An all-terrain vehicle (ATV), also known as a quad, three-wheeler, four-track, four-wheeler, or quadricycle is designed to handle a wide variety of terrain and traditionally travels on low-pressure tyres.
Quad and ATV tyres can come with traction treads, everyday multi-purpose knobbly treads, road going or racing tread patterns. Speak to one of our tyre technicians about your requirements.
To find your current tyre size, look for the numbers on the sidewall of the quad / ATV tyre. There are likely to be three numbers, which tell you the height of the tyre, the width, and the diameter of the rim.
Most quad and ATV tyres are of 'Crossply' construction, but some quad and ATV tyres are optimised for road use and will be 'Radial' construction.
A Ply Rating is a measure of a tyre's strength, indicating the maximum load that the quad bike tyre can safely carry. Tyres with a higher ply rating carry more weight but cost more due to their superior construction and the extra materials used. The exact carrying capacity of a quad bike tyre can vary by axle, speed, pattern, pressure and manufacturer.
Most quad and ATV tyres also have a speed and load index on the sidewall.
The numerical code tells you the maximum load the tyre can carry and the maximum speed the tyre can travel at. It is essential for the safety of the vehicle and its passengers that you have the correct tyres fitted to your quad vehicle or ATV.
