Any one have experience with either the GT Radial's Savero AT or the Hercules Terra Trac A/W tyres ?

neither they popped. I need to run reasnable pressure in the rear tyres because of the weight and as a result rocks fracture the wiring and they give out = irrapearable damage and rapid deflation you just have time to pull up before all air is gone from the tyre. on the other hand i had no problems with desert duellers - but then i never did the grr with them. Probably not a huge difference between most of those types of tyres. They are all constructed the same. 6 plys with 2 sidewall plys. My experience is bad but then pesty (sa) swears by them (he also uses hiclones)

Hi,
I was looking at 235x85x16 LT constructions. I think both tyres are 10 ply rated with 3 ply side war.

Hi Sang,
Friend of mine had 2 Saveros on his off road caravan. Both stuffed up fairly quickly - one lifted the tread, the other I think got a tread fracture on a corrugated road. I had one brand new Savero I picked up which I put on my own off road van and it lasted a few hundred k's on rough corrugated tracks. This one also fractured in the tread. From past experience, I wouldn't recommend them for any kind of outback or rough bush work. In my opinion, you cannot go past a good American AT such as BFG, Cooper, Mickey Thonmpson/Dick Cepec etc. - up to 80,ooo k's with little drama.
Cheers
Gerry

Member Pesty has had about 4 sets of the Savero AT's and swears by them. Never had a bad one and gets huge milage out of them.

Hi mate

I have got Savero AT's on my 4by. They have been great, especially when I only got them cheap off a mate. Admittedly they are in pretty average shape now, but they have done alot of work, in sand only. A great buy IMO

Cheers Patrick

On my second set of Hercules A/T on Triton, only the lighter 2x6ply, but they wore well, did a number of trips & seemed well balanced & a good all rounder & reasonably priced.
NEVER had a flat except for when I ran over a bit of alloy section & staked one which was almost new.
Like some US made tyres they are NOT made in USA but in China now.

G'Day Sanga,

Local Tyrepower guy put me onto the Hercules AT's. Sells a lot to logging contractors around here.

They have them in 6 ply, 8 ply and 10 ply. 10 ply getting up to $200 each but says he has never had a return yet, and runs them on his vehicles.

Have had some 10 ply's on for 30,000k's and still plenty of wear left. Only 12mm tread to start instead of 14mm with others, but around $80 per tyre less.

Hope this helps

Rolande
