    Will have some going onto the new rims later this week. If we can get 60,000k with our weight I'll be pretty happy.

    Got 3000kms out of a 693.... Was my commuter tyre. To say I'm pissed with them is an understatement. Blew a lug on the blacktop. Cool - not.

    Have 694 LT s.

    Done 50,000 klm so far and they still have in excess 50% tread left. All on road and sand driving so no chips or damage.

    Run min 37psi on road and down to 18 on beach in need.

    Still minimal road noise with windows up and can't hear them with windows down due to wind.

    Dueller 697 LT's

    I have had the 697 LT's on the car for 19000km and they are great. Not much wear on them so far, looks like they will last. I have taken them through mud, rocks and sand without a problem. The tread pattern is more aggressive than the 694. The only puncture I have had was caused by a 3 inch roofing screw I picked up just out of Lyndhurst. This is after surviving the Oodnadatta track, Dalhousie to Mt Dare (worst road I have ever been on), Simpson and Strzelecki tracks.

    Will buy again as they are a top tyre but a little cheaper than BFG and Mickey T's.

    Update on tyres.
    70,000 now with no problems. Did 8,000 klm round trip to the Cape and Western Qld and handled everything well. Rear left tyre copped a pounding as usual and probably only has 30,000 left but other 4 will probably last another 50,000.
    Very happy and will probably go 697's next time.

    Wow. That's good going. I have just clocked up 30000km and they don't seem any more worn than when I posted at 19000km. I'd like to add that they are a good tyre in the wet as well (36psi front and 39psi rear) on sealed roads. Good grip and steering feel.
