Do off road tires wear out easily?

I got a jeep wrangler and it has off road tires. one of them is dead and cant be repaired. i want to know if it would be a better investment to replace that one tire, or get 5 new "on road" tires.

    Off road tires have deep tread made of super soft rubber for lots of bite. I’ll bet if you look at the side wall of these tires you’ll see no UTQG rating. The higher the number after the letters UTQG the longer the tires last. Snow, race, tractor, go-kart tires have no wear rating either because it would scare everyone away from buying them.

    If you switch to regular tires again you won’t have to put up with that awful tread howl when you drive down the road.

    depends on how much tread is left on the other 3. usually you can find a tire shop that sells used tires with good tread for around 20 bucks. if they are close to being wore out then yea invest in new ones.

    off road tires wear at a faster rate than street tires….. y because they have more gapes between the treads thus putting more stress/wear on the treads……

    u can get street tires and replace the 1s on ur jeep…. if u never use it for off-roading anyway this is probably a good idea since it will give u better life and improve on-road handling

    wud suggest getting a 80k or so tire if u do get6 streat tires to make it worth the trouble…..good luck

    Most off roaders do 80% street use, the off road tires on your Jeep should be matched to your needs. If you have a Jeep to LOOK like an off roader then get better street tires. if you actually go off road then move down the scale into more off road treads.
