ATV Flotation Tires 720765

Flotation tires on all-terrain vehicles (ATV) are an essential component for good, overall off-the-road mobility. Water displacement by the large volume tires provide additional buoyancy for amphibious vehicles. The large contact area of the deflected tire provides low ground pressure for flotation on soft ground. ATV tires are a special breed of tires with design features for better mobility such as carcass flexibility, wide tire section, and special tread design.
