    A bit of a different brand but iv been running sailun terramax (yes they’re Chinese). Probably won’t use them again as I’m after something a bit more aggressive but iv done 60k and still around 35% tread. Rotated every 10000, no punctures at all. No slips in the wet and have been very reasonable off road. At $130 a tyre I’m not complaining!

    Totally agree about the Nittos, I've done 60,000 on a set, expect another 5000kms at least.

    They are goodens 10G mate!
    Not so sure they’d excell in the serious mud crud due to their circumference sidewalls mold line hindering release and their hardness I haven’t had the opportunity as yet to sub 20psi their flexinessy :-)
    Do honourably rate them so far as the best highway / M/T bang for buck I’ve known in a short 20 say years :-)

    I've not seen Yokohama's used on any 4WD since I got into the scene in the late 80's. They used to be known as pretty soft tyres and not too puncture resistant, but that's from quite a while ago.

    To be honest mate i would be chasing a second set of tyres. You will find someone selling their road tyres cheap because they want to go muddies. Grab them cheap. you will probably get a full set on rims at a good price. Ex factory. Grab a second hand set of muddies on steelies or something and leave them in the shed and they will last you 10 years mate. If you have the room to store them then you can swap them over in an hour and then play hard without compromise then put the hwy tyres on for your commute without the noise of a Muddie or even an AT.

    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.

    Funny you mention that, Darren. I have a set of 31" HT tyres lying about in my shed. I am quite happy to give them to anybody who wants them. Three are in really good nick and have good tread, one has the same but has had a puncture repair, and the spare is a different brand, but still has good tread. The only issue with them is that they have been sitting around for a few years.

    I had a set of old BFG A/T (KO 1's I think they were). Not too bad, and ran them out. A bit of a pig on the road, and offroad were fine, but lacking due to degraded tread.

    Got a set of BFG A/T KO 2's. Amazing softer feel on the road, very stable, grippy and comfortable.

    Took them up the Old Telegraph Track to the tip with no issues. Good grip on the sidewalls too, but didn't fare well in deep mud, after wankers in big lift utes with muddies chewed it all up, instead of driving over sensibly, and buggered the track up.

    For what it’s worth I run Kumho MT 51s & swear by em , you have to rotate regularly otherwise they wear unevenly but their grip off rd is unreal.

    I had no problems with a set of Coopers AT3's ... did 80,000kms and the car died before the tyres did.
