I thought that these looked like great tyres.

In fact, I went to my local tyre store to get a set and was advised that while they are a very good tyre, they do become very noisy when they start to wear. As a result came home with a set of Cooper ATR.

However, next time around I am going to try them.

Cheers

I was after a set of cooper's aswell, then saw these YOKO'S and have to agree they look the goods. They are the same price as the coopers.
A good stereo will fix the noise issue...

Happy with ours- good in mud,sand and over rocks. Plasterboard screws and pieces of fencing wire cause punctures but would in any tyre.
Bit noisy on bitumen in the city but not an issue on the open road.
Got mine for $239 ea have done 20k and still have lots of tread.

Thanks for the comment,Bob.
"Lotsa tread" means "lotsa tread" I didn't specify that because I have no reliable way to do so. They may last for 100K for all I can tell at the moment, I didnt measure the tread when new and just before making the observation.
Guess what I'm saying is that I am satisfied.

Bought a set with my new X-Trail a few years ago, were great for a while then become very noisy, wasn't happy so got some road tyres.

Sold X-Trail 1.5yrs ago, bough a new Patol, this time got Cooper ATR's from new, 40,000km's still quiet as a mouse. Well maybe not that quiet, but if they were any louder than the OE tyres I had a hard time hearing it. Still vast amounts of tread also. Very, very happy.

I fitted 2 sets to my old Pajero NM. The first set became very noisy due to lack of rotation. Had to get tird of it as the noise was annoying.

The second set I rotated every 5000km and was fine. Lasted 70000 before I sold the Paj. Still had a good 5mm left before hitting the tyre replacement indicator.

Did plenty of (serious) trail and sand driving with them and never let me down. Works pretty well on bitumen too. Did some minor rock hopping and it worked pretty wel. Just pick your line well, a mate giving direction works is even better.

But as always, adjust your tyre pressure to the type of track you're driving.

I put a set of these on a new V8 Falcon RTV flat tray before delivery and went 1/2 way around Australia on them. Never noticed a great deal of noise from them, and not one puncture. Did the Strzlecki, Cameron Corner, no problems.

Sold the vehicle with 45,000k's on it and tyres were still better than 50%.

For black top and dirt roads, wet or dry, hard to beat.

Cheers.

We looked into these for the wifes pathy.
The issue we had was that they only had limited supply into aussie, and if you destroyed one, they could take 'months' to get another.

Only 1 place in local area and near work in Melb had them, and they only had 4.

Just something to keep in mind if your buying.

they do look like a good tire to me.
