Top 20 SUV Tires

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Tires for off-road vehicles have a number of fundamental differences from their counterparts for passenger cars. In addition to overall dimensions, such as diameter and width, they are subject to a deeper and larger cut of the tread, allowing them to cover several natural traffic zones at once: classic asphalt roads and off-road.

The market segment has long stepped over the bar in more than 200 manufacturing companies: some of them, for their regalia and world fame, are represented in almost every store, while others use only local recognition, content with a limited circle of customers. After reviewing the range of products presented, the editors of the magazine have prepared for you a rating of the 20 best tires for SUVs, divided into 5 main categories. The final list of nominees was built on the basis of ratings from users, as well as the conclusions of an expert jury from among the professionals of the auto industry.

The best summer tires for SUVs

MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 SUV

SUV tire rating: 5.0

MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 SUV

The Pilot Sport 4 SUV series is a favorite among all fans of fast races on tracks and specially prepared tracks, so you shouldn't be surprised at Michelin's first place in the ranking. Unlike competitors, this tire is asymmetrical, which is explained by the desire of the German company to make the most responsive model for operation in any weather. So, the outer tread block is made for convincing control of the car in dry weather, while the inner one prevails in case of precipitation and wet roads.

Official track tests have shown that the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV's braking distance is about 1 meter shorter than the previous generation tire – according to the developers, this is the result of painstaking work and redesigning the tread pattern from scratch. The main advantage of the model over the others was the active resistance to lateral rolling, as well as axle drift during sharp maneuvering. Despite the high cost, the Pilot Sport 4 SUV is the perfect choice for those who love total control and handling, as well as high-speed races of the amateur and professional level.

Advantages

  • asymmetrical tread pattern, the outer and inner parts of which are responsible for control on dry and wet tracks, respectively;
  • shortened braking distance;
  • excellent grip (due to increased contact patch);
  • low susceptibility to wear;
  • stability when maneuvering.

disadvantages

  • high price.

Toyo Proxes STIII

SUV tire rating: 4.9

Toyo Proxes STIII

Unlike the Yokohama parada spec-x , Toyo Proxes STIII tires have been designed specifically for sporty SUVs with high driving dynamics and rarely off-road driving. Hence follows the inability to ride on the ground, inherent in all models of this class, at the mercy of excellent grip and stability on asphalt.

The central part of the tread of the Toyo Proxes STIII is made in the form of cone-shaped and arrow-shaped blocks, which have a positive effect on the vehicle's directional stability, and are also responsible for grip on a wet track. A series of 3D Multiwave sipes and side block tilt help reduce uneven wear by limiting tread displacement and deformation during braking and fast acceleration. All this contributes to both fuel economy (4.1% relative to the previous iteration of Proxes), and an increase in the permissible speed limit, and a decrease in driving noise (although this indicator received an average user rating of 3 points out of 5).

Advantages

  • extremely stable behavior on the track;
  • cutting of lamellas and bevel of side blocks are focused on minimizing deformations and uneven wear;
  • high degree of efficiency;
  • low noise level when driving (excellent balance of softness / hardness of rubber).

disadvantages

  • weak off-road conditions.

Yokohama parada spec-x

SUV tire rating: 4.8

Yokohama parada spec-x

Sufficiently expensive tires of a sports-utilitarian class, equally comfortable both off-road and on city roads. Its main advantage is resistance to wear: periodic rolling on gravel and natural surfaces, combined with high-speed driving on asphalt, practically does not harm the tread, making it possible to skate up to 4-5 seasons without any complaints.

Yokohama Parada Spec-X has a unique, very atypical pattern – one concentric groove in the center and deep curved sipes, designed to instantly remove slurry and water from under the wheel contact zone with the road. The price, when compared with other representatives of the class, is slightly above average, but with a painstaking search for a distributor, you can knock off up to 1000 rubles from each wheel. Therefore, the only drawback of the model is an extremely detrimental effect on fuel consumption when installing a non-recommended configuration in height / width (on spacers, etc.). Also, despite the good stability indicators on the road, we would not recommend accelerating more than 150 kilometers per hour.

