Hi All,

Just about time to change the rubber on the Troll, I was in a tyre joint the other day and was shown the new Wrangler A/T (Silent Armor) apparently the latest & greatest technology, supperb on road tuff off road ....blahblah blah! Just wondering if anyone has had these fitted and has an oppinion yet? I'm after a relatively "road" friendly all terain as 90% of my stuff is on the black top and these looked to be a reasonably good tread for that.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Cheers Browny

I was also just looking at same tyre, however was quoted $255 each for 225 R16 at Beaurepairs Cairns. Thats more than Cooper AT's! Ended up choosing a Toyo at the same size for $205 as I've heard good stuff about them.

Had some 265/75R16 fitted last week - very nice onroad. Will tell you more in a couple of months about the offroad bit :-))

I've just had them fitted. One big trip so far, out through central NSW, Flinders, Oodnadatta track, & the Simpson Desert.

Very happy so far. They do ride well, and steer well. Wet weather grip is also impressive.

No punctures on the trip, but neither did the Cooper STs & STTs with us.

But.. very very slight evidence of chipping started to appear on the rears. All the Coopers though, were worse. Not bad, but clearly more chipping. One up for the Goodyears in my book.

So, I'm happy. A great tyre around town, and a great tyre for highway/desert work. Obviuosly for boggy stuff, you'd look to anotyher pattern.

Regards
Max P
