If you have a pick-up truck or SUV, we can see why you’d be tempted to opt for chunky off-road tyres. They can make a vehicle look much more purposeful, while also giving a healthy increase in off-piste ability.

But what kind of difference do they actually make, and how do boots like these affect on-road performance? To find out, Tyre Reviews shod a Ford F-150 Raptor in a variety of different options from General, and got testing on a several surfaces.

How Much Difference Do All-Terrain And Mud Tyres Actually Make?

The baseline is the HTS60, an ‘H/T’ or ‘highway terrain tyre’ - a typical road-focused SUV or pick-up tyre which still has some competence on looser surfaces. There are two all-terrain tyres in the form of the APT and the much more aggressive AT/X, and finally one mud-terrain hoop - the X3. To cap it all off, a much larger version of the X3 is added to the mix, to see if there are any benefits to going up a size other than the obvious - that it looks awesome.

Sit back, relax, and prepare for an all-terrain tyre education.



I have a set of the AT/X’s on my Tahoe and they work great for the mild/moderate trails that i go on every now and then. Also had plenty of traction (unless i floored it) in the once per year snowstorm we get around here

Thanks for a nice video comparison of the all-terrain and mud tires. I also owned all-terrain tires a few years ago since I needed to go back and forth to my dad’s farm and my home in the suburbs. My family and I are currently moved so I got a set of Toyo Open Country MT on my truck. I’m really impressed with its performance.
