I spoke to a few Tyre sellers today and was given the name of a few tyres. Would like to run them past the learned panel in Forum, in hope that someone's had experience with them and can offer some pearls of wisdom with regard to strength, wear etc.

1 Hankook RT01
2 Dunlop Remingtons
3 Sumitomo SL840
4 Goodyear ATR

They are all within a bee's dick in price...

All around $180.00, to be fitted on 15" rims on an old Landcruiser.

Tried Hankooks years ago and IMHO they're rubbish.
Don't know much about Dunlops or Sumotomos either but also had bad experience with Goodyear Wranglers many years ago but then again they were made here.
Recently put a set of US made Wranglers on a Disco and they seemed OK .. if a tad scary on wet bitumen. Totalled one on the road to Lake Fromme earlier this year but otherwise the remainder handled the conditions well enough.

Have since replaced vehicle so can't comment of mileage aspect.

Bruce,
Why don't you get some 16in rims? Better range of tyres, especially outback. We have just completed the CSR, 3 vehicles all with Hankooks. One slow leak in one tyre the whole vehicle-total of 30000kms. Hardly any wear, quiet on the road and much cheaper than most.
