    May I ask why Bridgestone Dueler?
    I have used them before. Not impressive.
    Personally I would look at Michellin, Pirelly or Yokohama.
    Just my 2c.

    Hi Fazda,

    I have the same tyres on my Mazda BT50 (original tyres) that I bought recently, and I am going on for about 75000km's and they will need replacing soon.
    A couple of weeks ago I was at the Mountain Zebra Park near Cradock, and I was driving on some hectic rock 4x4 trails and I was quite impressed with how well the tyres worked for me.
    So I was thinking of replacing with the same.

    I do more driving on tar than on dirt.
    And I do not know much about tyres.

    If that is the tyre you want, yes, it's a good price...

    A lot of the related premium tyres are running at just over R2k.

    Hi there. If you are happy with them, then you can buy them again.
    My personal experiance is just that a tire with a square type shoulder like most AT tyres tend to look for the road if there are ruts on the tar and they are a bit jumpy on gravel roads. I prefer a soft compound with a round shoulder. Works fantastic on tar and deflated to about 1 bar on sand is perfect for me. I dont want to get more then about 50 000km on a set. I believe the harder compound that gives high km dont grip as well as soft compound. And yes I am a bit of a hoonigan if the road permits it. I drive 90% tar, so thats my personal input.

    cheers
