Hi all
Trying to find the best tyres for a 2003 model rav4?
The car spends 99% of its time on the black stuff and 1% off road
Original tyres done only 20,000 and are bald any ideas
Thanks Jon

I put these on my wifes Rav a couple of years ago, they seemed to wear very well and even got us up to Craigs Hut, much to the dissmay of some "hard core" 4wheelers. We sold the car with about 40,000km on the tyres and they still looked very respectable.

You could even try this(I've never hyper linked before so this is a practice)...

G'day,

I've bought the better feeling half a Rav and stuck BF A/T's on it. They seem to be good so far (But only 12k on it so far). I've also seen an older one with them on and it was waring evenly (side to side and frount to back). It also looked like it did a bit more hard work than ours.
Not sure if I'll do it again, it still hasn't seen a dirt road.

Regards,

Jason

Hello - running 694's on my Rav but probably overkill as dont think the tread pattern makes much difference where I go (tyre pressure more important than tread or width for sand anyway). Would actually have gone for 693's or highway terrain if they had them there to look at. Anyway all seems good after 10K.

Surprised you wore out tyres on such a light car after on 20K!! I got 95K out of the orignal grand treks (ok may have gone about 10k too far). Depends on tyre compond, tyres pressures, load and average speed I suppose. My suggestion would be to go for highway terrain, hard compound from respected manufacturer. When I was looking prices ranged from about $150 to $180/tyre...so not much in it.
Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874
