Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has had some experience with Goodride H280 All Terrain tyres. I am looking to put a set of 285/75R16's on my 2006 GU Patrol, for a trip to Central Australia in the middle of the year. They come in an 8 and 10 ply tyre and I have been quoted $185 / Tyre fitted and balanced. The tread pattern looks ok to me.

Any assistance would be great.

Can't help you with H280 tyres but we had a set of highway pattern Goodride tyres on the Xtrail and all the tyres scalloped out at 20,000km especially on the rear. So not a good experience with them.

What tyres are you running on the X Trail now Willem??

I put Hankooks LT (I think, it may have been Toyo) and they are wearing very well. Had them for around 30k km and they have hardly worn at all and travel well on the black top and formed gravel roads.

Running Sime. They seem quite good and show little wear as well. The original Toyo did 50,000km.

Ah that's right the originals were Toyo's and lasted barely 50k km

I'd be steering clear of them then.

Thanks for all the replies. If these tyres aren't the best to buy. What would be a good brand of All Terrains other than the big three of BFG, Coopers or Mickey Thompson's that will give a reasonable mileage and at a good cost.

Maxis Bighorns appear to be getting a good wrap from a few people I know who have them.

Kumhos are very good value, because of the exchange rate with Korea and a top tyre. The at lt on Sals Paj have done 30000ks and would be lucky to be even half worn.