Advantages

  • extremely efficient sipes and grooves on the tread for reliable grip on the asphalt road;
  • differs in tenacity on the ground;
  • very wear-resistant;
  • optimal balance of price and quality.

disadvantages

  • a large mass can significantly increase fuel consumption, especially when the car is equipped with non-standard rubber.

Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV

Rating SUV tire: 4.7

Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV

The Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV rating is due to improved driving safety parameters, which translate into reduced braking distances, as well as excellent traction in all weather conditions. The unique system of mirrored arrangement of sipes in combination with four grooves for water and dirt escape allows to provide an optimal contact patch of rubber with the road as soon as possible.

Despite the excellent grip performance, the Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV offers higher rolling resistance, which slightly offset the savings in consumption. However, the savings are still present, albeit at the level of 1.4% relative to the old comparison samples of the company. It is also noteworthy that Continental has seriously attended to the problem of eliminating defects that arise during the operation of rubber. For this purpose, in the production of this tire model, the ContiSeal technology was used – a means of sealing the tread in case of a cut or puncture. In the event of a wheel penetration, the viscous base inside will create an elastic layer that prevents air from escaping when driving at a certain speed (60 km / h). This is enough to get to the nearest service point and eliminate the annoying malfunction.

Advantages

  • very high safety standards;
  • excellent grip on asphalt in all weather conditions;
  • ContiSeal technology;
  • 1.4% efficiency compared to previous Continental tires.

disadvantages

  • high price for the updated series.

Bridgestone Alenza 001

SUV tire rating: 4.6

Bridgestone Alenza 001

The replacement tire for the Dueler H / P Sport, which redefined SUV comfort on urban trails. The eminent predecessor was a very strong market player, but he could not stand out in any specific characteristics – the success was due to an exclusively single set of parameters. But Alenza 001, on the contrary, can be compared by individual indicators. So, the overwhelming majority (about 85%) of users actually felt the comfort of the model: the reason for this lies in the four longitudinal grooves with small regular sipes. The contact patch with the road remains effective, and excess moisture is regularly removed to the outside.

According to the test results, the Bridgestone Alenza 001 also contributed to a more economical fuel consumption than the previous iteration of SUV rubber – by about 2.9%. This is not much, but in the long run it can save several thousand rubles. The durability has increased by 11% and the wet grip class has grown to the 'A' mark.

Advantages

  • increased wear resistance of rubber;
  • 3D 'M' shaped sipes reduce rubber deformation;
  • rubber composition balanced in terms of softness;
  • increased efficiency (2.9% compared to Dueler).

disadvantages

  • the value that has increased with the improvements.

The best dirt tires for SUVs

BFGoodrich All-Terrain T / A KO2

SUV tire rating: 5.0

BFGoodrich All-Terrain T / A KO2

A classic set of tires for severe off-road conditions, the only drawback of which is the high price. The BFGoodrich All-Terrain T / A KO2 is the trendsetter for powerful lateral reinforcement made from a compound that protects the rubber from punctures on rough terrain, and also allows you to stay in a rut and increase grip to move on it.

In addition to the powerful rubber, you can add the versatility that overtook the series in the transition to version 2: excellent retention on the track with minimal deviations from the course and low noise level – this is definitely not expected from off-road tires. Yes, the level of fuel consumption is slightly limp (increases by an average of 0.5 liters), but for such productive 'rollers' this is nothing more than a permissible trifle.

Advantages

  • extremely resistant to wear and tear;
  • reinforced side section, practically impervious to puncture or cuts off-road;
  • high off-road conditions, but at the same time acceptable indicators of use on the highway;
  • moderately soft rubber composition, excluding tires 'solidification' during operation in frost;
  • up to 100 thousand kilometers of possible mileage on one set.

disadvantages

  • high cost of the kit;
  • large mass of one wheel (24 kilograms for config 265/70 R17).

HANKOOK TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03

SUV tire rating: 4.9

HANKOOK TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03

The second line of the rating goes to TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03 tires from Hankook. Its main feature is versatility, albeit at the expense of cross-country ability on total off-road. However, there is also a predisposition to this, and during etching it is capable of crawling where access to less 'prepared' competitors is closed.

