I found they grip well, but a bit vulnerable to sidewall damage.

One of the blokes in our 4x4 club swears by Hankooks. Uses them on his Patrol as well as work ute and van etc (cabinet maker).
He reckons a lot of blokes he knows up north SA on stations use them and have the least amount of dramas with them on all the station hacks....good wear rates and fewest punctures etc.

Bob,
Are you running 265/70R16 or 265/75R16?

This mate of mine bought the latter, but they aren't real aggressive tread pattern, a tame type of A/T is how I would describe them.

G'day Bob,
Everybody I know who has a Patrol, is running 265/75s which seem to be much easier to get than the 70's.
Cheers, mate

Hi,
I am using the Hankook Z36 on my Bravo. 205R16 size.

I chose them because I heard good reports about their toughness and reasonable wear rate. They were also a good price. $148 each fitted last November.

They seem to handle OK and not significantly noisier than the original highway pattern tyres. The Z36 is not an agressive tread.

Cheers, Phil.

Mate of mine fitted a couple of mud terrain ones to his front axle (still has BFG mudders on the back). Says heaps noisier than Bfg's but heaps cheaper. Think he paid under $170 ea. They are 31/10.50R15.
Cheers

I've observed that they are relatively common on station vehicles. they use a fairly agressive tread pattern, but I've got no clue as to the name of the pattern. I reckon they are 8 or 10 ply or greater.

Good luck

We used Hankooks on 2 major trips. 2 vehicles across the Simpson and Kimberleys and 3 vehicles along the CSR. Used 235x85 10ply rating AT on Land cruisers. I reckon they are a good tyre. We had 1 puncture on the CSR trip in 12 tyres. On the other we had 2, I think due to the use of split rims and thus tubes and grit. No sidewall damage. They wear reasonably well, are quiet on road, good grip in the wet and as good as most other AT tyres in the rough stuff. And they are buckets cheaper than the Coopers and BFG's. Would happily buy them again.
