    When you eventually get down this way, call in and will show you around Fraser. There were plenty of fish late August but weed has come in now so more social drinking than fishing planned for October.
    Hiya Wiz @Wizard52
    I had heard similar about Japanese made Bridgestones only being available to Bridgestone dealers, but found all of my Bridgestones were made in Japan, including the 4 I bought last year in Broome, which definitely did not come from a Bridgestone dealer. The place I bought them from managed to get them freighted in from somewhere in Australia, and sold them to me at not only a lower price than the Broome Bridgestone dealer, but also $15 per tyte less than I had paid down south 5 or so years earlier!

    For me with our weight 100k is a dream. Got 60k out of the first six with regular 10k rotations The newer ones have worn quicker, but have had a pretty hard life. Now on the Tvan. I doubt they'll see 60k though. Looking forward to Fraser with you some day.

    Good price no doubt. The local Bridgestone dealer told me that they were only ones to have the jap tyres but I won't be going back to him as he stitched me up on last set of tyres.
    Was going KO2s but will look further in October.
    At the end of the day, all you have is yourself and all you need is your friends (and in our case our Patrol)

    A top work mate scored what appears to be the last set of all Nitto’s left within our little outer lockdown region today.
    He was trying for the:

    Reckon they’ll suit his twin cab Navara just fine as his employment needs are some 90% highway / 5% gravel / 5% greasy jobsites versus my newish fanboy work Trail Grappler M/T’s slightly overkill 80/10/10% sludgey jobsite needs :-)

    you should replace your worn out spares, the newer hybrids are better in so many ways. they are a bit expensive but it is worth every penny