Noise when driving on asphalt, as such, is not observed – if everything is fine with the insulation component in the cabin, then you will not hear anything annoying. Due to the sufficiently high blocks and deep tread, the car is not subject to aquaplaning: comfort and controllability during high-speed movement on a wet track are provided. It kneads dirt at a stock pressure (1.4-1.8 atmospheres) well, but it manifests itself much better when bleeding to 0.9 atmospheres. With an operating mode of 50/50 (asphalt / off-road) and timely replacement closer to the winter season, Hankook TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03 covers approximately 70-80 thousand kilometers. A good indicator for its price, as well as the general selection of characteristics.

Advantages

  • acceptable level of cost;
  • versatility – suitable both for driving on asphalt roads and off-road;
  • low noise level (mainly when braking and cornering);
  • zero aquaplaning;
  • long-term operation – up to 70-80 thousand kilometers on one set.

disadvantages

  • rubber is prone to uneven wear.

COMFORSER CF3000

SUV tire rating: 4.8

COMFORSER CF3000

A set of fairly cheap mud tires, which is often and successfully used on SUVs among domestic motorists. It has, perhaps, the most pronounced balance of price and quality: the whole comparison will be based on the appeal to the 'folk' Forward Safari. So, one of the key advantages is the soft composition of the rubber compound: even at -30 degrees Celsius, elasticity is not lost, which allows you to do without cracking and kinking throughout the whole year. They are quieter, which makes them more comfortable to use even when driving on city roads.

Among other things, COMFORSER CF3000 copes excellently with off-road conditions, and if necessary, a more confident grip is etched in 0.7 atmospheres without any negative consequences. Among the shortcomings of the kit, one can single out poor wear resistance: the same Safari, by sensations, have a higher margin of safety in the long term. There are also complaints about keeping the car on a straight line and out of a high rut. However, with the proper level of driving, everything is compensated by skill, and the low purchase price is perfectly combined with the indicated advantages.

Advantages

  • low cost;
  • good ergonomics (low noise level);
  • soft and elastic rubber that does not degrade when exposed to low temperatures;
  • perfectly etched in 0.7 atmospheres.

disadvantages

  • poor retention of the car from side drifts;
  • low wear resistance.

Forward Safari 540

Rating SUV tire: 4.7

Forward Safari 540

Let's give the fourth line of the rating to the Safari 540 'people's' rubber, which is a cheap analogue of the very good BFG Mud Terrain KM1 kit. But its advantages include not only the price parameter: the presence of lateral reinforcement with a deep tread for digging in mud is also worthy of mention. It holds the road well, does not undergo side drift, but at the same time makes a lot of noise when driving on asphalt.

In essence, the problems with noise rest on the stiffness of the rubber, from which the durability parameters also “suffer” when the kit is changed to a winter one later. Already at -20 degrees Celsius, a loss of control begins to be felt on the steering wheel, as the rubber stakes, and after several such races it begins to 'creep'. But the tread retains its depth for a long time, which can also be attributed to the pluses. Thus, for every significant drawback there is a significant merit, and the factor of popular preference speaks unambiguously in favor of Safari.

Advantages

  • very low price;
  • high degree of wear resistance;
  • deep tread, suitable for driving on strong off-road;
  • the presence of lateral reinforcement;
  • good road and track retention as well as resistance to side drifts.

disadvantages

  • very hard rubber;
  • high noise level when driving on asphalt;
  • under the influence of low temperatures, it extremely quickly loses its already low elasticity.

The best winter studless tires for SUVs

Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV

SUV tire rating: 5.0

Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV

In fact, the Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV is a typical friction tire, not without its drawbacks when it comes to taxiing on bare ice or packed snow. But at the same time, she is actively trying to neutralize the side effect of the absence of studs by interacting with the standard electronic systems of modern cars, which help both stabilize the SUV on the track, and add control in small drifts. This model is extremely close in spirit to the Geolandar I / T-S G073 from Yokohama, but is made with purely Finnish acumen with reference to closer weather conditions.

