Back again on the tyres . thanks to all that replied to my thread 86281.

But no one commented on the tyre brands ,so what do you all think is "good" and why ? (In mud/dirt terrain )

I have mickys on the cruiser -dick sepic- but thinking of maxxis BH 762 for triton , what about kumho MT . I haven't had a good run with yokahma's in the past !!!!

Any way tell us what you think , cheers nick

Hello Nick,

I replied to your previous thread on tyre sizes. In answer to your question on that post my Triton is a 2007 model 3.2 litre diesel.
I ran Mickey Thompson ATZ,s from new. I had a brilliant run with them having done 120,000k including the Anne Beadell Hwy twice the CSR and many other outback tracks with only one puncture and that was in suburbia. Mickey Thompson don't make the size of tyre I want to run these days otherwise I would still use them.
I have Toyo M55,s on now however have only done 3000k on them and no off road yet so cant really comment on there performance so far. I am doing a fairly remote outback trip in August so will better gauge their performance after then.
Cheers.
Tony

Thanks Tony : As you say getting the tyre size with tread you want is the problem .
I'm wanting a winter tread i.e MT for the triton ((manual) around the 800mm h but not a wide tyre .but most think thats to big .

Nick.
I have tried a larger diameter tyre on my Triton 235/85/16 with an outside diameter of 807mm. As mentioned in reply to your prior post they didn't work well on this vehicle.
You need to stay under 780mm. I am not sure of the mud tyres available in sizes 215/85/16 or 245/75/16 but these sizes are as big as l would go.

Cheers
Tony

There is only on brand of M/T I would use and recommend.... Thats Toyo.

All the rest are over priced and are toys.

Everyone has there own belief of how well they work and what they want from a tyre, for me it strength and strong side walls.
