Tyres are an important part of any vehicle, but they are especially important when it comes to off-reading. Leaving the city asphalt means relying on the wheels beneath your truck to take you through the woods, over the mud, dirt, and rocks, and get you back to the other side safely. If you have the wrong tyres on your truck, not only could you damage your vehicle, you could endanger yourself and other passengers as well.
Planning on off-roading this year and making a trip of it? Most off-road events across North America are full day, or full weekend activities. This means that you’ll need accommodations, and there may not always be a Hilton nearby. Some off-roaders choose to tow a camper for the excursion, while others take the old-fashioned route with tents and fishing poles. Whatever you choose to do, the basecamp setup is an important step toward truly enjoying the off-road experience.
Off-roading, fondly referred to as muddin’, doesn’t require a degree, but it does require a little know how and some serious respect for the machine you’re driving.

Before heading off the beaten path, check out these 5 tips to keep you safe and having fun the next time you’re out in your truck.
