BFG's are in that size. Think Coopers are to. (I'm about 95% certain thats the size thats on my Pajero).

That though is like debating which is better Nissan or Toyota. You'll get 100 different answers.

I personally wouldn't buy a set of Goodyear AT's, but the MTR's are an excellent tyre. Don't know anything about Yoko's

I have BFG's on my Bravo and they haven't let me down yet.
Sand is the only thing they don't seem to like. Great on everything else tho'
I have been told that Goodyears tend to go out of round near the end of their life.
I found this to be true on my 2WD causing quite a bad vibration so.....

Good Luck

Have used BFG all terrains on two of my cruisers and have got over 80,000kms on both sets. A little noisy but a great wearing tyre. I have now got Yokahama geolander AT's on my Hilux and reckon I will be lucky to get 60,000 with the way that they are wearing (even when rotating 5 tyres every 10,000). No difference in driving styles or roads. In fact nothing has changed at all. I will just not get the same milage out of Yokahamas. As far as the quality of the tyre goes the Yokahamas are quieter than the BFG at's and seem better in snow and the wet. Off road they were as good as the BFG's when they were new. I paid 175 per tyre for the yoyies as opposed to 235 for the BFG's. A set of 5 saved me $300 however the milage will not be as good and I reckon in hindsight I should have gone with the BFG's for the longer wear. Both perform really well though. For the best deal on each try competition tyres in Melb. Beat any price.

Hi
Got a '94 4Runner and I've run the 265 75 R15 Grandtreks, 31 10.5 R15 Pirelli ATs, and currently the 31 10.5 R15 BFG AT (as the two sizes of tyre are very close) and I prefer the BFG ATs. The Grandtreks were great on road, poor off; the Pirellis were as soft as cheese and I'm now very happy with the BFGs.

Price Yokos and that will automatically put them out,

Coopers ST's, BFG AT's, Toyo's, Bridgestones, they are all good..

Try the Coopers - the mileage guarantee is great. Not a bad tyre in any case.
