    Default ADVISE - New Grabbers on Hilux Revo

    Hi Guys

    My Duelers are on their way out after +- 50000 km. Soos my een pel altyd se........."eks nou besig om die BTW uit hulle te ry".

    I've decided on the new Grabber AT3 - that's the one.

    My rim size is 265/65/17.

    I'll be doing around 75% tar, 20% gravel, and the other 5% offroad. Offroad like occasional mud, and maybe maybe rock work, but really minimal.

    Questions.......PLEASE advise

    1) I'd love a larger diameter tyre to correct the speedo, and add a bit more clearance. Can I go higher, and if so, what sizes??
    2) If no to above, I may look at an aftermarket suspension......not really keen on it, but may consider it. If so, then
    2,1) Which one?? I need comfort, not height.
    3) If a higher tyre wont fit, wont spacers at the front help with this problem??

    THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!

    265/70/17 sal pas sonder 'n lift, maar hulle is nogals duur. Ek weet nie of grabbers in daardie grote uitkom nie?

    Petri, sal graag wil hoor wat jy van die AT3's gaan dink na paar duisend kilos. Ek het AT2's op die Pajero wat nou so 40duisend kilos gedoen het en sal heel moontlik oorgaan na die nuwer tipe General toe. Dis as ek nie gespaar kan kry vir my gunsteling bande nie.

    Petri, sit 265/70R17 op, hulle sal pas
    Watter tyre - dis goeie vraag, ek verkies maar goeie AT tyre, of Muds, maar in jou geval dink ek goeie AT's sal die moeite werd wees...
    Cooper ST Max is goed, maar is nogal duur... Ek het van hulle op ons een werk bakkie gesit en is baie tevrede met hulle, goeie kilos en goeie grip...

    En onthou, met AT bande kry jy Passenger en LT(Light Truck) opsies. Met my Defender sal ek altyd vir LT gaan.

    265/70/17, soek 'n mooi AT. Ek ry Goodyear Duratrac, iets tussen AT en MT, baie tevrede daarmee.

    About the Grabber AT3s, I am very happy with mine so far, also had the first generation Grabbers and no problems at all. It's a very good all round tyre.
