In Australia, 4WDs are one of the quickest-growing markets for new vehicle purchases. With an abundance of sizes and usages, 4WDs really are one of the most versatile vehicle options one can explore.

When choosing the right tyres for your 4WD, ask yourself, ‘How often will I use my 4WD off-road?’ ‘How often will I use it on-road?’ The intended use of your vehicle is an important consideration when selecting the right tyres for your 4WD, as the tyres' features may vary. Some are better suited for off-road conditions such as dirt, rock, mud, and so on, whereas other types of tyres are designed predominantly for sealed roads.

In addition, there might be a variety of reasons why people upgrade their tyres. Some drivers, for example, may upgrade to high-performance tyres to improve handling, braking, and traction when driving in difficult conditions, such as heavy rain or snow. Other drivers might change them for purely aesthetic reasons, looking to improve the look of their vehicle without regard to performance.

Keeping this in mind, let’s go over three types of 4WD tyres and their applications: highway-terrain (HT), all-terrain (AT), and mud-terrain (MT).

Let’s dig deeper, shall we?

What 4WD tyres to buy at Integrity Tyres?

If you own a 4WD, ute, or SUV, at Integrity Tyres, we provide a wide variety of off-road tyres to suit your needs.

We can supply and fit a wide range of highway, all-terrain and mud-terrain tyres from leading manufacturers, such as Toyo, Nitto, Maxxis, BFGoodrich and Continental.

If you're looking to change your OE tyres over to an upgraded set, the first question to ask is 'how do I use my vehicle?' and think about what your expectations are.

There are various categories of 4WD and SUV tyres that perform well in various types of terrain. Unfortunately there are no perfect tyres, but choosing a tyre that suits a majority of your driving habits will get you the best results.

Highway terrain tyres (HT)

Highway-terrain (HT) tyres have been designed to be driven predominantly on sealed roads. As a result, if you intend to use your 4WD primarily on roads rather than off roads, these tyres are the best option for your driving needs.

The main features of HT tyres include good tread wear, a low load index, a high-speed rating, and good handling capabilities on wet bitumen. Thanks to these qualities, you will enjoy a comfortable and quiet ride.

Here is an example of one of the many HT tyres that we have in stock:

Toyo Open Country U/T

Toyo Open Country UT tyre

The Open Country U/T is a great highway-terrain tyre that offers safety, performance, and value to a wide range of everyday utes, 4x4s, and SUVs.

The Open Country U/T provides improved wet traction, fuel economy, and comfort without compromising mileage.

All-terrain tyres (AT)

All-terrain (AT) tyres can be used on both on-road and off-road surfaces. They are versatile tyres that provide a good balance between sealed and tough terrain.

These tyres have a deeper and more aggressive tread pattern than highway tyres, which allows them to provide additional grip for off-road driving.

The main features of AT tyres include deep and aggressive tread, a moderate load index, a moderate speed rating, and thick and strong sidewalls. You will enjoy good on-road comfort, increased off-road grip, and greater durability thanks to these features.

At {{tile}}, we provide a wide range of AT tyres, including the following:

Toyo Open Country A/T II

Toyo Open Country AT II

If you’re looking for superior on- and off-road performance, the Open Country A/T II tyre is an excellent choice for your 4WD. It offers increased tread life, excellent traction throughout the life of the tyre, and an aggressive tread appearance.

The Toyo Open Country A/T II tyre is available in a variety of sizes and delivers top-quality performance with affordable technology.

Mud terrain tyres (MT)

Mud terrain tyres have more aggressive treads than AT or HT tyres, which typically withstand Australia's toughest terrain. Because of their high rolling resistance, MT tyres are less effective on sealed roads, which leads to increased fuel consumption and road noise.

The main features of MT tyres include large and open tread patterns, a high load index, a low-speed rating, and durable construction. Thanks to these features, MT tyres perform well across a wide range of challenging surface conditions, including steep terrain, loose gravel, sand, and mud. They are also ideal for heavy off-roading duties, and offer high puncture resistance.

Find below an example of what Integrity Tyres have got in stock:

Toyo Open Country M/T

Toyo Open Country MT tyre

The Open Country Mud Terrain (M/T) provides exceptional traction in mud, soft terrain, and other off-road conditions. The aggressive block-type tread patterns extend to the buttress area, providing improved traction in deep ruts and when using low inflation pressures for rock climbing.

The casing construction uses three polyester plies and a robust belt package for resistance to tread punctures and other damage types.
