Evening all,planning on replacing the tyres on our 4Runner soon and wanted any feedback on Bridgestone D673 MT.Currently running Desert Duellers 604V which we find very good but wondering wether the D673's are a tougher tyre(more cut resistant,stronger sidewalls etc).

Gday Truckster,how long have you had these?One of my mates had these fitted to his work vehicle and had worn them out by 23000kms.So far done just on 20000kms on the D/D604v and still have 75% tread left.I have also been told that there is a Jap and Aussie version of these, the Jap ones being the poor wearing ones. Cheers

35,000 on them they look like new.

Will go them again.. They aint quiet at this many klms, but then they are low on air ;) Lasy prick I am!

If not MTRs as replacements, I will go Xterrains, only cause I know bloke who owns Procomp...

The Australian made ones are the poorer wearing ones. I hve had 604v since 1988 on my troopy the Jap ones last 90000km then get put on the trailer. The aussie made ones lasted me 50000km and they were well worn at that.

I was told by a Bridhestone that the Australian tyres are only produced to fill the stock gap while the Imported tyres are on the way.

As for durability in the rough , our last trip was 55000km with 3 months in the Kimberly region and did not get one flat tyre. The secret is adjust tyre pressures according to the conditions. The 604 also balloon out well as I think they have nylon sidewalls. The steel sidwalls can delaminate if extended low pressure operation takes place.

I believe they are woth the money.

"The secret is adjust tyre pressures according to the conditions. "

I think this is the best advice ever given on the forum. No matter how often you say it, people still dont!
