WK2 Tyre choice

Hi all,

Looking to upgrade my standard MY13 Grand Cherokee tyres need for both on road and some off road work. Most branded type tryes in Australia are over $400.00 per corner and i could slice the side wall out on the first trip so don't want to spend that sort of money.

I have found 'MAXTREX' brand tyre seems to look OK and seems to have good load and speed ratings

Maxtrex SU800 All Terrain 265/60R18

Has anyone had any experience with these

They are very cost effective

Re: WK2 Tyre choice

No idea about Maxtrex. I went for Bridgestone D697 for no other reason than they were the only LT tyre I could find that fitted the 18" rims exactly. I went for LT's because I too don't want to "...slice the side wall out on the first trip...". I haven't done enough k's yet to judge them but the D694 which they replace, had a good reputation.
