    Default 285/75R16 Muds, which one should I go for??

    I need to get a set of 285/75R16 muds.

    A good price is my biggest consideration, but I also don't want something that will deflate when it sees a thorn bush.

    In the past I've had GY MTR's(3 sets), Cooper STT's(2 sets), Kumho 834's and recently BF KM2's.

    What can you guys recommend?

    Where can I get the best prices?

    Ek wag nog vir ATS om terug te kom na my oor my 35"/37" query.

    Die MTZ is nogal duur, meer as KM2's....en ek koop eerder KM2's in daai geval.

    I would get Cooper STT again if I could, personally. Had them on my previous Jeep and I liked them, a LOT.

    They are better looking than most, nice and agro!
    Best installation prices I would find in JHB was at Dunlop Rivonia - 011 803 8968

    To compare apples with apples, get the costs first and then decide. Aint a fair fight if apples are up against melons...

    Barto , 834s are discontinued.......sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew so much to choose from, all excellent tyres, but as you know i am a Kumho man KL 71....value for money....lots of guys are turning to this. All the negative bull dust never materialised.

    The wider base of the tyre seems to give the D/C more traction than the rounded tyres.....
    It would make your recoveries much easier as well
    The noise issue is over, my radio with the 834s was on no# 37 now 17. They are still new.

    I would be very weary of Coopers. They ALL cause the vehicle to pull to the left. You can rotate as much as you like. They did it on my Isuzu (31's) and on my cruiser (32's). Never again but I will say they work wonders offroad.

    As I've said before-the tread differs from left to right,you need to change the tyres 'inside out' you can feel the difference especially on tar with speed.

    I'll stick to Cooper, no pulling to left of stuff like that.

    If considering price is your thing, Federal Couragia.

    Assume that you have a one-on-one visit with your Creator quarterly. Now live accordingly.
