Summer tyres for all-wheel-drive vehicles are divided in different groups:
- Street Terrain Tyres
- All Terrain Tyres
- Mud Terrain Tyres
Street terrain tyres (80% road, 20% off-road use) are marked with the symbols H/T and S/T. Asymmetrical profiles are used for these tyres.
The second type of 4x4 tyre is intended for both, road and terrain (50% road, 50% terrain). In this case, the abbreviations ATR, AT2, A / T or All-Terrain are given in the tire designation.
The last type of 4x4 summer tyres are tyres for harsh terrain (80% terrain and 20% road). The abbreviations MTR or M/T are given in the names of these models.

This classification is not valid for 4x4 winter tyres.
Every 4x4 winter tyre is a street terrain tyre. This tyre division for cars with all-wheel drive offers the drivers a great choice depending on the terrain condition. What distinguishes them from typical car tyres are good handling characteristics on paths with a slight terrain character (forest and meadows) as well as on tough off-road terrain.
These tyres have been specially developed of tyres to ensure safety on both public roads and off-road. This is an ideal solution for drivers who demand optimum performance on different routes, even on the most difficult terrain. Tyres of this type, like regular car tyres, are very often equipped with a rim protection strip, which protects against mechanical damage and scratches. For this purpose, inner steel belts are also used, which reinforce the structure and make the profile deform to a lesser extent. The reinforcement of the sidewall is also introduced, which increases the load-bearing capacity - this is particularly important for SUV vehicles whose weight is significantly different from that of passenger cars. In the case of tyres of this type, the emphasis is placed on a high level of driving comfort, which is very desirable in urban and off-road driving. The tyre does not produce any significant noise and levels off-road-specific vibrations.
Some 4x4 tyre manufacturers use additional notches and a robust rubber compound, thanks to which summer tyres also maintain appropriate driving characteristics in winter. Many tyres from different segments and also 4x4 tyres should ensure good driving performance on wet roads.
Please note: 4x4 tyres are not allowed to be installed on passenger cars as they have very different profile designs and characteristics. Tyres of this type mounted on a PKW are much louder and stiffer.
