    In the old days, Hankook T24's. they were a great tyre. Good K's out of them too.
    Don't know if they still exist or what they turned into but I had that sort of tyre on several of my wagons.

    +1 on the Geolanders, I have them on my Triton and really rate them as an all-rounder. Went well in high Otago snow last week. Maybe a bit light for the really rough stuff.

    I am running the same, an MT that gets 80-100k is better road mileage than most ATs, buggar all noise too eh. Very very good off road.

    Cooper is head and shoulders above Maxxis.
    Other good A/T tyres that are worth a mention:
    Hankook RF10 (light truck casing if possible)
    Goodyear Duratrac
    Nitto Terragrappler

    If anyone wants a price on Coopers or any other brand flick me a message and il sort you out with a good price , or if you just want to make sure you aren't being taken advantage of or have any questions.
    Cheers Brad

    It really sucks how there are approx 2 stores in NZ that actually advertise tyre prices online so that you can cross shop brands and shop competitively without the pain in the arse process of getting a quote. Very strange setup, not sure why buying tyres is any different from buying a tomato but it seems like in general they try make it hard for the buyer to be informed and get a good deal

    Always a Light Truck build.... always, that LT on the side makes a world of difference to toughness.

    I agree Gimp and Brad its a mugs game buying tyres, I’m the retailers worst enemy I push them hard, they usually tell me to bugger off before I get a decent price. There’s a local guy here who won’t even look me in the eye... but there’s another in the nearby town who gives me the exact same tyre, fitted, for ~15-20% less with a smile on his face. Someone in the trade told me it is all dependant on the rep who is wholesaling the tyres to the store, how hard the store push him and how many units they turnover. Makes sense to me.

    With me PX ranger, I kept the factory AT22's on it from the dealer while I sorted the suspension etc. Ended up getting 70,000k's out of them and actually haven't had a reason to fault them offroad, worksites and towing 3500Kg trailers. Pretty bloody hard on tyres, especially broken rock construction pads.

    Best thing, so many people take them off from new for custom rim and tyre fits you can pick them up for $150 a corner (rims and tyres bolt on).

    If you can get the Coopers at a discount then get them and you will not look back

    Blokes, You seem to be paying a bit of a premium on your cooper and Mickey tís . We are paying about 1350 a set fitted and balanced, aligned etc. this is still dear!

    At close to 2 k you might want to look at importing via Tyrerack.com or other businesses expect USA.

    Thats totally the way forward when you have a issue and you have no backup for a warranty.
    Coopers and Mickey T's are a premium product so generally you pay a premium price....

    I can't recommend Brad highly enough. Sharp prices and superb service. And the neat thing for me was he fitted them and supplied a fairly new spare the same size for free - and I worked in a Sika hunt at the same time. I will be back.

    Hankook RF10 is the latest of Hankooks All terrain tyre , bloody good bit of rubber and even better when its the light truck casing- I run them at present and are rapt with them , i push them pretty bloody hard and haven't had them let me down as well as them being on track for doing big mileage
