I need to get new tyres for my Triton soon. Any suggestions? Looking at a combination on road/off road tyre. Currently have 265/70 16 desert duelers, but this time around I'm a bit strapped for cash. What lower cost alternatives are there?

Cheers

Louie

I bought some Kuhmo Road Venture's in 285/75r16 for when there isn't enough mud for my Federals, and I reckon they're a great tyre.
They were only $275 each and so far it's all been good.

I was in a similar situation and put on Hankook RF10 Dynapro AT's. I'm really happy with them and will be putting them on again.

G,Day Louie.
I've always used Bridgestone Allterain on all my travels off road and the Black stuff and never had any trouble, we are about to travel up north again for 4 months , We did the Tanami last year from Halls Creek to Alice Spring without a problem never try and go for a cheaper brand, Life is more important than the almighty Dollar. That is my comment but it is up to you to decide
Good luck on your travels. Regards " H "

Hi Louie,

i have seen lots of suggestions about the Bridgestone tyres. I know one of the Bridgestone guys very well and when i asked him about putting these on my Landcruiser, he offered some different advice.
He suggested i go for the Firestone a/t instead. They supply to a very large quarry who have been using the bridgestone for years. They tried a set of these firestone's and now won't use anything else. Mine have been excellent on and off road, have not got a lot of road noise and are priced much better than their Bridgestone brothers.

Well worth a look for anyone,

Are the ratings similar Nellyjr (important for loads, speeds and towing), and any idea how long they'll last?

Not for me I just put BS D697s on, but for others approaching replacement time.

I will get the details for everyone and post them but it might be a week or so as My landcruiser is in getting some prep work done for a Flinders trip.
I belevie these are very comparable with the higher priced Duellers etc, so far they seem to be lasting very well, and the Quarries swapped to thse for a better grip and wear apparently?

will provide rest of details once i get the old girl back,

Hi Louie
I have a RA Rodeo Dual Cab and have been running 751 Maxxis Bravo's on mine
They have done 50K and I reckon I have approx 40K left in them.
They cost me $198.00 each fitted and they have done a great job.
Pretty economical motoring and not an single problem with them

Thanks everyone for the replies. I see a couple of people mentioned Maxxix. I had Maxxis on my Adventra and they seemed fairly good value for money. A mate has put Nankang on his Triton (a newer model) and he's happy enough with them so far. I got quoted $187 each for them, and $210 for Silverstones. Have to make a few calls on Tuesday. I'll have a look at the Maxxis and a few others.

Damn, tyres for 3 cars all within a month of each other.

cheers

I've had Maxxis tyres before, and these were quite good on and off road . . .

Good value.

Next set I want a little more aggressive AT for offroad, so am looking at . . .