Basically, the characteristics of both tires are similar: they are light, and economical, and minimal aquaplaning. However, the advantage of the Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV lies in the more pronounced lateral reinforcement, which provides the necessary grip, for example, when you need to get out of an icy rut. In addition, the risk of accidental side cutting or puncture of the wheel is minimized, which positively affects the service life. The only caveat is the high price, but lovers of handling and quality must put up with it.

Advantages

  • similar to the advantages of Yokohama Geolandar I / T-S G073 …;
  • … + Reinforced sidewall, which provides grip and protection against wheel damage at the most critical points.

disadvantages

  • expensive rubber kit.

Yokohama Geolandar I / T-S G073

SUV tire rating: 4.9

Yokohama Geolandar I / T-S G073

One of the most durable tires on the world market, the service life of which (according to user reviews) can be up to 10 seasons. Geolandar I / T-S G073 is characterized by a very winning tread pattern, showing excellent results both in terms of removing excess from under the wheel to maintain excellent grip, and in cross-country ability of snow-covered areas (it paddles and crushes loose snow extremely well). The velcro is very soft, quiet and economical due to its lightness – the factory design and the sensibility of Japanese engineers are reflected. In addition, excellent balancing stands out – at the level of Blizzak DM-V2.

But, no matter how weighty the advantages were, there were also some disadvantages. The fact is that, like all Velcro, the Yokohama Geolandar I / T-S G073 rolls pretty well on the ice, but the real trouble happens with the braking distance. There are also questions about the grip, because in a knurled snow or ice rut, the rubber simply refuses to leave. But all this can be attributed to the costs of studless tires, so we will not spoil the reputation of the excellent Japanese 'stickies'.

Advantages

  • very quiet and soft, does not freeze even in severe frost;
  • economical due to lightness;
  • extremely durable subject to seasonal changes;
  • good grip on ice and rolled snow;
  • zero aquaplaning.

disadvantages

  • high price for a set;
  • long braking distance on ice.

Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

SUV tire rating: 4.8

Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

The Blizzak DM-V2 is a case where nominally city tires feel perfect in a completely different environment. Its ideal is the broken and uneven dirt tracks inherent in small towns and suburban areas, since only in such an environment they are regularly cleared of ice porridge and loose snow. Thanks to the improved formula, this rubber copes well with riding in low temperatures, completely freezing at -20 degrees Celsius. This is her element, but one has only to roll back into the heat, as the characteristics of aquaplaning and poor water drainage from the contact zone force the driver to grab onto the steering wheel and prevent convulsive movements to the sides.

Yes, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 was created with all comfort requirements in mind, and this cannot be taken away from it – the car handles excellently in subzero temperatures, and the rubber produces extremely little noise. The list of advantages is supplemented by the excellent factory balancing of each individual tire, as well as the short stopping distance of each set.

Advantages

  • works great on loose snow and on uneven road sections;
  • excellent performance in cold weather (from -5 to -30 degrees Celsius);
  • low noise level;
  • balancing close to ideal;
  • short braking distance.

disadvantages

  • extremely unpredictable behavior on packed snow and ice;
  • low operating conditions in warm weather.

Best winter studded tires for SUVs

MICHELIN X-Ice North 4

SUV tire rating: 5.0

MICHELIN X-Ice North 4

Despite the second place in the tests from Motor magazine, MICHELIN X-Ice North 4 leaves more vivid subjective impressions, and it has a few more advantages in relation to the Finnish rival. The quite standard swept tread design – from the edges to the center – has been complemented by a double portion of studs, which have undergone many changes since the introduction of X-Ice North 3. The contact area with ice has increased, in line with the reliability indicators, which is why braking, and rolling on the ice surface turned out to be much more manageable. In some incomprehensible way, they managed to drive noise into the area of ​​acceptable values, creating ideal comfortable driving conditions.

But MICHELIN engineers went further, reworking the composition of the already good rubber. The introduction of a portion of new elastomers gave X-Ice North 4 more softness and a pronounced manifestation of elastic deformation to minimize uneven rubber wear through tears and friction. The freezing point dropped to -65 degrees Celsius, and the durability increased by several more points. As well as the price, which has become the only serious obstacle on the way to making a purchase.

