For the Asphalt Warrior
Ruben Piña, director of operations at KG Custom, specializes in customizing vehicles. Piña believes it is crucial to match the vehicle with the right wheels and the driver’s lifestyle. For everyday rides to work and simple errands, the asphalt warrior driving a light truck or an SUV could consider “a long thread life, a softer compound in the rubber and a tire that works in dry and wet conditions,” Piña explains. He recommends low-profile tires for the drivers who prioritize riding in a vehicle with a better grip on the road.
Best Tires for Terrain
The Weekend Warrior
For the avid weekend travelers who go on road trips often, an “all-terrain” tire works the best. “These tires yield balanced performance in all weather conditions over various terrains and guarantee the best traction and performance,” says Piña. “They’re the best all-around tires—on or off road, and they’re perfect for road trips to Joshua Tree National Park or Palm Springs.” He assures all the weekend warriors that with these all-terrain tires, their trips will not only be safe, but smooth and quiet as well.
If you are planning your next extreme adventure in a four-wheel drive vehicle in the desert or off mountain roads, then look no further than the “mud terrain” tires. Piña describes them in great detail as being “large, knobby tires spaced out evenly, allowing traction, but also giving extra grip and stability in wet, muddy or snowy conditions.” These tires are made with durability in mind to resist unpredictable sharp objects that could cause unwanted punctures on rough roads. Piña says these tires have “aggressive side shoulder grooves for added grip and larger tread lugs to reduce the entrapment of mud and snow.”
