Like most major manufacturers of high-end off-road rims, Forgiato Wheels has already given us some insights into what we can expect in 2023. That’s just 6 weeks away, and the company is ironing out any supply chain disruptions to avoid last-minute chaos at retail outlets across the United States.
Of course, off-road wheels require special tires. And without these stronger, more durable and heavier tires from ATVA, your off-roading adventure might just turn out to be a damp squib. Worse, you could get stuck in the wilderness unless you are using models specifically designed for hostile trails and rarely-trod terrain.
All experienced off-roaders know how essential it is to have a set of tried-and-tested car wheels and tires designed to take on the worst sorts of surfaces. If you are new to the grid, here are some tips to select the best off-road tires that will fit all aftermarket rims like a suede glove.

I already have the latest off-road wheels! Do I really need different tires?
Yes, you do.
Without proper off-road tires, you will have a very hard time navigating your 4×4 or even an ATV the moment you leave the familiar suburban roads.
Let’s start off with 2 points you need to keep in mind while purchasing such expensive tubes.
- Size: Off-road vehicles come in so many different varieties that it is but obvious that the tires they will need different sizes of tires. You will find the dimensions mentioned in the vehicle owner’s manual. Else, you can visit your local experts in ‘modding’ cars and they will help you out.
- Tread: The tread has to be as heavy and bulky as possible. The space between two tread blocks must also be noted with care. While most all-terrain tires have what it takes for off-roading provided you have the right set of car wheels, it is best not to risk it. Always go for branded M/T or mud terrain models.
Needless to say, go for branded tires only. And ask for the wear rating figures too.
Fine! What options do I have?
Assuming you have already selected your next set of off-road wheels, you can consider any of the models mentioned here.
- Goodyear Wrangler MT/R: One of the most iconic tire manufacturers in the whole wide world, Goodyear frequently ramps up its range to add more models and provide more choices to its millions of patrons. The MT/R has a layer of Kevlar that adds a lot more strength. It’s the best choice for your pickup vans and small trucks.
The Wrangler MT/R has been one of the company’s top-selling models for some years now, although the Kevlar version is somewhat recent. These tires work beautifully if you are using a set of custom forged Forgiato Wheels.
This model can be a lifesaver if you are off-roading on unknown trails and in rainy conditions. As the mud accumulates, most tires will either get stuck or will rotate without any visible impact.
Thanks to the deep treads, the Kevlar, small and sharp sipes between blocks to eliminate water, these tires are capable of overcoming boggy terrain without breaking a sweat.
All usual bells and whistles expected from Goodyear are yours as is a model made from rubber sourced responsibly.
Note that the MT/R Kevlar model can be pretty expensive.
- BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2: This is a relatively new model from a company that is over 130 years old. BFGoodrich was one of a handful of other tire companies that made Akron in Ohio a recognized city across the globe. This new tire ticks a lot of the right boxes.
Only a few companies offer treadwear warranties – and that too on select models. BFGoodrich offers exactly that with the A/T KO2.
What this means is that the company promises you the tread of these tires will last for more than 50,000 miles. That’s more than 80,000 kilometers.
It hardly matters what hellish terrain you find yourself on! If you have the right set of Forgiato Wheels to go with these (or Fuel, Enkei, Lexani rims for that matter), you will not have to worry a lot about changing the tires.
BFGoodrich uses proprietary technology to enrich the rubber with several other compounds – like elastomers – and this provides that extra bit of durability and grip to the A/T KO2.
If you are planning to take home a set of these tires, you’ll be glad to learn that they are more responsive to braking than several competing models. Another advantage!
- Falken Wildpeak A/T3W: If you are looking for even higher levels of adrenaline, you can opt for this marvelous and brilliantly engineered Falken. Falken is one of the world’s 10 most prolific manufacturers of tires that fit all sorts of car wheels available in this country.
Falken clearly designed the Wildpeak A/T3W for performance. From the asymmetric tread to the lower weight and from the mixed-source rubber to a lofty speed rating, it has almost all the features of an ideal tire for off-roading.
Navigation and braking become easier the moment you start using these tubes. What’s more, Falken has also ensured that they do not create a cacophony when you finally leave the dirt trails behind and arrive at your apartment!
The price tag is also not a dealbreaker.
A few last words
It is always a great idea to purchase these rugged wonders from trusted and established retailers only, just as you do with off-road wheels.
Beware of fakes, however. For best results, you can perhaps get in touch with AudioCity USA of California.
