Gday all, anyone out there done a lot of klms on the new mtrs?
Up for a new set of tyres soon, just interested how they are performing in outback conditions.
Cheers, Waymun.

they are holding up very well on our underground cruisers. There has been a huge drop in puntures and sidewall damage, fitters are pretty happy with them.

Although we are speed limited to around 34kph, the declines are very steep with sharp bends and can be very slippery, if the water truck over waters and the ground has been wheel rolled 50t trucks slide when cornering. I keep my foot to the floor and they have never felt like letting go.

They are worn out after about 5000k but don't be scared of by that, many of the other brands we have used only get 2500k before they are stuffed.

Have a good one.

Why do the tyres wear out so quickly?

underground is very hard on machines and vehicles, the road base that we use is more akin to gibbers that range in size from a 20 cent piece to as big as your fist + what ever falls of the trucks and what lies on the drive from the boggers.
The road base is sharp and irregular in shape, this added to the fact that the tyres have massive torque applied to them (2nd and 3rd gear low range) and that they are constantly going round sharp corners destroying them. When they get to the top you drive out of the portal and onto bitumin were more wear occurs, as the axles wind up when you turn.

CV's last around 3 to 4 months before they either destroy themselves or you can't hear yourself talk.
