255 60 R18 - offroad and onroad go
The size 255 60 R18 is a typical off-roader dimension - most of these big off-roader but driven mostly as luxury SUVs almost exclusively in road maintenance. The majority of the tyres offered in this dimension are therefore predominantly pure road tyres.
Mainly made for the road
In size 255 60 R18 can be found on the market mainly road tyres - that has to do with the fact that the vast majority of vehicles luxury offroader or -SUVs are that are hardly ever moved in the terrain. special tyres are always required for actual rides in moderate or severe terrain, particularly against damage must be resistant and are primarily designed for traction. The ContiCrossContact of Continental , for example, as a tyre as off-road tyres can be driven in use all year round and is well suited for off-road with its rugged cleat profile. On the road, however, a such a tyre model is not usually recommended because of the usually less good characteristics in the wet and high fuel consumption.
Typical road tyres provide high performance
A typical road tyres for off-road vehicles are for example the Nexen Roadian from the budget segment or the Toyo Proxes, a real high-performance tyres for the summer street. Also Kumho Ecsta has with a tyre in 255 60 R18 with good allround performance in the program. In the off-road winter tyres is especially the Scorpion Snow & Ice by Pirelli, who brings real convincing performance here. The ContiCrossContact is as off-road tyres for use all year round but always well suited for the road when really hard wintry road conditions can be mastered. Otherwise, more models such as the W310 Hankook clearly recommendable, since one just in winter in temperate zones often have to expect wet salty roads, on which usually has very little maintenance a pure off-road tyre.
In size 255 60 R18 are very few genuine off-road tyres for SUVs and SUVs on the market, most are addressed more adapted to vehicles for road-only mode. There is both high-performance specialists like the Toyo Proxes and good winter tyres like the Pirelli Snow & Ice.
