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.

      2k miles on the rear Conti for the ST and I believe the side wall is to soft for the weight. Not a stable ride at Hwy speed. Good grip.

      Great value and you get more than your monies worth...

      I’ve purchased almost 10 sets of these tires. I ride pure dual sport, been all over the country and these tires have not let me down yet. The life is fairly short if you ride on the road but they hook up well on road and I’ve never felt like I didn’t have traction. Off-road they can be squirrelly in the sand and deep mud. Almost have to let the air out completely. Dry conditions and light mud they are best.

    • Continental TKC70 Dual Sport Rear Motorcycle Tire

      Continental TKC70 Dual Sport Rear Motorcycle Tire

      Ed in MT

      Tread patern looks good.

      I am not able to rate the tread life, wet traction, grip traction at this time due to the fact that I only have 30 miles on the tire. I have been using Shinko 505sand only get about 4000 miles on the rear. I hope that this tire will get around 7000 to 8000 to justify the extra cost.
