Who is VENOM POWER?
Sometimes the big tire names like BFGoodrich and Toyo Tires get all the attention (which is fair, they’re great), but it doesn’t allow some of the upcoming brands to get the love and recognition they deserve. We definitely think VENOM POWER is about to make a big splash in the automotive enthusiast community. With that being said, here’s everything you need to know about VENOM POWER tires.
Before we get into the details of what VENOM POWER offers, let’s talk about who they are. VENOM POWER is a brand owned under TRANSAMERICA TIRE CO. They own several private brands, including VENOM POWER, and are one of the fastest-growing marketers of the tires industry.
TRANSAMERICA TIRE CO. offers products lineups for a variety of applications including
- Summer tires
- Winter tires
- Hybrid Tires (all-terrain & mud-terrain)
- Mud tires
- Performance tires
So, it’s pretty awesome that VENOM POWER produces a variety of tires that are tailored to a multitude of driving needs. Designed with quality, safety, and value in mind, VENOM POWER tires have the ability to tackle rough terrain or cruise down the street while delivering durability, a long tread life, and an aggressive look.
Where are VENOM POWER Tires Made?
Their development experience and corporate offices are located at their headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. However, their manufacturing is outsourced to China, which is true about many aftermarket parts. Honestly, it’s true about most of your household items, so don’t knock them for it.
What Does VENOM POWER Sell?
Now that we’ve covered the introduction of who VENOM POWER is, let’s get into three lineups by this brand that are by far the most popular, best-selling tires. These three tires are the VENOM POWER Terra Hunter M/T (mud-terrain tire), VENOM POWER Terra Hunter R/T (hybrid tire), and VENOM POWER Terra Hunter X/T (hybrid tire).
Is the VENOM POWER Terra Hunter X/T Good?
First up, we’re going to take a look at probably the most popular tire by VENOM POWER, the Terra Hunter X/T. This mud and all-terrain tire has widespread tread blocks toward the outside of the tire which allows for maximum grip on hard terrains like mud and rocks. This, mixed with large tread voids allow for the evacuation of dirt, water, and mud to prevent buildup and deliver more traction.
A common complaint with mud tires is that they produce a lot of road noise, however with center blocks that are closer together, the noise is pretty minimal. From our experience, it’s pretty quiet until about 35-40 mph, and even after that, it’s way more tolerable than other mud tires.
One of the best things about this tire is its sidewall. Sometimes hybrid tires will fall short in this department, however, the sidewall and tread are both aggressive on the X/T. It’s got angled-biters along the sidewall for enhancing traction and delivering a big, bulky look.
With growing sizing options and a 50,000-mile treadwear warranty, the Terra Hunter X/T is going to find itself on top of the leaderboard for on or off-road tires because of VENOM POWER’s dedication to designing tires for all driving experiences.
Is the VENOM POWER Terra Hunter R/T Good?
Next up, we have the VENOM POWER Terra Hunter R/T. This rugged-terrain tire is similar to the X/T with its capability to handle various types of terrain and deliver on-road performance as well. To separate itself from other tires, the Terra Hunter R/T features a more square tread width for uniqueness.
On top of a deep tread depth and dual sidewall designs for tackling all conditions, the Terra Hunter R/T also features a high void ratio to channel water, slush, mud, and snow in order to prevent hydroplaning and add more grip. Its siping across the tread help with traction in the rain and snow too. Also, to prevent damage, its got polyester cord and steel belt construction to avoid punctures and stone-ejecting ribs to prevent stone retention.
This tire delivers great controllability as well. The tread shoulder block sequence ensures consistent contact with the terrain at all times, which helps improve steering responsiveness and stability.
All in all, the Terra Hunter R/T is a great choice when it comes to a durable, all-weather traction tire that looks great and performs even better.
Is the VENOM POWER Terra Hunter M/T Good?
Lastly, we want to talk about VENOM POWER’s mud tire, the Terra Hunter M/T. This tire is made with a tough, rubber compound that boosts its strength and durability. This is important in a mud tire because the need to protect itself from damage is crucial when you’re exploring some uncharted terrain.
Plus, to add extra protection to the casing, the Terra Hunter M/T has self-cleaning grooves that force out mud, dirt, rocks, and anything else you might encounter to guarantee good traction at all times.
This tire will add aggression to your build with its large tread blocks that also help deliver grip in loose sand and mud. It also helps with this through staggered shoulder lugs. Plus, like the Terra Hunter R/T, the Terra Hunter M/T has dual sidewall designs.
How Much Do VENOM POWER Tires Cost?
When it comes to pricing, VENOM POWER has pretty reasonable prices considering how carefully crafted their tires are. They wrap up performance, durability, and look all in one badass tire, so the fact you can get the Terra Hunter X/T for as low as $690/set is pretty wild. Obviously, you’ll expect to pay more for bigger sizes.
Also, Terra Hunter R/T and Terra Hunter M/T start a little higher, at $899 and $1066, respectively. Still, it’s not outrageous by any means. Plus, our partnership with Affirm allows you to finance your tires and make easy monthly payments.
