Recommended Sizing by Vehicle

sizing by vehicle
The weight rating for GoTreads XL and the GoTreads Standard is the same. Sizing is determined by optimal length. Larger vehicles typically means larger diameter tires. Either version of GoTreads is interchangeable across all vehicle sizes as far as weight rating is concerned.

Sizing by Tire Diameter

sizing by tire diameter
If you know the diameter of your tire, the easiest way to determine optimal GoTreads length is by that. We recommend going to the XL size when tire diameter passes 33″. This provides and additional 12″ of traction travel which is beneficial as tires increase in size and travel distance per revolution. For even larger tires, additional panels can be added to extended GoTreads further.
