    work saf currently on kumho a/ts 33"x10" equivalent.
    going alright so far.

    previously km2 (bfg m/t) which were just brilliant all over, did chop out in 3.5 years (~80km). No punctures, did heavy lifting, towing and tracks and just generally pissed all over any other ute.

    home saf on maxxis a/t 33x12 coming up up for replacement. was hoping to get some nankangs as I don't wheel it (hard) and they're cheap, hard compound/long lasting and did bloody well on the old station wagon.

    Wouldn't buy hifly or any budget. And bugger the idiots importing shit tyres. should be illegal.

    What model tyre was it? The at34s or the at3LT

    I'm picking that he is running the AT3 4S if he keeps getting punctures-I wouldn't touch them as they aren't a LT construction (i'm a huge Cooper fan but that particular tyre isn't much chop when comparing it to the AT3 LT)

    Thanks for that information, Im about to buy some and so its valid for me. Currently the BT is sitting on 18 but Im hoping to go to 16/ 17 and buy some.

    I just picked up some Achilles desert hawks A/Ts and they are brilliant! Haven't affected gas mileage, low road noise and a bloody good price(cannot say much for the MT version). Came from Hankook dynamo A/Ts which were good on the road but not as good off road. Hyperdive had them at 40% off the other day but so huge saving. The Yokohama Geolander ATs were on sale too(quite aggressive looking)and from what I understand is that they are great tyres

    The Achilles M/T is one of the most scary tyres that I have ever driven on-I wouldn't even put them on the mother in law!

    Next time try your local tyre shop instead of buying offline , after all you have to keep your own local economy going and by buying offline isn't doing anyone any good.
    Hyperdrive is a crock of shit , they blow the retail pricing to bits and then go and offer 40% off which brings them back down to what your local would probably be charging. Not having a go just informing you how those guys work

    I bought from my local service centre as I trust them and want them to stay open. Never used hyperdrive just used them as an example

    i work for a tyre wholesaler who deals in budget tyres if you ever need. hifly, supercats are budget. dont let firestone/bridgestone try convince you they are anything more than that. they dont even make them. its just their budget import. if you can afford coopers then do that all day every day. prob the best out there. deeper tread than the rest. i sell a ton of muds n AT n never had a complaint but they are budget so you get what you pay for
