Has anyone had experience with the Hankook Z36 tyre in 205R16 size? It is a medium block pattern light truck off road type.
They seem fairly popular on farm utes around here.

Not sure about the Z36s but do use the RF03 and like them very much. They are an AT tyre, 10 ply rating, great load carrying, very puncture proof and wear reasonably well. Why anyone would pay $50 extra for Coopers is beyond me. I use 235/85x16 previously on split rims but now on steel Prado rims on our 80 series. About to head off up the CSR so will let you know how they go!

Don't know where your 'here' is but round our way they are also popular on our farm utes. Says plenty to me. I haven't worn out my first ones yet. Not too bad for traction.

"Here" is Armidale, NSW
What distance have you on yours? What are they like on bitumen. Noisy?

Phil,

mine are on a farm ute, so distance means little, ie; I don't know :~)

Can't say I notice them on the bitumen but once again have always had 'aggressive' tyres on farm utes so don't take a lot of notice of tyre noise. I'd say "no, not too noisy"!

We just look for a tough, grippy tyre that's not too expensive.

I have been offered them at $151, fitted and balanced. Seems OK to me. The owner of the tyre place has used them and was happy. They appear, on inspection and comparison of new tyres, to have a much heavier side wall than many others. Hopefully this means less chance of damage.

Thanks for the comments. I will probably buy them soon when the current tyres are worn out.
