The versatile SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) is one of the fastest growing segments of the auto industry but what tyre’s are best suited to the popular adventurer and what tyre would best suit the Australian climate?

In the 1930’s similar passenger vehicles were used to transport troops around during the war. It wasn’t until 1984, however, that the term SUV was used when the first Jeep Cherokee (XJ) was introduced to the automotive market.

Smaller crossover vehicles are all considered to be a part of the SUV market, which now accounts for 36.4% of passenger vehicles sold. As large sedans and wagons began to forge the SUV presence, its popularity exploded.

So, what is the best tyre for your SUV? Well, with so many options available it's easy to be lost in the noise. Tyrepower stores across Kogarah Tyrepower have a great selection of tyres, well equipped to handle the outback of Australia and beyond.

When purchasing tyre’s, it pays to be honest with your tyre dealer.

As there are many SUV vehicles, there are many tyre options available too. From the more aggressive Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain Plus, to the popular Michelin Primacy series.

Here are a few things to consider when purchasing a new set of tyres for your SUV.

  • Comfort
  • Road noise
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Durability
  • Safety
  • On or Off-road

It’s easy to get caught up in marketing tricks and sales tactics but at the end of the day, sticking with trusted brands is the safe and reliable bet. There are many reputable brands on the market for SUV tyres including Pirelli, Toyo, Goodyear and Dunlop.
