My son run MT117 on his GQ and they are awesome off road and behave surprisingly well on Road for what are Mud tyres. On how long they will last we do not know. The MT117 extreme's are much less aggressive

If you are in perth, go check out the tyre bloke around the corner, but in the same building as Michelles Sacs. Hes running them on his 80 and is stoked with them, saying they are excellent for rock and mud work and quieter and more predictable on road than BF Muds.
Apparently their only drama is they dig down really well in sand.

(for the record, he sells BFs and the full range of offroad brands, so he had nothing to gain from the plug he gave them)

Is he running the mt117 extreme or the mt117 sports? the sports are more like bfg mudders. the extremes look similar to simex jungle trekkers or centipedes, so they are quite aggressive

They didnt look too similar to BF muds- they had larger spaces between tread blocks and the blocks themselves were larger- thats what made them stand out from any other tyre on a 4by.

Having just checked the website they are the 117 sports- certainly more aggressive than muds.
117 sport

If you do get yourself a pair, let us know how they go- after hearing they had 3-ply side walls im keen on a set myself.

The tread pattern works well, but the sidewall may be only marginally stronger than a Cooper or BF, but for the price, compared to other extreme tyres, they seem to be the goods.

We are the Geelong/Western Vic dist for these particular tyres.

Hey Timbobaroobob,

I have just worn out a set of the Silverstone MT-117 Extremes on my GQ Patrol and they have done 50,000 km's which I don't think is too bad. Good tyre off-road and no problems on wet bitumen either.
Good luck,

Brett
