All-terrain tires are as they say for ALL types of terrain! They are not as aggressive as an MT. They have smaller tread blocks, a narrow void and less-robust internal construction. The tread on all-terrain tires is also permeated with sipes for traction, making them a great choice for wet, snowy or icy conditions. The tradeoff for off-road traction comes in a much smoother ride quality, better handling, tread life, noise level and traction in practically every other kind of conditions other than mud. Mud-terrain tires are specifically designed to be used when driving off-road, in jagged rocks, loose soil, mud or sand. Mud terrain tires feature larger treads and wider, deep gaps between them. This allows the tire to clear mud, gravel and debris as you drive.
It is ok if you don’t. It has only been around and on cars built after 2008. TPMS is your cars **Tire Pressure Monitoring System**. The TPMS symbol is either a cross-section of a tire with an exclamation point in it or an overhead view of a car with all four tires exposed.
TPMS is a very helpful tool that helps drivers understand the safety of their cars, and tires. There are a variety of considerations from tire companies and automakers, a TPMS warning light isn't required to come on until the tire is at 25 percent below the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure. That's also well below the pressure required for safe driving.
Temperature really affects your tire pressure! The tire pressure then affects your tires’ grip. It’s important to know that under-inflated tires are costing you more money, and how improperly inflated tires will wear down much faster. According to multiple publications, you can assume that tire pressure goes down 1 PSI when the ambient temperature goes down 10 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature increases, so does the tire’s PSI. This can be dangerous in the winter time because you could be driving on under-inflated tires if you haven’t check them since the summer. When it comes to tire grip, low pressure in your tires can give you more of it on a warm, dry day. If you’re driving on a wet surface, however, low tire pressure significantly increases your chances of hydroplaning.
