OK4WD Tires and Wheels

What's the Purpose of Using Oversized Wheels and Tires in Off-Roading?

Are you looking to take your off-road adventures to the next level? Consider upgrading your wheels and tires with oversized/plus-fit tires from OK4WD. Here are some reasons why you should choose OK4WD for your oversized wheels and tires installation:


Improved Ground Clearance

By adding larger tires to your vehicle, you'll gain increased ground clearance, allowing you to easily navigate over rocks, logs, and debris without getting stuck. This is especially important when traversing rough terrain or crossing shallow streams and rivers.

Better Traction

Off-road tires have deeper treads and wider grooves, providing better traction on loose dirt, mud, and gravel. With OK4WD's off-road tires, you'll have improved grip on uneven terrain, reducing the risk of skidding or sliding.

Increased Durability

Our off-road tires are designed to withstand harsh conditions, including rough terrain, gravel, and sharp rocks. With our oversized tire upgrades, your vehicle will gain increased durability, reducing the risk of punctures or damage to your tires.

Enhanced Performance

Oversized tires provide a larger contact patch with the ground, improving your vehicle's acceleration and braking performance. This is especially important when navigating steep inclines or declines, where traction is crucial.

What's the Difference Between All-Terrain, Off-Road, Mud Tires, and Road Tires?

All-terrain, off-road, and mud tires are all designed for different driving conditions and terrain types. Here are some key differences between these types of tires:


All-terrain tires

These tires are designed to perform well on both paved roads and light off-road terrain. They have a more aggressive tread pattern than standard highway tires, but not as aggressive as off-road or mud tires. All-terrain tires typically have better handling and traction on wet or snowy roads than off-road or mud tires.

Off-road tires

These tires are designed specifically for off-road use and are not recommended for regular on-road use. They have larger, deeper treads and thicker sidewalls to provide better grip on loose dirt, rocks, and other rough terrain. Off-road tires typically have less grip on paved roads than all-terrain or mud tires, and they can be noisy and uncomfortable to drive on.


Mud tires

These tires are designed for use in deep mud, sand, and other soft, loose terrain. They have even larger, deeper treads than off-road tires, with wider gaps between the tread blocks to provide better traction in mud and snow. Mud tires are typically not recommended for regular on-road use due to their poor handling and noise levels.


Additionally, we mount and balance road tires as well. There are many different types of tires available for various vehicles and driving conditions.


All-season tires

These tires are designed to provide a balance of performance and traction in wet, dry, and light snowy conditions. They typically have a moderate tread pattern that provides good handling on pavement.

Winter tires

These tires are designed to provide optimal traction in snowy and icy conditions. They have a softer rubber compound and deeper treads with specialized grooves and sipes to provide better grip on slippery surfaces.

Summer tires

These tires are designed to provide optimal performance and handling in warm and dry conditions. They typically have a harder rubber compound and a tread pattern that is optimized for high-speed driving on dry pavement.

Touring tires

These tires are designed for long-distance driving and provide a comfortable, quiet ride. They typically have a moderate tread pattern and a smooth, quiet ride.
Performance tires: These tires are designed for high-performance vehicles and provide maximum grip and handling on dry pavement. They typically have a soft rubber compound and a tread pattern that is optimized for high-speed driving and aggressive cornering.

Run-flat tires

These tires are designed to allow a vehicle to continue driving even after a puncture or blowout, allowing the driver to reach a safe location to replace the tire. Run-flat tires typically have reinforced sidewalls that can support the weight of the vehicle even with no air pressure.
