Thread: Off road tyres

  1. #1

    Off road tyres

    The tyres on my L200 are due for renewal and I'm looking for a bit of advice if anyone can help.

    At the moment I am running on the standard tyres that come with the truck (245/65R x 17) but they are pretty useless off road therefore I am considering putting some off road tyres on. I dont do a huge amount off road but have almost been stuck a couple of times recently and want the best possible off road performance but dont want to be deafened by road noise either. I have a set of steel 16" rims with new road tyres that I could pop on if I'm going any distance. I have a couple of questions that I need to ask before I make a descision,

    - How bad is the road noise from Mud terrains compared to All terrrains?
    - What profile/width combination would you recommend? I assume the wheel is a limiting factor where width is concerned.
    -Where is the best place for a deal?

    Thanks in advance

    Another vote for bf goodrich, done over 35k and still loads of tread left, noise is ok on the road and they do the job off road.
    cheers

    I've used BF Goodrich All Terrains on hiluxes for about 5 years now, brilliant tyres, they're pretty good off road and not too noisy on the road. We used to do around 50,000 miles a year delivering fish and still needed decent tyres to access the lakeside, we used to nearly get 2 years out of them but not quite. I now run a transit which does a similar job but vans are awful off road so I put cooper STs on the back which has made it a lot better, again no real noise on the road but much better off road than a normal transit, had about 50,000 miles out of them so far and theres plenty of tread left yet.

    tyres

    I have a Navara , 17" wheels. had a lot of trouble getting an off road tyre to fit 17" . Loads of stuff for 15" and 16" ..
    Had to settle for 155x65x17 Cooper ATR ...
    Must say not a bad tyre off road , big chunky tread and seem to be hard wearing,, little to no road noise , and best tyre i have ever used on snow , you just drive as if there was no snow... I've never been stuck yet have them on a year now and i be in some crazy places....
    not badly priced rubber either..
    hope you get sorted..

    I originally wanted BF Goodrich AT's for my Pajero but couldn't find them anywhere at the time, there was some kind of stock shortage for some reason. I ended up putting on General Grabber AT2's which were a bit cheaper and they are great. Handle well on road, no road noise and grip well off road. The tread pattern actually looks almost identical to the BFG's.

    They apparently don't wear so well as the BFG's though so time will tell whether the saving was worth it in the long run, but they do the job as far as I am concerned.

    On my old landy I never put good tyres on it had to many disasters ,I use to use remoulds at 17.00 a corner from Viking tyres in Glasgow, they were hard wearing the best buy in tyres i ever got and they lasted longer than all the good quality tyres, and never had me in tears when i bought them .
