IF your happy with the tires you have, then get them again.

If your doing 90/10 then dont bother with AT's just stick with HT's...

Give Locky a call if you want new, They have heaps of options, Xterrains are good dual purpose, more off than on road
He also sometimes has tradeins

Truckster,

If he is replacing the original tyres Dunlops, they would cost a fortune. The reason I said a all terrain tyre is the extra deepth of tread and open pattern. Much better in the wet.

Specially if hes not going offroad, would get more out of HT's..
