A friend of mine has just bought herself a Jeep but it has road tyres on it. She is new to 4wd'ing so I am taking her down to the coorong in a few weeks to teach her a few tricks (and basically build up her confidence).
Looking for some feedback on the best value for money ($ is tight with her husband and kids!) AT tyres. The veh will be mainly used around town still so don't want to spend too much.

Ta,

GT radials seem to be reasonably cheap.
Their savero is sort of similar to the old yokohama super digger pattern.
About $180.00 per tyre (235/85/16) or less for other sizes.

If you want cheap, try some chinese brands like triangle.
Had a quote for $113.00 for 235/85/16. (yes one one three)

Falken have an AT that I saw at a tyre retailer that was also about $180.00

Havn't tried any of them on the road or tracks yet so can't speak about grip.

Road tyres will be ok for sand driving, and can back up GT radial, savero tyres as i have been running them for many years, in all terrains, and i am paying about $160-170 each for them, 10r15.

Cheers

Not well know apart from cabbies are Federal tyres. They are returning fantastic mileage and good performance figures.

I had set of Federal 351 10.5R15 AT for a few years and got over 150 000km in ALL sorts of terrain. Plenty of city driving (very good in the wet) living in Sydney and Brisbane for years and plenty of touring km. Did the Plenty and Donahue Hwys, Mareenie Loop (15000km with camper Trailer)in NT, and lots of weekends, Spicers Gap, Cooloola, Fraser, Stockton Beach, Barrington Tops, Tasmania, Mt Sugarloaf etc playing.

They never let me down, good all round traction, and the tread block clear pretty well for an AT.
They were $100 each and I think you can still get them for $130 in some places!

I know they were not 16's but Im sure they do 16's, Im only recommending the performance and longetivity were superb for the price!

Goodluck anyway

Matt.

I had Olympic Overlanders on my Navara, great on sand, good price from memory, and got good wear out of them.
