WTK: 4 X 2 tires :- Highway or All terrain?

Postby audain » October 31st, 2009, 9:14 pm

I have a 4 x 2 frontier with highway tires. Mainly do highway driving. Should

I purchase All terrain tires or highway tires? I like the look of the All

terrains but are they practical on a 4 X 2? Are there advantages and

disadvantages in using an all terrain on a 4 X 2? Any advice will be greatly

appreciated.

will be quieter. and actually grip better on the surfaces you'll be spending most of your time.

Tanx for the advice. was reading the other threads on tires and found that

they more dealt with all terrain tyres. Since i have a 4 x 2 cud anyone

recommend a highway tire, tanx.

Highway definately

All Terrain would be a waste for you as you are 4x2 and not 4x4

your terrain is mostly tarmac, so spend $$$ on tyres that will give u good traction there
