    Lightbulb All terrain tyres

    Morning all, I have a 96 2.8td lwb which i recently brought back to sa. Currently it has what are classed as dual terrain tyres for Europe which although still in great condition with low milage but I fear they are not suitable for the SA climate. Have been looking at alternatives on-line but would like advice on what members think would be suitable. Have looked at Bridgestone D7697's and Yoko a/t G015's.
    Travel on tar vs dirt (all kinds) is probably 50/50. Also tow an off road trailer which currently has 15" Continentals which I believe are no longer available.
    All advice greatly appreciated
    Ian

    Any of the standard brands available from places like Tiger Wheel and Tyre or Tyremart or Malas would be appropriate.

    Very few bad tyres in our shops, so I'd say first look at your budget and then buy.

    I'm running a very nice AT tyre from Tiger Wheel and Tyre called the Velocity Raptor A/T

    Good in the wet, good longevity, excellent price. No punctures in 30,000kms. I do around 6kms of bad dirt farm road a day. So about 3,000kms of bad dirt on those tyres already.

    The bridgestones or yokos would be fine. Don't bother with Coopers or BFG unless you just like spending money.

    Hi Ian,

    There have been a couple of A/T-tyre group tests and shootouts this year, their results are obviously open to different interpretations, and dependent on what your applications are, but two that have really stood out in terms of performance and price are the Goodyear Wrangler A/T Adventure tyres, and the General Grabber AT3 tyres.

    Good luck!
