In my garage you’ll find (admittedly among a rather unsightly long since forgotten piles of sundry items): one truck, small in stature, but large in heart; one motorcycle, poor in starting capacity, but rich in non-running memories; and finally one cool 4 wheeler, that needs neither my silly description nor your having to strain at considering how much fun it is. An odd little something has come to define my relationship with these three machines. Although the greatest amount of affection goes towards the ATV and is the vehicle that driven the hardest, a level just slightly above “none at all” has gone into the consideration towards its tires.
This oddity is further complicated by my understanding of the importance that tires play in the safety of other types of vehicles. Very little thought is needed to go into the realization that cheap ATV tires can bring forth as much trouble as those on any vehicle. In fact, given the wide variety of terrain that ATVs are driven on and the wide varieties of styles in which they are driven attention to the tires seems all the more imperative.
And its true, without proper purchase considering terrain and driving style, or even worse yet, the blatant purchase of cheap ATV tires, the is unquestionably an accident waiting to happen. In regards to the cheap ATV tires that should be avoided at all costs, this is due to their inability to handle the real world surfaces found anywhere off your driveway. With the potential ruggedness of the land the cheap ones will lead you a probable flat tire of a frustrating stick in the mud. With this in mind, the tires of all your vehicles must garner equal attention, even if your feelings for the vehicles themselves do not.
