    Yeah i ran KL71s for aboit 100,000kms. Was pretty impressed with them for all environments. Great performance but the side walls are not awesome. For the environment the OP is talking about the side walls are very exposed. They wouldnt be my choice.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Absolutely agree...

    LT tyres will be the go to greatly reduce the amount of punctures... and don't drop your pressures too much.
    Certainly agree you don't want road pressures but only drop enough to keep traction and so the side wall doesn't become a traget.

    Rough guide is if most (you won't stop them all but if most) of the punctures are in the side wall you need a higher pressure to get the tyre standing up more and 'squirming' less so the tread stays under the rim

    What about tyres that have 3 or 4 ply etc but rate as equal to 10 ply. I seen alot of those. Are they legitimate in regards to strength of a true physical 10 ply?

    Nitto trail grapplers have a 3 ply sidewall and a 10 ply rating.
    A heavy tyre with a stiff sidewall.

    A 10 ply rating does not mean a 10 ply sidewall.
    I'm not aware of any radial tyre with that many sidewall plys.

    Stock tyre size 265/70R16
    Environment is filled withy spicky bushes and dry hard stems (puncture resistance required)(no way around it)
    Sometimes muddy
    So what type and size of tyres should I get
    And do I need to change my wheel size
    Any help is appreciated
    Sounds like you have H/T style tyres, buy tyres that are of L/T construction or light truck.
    Mud pattern will be the strongestest Micket T P4 are great as well as BFG AT KOs that would be my pick.
    but if doing this every dat go buy some 10 ply tyres like the roo shooters use
    @MB are you thinking of internal bead locks
    04 ST 3lt auto, not enough Mods to keep me happy, but getting there

    I guess I was John mate although unaware how they worked as kindly mentioned above now.
    Thought they could have been a bit more helpful like military/mining type jobbies on Google out there.

    Honeycomb airless inner video within looks pretty bulletproof but expensive could imagine. Probably very low speed rated too!
    Light truck tyres over heavy desert prickles sounds like the go!!

    Make sure your tyres are LT (light truck) rated as they are much tougher than non LT tyres. Not all 4x4 tyres are LT rated, including some All Terrain tyres.
