When you go shopping for all-terrain tires for your truck, SUV or crossover, you are typically going to be looking to split the difference between good off-road capability and decent road manners, such as handling, ride and noise suppression. Manufacturers know that many SUVs and trucks with all-terrain tires are never going to stray that far away from public roads, so they carefully compromise the tire’s off-road performance with a slight bias toward road use.

Tires are part of the backbone of a car, truck, piece of construction equipment or bicycle. Tires add traction, braking, steering and load support to vehicles while also absorbing shock and creating a smooth and comfortable ride. They are o-shaped parts that can be pneumatic or solid and fit around the wheels of the vehicle to protect the wheels and add to their effect. A solid tire consists of rubber, metals and plastic parts.
In the past tires have been made of steel and sometimes even iron and were placed on wooden wheels. They were used for carts and wagons. The steel or iron was melted in a fire so it could be easily molded onto the wooden wheel of the cart or wagon.
