Worn out ATV tires are no good, but new ones can be pretty pricey. To help find some new rubber for your ride, we’ve found five good but cheap ATV tires.
There are plenty of reasons to want new tires on your ATV. The stock ones may have worn out, or been trashed by riding on harsher terrain. The biggest reason to want to swap out the tires is performance. Sometimes you just want new meats on the rims to gain an edge in traction. The problem is one we’re all too familiar with – cost. Tires cost money. Who knew, right? Luckily if you know where to look, there are some really good but cheap ATV tires on the market. Some of them are brands you know, while others may be new to you. Either way, here are five good but cheap ATV tires.
GBC Dirt Devil
The Dirt Devil is a directional ATV tire that works well for varied terrain; everything from light mud to hard-pack dirt. They have dimpled lugs with decent sideway tread for additional traction. They come in a 6-ply design for durability, too, so they can handle some tough terrain. These tires are GBC’s best-selling rubber, too. At under $60 apiece, these are some seriously good, but cheap ATV tires.
STI Outback AT
STI Tires are some of our favorites because they are really good tires that offer great traction and features, but are often much cheaper than other brands. The Outbacks have been around for a little while and have nice deep lugs for traction in various terrain types. They are a little better in mud than many others in this price range, making them a great choice for the ATV rider looking for more traction in the sloppy stuff. You can snag these for usually under $70 a pop, making them a great, cheap ATV tire option.
One of the ways you can save money is by going with a house brand tire. In this case, the house is Chaparral Racing and their Ocelot brand. The tires are a multi-directional, deep lug tire with a 6-ply construction and shoulder lugs for additional traction and control in mud and ruts. The best part of these types of tires is that they keep the costs down and are extremely similar to other, more mainstream brands, making them an excellent, cheap alternative when you need new tires.
Another house-branded tire comes from Tusk, at Rocky Mountain ATV. It doesn’t take a genius to see the lineage of these good but cheap ATV tires. They have a tread pattern that is very similar to a very popular, but much higher-priced tire. They boast a 6-ply rating and like everything we’ve seen from the Tusk brand, are a great lower-cost alternative.
ITP Mudlight AT
It’s pretty cool when a major tire brand can make the list for good but cheap ATV tires, so you might be a little surprised to see a tire from ITP on this list. But at less than $55 a pop, the Mudlight AT tires were a no-brainer for this list. The biggest claim to fame for these 6-ply tires is that they are the lightest mud-rated tire on the market. This means you’ll get all the traction benefits without the added rolling mass that can bog down your ATV. This makes them the perfect good but cheap ATV tire for your ride, especially if you have a smaller-engine machine.
