Buying discount all-terrain vehicle (ATV) tires can help you save money, but there are some points to consider before choosing the tires. ATVs can be used for many different purposes, including utility and sport, and any discount ATV tires you buy should fit how you use the ATV. While an ATV is all-terrain, some discount ATV tires will be better suited for a specific terrain. Durability can be an issue for any tire, so it may be a good idea to check the estimated number of miles or kilometers a tire will get. Being discounted, the ATV tires may have quality issues if the discount reflects a company that is cutting corners.
There are many uses for an ATV; a utility ATV is made for pulling things and general driving, while a sports ATV is used for tricks and harder driving. While general discount ATV tires may work for any purpose, getting tires that suit your needs should ensure better longevity. For example, getting thicker tires that can better withstand extra weight may work best for a utility ATV.
Another important consideration is where you intend to drive the ATV. While an ATV can travel on any terrain and most discount ATV tires will support any terrain, some tires are specialized for particular adverse conditions. If you normally drive in calm terrains, then there may be no need to seek out specialized tires; if you normally are driving in mud, snow or rocky conditions, then it may be good to get special tires. They often will help with traction and may live longer than general ATV tires used under the same conditions.
Durability, or how long discount ATV tires will last, is another important consideration, because few people want to buy tires that will need to be replaced quickly. Most discount ATV tires will show an estimated number of miles or kilometers the tires should get before needing to be replaced. This is only an estimate, though, and factors such as terrain and use also can affect longevity.
Discount ATV tires are sometimes cheaper because a third party is trying to enter this competitive market and wants to attract customers. Other companies that make ATV tires cut corners to make a cheaper product, which can affect quality. Checking ATV tires for quality and warranties can help, because these will protect you if the ATV tires do not last very long.
