We're relocating to Tassie from Perth this year and will be going there the long way - across the top and down the east cost, zigzagging of course to see all the highlights.

Before we head of I'll be getting a new set tyres Cooper, BFG, Goodyear undecided at this stage.

Question is - When I arrive in Tassie am I going to wish I had purchased at set of muddies instead of AT's (which I'm thinking of). Is the bulk of the 4wdng going to be on mud and dirt or is that just my Mainlanders view of Tassie - Always wet?

Regards
Andrew

Gday Andrew,no its not always wet down here,as with anywhere it could be wet one day dry the next week!As for tyres I'd go for AT's,sure you can find really boggie tracks but the bulk of the time you'd get away with AT's.Ive got Desert Duellers on our 4 Runner and they handle everything with ease,done 17000kms on the Big Island last year ,no probs either.
Where abouts in Tassie are you relocating to?

Hi Andrew.
We had a trip away with the Bradden 4WD club out of Burnie afew years ago. Either Tyre would be fine, where our vehicles let us down was we had too much gear in them. It was interesting to see how light they travelled and when we were with them it was obvious that the less weight got them through the marshes easier. If you are after a 4WD club they are great. Email us of line for info
