I need new tyres for my cruiser ute and cant decide-
I need 31x10.5x15inch-
I do 85% bitumen and 15% sand/dirt/gravel road-
I am not into hardcore 4WDing or flogging the chit out of my 4WD-
My ute is a work and play ute since i am an apprentice carpener and like fishing-
I dont want to break the bank-

Any Suggestions on tyres that would suit my needs? Thanks in advance fellas.

PS i am replacing all four BFG 32inch muddies i have on, too heavy for 1HZ and waste of time for on road use!

Bridgestone 604V, AKA Desert Dueler you would be looking at about $180 a tyre mabey less.

Didn’t you post the same question last year some time?.

Had a look at those on the tyrepower website and i dont mind them at all, they even give a 3 year written warranty between 50,000 and 80,000 kms, they also sell a range of not so overpriced tyres there aswell.

If you can't make up your mind about what sort of tyres to buy how are you going to get on in life?

Buy Highway Pattern tyres and get over it

Spinifex, i think i will get on in life, but i dont see the point of spending over $1000 in tyres then realising the are not the tyres i want.

Asking tyres places what to buy is a waste of money because they will only try to sell you $250 tyres.

I was asking about opinions on the slightly cheaper brands of tyres since there are so many to choose with different brand names.

Not every like you is a "know it all" for everything.
