    The wranglers are great tyres for most use.Did not take them on serious offroading but had a set on the 2.5 and the 3.2,really soft ride and quiet.
    It seems the new velocity raptors are also a good buy.They both seem however to give around 50-60000km on a set,depending on use i suppose.I like the look of the wrangler a bit more than the raptor

    My first set were 267/75/16, and I replaced them with 265/70/16 on my 2.5, no issues with either, apart from a minor (very, but I swear I could feel it) performance increase going down in size.

    My Triton is due for full set replacement, so I'm looking for best value for money. I think I will go for the Wrangler ATSA's. Got a price just now; 245's R1340 and 265's R2150. I just don't know if the price difference values the tiny lift one get??

    Thats a steep price difference.Check the velocity raptors.They have a huge special on them.Could get 265/65/17 for R1700 per tyre

    Sal kleiner gaan vlg keer 265/70.
    Klein verskil in lift is nie die geld en rygerief wat jy inboet op die teer werd nie.

    Here is some feedback. I fitted 4x 235/85 Hankook Dynapro ATs in September last year. Since then I have have done about 14,000 km with them. My fuel consumption increased somewhat, but I still average about 10l per 100km if I keep my speed below 120km/h (true speed). In my opinion the extra ground clearance that I have gained is definitely worth the slight increase in fuel consumption.

    I must add that I am very happy with the Hankooks. They are very quiet on tar and I was impressed with their performance in the sand at Brakkeduine. I have also toured the Wild Coast and the Tankwa Karoo during the December holiday without any punctures.
