    A lot of the initial tread depth loss is due to compression that hardens the compound also, so the second half of the tyre will last longer then the first.. So I've been told by so called tyre experts.. Kinda makes sense also though.

    Ok so I've rolled 10 thou on these and yea. Pretty much getting what you'd expect from a cheap tyre.

    Rears are down to 9.5mm in the guts while still 11 on the edge lugs.
    Fronts are 11 all over but are scollaping.

    I'm still happy with them. They play well with the mud. Not overly noisy and drive well on the black top in the wet.

    As it stands were looking at probably 50 thou. I'm not going full rotation I'll leave rears on rear and the replace the fronts when it's time.

    Will keep you posted.
    Cheers

    The old man uses Yokohama geolanders on his paj and seems to get pretty good wear.... Not sure how price compares though

    Probably not. For the little you save you loose have the tyre life.
    Next time I'll either fork out for the bfg's as they do pretty much the same tyre, or I'm really liking the cooper stt's. I've never had an issue with coopers.

    what are you doing awake Clunky??

    just looking at the moment not a fan of the geo's once I let them down to 15 psi they are pretty much flat and rolling on the rim. I have 265/60r18's and its crap can't go a smaller rim due to brake calipers, checked that today hoping to get steelies. I was quoted $550 ea for BFG A/T KO's which is a rip so I am looking at other brands with a stiffer sidewall

    Bfg's do a at very similar tread to the 980's. The 980's a slightly more open pattern on the outer blocks.

    For the 33x10.5's I got mine at $265 a corner.
    Shop around. The bfg I got a quote for $310.

    But these are 15's, not 18's
