Hyundai Santa Fe 2004: Changing tyres?

Asked by Murray Evans

I would like to change the tyres on my 2004 Hyundai Sante Fe AWD from 225/70 16 HT to an A/T tyre for, say 60/40 off-road. By changing to an A/T would there be any adverse effects on vehicle handling?

The most popular A/T tyres in your size are the Goodrich All-Terrain and Cooper ATR. Both are quite good highway tyres with some off-road capability, but both are a compromise in that neither is as good on the highway as a dedicated highway tyre would be. They both have a fairly heavy block tread pattern for off-road use, and that means the on-road performance is diminished a little and they will be a little noisier.