Advantages

  • improved formula of tire grip on ice surfaces;
  • excellent performance under various road conditions: from snow slurry to dry asphalt;
  • low noise level;
  • the freezing point of rubber was -65 degrees Celsius.

disadvantages

  • high price.

Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV

SUV tire rating: 4.9

Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV

The tire with the highest score in an official test authorized by the Norwegian Automobile Federation (Motor magazine) – 95.9 out of 100. As the experts explained, the minimum gap (two tenths of the X-Ice North) is associated with more effective braking and handling on ice. But the downside was predictably noisy – with this component the Finns did not make it to the optimum. Still, the number of studs on the tire is much higher than on the designated competitor.

In fact, apart from the high noise level in Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV, there is nothing to highlight with a minus sign – according to users, both lateral stability and cross-country performance are excellent. The standard 'herringbone' in the central part actively removes snow and porridge from the contact area of ​​the tire with the road, and the side surfaces act as support. Finnish rubber is expectedly expensive, but, subscribing to every word of the experts, we will put it higher GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice Arctic SUV.

Advantages

  • very good rolling control on open ice;
  • better braking performance on snowy asphalt;
  • serviceable off-road capability with deep snow;
  • durability of the kit;
  • high quality rubber.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • noisy tires due to the abundance of spikes.

GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice Arctic SUV

SUV tire rating: 4.8

GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice Arctic SUV

Quite cheap, in comparison with the Continental IceContact 2 SUV, rollers that provide an equally high-quality grip on trails and off-road in any driving conditions. GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice Arctic SUV is a combination of deep tread without pronounced separation into the center and side parts, with a unique stud arrangement – from the periphery to the middle. It seems to be nothing remarkable, but this arrangement has one very important plus: low noise level caused by both a hit on the stiffness and the mutual selection of the spike levels relative to the rubber.

Be prepared for the car to behave differently during break-in – this is one of the oddities of the Ultra Grip Ice Arctic. In the future, the operation will go on a knurled one, and the control of the car on ice will delight no less than the excellent cross-country ability in deep snow. Together with the cost – the option is even more preferable than the Continental described below.

Advantages

  • optimal combination of price and quality;
  • reliable grip under any conditions;
  • good control of direct movement on ice;
  • no drift when passing through high-speed winding sections;
  • low noise level.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Continental IceContact 2 SUV

Rating SUV tire: 4.7

Continental IceContact 2 SUV

The local success of the Continental IceContact 2 SUV is due to two key factors: firstly, the very successful tread pattern with studs, and secondly, the correct selection of the composition and properties of the rubber. Thanks to this elaboration, the tires were able to convey optimal grip, and the gain in keeping the car in comparison with others is calculated in tens of percent. The sections covered by competitors in winter at a speed of 80-90 km / h, with this rubber, pass at around 110 km / h … and this is far from the limit.

As the owners note, the Continental IceContact 2 SUV holds the studs perfectly – after the first season, the number of dropped out does not exceed 1-2 pieces from one wheel. Again, getting into the balance of softness / hardness affects. Another thing is that they cost the same: the price on the market from the very moment of release does not fall below 10 thousand rubles. However, for quality and reliability, the price is quite acceptable.

Advantages

  • keeps its way perfectly in any road conditions (on ice, in deep snow, in clean areas and in porridge);
  • optimal softness – does not freeze in the cold and holds the thorns well;
  • high durability of the kit;
  • satisfactory lateral support.

disadvantages

  • high price.

Hankook Tire ipike RW11

SUV tire rating: 4.6

Hankook Tire ipike RW11

The studded tire Tire ipike RW11 occupies the fifth line of the rating by no means accidentally – the expediency of its use on ice and in a snowy slush is questioned by many owners. But first about the good. If the whole operation is limited to driving on deep snow, as well as driving on clean asphalt, then you will not feel any problems – the combination of thin sipes and blocks with outward access, as well as studs, helps to get the most out of the hook.

But as soon as the snow-covered road is replaced by ice or snow slurry, driving performance drops sharply, exposing the weakest points of the structure. The lamellas here are made in such a way that they do not lend themselves to self-cleaning when intensively filled with a snow-water mixture, because of which the entire braking load falls on the spikes. On the ice, sometimes the thorns do not help either – with a careless action there is every chance of skidding, and it is good if it can be controlled. Therefore, if the winter in your area is harsh, snowy, and does not throw up surprises in the form of temperature fluctuations to above zero, then the Hankook Tire ipike RW11 will be the perfect choice.

