What truck tires last the longest?

The tire testing involved several timed laps averaged out. To ensure accurate results, Benson utilizes control tires to benchmark the track’s surface evolution and calculate each all-terrain tire’s rating in individual testing categories. The factors he measured for the tires included wet handling, dry handling, dirt handling, gravel handling, and overall comfort.

Each tire was given a rating out of 10.0 based on these criteria.

Wet Handling

Wet handling is one of the most important measurements in all-terrain tire tests because the wet grip of a tire can greatly affect how your vehicle responds in an emergency event. This wet handling test included three timed laps around one of Uvalde Proving Grounds’ tracks in very wet conditions.

Dry Handling

While all-terrain tires are meant to perform on- and off-road, they are primarily going to be used on the road by most drivers. This test included three timed laps around one of Uvalde Proving Grounds’ tracks in extremely dry conditions to simulate average road conditions.

Dirt Handling

Dirt handling is one of the most important factors to consider if you’re looking to take your pickup truck off the road on a regular basis. Benson went about testing each all-terrain tire’s dirt handling by averaging out the times of three laps around one of Uvalde Proving Grounds’ off-road tracks.

Gravel Handling

By nature, gravel handling is an important test to run, but especially difficult to do right. For each three-lap run, it takes 20 minutes of combing dirt and rocks to “fix” the track between each all-terrain tire test. As previously explained, this test consisted of three timed laps around one of Uvalde Proving Grounds’ off-road tracks.

Comfort

Benson considered each tire’s comfort on- and off-road in addition to their general road noise levels. He kept this category in mind and kept notes on comfort while performing testing for each of the other categories.

How We Score Products

Star ratings help us to differentiate between the top-performing products on the market. For the all-terrain tires in this review, we wanted to test on a scale of 1.0 to 10.0 stars because our testing involved an experienced tire expert. Based on our calculations, the all-terrain tires in this review scored an average of 8.82 out of 10.0 stars.

  • 10.0 Stars

    : A 10.0-star rating is the highest rating these tires can receive in our review. If the tires exceeded our expectations when it came to each testing criterion, you’d see a high score for the tires and likely a higher overall placement on the list of our top picks.


  • 9.0 to 6.0 Stars

    : A range between 9.0 and 6.0 stars means that the tires still exceeded our expectations but could have room for improvement. On the higher end of 9.0 stars, there may be slight changes we would like to see in the tire. For a 6.0-star rating, we may have some concerns about traction over time in wetter conditions.


  • 5.0 Stars

    : A 5.0-star rating is an average score. If the tires met our expectations but could use improvements across all the testing criteria we considered, you’ll likely see a 5.0-star rating with an indication of why our testing expert scored the tire lower than others.


  • 4.0 to 2.0 Stars

    : This range of scoring is below average. If the tires could not handle wet traction well and posed concern when we considered different climates potential buyers may be living in wetter conditions.


  • 1.0 Star

    : A 1.0-star rating is the lowest rating we would give in any review. If the tires in this review were defective in some way that affected installation, traction, or handling, we would give the tire a lower rating of 1.0 stars.
