    Fitted 4 Pirelli AT Plus 265/65/17 on my Pajero Sport this morning at Tyremart Silver Lakes. R7635 all included. All Tyremart branches are running real good specials at the moment. Did get the bad news that my shocks are also due

    What size did you fit? Feedback so far on the limited time you had them?

    Looking to upgrade my Pirelli scorpions to those tyres soon.

    Apologies, amended my post. So far (literally 25km) cannot say much. They where a tad over inflated as well, dropped the pressure to normal levels. Going down to the Midlands and possibly Sani Pass so will definitely have more feedback them. I do love the look though!

    ~R10k for 5x 'General Grabber 3' 265x65 17" at Malas.

    (Still waiting for replies & quotes from some other tyre franchises in Centurion. Too late guys!)

    Need to add, the OE Bridgestone 693III was really total rubbish imo. Glad to got rid of them at ~60k km. (Where I normally get 80k-90k+ on a set of tyres)

    Ah OK. I was under the impression that the AT Plus replaces the ATR.

    regards

    Personally I will not put Coopers on again.

    Bit pricey and I have a lot of issues.
    They chip and flake.
    Rotation and then they battle to balance them (once a year wheel alignment and balancing is done).
    Got 55 000 km on them with good thread left.
    Three has side wall damage and two bad punctures in left front - one from a Drie Doring bossie in the Kgalagadi on the Echo trail.
    I would not take a long trip with the Coopers in current condition, we plan Kgalagadi/Mokale/Augrabies/Tankwa in March/April 2020
    Spoke to the Coopers guy and he was not really interested in my complains.

    I think that Grabbers would be a better choice as you can buy almost two for the price of one and it should give you a bit more mileage on the 2 x Grabbers.
    Very little difference in road holding in wet/dry and off road conditions.

    In the past I ran Wranglers for many years and none of the issues I had with the Coopers and they did the same type of work/road conditions.
    Currently in the market to replace the Coopers, think my choice will be between Grabbers and Wranglers - price early 2020 will determine which one goes on.

    At a stage I had Dunlop AT3 on my 2.5 Ranger and was quite surprised at the performance and they were dirt cheap. Only ran them 15 000 km before the 2.5 Ranger were replaced with a 3.2 Ranger.

    Just want to update something here I said.

    Just looked at my Colts tyres, they are Hankook but the LT version. They were fitted 4 or 5 years ago and still look amazing.

    I don't know why I put those ones on, I didn't even know what LT was back then. But those are the ones you want. The non LT version took major wear in the short time I had them.
