32-Inch UTV Tire Buyer’s Guide

Best desert tire on the market

A few years ago the 32-inch UTV tire was something you would only find on lifted vehicles deep in the swamps of Louisiana or East Texas. While the swamps are still going strong with massive mud machines, the big-bore UTVs have grown and so have the tires. In just a few short years the 32-inch tire has grown to be king in the desert—and with good reason. The new big-bore machines now offer plenty of pulling power and incredible improvements in ground clearance. Another unspoken benefit Is the improved comfort with the increased rollout as the larger tire covers rougher ground. Where there once was only a few, now there are many! We found 15 desert-driven 32-inch tire options for your big-bore UTV. Check them out!
