Had some close to brand new Toyo Opat A/T on my 80 when I bought it. After only one decent trip where I dont cosider they got to much of a workout the edges have chipped away, in one case whole lugs ripped off. Wouldnt be happy if I had just paid for them. Oh well get 18 months out of them and try out some BFG all terrain maybe. The toyos are fairly highway oriented.
BTW if I tip every 2nd lug off the side will that make them muddys?

I did 8500k serious gibber and Arkaroola rocks with my OPATS...no problems, still look brand new. I did rip one up bad on Cape York tho, too lazy to deflate it and paid the price. The lugs are shredded. Was running 40psi fully loaded. It was the pax side rear. All the others are like new.

well there you go! Most of my damage I think was done at low speeds on limestone outcrops on the track to point culver. I was wondering if it was coz they appear to be a pretty tough compound 10 ply rating as well. I am getting a wheel alighnment ( slight feathering on sides of front tyres) and the tyre guy reckons he will have a look and give me his 10c worth

After i had a cooper disco explode on the way to Vic, I put a set of opats on my old troopy (my troopy was only used for trips), long story short got 65000Klms and then passed them onto a mate for rego after i put BFG muddies on my troopy. Still going on his hilux now after 10000klms

Cheers,
Marc.

Have to agree with the longevity. You may be right about hard compound, they don't like being overinflated but otherwise they are briliant al purpose tyres. They are not too good in mud tho
