2003 Wheel And Tire Buyers Guide

As four-wheel enthusiasts, we're sure dirt, sand, mud, snow, slick rock, and ice have become your best friends. To help maintain this man, machine, and 'wheeling relationship, proper tire and wheel selection is critical. With the coming of each new year, four-wheel vehicles are becoming more and more capable. When using your vehicle's capabilities and transferring its power to the ground, wheel strength and tire traction are the keys to keeping this healthy relationship alive and well.

With the aid of super computer design programs, high-tech chemistry, and state of the art manufacturing processes, today's tires and wheels offer amazing durability, strength, and safety. Four-wheelin' tires with mild and aggressive tread patterns are created with long-wearing, super-gripping compounds that offer excellent traction under the most extreme conditions. Wheels are created under the most stringent of standards and built to last even when heavily abused out on the trail. Not only do they look good, but they can endure a thorough beating and keep you rolling safely back home.

Listed below are some of the who's who of tire and wheel manufacturers and a gathering of some of the best rubber, steel, and aluminum available for your rig. From aggressive mud-terrain and dependable all-terrain tires to hot-looking aluminum alloy, tough steel, and tire-gripping bead-lock wheels (bead locks are not street legal), this guide has what you need - or at least it will point you in the right direction.
