  1. Light duty truck (0 to 14,000 pounds)
  2. Medium duty truck (14001 to 26000 pounds) 
  3. Heavy duty truck (26001 to 33000 pounds)

All these three types make up the commercial truck group. So, there are different types of tires available based on the truck type and the truck tire cost will vary which will be discussed in the next segment.

Semi-trucks include dump trucks, tractors, semi-trailers, and gravel trucks. There is also an entire separate class of tires called monster truck tire and these monster truck tires cost way more than normal truck tire cost.

Why Are Truck Tires So Expensive?

Truck tires are so expensive because they use more raw materials than passenger car tires. At the same time, the price of raw materials like rubber, steel, etc. is on the rise which leads to high tire prices. 

What Size Tire Is Best For Off-Road?

Large tires are generally preferable in off-road conditions. As a general formula make sure the wheel diameter is not more than half of the tire height for off-road vehicles. So, usually, 33-inch tires will have 15 or 16-inch wheels. 

What Is The Most Popular Off-Road Tire Size?

The most popular off-road tire size is the 33-inch tire. When converted to the metric unit, this means a tire with 285mm of width is the most popular size. Aspect ratio and rim sizes will differ from vehicle to vehicle.
