Trying to decide if your truck or car is suited for off-roading? First, consider the traction.
If you daydream of beach driving, mud driving, or simply getting off the pavement while driving through the countryside, you need a vehicle that’s fit for the off-roading task. But deciding whether your vehicle can try one of Delaware’s off-road parks or even something more adventurous isn’t necessarily a simple decision. A lot goes into it from the type of tire you need to clearance and gearing.
The first obstacle you need to consider is traction, according to outsideonline.com.
“By definition, going off-road is the act of driving with limited traction. Roads are designed to provide smooth and consistent grip for your tires. The natural world wasn’t designed at all,” outsideonline.com says.
It adds, “The first and most important thing you can do to gain traction off-road is use a good set of all-terrain or mud-terrain tires, and run those at an appropriate pressure. These are designed to grip surfaces like sand, rocks, wet grass, or mud, whereas road tires are only designed to grip pavement. The right tires for the job also help provide traction while braking and cornering, which the rest of the systems … cannot, making such tires even more important.”
That sounds simple and, to an extent, it is. But the right tire depends on the terrain you plan to negotiate. A tire that’s good in the mud isn’t necessarily the best tire to climb a rocky mountain. Similarly, a tire fit to climb that rocky mountain isn’t going to help you get over a sand dune at the beach.
