    I am looking at a second set of road tyres and will probably go the same ones that @Cuppa has selected, simply like the tread pattern and square shoulder, but will have to check the load rating as well,

    The patrol I just bought has toyo open country mt tyres and he says they have done 70k and still have a good legal tread depth on them, he said the down side is they are heavy but have a nice thick sidewall and that was his second set, he suggested when I replace them to stick with them.

    Thanks for all the feedback & suggestions.

    Had a chat to the manager at the tyre shop yesterday & have decided to go with the Nitto Trail Grapplers & have booked the Troll in for today.

    5 new 265/70/17`s going on for $345 each. While these are the cheapest in that size that was not the only deciding factor. Road noise, longevity & durability were also a consideration based on forum feedback & talking to the dealer.

    A few prices I got for other tyres in the same size:

    Cooper SST $480(not that I would buy Cooper ever again)
    Mickey Thompson MTZ $459
    Toyo Open Country RT $410
    Falken Wildpeak MT $399
    BF KM3 MT $396
    Maxxis Rzzr MT $376

    Only time will tell if I have made the right choice I suppose!

    Go BFG, I've read a lot of good reviews about their off-road tires.

    Had the Nitto`s fitted on Friday. Pretty happy with them so far, only done a couple of hundred km`s on them. Road noise is not too bad, will be interesting to see how it is after some k`s on them. Fitment is good, about 10 mm clearance to the mud flap at full lock & happy with the way they look on the vehicle.

    They do tend to "walk" around a bit at highway speeds but expected that from M/T`s. Done a few dirt K`s & they feel good & a lot better ride than the old set.

    I just installed Fuel wheels and tires on my Patrol. So far, I like them. They are reliable in the mud and dirt. Road noise isn't too bad also, although the tires are quite heavy.
