I know what to do for the Jackaroo but the tyres on the town car are nearly kuput and they are talking $350 - $400 each. I don't pay that much for the Jack.
Has anyone replaced them yet? 16" not the 17"
Did you use Toyo?
If Toyo are supposed to be so bad why are they so expensive?
Apparently these things are like small truck tyres and an unusual size.
Does anyone know anything about Kumho road tyres?

Thanks for your help.

Friend of mine paid $200 for 225/70 16" BFG KO A/Ts. That was in Brisbane.

I have just replaced the Toyo Tranpath A14's on our XTrail (215/70/15) after 45,000klms. I was initially wary of how good they would be but at the end of the day, they were fine for what we wanted. The cost to replace them however was a bit scary - between $230 and $260 (because of the unusual size).

After lots of research, I settled on Toyo OPAT's P215/75/15 for $150 each. The OPAT's in P225/70/15 were around $215 each, simply because of a lower profile / unpopular size. So far I am very happy with the OPAT's.

I think that the Toyo's have a pretty good reputation being a Japanese made tyre. The Coopers were around the $190 to $210 each in 215/75 or 225/70 15's.

Good luck.

I have been running Toyo OPAT LT tyres on the pajero (235/85/16).
Seem fine, good grip on bitumen right to the end, and OK on the dirt touring the flinders ranges and other places doing the 4wd tracks. $200.00 ea.
Done over 60,000k each, one pair might get 80,000.
