When it comes to choosing the best tires for your work van, you most likely are going to look for tires that can do well off-road, how much weight the tires can handle, and how safe the tires are. This blog is here to help you find the right set of TreadWright cargo van tires for your vehicle.
The Most Common Cargo Van Tire Sizes
The best tires for Chevy Express, GMC Savana, and Ford Econoline vans come in some of these most common tire sizes:
TreadWright carries all three aforementioned sizes (and much more), and the specs for each tire are available to view so that you can make the best selection for your vehicle based on the type of work you do. For example, the TreadWright AT ATG tire comes in a size 235/75 R15 and is a great fit for many Ford E-series vans. This All Terrain tire is built with full-grade truck rubber to help resist stone drilling and gravel damage. The tread on this particular tire is heavily siped for solid traction on both wet and dry surfaces. This is a good tire for vans that need to traverse construction areas or similar terrain.

Mud Terrain Vs. All Terrain Cargo Van Tires
For the remaining popular tire sizes, you have the choice between Mud Terrain and All Terrain. All TreadWright tires are built to withstand tough terrain, but it is up to you to decide if you need the extra traction and deep tread that Mud Terrain tires can offer. Keep in mind that All Terrain tires tend to last a bit longer than Mud Terrains simply because they do not usually have to traverse extremely rough terrain that Mud Terrains are built for.
Mud Terrain Choices for 225/75 R16
The following tires are the same type of tires, size and all. However, the blemish tire is cheaper due to the physical appearance being slightly off. Blemish tires are a great choice for work vehicles and owners who are not concerned with appearances since the tires work just as well as normal and at a cheaper cost. Buying these types of tires in bulk for your work fleet can save you a lot of money.
Warden MT II Specs
Tread Depth: 16/32”
Tread Width: 7”
Max PSI: 80
Max Load: 2,680
As you may have noticed, the Warden MT can carry more weight and has a much higher max PSI than the All Terrain tires. The trade-off is that you will get less mileage out of these types of tires. This is why it’s important to pick the right tire for the type of work you do.

TreadWright Tires Size 245/75 R16
The last Treadwright cargo van tire size we will be discussing comes with both All Terrain and Mud Terrain options. This is a larger and typically heavier tire size, but large tires are great for larger vehicles as the weight is distributed more evenly. A wide tread is needed for larger vehicles for stability and even wear.
