Atturo AZ850 Review
Atturo is best known for its off-road truck tires, but the brand also offers a street-focused high performance option for SUVs, crossovers and even sport trucks.
- Impressive dry grip and cornering
- Solid selection of sizes
- Incredibly affordable
- Tread life
- Lack of mileage warranty
The Atturo AZ850 definitely has the looks of a performance tire, with five circumferential tread sections and four grooves to ensure water evacuation – and no hydroplaning. With an asymmetric tread design, the outside section of the tread features larger tread blocks designed to offer not just more grip, but also better support under cornering. As for the inside tread blocks, they’re slightly smaller and feature additional contours to evacuate water. These contours also work to reduce road noise.
Overall, the AZ850 is built for modern luxury crossovers that have a higher focus on performance, such as the BMW X5 or Acura MDX. The center tread rib is designed to give the tire a stable highway ride and a solid on-center feel.
Atturo says it uses a unique rubber compound for the AZ850 that’s designed to improve rolling resistance. While that term is often used to denote better fuel economy, it also applies to tire life, as tires with better rolling resistance (less friction) don’t build up as much heat and therefore last longer. That’s reassuring as the tire’s 320 UTQG rating indicates it will wear relatively fast. As no tread life guarantee is offered, we expect these to get 30,000 to 40,000 miles – which seems low until you see just how affordable a set is.
Of note, the AZ850 is available as a run-flat option, which will allow for up to 50 miles of driving (when flat) at speeds up up to 50 mph.
We should also point out that these are true supper high performance tires and not intended for use in winter or colder temperatures. They’ll really transform the grip of a modern utility vehicle in dry conditions, but when the weather changes, make sure to then swap on some more conventional all-seasons or, ideally, a set of winter tire.
Atturo AZ850 Price
The Atturo AZ850 retails for roughly $120 per tire and goes up to approximately $210 per tire, making it an extremely affordable option for a modern luxury or performance crossover.
Atturo AZ850 Warranty
The Atturo AZ850 does not come with a treadwear warranty. Of note, the AZ800 (a very similar tire) is backed by a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty. All Atturo tires are covered by a standard limited warranty. Atturo will replace any tires found to have a defect in materials or workmanship for free, if defect is found before the first 2/32-inch of tread is worn. After that wear rating, Atturo will replace the tire on a pro-rated basis. Atturo’s warranty only applies to original owners with proof of purchase. Owners must cover the cost of mounting, balancing and taxes.
