    That is an excellent, simple idea for sure. I made a similar jigger to get my roofrack on and off the car by myself, worked well, but leave it on fulltime now.

    Just found this thread, I have had the Toyo MTs and now the RTs.
    The MTs worked very well for me, this time I went for the RTs, to try something different, and I don't seem to be finding as much mud these days.
    The RTs are a little quieter and don't seem to chip as much, on the really rocky tracks, not that the MTs chipped any more than other mud tyres, I have had.
    I haven't tried the MTs in thick mud yet, everywhere else I have been very happy with them.

    Thanks @paulyg. They do seem to be liked by those who have them. Good to hear about them going ok on the rocky stuff. Hope all is well with you & L down there in Vic.

    I run Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my Y62... very happy with them, quiet on the bitumen, great on the beach and the tracks.
    When the time comes I will be getting another set thats for sure.

    I just replaced the set of BF Goodrich Mud's that I wasn't that keen on going with, was intending to go for a set of All Terrain Tyres originally, not seeing the benifits of Mud Terrain, so did look at Toyo 4wd Tyres as they are listed at a good prices as shown below, but I knew bugger all about Toyo Tyres.

    I had used a couple Sets of KUMHO All Terrain's on my D22 for a few years, got good mileage, and found them to be OK for a 4wd tyre and good on the black top and were priced good too, but was surprised the KUMHO price had raised some since my last set and told they were nosier then they used to be.

    Having been some 5 years since buying my last set of 4wd Tyres and being a little on the back foot on what tyres are good and not so good, and that my spear tyre . . . BFG KM3 with about 50% good tread, I went for another set of 4 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3 for $1200.

    Looking back at it now, I could had gone for a 5 set of TOYO Open Country AT2 for the same overall price.

    One thing I have noticed with the Toyo tyres, Both the MT and RT, I have to air down a little more than other tyres I have had.
    They have a very stiff sidewall.

    Yes same with the nittos. I don't see it as such a bad thing, I figure that means the sidewalls are stronger.

Wet weather driving hasn't figured much at all, & river crossings have been fine. If it weren't for what I consider the overly flexible sidewalls of the D697's & their tendency to chip the tread too easily I wouldn't be looking at changing.

    If we ever get caught by wet weather, we can just stop & wait it out until things dry out of we have to.

    The current D697's are only about 12 months old (bought 4 in Broome), & probably don't have much more than 12,000kms on them, but the rears are already looking half worn with the passenger side rear quite badly chipped. I've heard stories about different quality rubber dependent upon whether the tyres were made in Japan or elsewhere. I think the current set have worn far more quickly than the previous set, with the majority of that having been on dirt, but still quicker than I expected. I haven't rotated them, & have decided not to. The two half worn spares are 7+ years old now, so need replacing. I will swap the two rear tyres with each other, & when they are in need of replacement will buy 4 new tyres & use the current front tyres as spares. For the time being I'll leave the D697's on the Tvan (2+spare).

    Winnie, I note your comment about weight. My back may not appreciate it! Do you know if the Toyo RT's are much the same or lighter?

    Hi Cuppa
    The Bridgestone tyres made in Japan are only available at Bridgestone Stores so other retailers have tyres made in another country.
    I have had 3 sets of Japanese Bridgestones and get 100k a set including current 697's at 99k after doing Gunbarrel, Mitchell Falls and rest of Gibb but definitely need replacing after October trip to Fraser. I also found rear left tyre wore much quicker than the rest on gravel.
    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.
    At the end of the day, all you have is yourself and all you need is your friends (and in our case our Patrol)
