    Good ride tyres

    $169 a tyre sounds very cheap , considering the size. AT 265 65 17 s . Has anyone given them a go ?

    @madmaori?

    Have heard reasonably good reviews of the Goodride. Checked out tyreshoponline.co.nz?

    We sell them. They're not top of the range but they are ok.
    Identify your target beyond all doubt

    I got a set of the MT's Munsey, had them on my courier for a couple years and now on my hilux, still got decent tread, go well off road, typical MT handling on road (understeer if pushed hard into corners in the wet) but nothing that tyres worth twice as much wouldn't do.

    I'd dive into a set Munsey. I did that a couple of years ago with my MT's, in a much less known brand, and very impressed with them. There is a more road oriented tyre in the same brand for $129 at tyreshoponline, but I wouldn't look past that deal you found.

    The 2 BFGs I recently replaced on my Pajero were $500 per tyre fitted and balanced, best price I could get FWIW thru Local firestone dealer in Nelson, Beurepaires were $110 per tyre dearer (including "discount" and fitting/balancing was extra)
