after reading and talking to tyre guys
I have decided togo for the coopers over all the rest,
Am i doing the right thing?
ifso i think i have got a good dael belmont tyrepower in perth are $245 for 265/70/16 fitted and balanced.
It was great to read all feedback as i dont have an axe to grind( I have a chainsaw) and i confident i have made a calculated decision,
I would have gone for yoke's at $60 more and probably been disappionted.

SOUNDS GOOD, BUT JUST BE SURE OF THE PRESSURE THAT THEY PUT IN THEM. MY EXPERIENCE WITH NEW TYRES WAS THAT OUR DEALER SAID ( AFTER FITTING NEW WRANGLERS TO A JACKAROO ) THAT THE PRESSURE WAS RIGHT. I RAN THEM FOR 2000K AND THEY WERE WEARING BADLY. I CHECKED THE PRESSURE AND IT WAS 30LB. GOOD RIDE BUT NOT GOOD FOR THE TYRE. WENT BACK AND WAS TOLD I MUST HAVE LET THEM DOWN TO THAT AS THEY WERE AT 38 WHEN IT LEFT THE SHOP.. YEAH RIGHT.

There is never a last word in tires!!! its like computers, your never sure if the one you built was the best...

Go with it, Im sure you will find them good, if not, theres Ebay, where stuff usually sells for more than retail anyway!

And for $300 extra for yokos(60x5) thats more than another tire... They were lots more when i got my BFG MTs too :(

Dougie.
I've run a number of tyres in all sorts of conditions. My best performing tyre for serious off-road to around town is the BF Goodrich A/T KO. Running on Landcruisers for the last 10 years I have consistently got 80,000k+ and in 10 years of Simpson Desert, Cape, Gulf and a million places in between have had 4 flat tyres in that time.
Currently ruuning 285's on 16" rims - troopcarrier.
