Hi Mik,

Bought a set feb this year so can't comment much therefor apart from that they live up to their name ...very quiet on road. I went for them as the Bridgestone tread was too much of road tread pattern for me. Only thing I would say compared to previous tyres they seem a hard ride. When i first drove on them I thought the tyre mob had pumped them up to around 40 plus psi but when I checked them they were 32 psi. But then i guess that is more due to them being a suppossedly tough carcass. I think form memory I paid around $240 each.

Had mine for two years. Done about 35K and still plenty left. Been on lots of dirt including to the Cape. Can't fault them.

I wanted these on my new Pajero. Unfortunately the size I wanted was 265/60/18. They make them alright but at $550 per tyre, no way.

Very good tyres but I had problems with balancing over 2 sets.
They get dimples where the belt meets but this is supposedly no problem.
Do a search on here as there is positive feedback from members who have tested them in the deserts.
$290 is about the going rate now but call their bluff and tell them you can pay $275 elsewhere, they should match it. That's what I did. Go for the $16 guarantee, it's very good, cheap insurance if your going to do serious stuff.

I also had a set of four 265/75/16 for 44,000km of desert driving - one staked tyre on the Madigan Line but no other issues. Traded them to a friend - they still had 7-8mm tread. On of the better AT tyres out there.

Compare this thread to the average Coopers tire thread!!!!
