    Default What tyres do you use (II)?

    Time for a new poll
    The old one can be found here
    http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...?t=4484&page=5

    If the name of your brand of tyre is not here then wait! Save your vote. Post the name in the thread and a moderator will add it to the poll.

    This is a multiple choice poll so if you have more than one vehicle/brand then add them all.

    I fitted the Michelin Synchrone 4x4 A/T replacing the awful GY Wrangler HPs on TuTix. So far I am quite impressed, given that it IS a highway-biased tyre. After approx 30000 km on the set, I still have about 75% tread left (whereas with the HPs I got only 38000), they perform well in the wet and surprisingly good in light mud. Pity Michelin discontinued the range.

    Very happy with the Maxxis MT 753. Would like to test them in Mud. I see the rain is coming again. Lekker speel in die modder n!

    Currently on BFG AT, next set will be either BFG MT or Maxxis. I have about 60 000km to think about that though Current BF's have about 30 000km on them and they still look new

    Got Kumho KL71 to replace Firestone ATX that are not so great in the wet on tar and got serious sidewall damage. I was getting to rough on them and at just over 10K km, I dumped them.

    KL71 is great all rounder, even on tar. Although very noisy. Got 25K km on already and they are holding wearing well.

    I think it will be interesting if this poll had to be closed and recreated on a year basis to see the shift or changes in brand.

    I have the Firestone Destinations on at the moment.
    Not bad tyre, but want to upgrade to bigger size.
    Probably Maxxis or similar

    Default Good Year Wranglers

    I've got Good Year Wranglers on now, but soooooooooooon they are being removed. Balancing problems since day one.

    Don't know whats going on but right now, there just doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for. 245/75/16 in a M/T.

    Really wanted the new BFG's M/T TA KM2's (but hear from Lombard that this size won't be comming in to SA).

    Kumho KL71's M/T's also no stock.

    In the past two weeks I've heard a few excuses but none beat the one, "the ships cannot travel in the sea with these big waves in the ocean".

    Funny that this thread pops up now. I have just got back from the third dealer that has tried to balance the Goodyears on the Isooz.

    Still shudders at 80 to 100 km/hr. One wheel is sitting with over 100g of weights.

    I think its time to stop being cheapskate and fit something decent on to the Isooz. I mean the Hilux is running on Bridgestones and they are 100% better.

    I have a Set of Maxxis 33" bighorns that I fit when I go play which is my first coisce in tyre, but its not my everyday tyre. Also I have the Conti's on my one Hilux and another set of the same size on my offroad trailer and a set of Cooper STTs on the other Lux

    BFG MT's all the way, have been using them for years and will still. I had Maxxix Bighorns and they suck in mud and look like ballloons when mounted. Continental cant make a offroad tire IMO.

    Bennie it is a multiple choice poll. But you have to do all your voting at one time so you dipped out.

    I'll probably be a lone voice but have recommended them repeatedly so FWIW:

    Toyo OPAT LT's

    Currently on about 110,000k's still not down to the wear indicators.
    Pro's
    1) Were reasonably priced when I bought them (not sure now)
    2) Good grip on wet tar
    3) Very quiet
    4) OK on rocks and through mud
    5) Seem tougher than other tyres (very few punctures) very stiff (strong?) side walls.
    6) Made in Japan - easy to balance etc.

    Con's
    1) Not as good in deep sand, but adequate (done Moz and Bots with only the occasional need to get the spade out and then its just a case of scooping away the build up in front of each tyre).

    I have BFG AT on the Isuzu got 90 000km on them, they still look fine think there is 20 000 minimum still on them.

    On the Jeep I have Simex jungle trekkers it is amazing how they perform in the mud. It is a pitty they dont make them anymore.
