- Goodyear Wrangler A/T
Goodyear also offers it all terrain tyre called the wrangler A/T. Having deep grooves and a good amount of traction. The performance of the wrangler is very nice, but its life on tarmac is not satisfactory although the Wrangler is snow rated.
- JK Tyre Ranger A/T

- Continental CrossContact A/T
Continental is a well-known brand for its premium segment tyres. Continental also offers A/T tyre known as the Continental CrossContact A/T.
