I just fitted a set of BFG M/T. Previously i was running Dunlop Grandtrek A1.
If anyone out there is thinking about going from A/T to M/T and has any concerns about the noise, don't worry. There is only a slight increase, nothing drastic at all.
They handle lot better than i anticipated. Fitted By Bob Jane boys in Karratha.
Top service. Can't wait to test them in the scrub, once it stops rainning.
This cyclone here is dumping some major rain in the Pilbara.
Cheers

The new BFG Mud's have computer designed lugs that are different sizes thus less noise than the prior model.

I have down about 25000 on mine (20000) through the top end and could not be happier. These were recomendeed by Peter at Spinning Wheels & Tyres at Wolloomooloo.

G'day Goran,

At 400km's, the noise factor with your M/T's hasn't kicked in yet - you probably wont notice the noise until you start getting up around the 40,000 km mark and from then on they will get noisier along with the increased wear to the shoulder lugs. I found that I had to religously rotate the muddies every 5,000 km's to keep the shoulder wear under some sort of control, but still the noise persisted - that's the nature of chunky lug tyres.

You should be out playing in the mud now - that's the best thing about cyclones, the mud.

Diesel, at around 40.000km noise would not bother me. Anything over 40.000 out of the set of any 4WD tyres is a bonus to me.
Mud is fine, but i don't like chopping the roads up. Our roads around here are bad as it is.

G'day Steve,
Not too sure at this stage if I will still be in Darwin in August/Sept - I'm fighting an insurance company over workers comp matters and I guess it all depends on how soon we come to an agreement.

If I,m still here I would certainly like to catch up - there wont be much mud to play in with it still being the dry season, but I can show you around a few places that most tourists never get to see.

G'day Goran,
I certainly don't advocate chopping up the roads, but you must be busting to get out there and put the muddies to the test.
