don't Spin Your Tires

As you drive on loose terrains, avoid accelerating or braking aggressively as it can spin the tires and create friction that leads to tire wear.

Do Your Best To Avoid Getting Stuck

Damage to your tires can happen when you get stuck, so avoid rocks since they can puncture the tire or getting your tire to debead off the rim.

Air Down Tire Pressure Correctly

When driving on Off-Road Trails, lowering your tire pressure can help considerably to get you over mud, snow, and sand, but once you return to pavement, you will want to air your tires back up to avoid excessive and uneven wear to them.
