After numerous flats and a wrecked tyre I decided I needed tougher easier to fix tyres for my 80 for bushwork around Kalgoorlie and as it turned out the club newsletter ( that I joined last break) had 6 splitties with Mrf super traction 12 ply rag tyres for just 100 dollars the tyres are pretty worn but should do for a while. Another bonus is the cost of tyres is between 140 and 160 and as I dont have much bitumen work to head bush it should cut costs down on bush driving (320 dollars on tyres and repairs in the last 3 trips) now while the wallet is out perhaps I will look at an Engal

Hey! ain't you in the mining industry earning big bucks?

What's the bet most of the tyre damage will be through the sidewalls where there ain't no 12 plys?

May still only be 2 ply walls, but I bet if they are 12 ply they will belimited to 80psi or 100psi for the extra load carrying capacity.

And to get that there has to be a lot more rubber in the sides!

So maybe they won't stake so easily as 6 ply tyres.

Oh! and just in case you think no one listens to you rod(besides your kids) The reason for the splitties and rags was after your post. I also went out and spent 300 on tyre pliers, Quality levers patches both tube and tyre as well as xtra tubeless worms

Just a question? I thought rags were crossplies and if they are crossplies then should'nt they have 12 plies in the sidewall as well?

unsure. I think these like I said these tyres were not my tyre of choice I think they are kind of a semi rag tyre - tougher than radials but not as tough as the real deal. they have 6 ply nylon tread and 4 ply sidewalls and some how that makes them 12 ply-should still be tough enough and being on split rims it makes puncture repairs and removing tyres a cinch
