almepal,

what type of driving/conditions would you mainly use the cruiser for. This will determine the best type of tyre. Mostly, a good All terrain tyre like Cooper ATR or BF Goodrich will serve you well. There are plenty of good tyres around. Maybe if you let the forum know a bit more about your typical use and driving conditions, you will help narrow the field and get some good feedback.

Cheers

Thanks for the replies - We are pulling a 20' caravan. Most use will be on road with some beach and bush track driving.

almepal,

BFG AT's. Have used these for nearly 180K clicks on an 80 series, with no blow-outs. Have had a few flats, but give reasonable wear.

All depends on size, intended use etc.

Hooroo...

Hi Bob,

Pity they don't make them like that anymore. I take it yours were not the KO's. I've got a set of KO's that have done 70k and still have 6mm left, but they were only used on bitumen by the previous owner.

Cheers
Phil

I been using BFG Muds since 2002. Firstly on a Prado and now on a 2004 100 Series GXL.
A mate of mine ownes a tyre outlet and also does a heap of Offroad and 4WD Rally events and recommended that I go with 255/85/16R which would give me a bit more height and not to much float?

I have not done as much offroad this year due to the business and may look at the AT's next time but I can't fault the BFG Muds. I would stay with BFG either way.

Hope this helps.
