Hello, I know it's a can of worms but has anyone got any feedback on Federal xplora RT tyres? I'm not really concerned about life span as I'll be lucky to do more than 2000km a year. Wondering how they'll grip in the wetter stuff down here. Looking at 285/75 R16. It's a toss up between cheaper new tyres or a more expensive brand, but second hand.

.......from under the great down under.

Hey mate, My Federal experience a many of moons ago was an awesome tyre and did its job but longevity was terrible.

It may then suit you.

It’s been a while since I’ve heard that name though.

Keen to hear others too.

I´d always go cheaper tire and never second hand brand tire. I did this once some 20 years ago and regretted it as soon as I realized I had just paid money for someone's junk. It's not like getting used wheels or a used bar or winch...

Unless it is from you buddy that drove 1000kms with the set and decided to go 35's, so you would be basically getting spanking new tires for half the price, I would trust no one on this.

And with regards to tire wearing faster on the cheaper ones, I myself drive as little as you mention and found that this wear corresponds to the tire compound being softer. To me, another plus, as it makes them more comfortable and silent. At the end, I will be replacing them not for wear anyway, but rather for age, and the same would happen with a double the price brand name tire (in my case).

(Before getting flamed, it is worth mentioning that cheaper tire doesn't mean POS tire. I read reviews, compare homologation tests, etc., before picking one.)

After continued looking, it seems the second hand market is desolate wasteland here and I think new is the best way to go. Now starting to talk myself towards the federal couragias now....

Just to add in another important factor to please always consider Legends [emoji120][emoji123][emoji3590][emoji3590]
Genuine weight ratings of any expensive and or cheaper tyre variants.
Some of our touring/heavy Outback Trols 4 corners may need more (above & beyond) any specific preferred tred/brand/longevity patterns or offroad capability ratings [emoji120]

Good thought to remember mb [emoji106]. I reckon I'll be running under weight spec even with full long weekend of beers loaded [emoji28]

At least down on that beautiful Island you won’t have to worry about tyre variants ‘speed ratings’ , too many Victorian caravans keeping ya’ll at bay under 55 mph [emoji23][emoji23]

For the first year and a half, these were excellent tires for wet or snowy roads, but then that went away. It seems to me that even if you don't drive much, this is not a very good option, and it's better to look for something else. Also, I do not recommend buying used tires; I've read here (https://cardsrealm.com/en-us/articles/lootbox-vs-online-casino-gambling-learn-the-difference-at-cardsrealmcom) about the situations that can occur when you use them, they can let you down at the most unexpected moment. It's better to buy new ones and be confident in their quality rather than buying a pig in a poke.

I’d always go new tyres. Toyo have always been my go to and have never let me down. From cape York to the Kimberly they were amazing.

Thanks for the advice, I will keep it in my mind. I am going to buy those Federal Xplora RT tires. But for that, I need a huge amount of money. After my 9 to 5 job I used to gamble in local casinos and I liked that, but now I have come to know that we can also play casino games online, first I thought those were not safer modes to play but then I found this website called ausscasinosanalyzers, which is a casinos review website, that mean there you are going to find the lists of best casinos like I have fond https://ausscasinosanalyzer.com/casino-bonuses/leon.bet for my self. they made it so much easier for me. So I should share it with all my friends, you can visit them If you are a professional or a newcomer to the casino world, to find the best casino for you.
