I have a set of Coopers that I use for beach work. When I come off the beach I take them off and revert to the Black top tyres that were standard with the Jack. I stack them in the shed in readiness for the next trip. A mate said that I should spray them with something to keep the rubber plyable.Does anyone know what it is? I imagine it would be something like Lanotec etc.

Can I ask why you would have an extra set of tyres for beachwork? Are the standard tyres you are talking about the Goodyear Wrangler APs? I have the same on my 99 TD JAck and they work perfectly on the beach. Have to let them down to 15 at times, but never rolled off and always get out of bogs. Just interested to see if going to a different tyre will help me even more at the beach because 70% of my offroad stuff is down the beach fishing.

Thanks

G'day D-Jack, I came across the Coopers from a friend who had sold his Jack. and was getting rid of them. He suggested to me that they would be good for the beach(where I go mainly).They are 245/70R16's and they are a vast improvement on the soft sand in comparision to the Goodyear AP's.I agree that the Goodyear's are good and like you they have never let me down but the bottom line is that these are better (lower rev's and just go up the tracks beautifully). I was going to leave them on full time but thought if I am going to wear anything out on the Black Top it may as well be the AP's. I still have approx. 12 Months left in the Goodyears.They (Coopers) have not done many K's so I thought I may as well try and keep them as long as I can and only ust them when I go off road. Easy and quick to take them off with a Impact gun on the Air Compressor.

Sounds fair to me. I am in the market at the moment for new tyres. What make are they, ATs or more agressive style?

Sorry mate they are Cooper 255/7016 AT.I was looking at the 694's before these came up but have to say the Coopers will do me fine after having them on. Hopefully they will last me for years, as I will only use them for off road use, and that is 90% beach.

Nobby,

I would keep them on there sides and in a dark place. Under the house is a good place if it is possible.

The best way to the rubber pliable is to use them, so I would think that more beach driving is the way to go.

Wayne, they are on their sides in the back shed as you reccomend and I only wish I could get mre time to go on the beach. Although that might happen as I found out last week that my biggest client has just gone to the wall still owing me plenty and without much chance of getting paid. I'm told I'm third in line behind the ATO and the Bank. Not holding my breath.Still ,life goes on.

Nobby,

Sorry to hear about the ATO and the bank being in front of you in the pay out. They, having a lot more money than you and I, should be down the list.

One good thing is that the beach is still there.
