    Default What tyre to pick for bt50?

    Hi all I have to replace my tyers before the Des holiday travels.
    MAZDA BT 50 2.2 SLE d/c
    Looking at A/T tyers 265/65/R17
    95% Tar 5% dirt

    I have been shopping around and got the following option local.

    Hankook Dynapro AT R2400
    GT RADIAL ADV AT R1600
    DUNLOP AT 25 R1100
    GENRAL GRABBERS R1750
    KHUMO AT R1850

    What would be the best price vs value?

    Any other brands?

    Thanks.

    I had Grabbers in that size and its a great tyre, its slightly more aggressive and more a 60% tar 40% dirt tyre. If you can source Yokohama tyres you can try the Geolandar G015 tyre aswell, gives great mileage, quiet on the road and is about probably a 70/25 split tyre

    How are the General Grabbers on tyre munchers (Karoo gravel and the likes, where sidewalls are eaten for breakfast)?

    It is not 3 ply side wall and I have lost 2 due to side wall cuts. But they will not necessarily be worse that other AT at a similar price. What does the new GY Wranglers go for, do they not have a stronger side wall?

    Firestone destination - one of the most underrated tyres IMHO
    Also very well priced usually