Advantages

  • good quality rubber;
  • does not harden and does not lose elasticity due to softness;
  • works great on snowy areas or clean asphalt.

disadvantages

  • very unpredictable behavior on ice;
  • high price.

The best all-season SUV tires

Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015

SUV tire rating: 5.0

Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015

Very evil and cheap tires from the Geolandar series, providing excellent control over the movement in all phases – from rolling in a straight line to turns and out of a rut. The latter in A / T G015 is indeed a very valuable skill, since winter in Russian cities rarely does without a large track on bypass roads. All this is provided by a very pronounced sidewall, reinforced even better than in the case of Toyo. True, there is no question of any clumsiness: not a single rubber owner shared his negative experience in cornering.

But the level of its noise was marked by many as incompatible with the concept of 'comfort'. As well as softness: it seems to be not the worst quality, but in the long term it can lead to rapid wear and a lack of a set for the winter. Off-road Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015 behaves actively and efficiently, but it is unlikely to overcome serious off-road conditions. Thus, the cheapest skating rinks performed the best and earned the first place in the rating.

Advantages

  • provides good grip;
  • effective on ice;
  • the lowest price in the rating;
  • reinforced sidewall for better control of movement;
  • overcomes the rut well;
  • high quality workmanship.

disadvantages

  • quite noisy and soft.

Cooper Discoverer A / T3

SUV tire rating: 4.9

Cooper Discoverer A / T3

The disadvantage of Cooper Discoverer A / T3 tires, according to users, is a very large mass – in all other respects, parity in quality has been restored. Traditionally a powerful model with good, reliable sidewalls, designed for driving on light dirt off-road and asphalt – what else is needed for an all-season. Due to the coarse cutting of lamellas, it has a tendency to self-cleaning, only occasionally throwing up troubles in the form of stuck pebbles of gravel or crushed stone. The buyers also had no complaints about the softness of the ride, as it pulls the car well, leveling the unevenness of the track.

Slight wobbles in the Discoverer A / T3 are common, but they do not look and feel like an opportunity to stall into an uncontrolled twist or cause to be thrown into an adjacent lane. Braking is decent, and not only on dry asphalt, but also on ice, which is not also evident in all stickies. In general, the rollers are really decent, and they do not experience problems with accessibility – you can buy them in any specialized catalog or at the nearest car market, since the model is very popular in Russia.

Advantages

  • low cost and good quality;
  • high popularity in the market;
  • we provide softness and good braking on ice;
  • copes well with light off-road;
  • wide cutting of sipes promotes active removal of moisture and dirt from the contact area of ​​the wheel with the road.

disadvantages

  • large mass of multicomponent rubber.

Toyo Open Country H / T

SUV tire rating: 4.8

Toyo Open Country H / T

Toyo's all-season tire is a typical off-road tire that does not mind off-roading, for which it receives the third line of our rating. The main difference between the Open Country H / T and its competitors is the wide grooves that distinguish the central block from the background of the entire wheel, and are also responsible for the proper removal of water and snow slurry from the contact zone. You can also highlight the almost flat side part, which serves as lateral support for good retention of a straight path of movement. But, despite all the positive nuances of such a step, on the road one gets the impression that the engineers overdid it a little. No, the car does not wiggle from side to side, it does not move at speed … it just seems that it reluctantly enters into turns at speed, slightly twisting relative to the real direction of travel.

Along with the strange behavior of Toyo Open Country H / T, rubber owners note its noise and softness – there is every chance that after a few seasons it will turn into an exclusively summer one, since all the tread blocks will be 'eaten' by the asphalt. The rest is complete satisfaction with the choice, and even for an acceptable amount.

Advantages

  • excellent road holding due to the presence of lateral supports;
  • mud and deep snow drip well;
  • low price;
  • acceptable appearance and quality.

disadvantages

  • soft and noisy rubber;
  • reluctantly enters high-speed turns in the early stages of operation.
