G'day Ian, I don't use anything else but spilts with roadgrippers on my hilux, all high country work, just about any tyre dealer will have 2nd hand 'new' roadgrippers in stock from new vehicles, I purchased a full set of 5 splits and tyres for $400 about 12 mths ago, all brand new straight of a new hilux at my local trye dealer. The trading post is another good source if you are in Melbourne, The only other trye I would look at is in the Cooper range, but I'm quite happy with the grippers for any sort of work I do. .......Les

Ian...I agree with Les...I reckon if you have a chat to your local tyre bloke, you should come out of it ok. I recently bought a couple of Grippers for spares with split rims for around the $55 each, I was happy enough with that. Fair bit of meat on em too. I always buy my tyres from this bloke, I have tractors , 5 cars and utes and serveral others bits and pieces, so I think he looks after me, but compared to new the price was good. He made a little comment about Grippers which I thought was interesting, (this fella has been in the job a long time) e said, that the grippers the come with the hilux as standard are a real good jigger, but the ones made ere in oz, aren,t that flash, and pobably not worth having. Horrooo Des

Les, if Dunlop Road Grippers are not the worst tyre ever invented, I dont know what is? Personally I think it's a disgrace that such good 4wds like Toyota come out with them from the factory.
