If you plan on doing any racing with your off road vehicle, then you’ll want to pay special attention to the tires. Thankfully, at Butch’s Speed Shop, we might as well change our name to off road tires Las Vegas central, since we know everything there is to know about these high performance components.
To start with, you’ll want a different type of tire depending on the surface you’re planning on racing in. Barreling through sand dunes around Las Vegas, for instance, rather than your everyday dirt roads, requires a specialized type of off-road tire and the same is of course true if you plan on racing in mud or grass. On sand or mud a tire with large paddles will be ideal, but on a faster surface such a tire will only end up slowing you down. Obviously the size of your off road buggy and the engine’s horsepower also comes into play, with powerful, large converted vehicles needing much more tire support than your smaller variety.
Although offroad tire products from Sand Tires Unlimited are probably our favorite, we stock plenty of tires from other manufacturers too, such as the Yokohama Tire Corp, who is well known for their high performance motorsports tires. Finally, if you don’t see what you’re looking for, or have a question about which product will work best for you, then feel free to give us a call or drop by the store. We’re always happy to help out fellow race enthusiasts!
