UTV tires are about as varied as the machines themselves, so choosing a new set for your side-by-side can seem like quite the daunting task. Make it easier on yourself by shopping from our massive collection at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. With tires broken down by brand, size, terrain, ply rating, construction, and certification, our easy-to-use website makes it simple to narrow down the options until you find the tire you need.
The type of tire you need depends on the type of riding you’re doing. Are you rock crawling? Tearing through the dunes? Cruising through mountain trails? Wherever and however you ride, we have the tire for you.
An important element of UTV tires is their size. There are three numbers that indicate a UTV tire’s size. The first number represents height, the second represents width, and the third represents the rim diameter. There is room for customization in UTV tire size if you want your machine to be higher or wider, but it’s best to check your owner’s manual before making any drastic changes.
The tread pattern is another point to consider. Different types of tread handle better in different areas. For example, an aggressive tread pattern with deep lugs can bite loose terrain and keep you moving faster. The height and width and spacing of the lugs, as well as the specific design, are carefully developed to optimize the performance of UTV in varying terrains. Loose terrain like mud, snow, and sand respond well to deep, paddle-type lugs, while many tires designed for rocky terrain use a crisscross or zig-zag pattern to maximize grip. Look for the tread you think could handle the terrain you’re going to be riding on.
UTV tires also come in different ply ratings. Ply ratings indicate the tire’s strength – the higher the ply rating, the stronger the tire. Tires will come in 4-ply, 6-ply, 8-ply, and 10-ply ratings. UTVS typically require heavier ply tires as the machines are considerably heavier than ATVs, so a good rule to follow is: the more rigorous you’re riding, the higher ply your tire should be.
You will also want to be aware of the tire’s construction. Some side-by-side tires use a radial construction, others use a bias construction. The difference beteween the two is how the cords are laid inside the tire. In radial UTV tires, the cords are laid at a 90° angle, making the tires stiffer and more durable. Most DOT certified UTV tires are going to feature a radial construction as they are better suited for the road. Bias UTV tires are made from cords laying at 30° and 60° angles. This makes the tires more flexible for harder, rockier terrains, but also allows them to break down faster.

Just purchased my second set of these, first set wore great almost 3 years. Bought my second set and had a small stick go right through the side wall. I had approximately 20 miles on them when this happened. I was hoping that Rocky MTN would warrant the tire but they said NO its a trail hazard that caused this. I thought with the new Aramid design the side walls would be tougher. Pretty disappointed to have this happen on a brand new tire.Read All Reviews

Awesome tire for the money. I put these front and rear on my DRZ400S. Replaced kenda k270's. Really good traction off road and they feel good in pavement also. I ride single track, dirt roads and pavement. They are really squirrelly at first so give them a hundred or so miles to break in. I run about 10 to 15 psi. More than that and they are squirrelly on hard pack. Great rear tire traction in soft sand. Only have a few hundred miles so far so i don't know about longevity but so far they look good.Read All Reviews

Wanted to try it out , and put it through its paces partially out of its element. Used it brand new in a desert race the course had a wide variety of terrain so I got a good test on where it excels and not so much. On hard pack, rocky climbs, wet slippery rocks, and damp soil the tire performs well. In the loose dry dirt, moon dust and deeper sand it struggles for traction. Over all I'm impressed with the tire especially for the priceRead All Reviews

There is no doubt that the Bridgestone T31 is the best value for money Sport touring tire on the market. When you consider that a front is good for 4,200 miles and a rear for 2,400 miles paying upwards of double for no extra mileage makes no sense. The premium brands give no more mileage. The rideability of the Bridgestone is excellent and I never feel I made a bad decision. Wet gripe maybe less but, slow down, it is the right solution.Read All Reviews
