With such a range of different uses, the pickup truck is one of the most popular vehicles in Thailand. Those different uses mean that it is important to make sure that you are choosing tyres that are appropriate for what you intend to use it for, e.g. road use only or off road work.
When choosing tyres for your pick up truck we would recommend that you consider carefully what type of driving you are likely to do, such as:
- Handling – On road driving or off road
- Wet & dry grip
- Road noise and comfort
High Terrain (H/T) or 4x4 tyres
These tyres are most suitable for pickups that will mainly be used on the road and are capable of only very light off road use. As a result they offer a more comfortable ride with lower road noise.
All Terrain 4x4 tyres
All terrain tyres are your classic 4x4 tyre, ideal for drivers who use the pickup for on road and off road.
These tyres provide excellent grip and comfort for both styles of driving. Due to the compound and construction of the tyre, they should offer a longer lifespan before they need replacing.
Mud Terrain 4x4 tyres
These tyres are most suitable for pickup drivers who live in rural areas and mainly use the vehicle for off road driving, e.g. 80% off road, 20% on road.
The distinctive tread patterns on these tyres have large gaps between treads in order to provide maximum traction. As a result, road use will see much poorer traction in the wet leading to higher breaking distances, compared to other options. Therefore, these are not recommended for users who frequently travel on the road.
