Just about change my tyres. Currently have Cooper ATRs 265/70/R17s fitted to my Patrol. Have been happy with them apart from being a bit slippery when cornering in the wet and they have done about 75,000 so cant complain

Was looking to simply gets ome more but saw that they do a "CTS" tyre. As I do mainly road and sand with occasional dirt, and these seem to offer better wet weather performance, I might consider these.

Has anyone had experience of the CTSs tho?

Cheers
Darren

Not used them myself. They don't come in an LT construction if that's an issue. Would be with me...

Consider there are other tyres available apart from Coopers. Look at MickeyThompson ATR 4 and 5 rib, Toyo Open Country and Bridgestone D 694 LT

Just on the subject of tyres, was given a brand new set up Gooyear Wrangler MTRs for my vehicle running 31x10.5x15. So far the wear rate seems to be about average for a tyre with an agressive tread pattern, but 90% of my driving is on bitumen roads, and the noise factor varies from surface to surface, yet was incredibly amazed at the traction they give in soft sand when aired down to 15 psi. Also loose gravel roads and rough trails with loose stones etc was an eye opener, as expected to get lots of wheel spin, but nothing at all. Run them at 34 PSI on the bitumen and then when aired down can be anywhere from 25 - 12 psi but 15 seems to be the norm. Am also seeing more and more 4x4s in WA being fitted with Cooper tyres. After the bagging Coopers got, makes me wonder if Cooper have gone back to the drawing boards to iron out all the problems they had. Was also surprsed to find that Pro-Comp are made in the Cooper tyre factory, and my son has the X terrain on his vehicle and has had over 90,000 km out of them. About another 5000 to go and then they will be replaced with the same again, despite the fact that they are made by Cooper he has never had a days problem with them. I guess its the luck of the draw.
