Best All-Terrain Tires for Ford Bronco
There’s definitely not a shortage of all-terrain tires you can fit on a Bronco, but our top choice for true off-road enthusiasts is the BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2. Offering world-class off-road grip like few all-terrain tires do, it’s fantastic on dirt, trail and rocks and out-performs in mud too. It’s just a durable as well, with a tread compound that resists chunking and sidewalls that are 20 percent thicker to protect against punctures.
A close runner-up is the Toyo Open Country AT III. This third generation version of the tire diverges from past models with a hard push into the extreme off-road, with a vastly more aggressive tread pattern and compound.
Offering more on-road driving dynamics (particularly in the wet) the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar also offers a longer tread life of 60,000 miles. It’s still quite impressive off-road and the Kevlar-reinforced casing makes it amazingly durable.
Another strong choice is the Bridgestone Dueler AT REVO 3. This tire is again designed more for extreme off-roading and does admirably, while delivering better on-road grip. It’s not at the top of our list, but if there’s a current deal or offer, we could be convinced.
Yokohama offers two very different options. The Geolandar AT G015 is geared much more towards on-road grip, performance and noise levels. That might not sound very attractive, but if you’re not planning to do a lot of off-roading, or anything too extreme, it’ll definitely get you by and will be easier to live with the rest of the time. The second Yokohama choice is the Geolandar X-AT, a more extreme offering that’s almost in the mud-terrain category. In fact, in many ways it is a mud-terrain tire, with it’s massive tread lugs and plenty of voice place. However, it’s surprisingly quiet (for an MT) and actually comes with a 45,000 mile warranty.
Finally, for those on more of a budget, we’d recommend the Hankook Dynapro AT2. It’s not quite in the same class as the rest of these tires, but for the money represents impressive value.

Tire Buying FAQ
Where can I find the best price on tires?
There is no one answer to this question unfortunately. Sites like Tire Rack and Discount tire offer deals all the time on specific brands. You can also find deals on Amazon though they are much harder to find and often only apply to a specific size or group of sizes. Visit our Tire Deals page for more info.
When is the best time to buy tires?
It’s common that many shoppers buy tires once its already too late. At that point you don’t have a lot of choice and can often over-pay. If you’re planning ahead, generally, retailers offer significant tire deals around major holiday weekends (especially in the summer), as well as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
How much is Shipping?
Shipping is often included when you purchase tires online. Many retailers offer free shipping if you get your tires shipped to an installer that they recommend. Even if you ship to your home, Tire Rack offers free shipping on purchases over $50. And if you’re buying new tires, that won’t be hard.
How long does shipping take?
Shipping can take just a few days, or over a week in the worst cases. Often it depends on where you live. anyone in a larger urban center or living closer to a tire distribution center can get them quite quickly.
Does anyone offer mobile tire installation?
Depending on where you live, there may be numerous local mobile tire installers available. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of tracking one down, TireRack offers its own service. You don’t even have to purchase tires from TireRack to use it.
While it’s more expensive than bringing your tires to the shop, it’s also a lot more convenient. Prices start at $25 per tire.
How much does it cost to install a tire?
Generally you’ll pay between $25 and $50 per tire for installation services. This includes mounting and balancing, while using the latest tools so your rims don’t get scuffed or scraped.
Do I need to replace the tire pressure monitoring system when I change tires?
It’s not necessary to replace TMPS sensors when you change tires, but you may want to consider it. The units can fail over time due to damage or corrosion. Also, most units contain a battery and as a sealed unit, they must be replaced when the battery wears down. While most tire installers will handle sourcing these parts for you, you can also buy your own here.
Do online tire retailers offer rebates?
Absolutely! In fact, rebates are offered by most brands (even premium ones). Often these incentives are offered with other deals including up-front discounts and credit card offers.
