Hi All,

I am after some feedback on the Mickey Thompson FC-II tyres. What are they like on bitumen, especially wet, and off road on rocky ground? Also, how do they wear with regard to chipping?

I run Dick Cepek FC IIs (285x75x16) on steel rims on a 4.2 GU IV and have done around 20,000k. 15k of that being a Simpson then Canning trip via Mt Dare, Old Andado and Gary Junction track.

The tyres are still in great condition, no obvious problems, no chips or cuts, no punctures and fine to drive in all conditions dry tar, wet tar, sand, gravel, mud and gibber. Would I buy them again, yes.

G'day there EV,

I'm running the Dick Cepek FC II's and have had a few issues which I highlighted in a post last year. Here is the LINK to that post.

Had previously had a great run out of Coopers but decided to try something different. In light of the radial crack issue (as per my previous post)set of Coopers dfor outback work and will carry a few of the M/T FC2's as spares.

Great tyres, just clocked up 60,000klms on our set. 25,000 of that was recently across WA,s outback areas and in the Pilbara.Only had one puncture in all that time.

Been ood to me so far, first set had a problem with the rubber cracking inside the lugs but the tyres were replaced at no cost to me. They have a very good warranty claim department. Good on the gravel and wet black top, work well in the wet mud but have found them slightly aggressive in dry sand compaired to desert duelers. Otherwise very happy and not noisy on the black top.
