    Ek is 'n groot Cooper fan. Beide my L/C 79's is op 265/75/16 ST Maxx. Min bande het 'n 3 ply sywand. Die terein waar hulde werk is klip ,sand en sekelbos... Hulle gee nie wonderlike km nie maar los jou nie sommer langs die pad nie. Ek kry so 50k uit hulle.Dit ges, 'n growwe grondpad vreet maar 'n band en as hy vrag dra soveel meer. Op die 200 L/C ry ek Yokohama Geolandar 285/75/17. Baie stil op die pad en 'n goeie all rounder na my mening. Die km op hulle is ook nie vrot nie. Ek het 'n stel Dunlop Grantreks ATG3 probeer agv beskikbaarheid. No comment...

    Ek het nou weer 'n stel Wranglers op die Jeep. Goed op die teer en in die nat, baie stil en nie te sleg "offroad" nie.

    Petri 285/75/16 = 32.8 x 11.2 wat baie naby aan `n 33" band is. Ek het gevind dat jy `n 33 soms vir beter pryse optel as 285/75/16.

    33`s vertoon maar net beter op `n 4x4 as `n 285/75/16

    Alhoewel jy nie meer 'n Patrol het nie, mag jy maar nog steeds hier gaan kyk.....

    https://www.patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=9133

    Sal 15 duim rims op die Cruiser (soos die geval met die Patrol is as die offset negatief genoeg is) pas?

    Kyk wat kos 'n 33x12.5 x 15 Sailun band by Errols op David se post - R1800 elk!!! Goedkoop !!! om Grips se stelling te staaf...

    5 x 15" nuwe wit (of dalk silwer) wiele en 5 x 33" Sailun bande sal jou goedkoper uitwerk as selfs net vier 285/75 x 16s.........

    Het onlangs my BFs vervang met Perelli Scorpion AT+. (nie ATR nie)

    Hulle vertoon baie agressief soos die BFs, maar pad geraas is beslis minder en padhou vermoe is ook n groot verbetering.

    Tyd sal leer of hulle die BFs se betroubaarheid en puncture resistance het, maar sover is hulle n wenner

    I have Pirelli Scorpions on at the moment.

    Reasonably quiet. Nice all round tyre.

    Depends how long you intend keeping the Cruiser.

    My first all round choice will always be Michelin if you are not going to do serious off road work.

    Quiet, good grip and very quiet apart from giving 100 000 plus km per set.

    Which Michelin's are you referring to? The Michelin LTX Force? I have heard good things about them from guys that use them regularly off-road - not for technical trails, more suited to overlanding.

    They are a little tame looking though

    Will do Gareth, my Buurman also has a GX with those sizes, I'll go take a quick spin some time, just want to see if the bigger (higher) tyres do not make the Car "lazy".

    Must come clean here.

    I had LTX M/S on my vehicle which has now been replaced with the newer generations.

    So my experience does not included the later versions.

    As 80% of my travel is on tar I decided to choose tyres beter suited for tar but would allow off road use as well.

    Would love to have feedback but let me not hi jack Pedri's
    thread.

    Thanks Johan

    Replaced my Cooper AT3 LT's with Michelin LTX Force, will never go back. The Michelin's have been everywhere the Coopers went, but with no sidewall cracking, warranty nonsense etc.

    I have to reply, since I don't see the tires I've driven/beaten on/abused for over 100,000 kms on with absolutely no issues.
    I run 285/75R17" which are a bit bigger, but not enough for differences.
    TOYO MT's I wouldn't buy anything else for off road.

    Errols tyres only have that size in a BFG MTR.... I would hate to have to buy a tyre in that size on a trip in Namibia or Botswana...... Closest other size to that is a 305/70 x 17 (which is 0.5mm smaller, but 20mm wider and could foul the body) and that is also fairly scarce. It is a 34" tyre, not at all a popular size.

    You could be stranded for 2 weeks waiting for a tyre delivery from SA

    I have had 3 tyres cut by sharp slate shards on the roads in northern Namibia (Kaoko-Otavi, 80km west of Opuwo) in 2 days and had to get 2 new tyres at Opuwo. Boy, was I glad my tyre sizes were the reasonably popular (265/70 x 17) tyre sizes!! I bought the only two in town.

    Excellent tyres, I had a set on my wrangler (285/70/17) 3 years some proper rock off-roading but 80% tar roads roughly 30 000km on them and still looking good...
    Sad part its being replaced by the G016 so there's no stock in the (285/70/17 g015) and also Yoko is not sure if they are going to import any..

    So I sit with 3 tyres ( rock slashed a sidewall had an "excellent spotter" right to the sharp rock) and a bfgoodrich ko on my jeep with no spare...

    I would also recommend the Yoko's, if you can get them, hardly hear them with the soft top, very good on 4x4 rock tracks, exceptional good in sand (mozi dunes and sandy roads), not so great in mud though!


    I can actually also recommend the Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 AT roughly 27 000km on them on a Grand Cherokee the 2 times I went off-roading at dewildt they actually weren't bad seeing that I have low profiles on the grand...

    So I'm also in the market my shortlist is only hybrids

    PS.......I am NOT a BFG or Cooper fan, and doubt if I will become one easily
    just" been and done that" for my efi..

    My efi is heavily loaded and has LT285/75/16 tyres and to me the load range E was important - I looked at various tyres and found that most of the cheaper tyres in LT285/75R16 size came with a Load range C rating not E rating. and those that were Load range E like Hankook Dynapro were priced similarly to Coopers etc .

    I found the following:-
    not all Load range E tyres have the same load range E ratings
    example Hawk MTR load range E- 1400kg single and 1285kg dual - speed rating Q
    Radar Renegade M/T load range E- 1450kg single and 1320kg dual - speed rating Q
    Cooper ST Maxx load range E- 1700kg single and 1550kg dual - speed rating Q

    I also found that my tyre size choice limited my selection of tyres manufacturer ( I wanted Dunlop AT3G or the Grabbers cos they were a lot cheaper and imo - a reputable brand)- there are more choices available for 265 tyres than 285
