Learn How to Find the Best UTV or ATVs Tire for your Side-by-Side or Four Wheeler.

Whether it’s your first time shopping for UTV/ATV tires or you just need a refresher on how to find the best tire, we have you covered.

Here are a few pointers on where to start your UTV/ATV tire search:

Understand Ply Rating: The ply rating tells you the overall strength and longevity of the tire. The higher the ply rating, the tougher the tire. Expect to pay more for 6 or 7-ply rated tires vs 2 or 3-ply tires, but also expect less flats. Some manufacturers list the ply rating on the UTV/ATV tire sidewall.

The ply rating does not always correspond with the number of plies in the tire. In earlier times, this was true but modern technology has made it possible for  UTV/ATV tires with 3 plies to match the strength of  UTV/ATV tires with 6 plies.

Ply ratings are still useful in that they are relative to one-another within a brand. So a 6-ply UTV/ATV tire today might not have 6 plies but it’ll still be tougher than a 3-ply UTV/ATV tire.

Understanding Star Rating: Stars correspond with a UTV/ATV tire’s maximum operating pressure.

  • 1 Star = 4 PSI
  • 2 Stars = 5 PSI
  • 3 Stars = 7 PSI

Finding the Right Tread: An all-terrain vehicle is designed to get you through tough terrain, so long as you have the right tires installed. Choose from standard A/T tires for general purpose riding, mud tires with a directional tread for pushing through mud, sand tires with paddles for dunes and beaches, or racing tires for high-speed trails.

Why is Ply Rating Important for UTV and ATV Tires?

The ply rating tells you the overall strength and longevity of the tire. The higher the ply rating, the tougher the tire. Expect to pay more for 6 or 7-ply rated tires vs 2 or 3-ply tires, but also expect less flats. Some manufacturers list the ply rating on the UTV/ATV tire sidewall.

What air pressure should I run in my UTV or ATV Tires?

Look at the sidewalls of your UTV or ATV tires.  Most state a maximum and minimum pressure.  Most also have “Stars” that correspond with a UTV/ATV tire’s maximum operating pressure.

  • 1 Star = 4 PSI
  • 2 Stars = 5 PSI
  • 3 Stars = 7 PSI

Which tread pattern should I run on my UTV?

It all depends on what type of vehicle you are riding or driving, where you drive it most, and how hard you drive it.   An all-terrain vehicle is designed to get you through tough terrain, so long as you have the right tires installed. You can choose from standard A/T tires for general purpose family riding, mud tires with a directional tread for pushing through that Virginia mud, sand tires with paddles for the Maryland dunes and beaches, or racing tires for high-speed trails.

How do i know what size tire to get for my Four Wheeler or Side-By-Side?

Rice Tire always recommends installing the same size tire chosen by the manufacturer of your Four Wheeler or Side-By-Side.  Of course, if you have made significant aftermarket upgrades to the chassis and suspension systems to compensate for the extra weight and rotational forces that larger tires and wheels can bring to bare on your vehicle then we have a wide selection to choose from.    UTV/ATV tire sizes are displayed on the sidewall as height x widthwheel diameter. It’s recommended you stick with the stock size chosen by the manufacturer unless you’re looking for certain performance benefits and understand the pros and cons of changing size.  Always consult  owner’s manual for more information.
