    I think I'm on my 3rd thorn puncture.

    however, the grip on rock, sand, and mud is really good.

    Thumbs up Re: new tyres - Powertrac Power RoverM/T

    Some feedback from My side......purchased a set of 35"- Over the weekend we done Moegatle 4x4: Running tyre pressure at 1 Bar, overal the tyre performed extremly well, done 2 terror obastacles, Klipdrift as well as Koos se Klim, both obstacles done with success tyre grip was above my expectations.......done similair obstacles with BF Goodrich and resulted in blocks chipping and breaking, these tyres showed no chipping or breaking of blocks.

    A very good tyre and a very good price.........thumbs up......

    I do think that there will be a market for 18" MT as a lot of manufacturers are fitting 18" tires as standard.

    I will take a set for my Ranger if they bring them in, in 18"

    Yes, but not many vehicles that warrant that size tyre, are serious enough offroaders to warrant this specific MT tyre.
    Its economics. Most of your MT users are sitting between 15" to maybe 17" steelies. The rest are on mags, and on vehicles that can hardly benefit from MTs as they never go to extreme enough places.

    Besides that, by the time you do find someone that is an exception to the above, they can afford more expensive rubber, and probably won't be seen dead with these cheapies.

    Interesting points but I do not totally agree, my previous vehicle was a JKU with 35" BFG MT's on 17" Mick Thompson's with a suspension as well as a body lift and I have done my fair bit of off roading and thus have seen the benefits of MT vs AT in different environments. Personally I would run MT over AT anytime but availability is limited factor hence I am relegated to AT's, and well if a can save a couple of $$ why not .

    PS: The "Garden Service" (double cab) brigade also do a bit off roading, but yes I cannot go up and into places now that I could with the Jeep, but I would love the added traction any day!!!

    Chris I hear you. I thought it was overkill when I first went onto MT's, but I have to say they are still the best tyres I ever had on my vehicle for tar or offroad use.

    My post was a bit tongue in cheek, sorry. I do however feel that 18" rims are already getting too big, for the, probably, max 33" rubber that the "normal" vehicles can handle. But that is my feeling/opinion, and I have very often been totally, and very wrong.

    But I have my eye on these babies for my Hardbody/Sani. I like my MT's, and I find the HT's I have now, to be a total disaster on tar, and even more so off road. My biggest problem is affordability of any other make in a 35x12,5,15. The tyres I would really like, is going to set me back around R20K.

    I believe that Sidestep on the forum stocks the Radar Renegade and Maxxix in 18". Same guy I got my Powertracs from.

    Very happy so far with these tyres.

    Road noise is much less than I anticipated, and driving in the rain yesterday I can report that they grip very well in wet conditions!
