Can someone please explain why some tyres are measured in different formats. Like 285's are similar to 33's in size and so on. I'm after a tyre thats good for offroad work with the knoby look e.g. wrangler mtr, but won't wear to bad on the black top. I know this might be a big call, but there must be something out there. It doesn't have to be a name brand either, my 4by is a gq patrol.

The black art of selecting tyres.
There is simple answer.

For sizes suggest you try some tyre sites, or the above suggestion.

It does take some research to come up to speed.
And yes, inches are still used to measure OD, must be the USA influence.

everyone on here will give you a different answer. This is a hot topic that has been around for a long time and will always be around. Do some searches and go from there and make up your own mind. It gets confusing with 4000 different opinions :)

the dick cepek f-c II is a special hybred tyre that has been designed to be in between a all terrain and a mud terrain.IT has a tread depth of 17millimetres and side lugs like a mud terrain. the cost of the tyre is $275 and is designed to give maximum performance in the mud,sand and on road.I have just purchased a second set my fist set gave me 83000ks heaps of road. mud,rocks,sand all with the pressure let down.They are very agressive looking obviously not like a claw or a centipede . Thats my opinion the other great point is that they are made by Mickey thompson and i have a set of 285s and they look fine. email me if you want more info.
