Atturo Trail Blade X/T Tire Review & Rating
The Atturo Trail Blade X/T is another hybrid design that sits in between an AT and MT tire. Built for drivers of pickups, SUV’s, crossovers and other 4×4’s, Atturo has crafted the Trail Blade XT with a cutting-edge design that features unique “knife blade” sidewall elements.
A cut and chip resistant tread compound is matched up with a unique tread pattern that features larger shoulder blocks and higher voids over those found on an AT tire, while sporting much tighter center tread elements than those on an MT tire. The results are a tire that delivers increased traction off-road, and improved performance on the street/highway.
The aggressive looking “knife blade” sidewall is modeled after Quartermaster Knives QTR-3 knife blade and handle design. However, looks are not the only thing that Atturo was after in engineering the Trail Blade X/T. The knife blade sidewall is designed to add traction when driving on rock, sand, dirt and other debris. A stronger 3-ply sidewall, on LT sizes, provides better protection against chips, cuts, tears and other damage.
Atturo has added multiple sipes over the tread to aid traction and handling in rain, snow and slush. In addition, the smaller center tread elements not only help with handling performance, but also enhance ride quality, especially on the 2-ply models.
A built-in rim protector is included to protect against damage caused by curbs and other obstacles. Atturo offers a wide number of LT and non-LT 17-24 inch sizes. All sizes come with a limited tread warranty.
- Aggressive good-looking tread design
- Off-road performance
- On-road traction and handling
- Lower cost for tighter budgets
- Road noise is similar to an MT tire
- May be hard to balance
While there are currently a number of solid performing hybrid AT/MT tires on the market like the Nitto Ridge Grappler, Cooper ST Maxx and others, the Trail Blade X/T fits right in with them in terms of looks and performance.
With a tread design that looks similar to its MT model, the XT delivers excellent traction off the beaten path. Unless you’re a hard-core off roader, you can’t help but be impressed with its overall abilities.
The addition of sipes dramatically improves grip on wet pavement, as well as snow and slush, and the tighter center pattern certainly helps with handling and road noise. That said, there is more noise than you might expect, which also tends to get louder as the tire wears. In addition, we’ve heard several drivers mention how difficult they are to balance out.
Overall, Atturo has engineered a good tire in the Trail Blade X/T for drivers on a tight budget. However, if you can extend your budget I would suggest going to a BFG or Nitto model.
