The rules for all-terrain tires are changing dramatically, and companies are pushing the limits of off-pavement capabilities while retaining the on-road manners that most all-terrain customers really want. A little more spacing in the tread blocks and more aggressive shoulder lugs give this new breed of all-terrain tires much better performance in mud, rock and sand, but the basic tread design and layout provide good on-road traction. In addition to the Pro Comp Xterrain A/T shown, this new in-between style of tire also includes Goodyear DuraTrac and Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ Radial.
