    What about Hankook Dynapro?

    Fitted them to my Fortuner a while back after having endless problems with the standard Grabers. I am VERY happy with them! Spend about 80% on road.

    I went to Continental 3 times with the Grabbers and got them changed on all 3 occasions. After lengthy fights I got them to credit me for two tyres. I was VERY hesitant at first but liked the look of the Hankooks, the branch manager at the shop I fitted them had them on his Cruiser and raved about them so I thought they couldn't be worse than the Grabbers.

    The are far less noisier than the Grabbers on tar, better in the wet, feel better whilst cornering and seem to have solved the off road handling issue.

    Hi Tazz,

    Have a Hilux that do 99% tar, after the Grabbers done 78 000 km I replaced it with Michelin LTX AT2. Although they have done only 10 000 km, another Hilux went with us last year on a trip to Tanzania (also 10 000 km) without any hassles. Up to now I enjoy them. Very quiet and, although not scentific, it seems to me that the Hilux do 0,5 km/lt better with them.

    Hi all.

    After much debating on my wheel choice I went with old faithful BF.
    I fitted 31x10.5x15 a perfect fit with no mods needed .
    Got them for R1,650.00 at Exhaust & Tyre City Menlyn the cheapest I could find in the PTA region.

    I'm going down to CT on Monday and will be back by Friday so I will give full feedback on handling and fuel consumption.

    Does anyone have recommended tyre pressure for:
    Empty
    Full Load
    Towing
    Because my manual only gives specs for 245/75/15?

    Thanx all for the input
