Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Oh, those comments referenced the previous comparison by 4wd action too:

TREAD WARS | Australian 4WD Action

The braking test is at 80km/h on dry bitumen.

The only test they didn't do is the only test that matters IMO. That is, run them on a fully laden fourbie, all day at 100kph on an outback dirt road in +40C heat.

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

Traded in the Michelins new at Bob Jane, got 4 new Dick Cepek Trail Countries in same size for $600 fitted and balanced.

I was going to get some BFG AT from tiretrack, but this was compelling

Better tracking on bitumen, still silen (done 1K)

No dirt of mud

Re: 18" Wheels and AT Tyres

They are a good value tyre, come from the same factory as the Coopers and Mickey Thomson, as I understand....
