The Fortnite v16.20 patch introduced Chonkers off-road tires to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s how to get them and what they will do.
Vehicle mods have been teased for Fortnite since the beginning of Season 6. Even before that, data miners found them in the game files, so fans have known about some sort of mod for a while.
Finally, in v16.20, we saw our first vehicle mod come to Fortnite in the form of Chonkers off-road tires. We expect to see more of these come to the game in the future.
These tires, as the name suggests, will make off-roading a whole lot faster. They will impact different cars more than others, with the truck getting the most benefit from them. As a bonus, these tires allow you to scale steep surfaces you’d otherwise need to climb with ramps.
How to get Chonkers off-road tires
Chonkers tires spawn all over the map, but mostly in gas stations and garages. You can find them on the floor in these locations, or by breaking stacks of tires. Yes, that means the tires that you can bounce on.
This update also saw Sparkplug added to Catty Corner. She’ll be one of the better NPCs going forward, as she sells mechanical parts and offers weapon upgrades to players.
- Land at the southern garage in Catty Corner
- Enter the garage and fins Sparkplug
- Look around for tires that spawn on the ground
- Grab them and throw them on the closest car.
These tires aren’t too much of a game-changer, with their biggest benefit being the ability to traverse steep cliffs.
This won’t be the last vehicle mod we see added to Fortnite, however. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled when the next patch releases to see what else Epic have in store for the future of Fortnite Season 6.
