Looking for a good set of AT tyres. I already have a bush set on rims in the shed so just need tyres to run around town and sand driving (coorong). Can't warrant spending $300 on an AT tyre when I won't be doing any serious bush bashing with that set. Anyone got any good ideas? Hoping to spend $150 - $200 instead of $300.

I've heard some pretty good reports on Toyo Opats. I know a couple of people with them. approx $150 each or so.

sorry to disagree but My 80 had a set when i got it (near new) and a bigger lot of rubish I have never had since I tried Saveros. I was forced to get a second set of tyres coz I couldnt go outside of city limits without wrecking them or getting punctures - not impressed, wouldnt put them on a wheelbarrow, my last replacement cost 220 (235x16)

Why do you need ATs at all? HT tyres will do fine on the sand (in fact some will say they do better) and will give you better grip around town. If you already have the bush ones there is not a lot of need for AT.

I think the Bridgestone D/D 604V AT series sell for the $140ish.

might have to "think outside the square" and look at some less known brands.

Just got some Simex Roadtrekker AT in 235/85/16 10 ply.
$145.00 ea.
Friend has a set of 31x10.5x15 on his hilux, and are cheaper than that.
Both of us find them reasonably good for an AT tyre in most conditions, for that price.

Are a more road orientated AT style, but seem OK.
