Thanks Tractor.

Grandtreks are way to soft for most off road situations (ok on sand).

Pro Comp all terrains are really a road tyre with some strengthening.
I would suggest that you look at the Extreme AT if Pro Comp is your manufacturer of choice. eXtreme AT (click here)
Better blocks for traction, side bite pattern, they are directional, so your 2 spares will need to have them fitted, one for each direction.

Tyres is a subject that gets a lot of response in any forum.

You may also want to consider,
Mickey Thompson ATZ
Goodyear Wrangler MT
BFG KM2 or even AT's
Cooper ST

Although I don't run the Mickey T's ATZ I know a few people who are very happy with them after the first 2000 kms...

I have friends who are up the cape with Wranglers (Kevlars) and are very happy with performance.

Lots of people swear by BFG AT's.

I am looking at MT AT's and Wranglers at the moment to replace my Cooper STT's (2nd set) no problems, 1 puncture in 2 sets and 160000kms, but noisy...

Heart says Wranglers - Head says MT's

Tony is right in what he says.

If your going to pay for a premium tyre like the Pro Comps then it opens you up to whole new league of premium tyres.

We use a Toyo open Country M/T's and find them great...it's a tyre that gets very little exposure but has a large following.

With tyres you have to ask the question are Pro Comps any better them brand X and if they were called BM232/1 would they have to same following and with people saying they are the best.

A lot to do with tyres rest on the name.

You will always find mixed responses with tyres...some like a certain brand and others hate them.

With tyres there is a lot of marketing hype.

I had just put on a set of 305/70r16 pro comp at's on my 80 series cruiser. Only travelled around 2000kms round town and one 900km highway trip, Very happy with them but I have sold the cruiser and the guy didnt want them (had a set of bfg's to put on) so I will most likely sell them on. I went for the pro comp mailny they have the severe weather rating. My other research found people getting 70,000kms with no issues. Cant complain about them..
