S&H Farm Supply can help you make an educated and informed decision that fits your riding needs without breaking the bank.

There is nothing worse than dry-rotted, balding tires on an ATV – especially when you have quite a bit of work that needs to be done around your property. There is a very diverse collection of ATV tire brands, sizes and purposes, yielding an even more diverse collection of prices. It can be overwhelming and confusing if you are not experienced in purchasing new tires for your ATV, and you might end up paying far more than you should if you aren’t careful. Don’t let that happen to you! Allow S&H Farm Supply to help alleviate some of the burden and present you with a few short tips on how to buy ATV tires.

Know your purpose.

Are you using your ATV as a utility vehicle to get the job done? Or do you primarily enjoy joy riding on your ATV? Before you buy, you will need to determine the primary use of your ATV for several reasons. Race tires are made very differently than utility tires. Race tires have less tread to reduce friction and increase speed. Utility tires have thick and deep tread, allowing for more traction in the roughest terrains. Likewise, race tires are not made to withstand rough and rugged terrain, whereas utility tires are made for just that – rough and rugged. Know what you need and save yourself a headache while shopping for ATV tires at S&H Farm Supply.

Know your budget.

Different tire brands and editions will yield a different cost. If you are looking for big name professional tires, you should be prepared to spend quite a bit more. If you want something lower cost, you will be looking at independent, “generic” off-brand tires. It all boils down to your budget and which brands you prefer. Don’t fall victim to the belief that lower cost means lower value, because that is not necessarily true. Read the specifications and check your budget before making your decision. If you’re not sure what kind of ATV tires you can get with your budget, talk to a S&H Farm Supply sales associate. We can help point you in the right direction and provide you with several options that won’t break the bank.

Know what size you need.

You wouldn’t buy shoes in the wrong size, so why buy tires of the wrong size? Before you head over to S&H Farm Supply to buy some new tires, find out what size you are going to need first. There are a few ways of finding out what size of tires your ATV requires. One way is to look on the tires themselves. Some brands still mold the dimensions along with the brand name. Another way is to check out the owner’s manual. Just like any other vehicle, the owner’s manual will show most specifications of that particular model. If neither of those solutions are available to you, call us here at S&H Farm Supply. We can help you determine what size ATV tires you need.
