    Well when I had to replace 2 of the BFG MT's on my truck the cost of 4 new "any other brand" tyres was a lot more than just buying 2 more BFG MT's.

    Think he was saying you could get 8 tyres of a different brand for the price of 4 coopers. I’ve got cooper stt pros, they perform well off and on road, but they’re wearing pretty fast.

    me too, had to buy a new pair for the rear of my truck after slicing one irreparably, just got new warrens last week with 25k kms on the rears and 95k kms on the front, still approx 4mm tread left on them, its my daily hack rather than a purist 4wd
    I feel thats pretty good value for money from them ?

    I would have put the new ones on the front....I like steering and stopping the back can do what it likes

    95thousand km? thats incredible! Id be lucky to get 40 out of any tire and a lot lot less if i dont like them

    If most of it's life is going to be in the environment in the picture, have you considered leaving those tyres on it and buying a set of chains for the rough stuff?

    The biggest pain I have found with our Colorado is that it has bloody big mag rims and lowish profile tyres so the mags take a hammering when you parallel park it in snug in with the gutter. Well not me cause I don't drive it I expect that replacement tyres will be bloody expensive as well.

    I’ll be surprised if I get 40k out of my coopers before they’re useless for off-road

    Should be only the front right tyre showing wear? Tyres are only made so tough and carting that massive Mellon you have all the time would stress any tyre
