Hi Alan,

B/Stone 693's got me 80 thousand over many tyres, 3 or 4 sets of them on my green GU and that used to tow 7 days a week up to about 360 thousand k's. I am currently gettting a good run out of B/Stone 694LT on my Silver GU so far 30 thousand and you can hardly tell they have done any k's at all but this one is not towing much any more but is still very loaded (up to 4+T at times).

I am very much on the conservative side and never run tyres down below wear indicators, my B_I_L runs some of my old tyres for a while on his 6 wheeler GQ after I am finished with them.

Cheers, Trevor.

You only get big k's from those hunks a rubba cause your rig wouldn't pull the skin off a rice puddin let alone burn rubba........ROFLMAO!!!

At least you are consistent with the imported stuff hehehe.

Hope you and Anne are well, I'll get up and see you again one of these days....

Cheers, Trevor ;-))))

Pay the money and get proper tyres Cooper St, got 85Ks out of a set, but now have Mickey Thompson MTZ, next will be MM ATZ, all made in the same place, just change patterns to suit what I want to do.
I ripped a bloke off one of the ST, pretty extreme 4WD at around 15K, they stuck it back on and was still there when I took them off. The MTZ have done 40K and would think they should go to aleast 70K

I have an 80 series Cruiser. I got 100,000 out of the original Grandtreks. 100,000 out of my next set which were BF Goodrich ATs. 100,000 from my next set of BF Goodrich (also ATs.) This brings my total ks to 300,000 and I am now trying Yokohama GO12.
Another set of BF Goodrich was going to cost me $310each yet the Yokohamas were only $260
20% of my Ks are towing a caravan.
I replace the tyres well before they become illegal.
Regards Cruiser

You did good with the G/Treks. I only got 40 from the OE on the 100 series Cruiser I had and a Pathfinder well before that as well.

Cheers, Trevor.

One of the things I find with tyres is as they get older they loose their ability to keep traction, I may have been able to do another 10K or more out of the Coopers before they were down to the wear indicators, but they were not to happy when put under presure from the power of the MU, hehehehe

Brucey Brucey Brucey...... whats going on up there? all the beer run out and you resorted to smokin?

Power and MU in the one sentence hahhahahahaa. So much pressure from all the power in the MU it will even suck intercooler hoses off and tear rear spring bushes from the bolts ect ect.... Oh oh oh and even make loose exhaust manifolds sound like blown turbos.

The power in the MU has a lot to answer for when you look at all these power related issues it has caused.

Just kidding of course Bruce, fact is I know your MU pulls the hard line and surprises (even shocks) sceptics like me. If you didn't give as good as you take I wouldn't bother stirring the pot. Luv your work and you got to luv the run you have had from that MU.

Going to stir the pot now mate, thinking of buying a Jeep yep can not find a 4BY for the price I want to pay, around $35K, second hand, that can do all the jobs. Oh the MU will still be the the main tug for the big off road stuff hahahaha

If you are looking for tyres to last 80,000ks or more they are usually a very hard rubber compound and give little grip. Softer compounds give better grip but wear faster, but if you want a tyre that lasts 100000ks and has no grip go for it.

Hi, I own a 1998 Toyota Hi Lux and I have on a set of Bridgestone D693Lt. I've had them for about 5 years, and I have now travelled over 100,000 on them. There are a great all rounder and good in the wet. Unfortunitly they do not make these any more. Today I priced a set of six D694LT 265/70/16 at a price of $230each, and these are the last ones that are made in Australia. I will be buying these for sure. I'm about to travel around the top half of Australia for the next three months, so I hope they are as good as my D693LT set.
.
Has any one else have them on their 4wd, and if so what do you think of them.
.
Thanks
Dave.
