Gallery: Federal Tires Xplora R/T

Get a peek into Federal Tires’ Xplora R/T ride-and-drive in Big Bear Lake, California.


Federal Tires invited tire distributors, dealers and members of the media to a launch event at Big Bear Lake, California, to test out its new rugged-terrain tire, the Xplora R/T.


To put the tire to its limits, event participants drove on a variety of light truck vehicles outfitted with Xplora R/Ts on an on-road drive around Big Bear Lake, and on an off-road course on the dirt trails of the Holcomb Valley. Scroll down to see some action shots from the event.

The Xplora R/T, which took around four years to develop, is a hybrid design between an all-terrain and mud-terrain tire.
