These have been out for a while now and I was wondering what those who have them think of them. How's the wear rate?
Thanks in advance.

Moose,
I think they've only been available for about 6 months. I've had mine for 4 weeks, and done 200km :-)))

Just about to give them a workout in the desert. Hopefully find out about how puncture resistant they really are. But on the bitumen they are round, quiet and OK like most tyres.

Cheers
phil

Moose,

I have the 265 75 16 size on the Prado and only done about 3000kms so far, however very impressed. Slightly noisier then the Wrangler RT/S but cannot hear them above 70 km/hr. The tread is actually quite agressive and shouldn't be too bad in the mud due to the offset blocks. The tread width is 35mm wider then the RT/S of the same size due to the very straight sidewalls. Highway performance wet and dry is excellent with great steering control. The ride is firmer then the RT/S.
Have not been seriously offroad but towed a camper trailer in the Vic Alps and no problems.
Too early to tell about tread wear but there is plenty of it, and with the silica compund it should be fine. The tyres have balanced perfectly.
I am also interested how the puncture resistance will be, however with the durawall from the MT/R and the Kevlar belt it should be good.
Maybe this tyre will give the Cooper ATR and BFG AT a run for their money?

Mine also balanced up very well - only very small weights required.
I'm off tomorrow on the Madigan line - should give us some idea of the puncture resistance, which should be very good if they are half as good as the MTRs.
