Last time I've been off-road was with a 1.3L Corolla through Africa.
Anyone know the pro's/cons of driving tubeless vs tubes off-road?

I'm upgrading my 4x4 from a Corolla to a Prado and is in the process of giving painful birth to a tyre solution.

If I remember rightly you were talking on anoither post about 17" rims on current Prado. If this is the case i think yiu can only go tubeless as I don't think you can get tubes that size. My advice is to carry a good quality plug kit which is quick and will fix most punctures.

After some extensive research (and I mean extensive - wouldn't surprise me if I get awarded a NOBEL prize or honorary PHD for it).
I came up with a few suitable alternatives that comly to both the legal side and the serious off-road requirements.
Will make all available soon as i've got everything for ***** poor suckers like me that bought a 4x4 only to find that the Toyota wheel engineer joined the development team after the vehicle have been released.

Taking this post on fave value it tubes vs tubeless for off road if you mean true off roading not just track work. Then there is only one choice and that is split rims tubes and crossply tyres. I recently tossed my tubed tyres as I was wrecking tyres and getting flats every trip and the difference is like chalk and cheese nothing compares for offroad and overgrown trackwork
