Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

A bit OT and excuse my ignorance but when I replace the Khumo's will I also need a new set of TPMS valves?

No Sege... they stay in place undisturbed.

Well, that's the plan!

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Well I'm still on my tyre mission, the FIL came around the other day, he'd shredded one of the MickeyT ATZ 5-rib tyres on his cruiser, and he can't get a new one (seems they have stopped making these). So he has gone for cooper AT3. They looks good, and he says seem to be grippier on the bitumen.

Also did the school pickup the other day, prados everywhere, one had the AT3, another had a set of Falken WildPeaks, and another had Hankook Dynapro ATMs. They look ok, here is a clip of a GC with those tyres going up the spanish steps, looks like they have a bit of grip for an AT.

Wondering which sliders they were at around 8:15? Didn't look like the regular Mopar ones or the Trailhawk version. Interesting...

Oh, back to tyres... I think I mentioned that the 'Kook Dynapro LT carcass gets a pretty good rap for strength. They were number two on my final shortlist.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks BennO... now I can sleep easier knowing I can't have them

The FC11 are not a bad thing either, though I thought (previously) it wasn't in compatible sizes in LT construction. Not that this will cross it off everyone's list. Google to see if chipping is common as I've seen a few rat eaten ones around WA. Misuse can exacerbate this, so I'm not saying anything other than research it a bit to check.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Yep, I see this more in line with the ST Maxx, an aggressive AT, maybe too aggressive...

Also a bit worried about noise on these, at the moment I'm leaning towards the cooper AT3, they seem to tick all the boxes so far.

Anyway, I'll keep reading up. For every positive I read on a tyre, there is someone saying the opposite....

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

I think the st maxx is probably too aggressive. I've got coopers s/t on the work ute and although they are great off road (survived all my off road trips without puncture just chipping), lasting ~90000km, on road they are very slippery in the wet.
and chew up ~0.5-0.75L/100km more fuel than the original oem road ute tyres. noisy.

I am looking for feedback on the at3 or d697 or bfg at

BennO from what you've said the Cooper AT3 seem right. Consider the Dynapro ATM and Falken Wildpeak too, but I think you've chosen your mark.

You don't want the FIL off side either!
:sly:

Ciao,
Steve

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Yeah, I find the MickeyT ATZ to be a bit slippery on the wet roads too, and I'd like to fix that on the Jeep. But the temptation is there to have that extra offroad grip.

Here is a pootrol testing new FC2s

Never liked a used Cooper ST. New, they seem good... I think that block is just too big.

Cheers,
Steve
