    May be bad luck, but my friend went from ATR to AT Plus in December on his Hilux. He lost his second tyre of them this past weekend, where he has never had it with the ATR's. The second one a piece of glass went right through it, through the thickest part of the rubber.

    Sorry to say that these tyres don’t like 75% gravel
    Lots of punctures
    45 000km - finished

    Touareg R5

    Nice soft ride, quiet on tar when new to half tread depth looks nice, okay price.
    Good for occasional off-road.

    But I think the snow capabilities was their goal on these.
    I looked up the marketing, and they mention ‘the coveted three peaks symbol’

    Again, I was hard on these tyres.
    And gravel roads here are hectic

    Hi guys, any further review to the AT Plus? Specifically at how it performs in offroad conditions. My worry is that the sidewalls are a bit too soft?

    Hi. I have done some limited rock crawling and some sand driving. Both times they performed well, also some extensive dirt road (including Karoo) and no complaints. I love the look of the tyre, and road noise is low, for now.

    It's tyre time again, been using the Pirelli Scorpion ATR..a amazing tyre, no issues... Problem no longer available, so now what to replace with?
    Is the Plus a option?

    Plus is more aggressive, but I am not complaining - not noisy at all. Slight increase in fuel consumption compared to my Yokohamas.

    I have seen more and more vehicles running them. Not many complaints that I have heard. Some say the sidewalls could be suspect, but it all depends on your application.

    Will need regular rotation because of the block pattern.

    I had the ATR before and now the new AT Plus on V6 Amarok last 22000km size 255 60 18.
    Superb tyre. Much better than old ATR on tar and off road and quiet. Slight hum on some surfaces.
    Highly recommended.

    The Pirelli ATPlus is by all accounts a very good tyre but something to consider is what type of driving you do and how strong you need the type sidewalls to be.

    I've only done 10,000km on the ATPlus after previously using Bridgestone Duellers (D694 and D697), but I'm noticing a lot of sidewall deflection on the Pirellis i.e. they're bulging a lot more than the Duellers did at exactly the same pressures. The ride is also more plush on the Pirellis which makes me this they're more compliant.

    In fairness, I haven't put the Pirellis through their paces yet so time will tell how touch they really are. The previous two sets of Duellers did trips to Richtersveld, Tankwa Karoo and many rough 4x4 routes around the Western Cape and performed exceptionally well.

    I bough the Pirellis because of reviews like this: https://www.tyrereview.com.au/pirell...ng-term-review
