Always been of the opinion that 1/2 worn mud tyres or good open AT is best for Simpson.

I find real issue isn't Simpson but its access roads.

Think I've done it maybe 1/2 dozen times , 4 out of 6 times the Birdsville track has been muddy around middle of year, usually encounter a car thats rolled in a mud slide.

Robin is on the money, if its only the sand you are worried about then virtually any tyre at 18-15 PSI will be fine, but the access roads will take some toll on road biased tyres. I would go all terrains all the time anyways for general use. I run Cooper STT's and they are great, quiet on road and awesome offroad.

Mate had almost stuffed road tyres on his GU when we did Fraser Is and they were fine.

If your muddies are too aggressive they can be a hindrance in sand 'cause they can dig in too readily. An at or road tyre is better, but as others have said, you need to think about getting there and back. Personally a good set of AT's would be my choice.

I second that. Here in WA it's mostly sand and AT is the way to go or a solid truck tire. Air down and off you go. Muddies dig .. not really that great in sand .. and loud on the road
good luck

Warren,

Had two sets of rims, steel and alloy. Replaced the original AT's with muds on the alloys and put the old AT's on the steels.
Now on the second set of muds and recently got rid of the steels with the AT's as I never used them after I put on the muds. I find the muds pretty good in all conditions. Done Stockton plenty of times with the muds at 16psi and had no dramas.
