The C/T is in need of new tyres ..... the Navara has only 15000km so the tyres are still pretty good.....cannt remember what type they are ...Bucky will know....

Laura,

It would be good to have the same tyres and rims on both vehicle and camper.

You have said that you are off to Innamincka latter this year.
If I was you I would put two new tyres on the back of the Navara, put the best of the tyres that are on the Navara now on the front and the other two,"the worst" on to the camper.

If the rims aren't the same on the vehicle and camper some tyre swapping will have to be done.

More important than type of tyre is that they are compatible with the tow vehicle. I have 5 splits and 4 fats and depending on where I'm going will put either on the car or trailer. If I got several wrecked tyres I could always chop and change tyre combos. Same diameter wheel/tyre on each axle is a must.

Strictly speaking the same tyre is perfect but not really necessary if you only plan to keep them as trailer tyres and use them as spares for car when travelling.

Hi Laura.

I would be fairly sure the tyres on your Nissan Navara are similar
to mine, Bridgstone Duelers AT. 265/70R 16-112S-693.
ours have done just over 42 thousand ks.and have about 10 thousand
ks left, they have never done any serious off road stuff, only on
bitumen or concrete M1, they are a soft compound tyre, I would
get a new set for the Nissan and keep the old ones for the C/T.

Cheers
Daza.

PS
Check the Tread Pattern on my rig photo, to see if they are similar

Mine are the same as yours DAZA.
Only 13000km on them so far. Did the trip to Mt Dare & the Simpson last year with no problems. I will change them to an AT or MT when they wareout, but tooo tight to do it now. I have bigger tyres on the CT but in a pinck could swap these around if I had more than 2 flats on the ute.
