    Default AT tyres for Sprinter 4X4

    I am taking delivery of a Mercedes Sprinter 318 CDi with Iglhaut-Alraad 4 X 4 & high rise conversion. Can anyone advise me on the best tyres to buy. I intend going to moremi , Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique.

    I have no idea what would be the best tyre for that vehicle but I saw a few of them kitted out at the Mercedes Truck Dealer in Centurion next to the N1/Old JHD Road interchange. IIRC they had BFG's on, but you can them and verify it.

    Default Iglhuat Sprinter

    But Iglhuat in Centurion closed their doors. Isn't it a bit risky to buy from a converter who is bankrupt?
    BTW the 318 Sprinter is using 50ppm Diesel! Where can you this outside Gauteng?
