UTV Tires

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.

    • Tusk Recon Hybrid™ Tire

      Tusk Recon Hybrid™ Tire

      Jason in TN

      Steep, damp woods . . . Meh

      I ride TN rocks, roots, loan and leaves. Normally run an MT16. The Recon is probably better for dry conditions. Knobs are soft but nowhere near at tall as MT16. Underwhelmed with braking and loamy leaves. 3 rides and it's coming off. We ride a lot of steep woods.

      Best rear tire I have tried..

      This tire is great in sand, hard pack dirt, it doesn't slide out at all when at high speed corners.

    • Tusk Terrabite® Radial Tire

      Tusk Terrabite® Radial Tire

      Troy in MI

      Good first impression

      I haven't had the chance to ride much, but my first impression is that they will be a major upgrade from the stock tires. They seem to handle well on the surfaces that I travel and don't seem to turf the yard as much. As others have said, they are smaller than advertised. It isn't a big concern for me, but the tire sizes should be as advertised. I give 4 stars for this reason.

      STI X Comp ATR Radial Tire

      Kurt in NV

      STI X Comp are Awesome Tires!

      I really like the the squared off tread and the fact that they are 10ply tires.... only caution I have is that they are stiff. I would highly recommend beadlocks and no more than 10 - 12 PSI for a UTV.
