    Hi guys,

    So I got two Hankook dynapro's with 80% thread left for a steal. Unfortunately can't seem to find another pair with the same thread left. Looking to buy two new ones. My question is, with the 8spd auto and it's permanent 4wd, will it help fitting the new ones at the back without rotating them for lets say 30,000km in order to get even wear all-round, or does it wear faster in front?

    I've done sand with them in Kaokoland and had no issues. You will be fine. Air down nicely!

    Diameter: 16" with +62mm offset (62mm - 30mm spacer = +32mm)

    Problems/Issues: No issues, road noise not to bad. No difference in power or pull-away compared to my 265/65/R17 BFs, pull-away might even be better! Got bulk wheel studs from Tiger-Wheel (very cheap) for the spacers, which I had to cut flush to get a good interface between the wheel and spacer surfaces (a little bit of gasket maker in between). Tyres are running very smooth with no vibrations and road absorption is excellent. Thinking of getting set of road tyres in the same size 235/85/R16!

    Hi Ouens

    Ek het mos vir my die ultimate gekoop.
    Die man kom uit met 19 duim wiele.
    Ek kan nou n stel amarok 17 duim wiele by n pel kry.
    Watse size tyres stel julle voor. Ek wil hulle op sit as ek veld toe gaan.
    Ek kyk na General se grabbers AT 265/65/17.
    Weet nie of hulle gaan skuur.
    Ek is nie n wheel spacer fan.

    Groete

    Hi julle,

    Ek het vir my 'n 2014 Amarok 4Motion Auto gekoop en hy het 255/55 R19 Pirelli Scorpion Verde (all season) tekkies. Aangesien die tekkies nog splinternuut is wil ek nou nie onnodig nuwes opsit nie en gaan nie baie 4x4 ry nie.

    Ek wil graag Desember daai sand gaan ry by Vleesbaai en wonder sommer of iemand al sand gery het met die tyres. Wat is julle opinie oor die tyres in die sand, gaan ek sukkel?

    Groete

    Bernhardt

    Ek sit self met 19s op my bakkie... wel GB at's en die Scorpions nie... Nie seker hoeveel mense regtig vir jou direkte ondervindings raad sal kan gee van die 19s op die amarok spesifiek nie omdat meeste 17s of 18s ry en die ernstige 4x4 ouens ry verseker alaml 17s... miskien is hier iemand wat al ondervinding met die 19s het
    Ek het nog nie sand gery met myne nie. Ek het wel nou die dag 'n rustige 4x4 roete gaan ry en die 19s was glad nie 'n probleem nie...
    Ek het dieselfde probleem dat my General Grabbers nog net 1500km op het so dit voel ook bietjie onsinnig om hulle nou af te gooi en 17s te soek...

    Ek sal maar desember bietjie in die sand gaan ry en self kyk hoe hulle voel... die discos wat ook met 19s loop dink ek is baie swaarder as die amarok? nie seker hoeveel nie.
    Laat weet hoe jy die 19s ondervind in die sand as jy met hulle gaan ry het!

    Hi Willem. Neewat jy kan maar gaan, jy sal glad nie sukkel nie. Het al met n disco gegaan met generals op. Het by laaste duin war lang duin is het ons net afgeblaas 1 bar toe en opgery sonder issues.

    My probleem en dis hoekom ek vra is, die Scorpion Verde is n 80/20 band. So is nie n AT nie. Is n ongelooflike lekker band op teer en grondpad shape hy ook. Maar ek wonder oor sand?

    Ah ek sien, so die vraag is meer band gerig as grootte...

    Ek moet se ek was aangenaam veras met die generals op die trail laas naweek, die goed grip BAIE beter as die Destinations wat ek op die Isuzu gehad het...
    Sien uit na bietjie sand ry...
    Ek sien net wel dat rocksliders maar 'n belangrike byvoeging op die amarok is...

    Hallo Bernhardt

    Was in Aug saam n Auto Rok met die selfde bande op as joune by duine en hy kon saam ry waar ons ry,het partykeer 2 keer probeer maar dis pad bande aan die einde van die dag.

    Het net op n stadium afgevat na 0.5 bar vir n duin maar geen probleme en het ook glad nie afgeklim nie.

    Vir Vleesbaai met daai bande kan jy maar laat waai,sak net bietjie meer vir laaste duin,wat ek sou doen.

    Rock Sliders is ook nie alles nie. Nou op my 2de Amarok in 5 jaar. Nog nooit geskuur nie. Was op n trail waar ander geskuur het. Net my lyn verander en geen probleem nie. Het wel die Seikel lift op albei gehad.

    Dis die verskil.

    Vandat ek die Mikem lift in het, het my rock sliders amper nog nooit weer gewerk nie. Daai 35mm maak 'n groot verskil.

    As ek nou moet kies, doen ek eerder die lift as die rock sliders.
