All About ATV Mud Tires

By: Discount Tire

Before you hit your favorite trail, stop and think: do you have the right ATV tires? And more specifically, are mud-terrain tires right for you and your ATV/UTV?

If you’re taking your ATV, UTV or side-by-side out with the express goal of rock crawling, trail-racing, muddin’ or any other form of off-road madness, then you’d better have a set of ATV mud tires on there.

There are as many mud tires as there are ATVs to put them on, so we’re taking some of the guesswork out of it by offering our top-3 ATV mud tire picks so you can focus on the fun stuff!

Rage Mohave

Rage tires are built to provide pro-level traction (without the pro-level cost). That’s why our first ATV mud tire recommendation is the Rage Mohave.

Featuring large, knobby tread blocks and a self-cleaning design, the Mohave is built to tear through mud and other soft surfaces. But don’t think that waters down its abilities on other off-road terrain types. 

Thanks to its durable 8-ply construction and jutting sidewall features, this Rage tire resists cuts, tears and punctures. That means you can prevail against any terrain you choose without worrying about getting sidelined by sharp rocks, sticks or other dangerous debris.

Nitto Trail Grappler SxS

Touted the world over for their dependable truck, SUV and performance tires, this tire manufacturer have taken inspiration from their LT mud offering to bring you the Nitto Trail Grappler SxS.

All the full-bore off-road thrills of a Nitto mud tire packed into an ATV-spec fitment? Sounds like a no-brainer to us. 

But if you need more convincing, take a look at that rugged tread design. Large sidewall lugs, alternating shoulder scallops and enough tread void to clear any mud hole, this tire is ready-built for serious mud-slinging.

Still unsure? Consider the fact that Nitto developed this tire specifically to compete at the King of the Hammers.

When you ride on this tire, you’re letting everyone on the trail know that you aren’t messing around.

BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3

No list of ATV mud terrains would be complete without an offering from BFG. With that, we give you our final ATV mud tire recommendation, the BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3.

One of the best-loved MT tires from one of the most well-known builders of off-road products, the BFG KM3 epitomizes all-out off-road performance.

First and foremost, it comes with a tougher shell than just about any tire out there. It may not be bulletproof, but it comes close. 

And that wild tread pattern deals heavy damage off-road thanks to its Terrain Attack Design. This innovative tread layout provides grip in any direction, so you can keep moving no matter what obstacles lie in your way.

When you’re ready to make the upgrade, we’ve got you covered. We stock ATV MT tires in popular sizes, including 30, 31 and 32 inches. We even have a range of ATV rims, so you can build your own custom ATV wheel and tire package!

From here, our stores are staffed by off-road experts with years of experience outfitting ATVs, UTVs and side-by-sides with the right tires and wheels for your setup, so we can get you back on the trail in no time.
