    I'm partial to my Kumhos but they're probably too chunky for you.

    I already did

    "While Off-Road Maximum Traction tires are branded with the M+S symbol and able to churn through deep snow, their typical oversize applications and limited use of snow-biting sipes in their large smooth lugs can challenge their on-road wintertime traction on packed snow and icy surface"

    Not sure if they are for me.

    New tyres

    Righto, I'm saving up for some new tyres
    I put a set of Bf Goodrich AT on at 98K now 149K and there is 5-6mm left.
    I'm in a surf
    I was going to get a set of Cooper stt's, but Tussock has recommend a set of Kumono KL71, or should I just replace the BF Goodrich.
    Here, Coopers are the dearest, the the BF's then the KL71.
    Mainly on road of course because you have to get where your going to go off road, I have found the BF's good but not in the mud.
    What does the panel think,

    Bf's were that exact price 50K ago, I've started a topic in the outdoor transport.
    Can't shoot anything if i can't get there.

    Yes Chains, I also need chains.

    Hankook ATS awesome on road but let you down in mud
    Hankook MTs average on road but good in mud

    Both WELL priced

    Cheers Baldbob, don't get much mud, occasionally of course especially in the spring so need ability there, mainly rocky ground and of course some ice and snow.
    I'll check them out.

    I got the ATs on my hilux.. Ive been through heavy snow on arthurs and hardly missed a beat.. Road noise is minimal (quiet) they have hardly worn in 9000KMs..

    I dont see the point in a heavyduty mud tyre when you spend 98% of time on the road.. for the extra gas they chew and the reduced tyre life and excessive road noise...

    To me its kinda like going hunting rabbits with a 7mm RUM lol

    You gotta have something tho, and full on road tyres is getting silly on a 4x4...

    But an AT is a good comprimise for my purposes, I know theres something there if I need a bit of grip lol..
