    Running Falken Wildpeak AT on the Pajero. Never have I had a problem with grip on tar or in Botswana pulling the trailer.

    Getting between 60k and 70k on a set. Less than R2k per tyre.

    I bought a 79 cruiser bakkie for my farm in the Eastern Cape in 2015. Had 18 punctures in 11 weeks with the original Dunlop Grand Treks that it came with. I bought a set of steel rims and got a set of Nankeng Mudstars for farm use which a lot of the farmers in the area swear by. Apart from one tyre that sidewall got completely ripped on a very benign looking hardwood bush, not had a single puncture with them to date.

    That said, they are not good and very noisy on tarmac. I still use the original wheels for long trips from the farm. Interestingly I had to replace all the valves as they were leaking from where they seal to the mag. So much for OEM!!
