All-Terrain, All-Weather, or Winter: Choosing Tires for Your Toyota Tundra

When you buy your Toyota Tundra, you will have to choose whether to keep the tires that come with it or swap them out for another pair. The tires that come with your vehicle will have been chosen based on how it is typically used. For example, you are more likely to find off-road or all-terrain tires on a Toyota Tundra TRD, which is designed for off-roading. That said, you can always swap your tires for a different set very easily. To choose the right tires, you need to know the most common types and what situations they are good for.

All-Season Tires

All-season or all-weather tires are designed to be used pretty much all year round. In addition, they are perfect for the average Louisiana driver. These tires give you good traction in the rain and a smooth, quiet ride. They also have a longer tread life and tend to resist cupping.

All-Terrain Tires

As the name implies, all-terrain tires are perfect if you plan to take your Toyota Tundra on unpaved roads or trails. They have excellent traction in dirt and other areas and tend to very well in snow, as well. They typically have good wear and are quiet. Depending on the conditions you plan on off-roading in, you may want to consider mud tires, which have excellent mud and off-road traction. The issues with these are that they are more expensive and tend to be loud.

Snow or Winter Tires

If you have to deal with snow, ice, or extremely cold temperatures, then you should seriously consider using winter or snow tires during the coldest months of the year. These are designed for handling snow and ice, so they will provide extra traction in those conditions. They should also work well in colder temperatures where traditional tires will begin to lose elasticity due to their material. Snow tires tend to still be quiet and have a low amount of tread wear.
