Hi,
Just wondering about the tyres that came with my 95 3.0 TD Toyota Surf.
They are Yokohama Super Digger V all terrain.
Any thoughts on the quality of these tyres?
Cheers
Mark

According to PostID: 5130, this site appears to be sponsored by goodyear......lol. So I guess most people would say they are not much good. But I would say if they are doing what you want at the moment why change them, unless you need new tyres anyway. Cause if you go and price some new ones you will find out that it ain't cheap.

Regards
Rusty

Yokos are expensive, the local Yoko dealer when I asked for price on Yoko Muds, and BFG Muds said he would save my tiem and not bother giving me the Yoko price... Says something to me.

But they are a good tire, see them around lots.
If your happy with them, why change to the unknown.

I now have MTRs on my GQ and like the tread, just not the size...

Yoko's are generally considered expensive. Fine for around town, but do not expect them to cope with outback off road driving, due to their weak 2 ply side walls.(rated as 6ply only). Mate and I put Yoko's and Bridgestones on at the same time. I had worn out the Yoko's and he had 25% to go on the Duellers, so not only are they expensive to buy, put they do not last as well either.

Mark, horses for courses. Some will say good, other lousey. I say they make a good quality, reasonable performing tyre. I had a brilliant set of 33" Yokos on an FJ40 many years ago. They did some hard miles over rock, road and sand and I got about 75,000 kms from them. I only holed one, staking it through the sidewall with a very sharp, 2" diameter tree branch.

Someone else responded that if they're working for you now, keep them. That's good advice. A new set of 5 x anything will cost you at least $1,200.Life just ain't that serious.

Hi guys
I have now had two sets of Yoko's and while they may be expensive, I have never had a problem in the Outback. I've seen other makes cut to pieces on a lot of the tracks I've been on and, with that knowledge I'll stick to the Yoko's.

I can only say they are a good average tyre. It all depends on horses for courses. I have had two sets so far, not overly expensive but they return an all round performance over most terrain. Best on Sand, bitument, gravel expect around 70,000Km.
