    All terrain tyres

    There are field day specials on maxxis and cooper tires this month and I'm stuck on what to buy. Im looking at the maxxis bravo 980 $1350 for a set, or the cooper st/maxx $1880 for a set. Im not sure if the cooper's are worth the extra $530 over the maxxis? Anyone got any advice.
    Thanks.

    Maxxis. Lovem. On my second set now and Iíll go back again

    Save the extra money from the coopers and buy a set of tyre chains for when itís seriously slippery

    Following this as I need a set for the new truck, came with nice cheap road tyres. Have max is buckshot muds on the landcruiser and happy with them, boss had a set of coopers and paid big coin for them, his missus managed to put a big (non repairable) hole though the side wall with 200km on them.... He was not happy

    Coopers look like they have a decent bit of grip on the sidewalls which is always nice if things get sticky

    Me as well. My original tyres are about to be replaced and I don't have any idea yet what to get as an AT replacement.
    The original dealer tires have done 55000 Pretty good for shitty tyres

    Have a look at Archilles Desert Hawk XMT.
    I got 50 000 kms out of a set. They were just over $1000 fitted. Never had to use my chains when I had them on either. They were a bit slippery on the road though.
