    Default Worn tyres after 30.000 km

    Hi!

    I had to buy new tyres after less than 31.000 km with my former AT tyres. Foton Tunland 4x4, 90 % on road, steep mountain road with many and very close curves, and 10 % on trail, 4x4 (gravel and rocks, and mud in rainy season). I drive “conservatively”. What do you think about those tyres?

    Thanks for your input.

    They should have lasted longer. Even Cooper AT3 should give you 50,000km with that usage.

    Mmmmm, 90% steep mountain roads with lots of sharp corners.

    That’s an extremely tough ask of a tyre.

    Any tyre.

    When I read threads like this I almost expect someone to mention something bad about BF's within the first couple of posts. Now I get it, BF's have a pretty bad reputation for years already, at least probably as long as I've been here on the forum.

    I'm on my third set of BF's and had to think long and hard when I had to change tires again only very recently. I have to admit, I'm a happy customer, probably just lucky I suppose.

    Thanks you all who answered. I haven’t return to the forum because I didn’t come here every day, and also to allow sufficient time to get your answers.

    When I wrote my post, I forgot an important element of the problem: speed. On the road, its geometry makes you drive slowly (35-40 km/h), and on the trail it is worst: 10-15 km/h because of the steep terrain, narrow and winding way, and possibility to find people on foot or on horseback.

    Well, I didn’t state what brand of tyres I had. It was a trick, because I expected the “normal” reaction (“Oh, Chinese tyres”) that maybe I would have had myself. But I changed the original highway tyres for an A/T set, Hercules Terra-Trac made in USA.

    So, do you have new ideas? Thanks for your opinions.

    The only idea if have, is: DON'T BUY THE SAME BRAND AGAIN

    Only on 10 000km with my BF’s. Very happy. The KO logo on the tread is not even worn off.

    You won't be disappointed with the bfs, don't worry. The BF haters are either people who cant afford them, or who bought them for the look, when an HT tire would suit their use far better....
