If you want to walk the line between a nice daily drivable tire and a solid off-road option, the Wild Peak AT Trail is a good tire. Not to be confused with the Wild Peak AT3W, the AT Trail provides a wide range of stock-friendly sizes and a comfortable drive. This tire is perfect for anyone who wants to tackle gravel roads, mellow dirt trails, and even mild snow. The aggressive siping creates fantastic off-road traction and great wet pavement grip.
As previously mentioned, AT Trail can take on dirt roads, gravel, and mild trails easily. It also handles wonderfully on pavement. However, this tire shines most notably in mild conditions. It is designed to be a well mannered tire that can still be taken off the pavement. If you’re looking for something to take on more advanced trails, please note that the sidewall isn’t strong enough to withstand abuse from sharp rocks. I have personally helped two people swap tires on the trail after sidewall failure. We absolutely love this tire but a person needs to have the right expectations with it and drive it accordingly.
One other thing to consider about the AT Trail is that it does not have very large voids or overly aggressive tread blocks. This makes for a more comfortable pavement experience, but they will not perform optimally in muddy conditions or on slick rocks.
This tire is a great option for the Crosstrek owner who wants to swap their tires for an almost stock replacement, but still wants aggressive looks and basic off-road capability without losing fuel economy and power.
