Once you've found some Fortnite off-road tires, you need to pick them up which will use one slot in your inventory.

With Fortnite off-road tires equipped to modify your vehicle you can maintain good speed over grass and other terrain, drive over the top of pretty much any obstacle that stands in your way, and even motor up near-vertical cliffs as long as you drive into them head-on. Now get out there and enjoy your new motoring freedom!
