Re: WK2 DownUnder

I'm happy with the kumhos but they'll be lucky to get to 25,000kms. For the next set I'm looking at longevity so the Cooper H/T plus, good for 60,000 kms, thoughts anyone?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think the Coopers would be a better investment.
Wonder what the noise levels would be like?

I wish they did Coopers in 265/50/20's
I definitely go Coopers if I had 18's.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

So far so good with Cooper AT3's. Though the new Bridgestone D697 LT tyres are interesting.

They do, well Cooper ltz's at least, I recently brought a set of 285/50/20's they fit fine, done 14,000km on them so far, still look like new. They are way way better off road but a little noisier on....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Much noisier? I reckon my Kuhmo's have got noisier over tiime and they are as slipply as a butchers %^&* in the wet. What's the Coopers like cornering in the wet? (Best 20" HT's I ever had were Toyo Open Country's on my Pajero NS. Great tire in the dry, and were absolute life savers in the wet, absolute as grippy as but no good for anything OR other than sand.)......fancy starting a "tyre" thread for Aussie WK2 owners? Many of us must be coming up to a tyre change within the next several months and I for one would appreciate good advice from fellow owners with good purchasing experience on AT's. (preferably 20" 'ers)

Hmm, A bit noisier than the Kuhmo,s but not as noisy as the all terain TA's I had on my Prado previously.... I think any tyre with a more aggressive tread's gonna have a bit more road noise. We just got back from a 5000km trip out to Broken Hill, South Aust, down to Phillip Island then back up to Coffs, we had all sorts of weather, did several hundred k's of dirt roads, the tyres were great, good in the corners if you want to push it a bit, great in the wet.... way better than the worn Kuhmo's, had a couple of heart in my mouth episodes with those aqua planning etc in the wet.... There a few photo's of my Jeep with the Coopers on in jefferson.oz album if your interested in how they look... hope this helps.....

Good idea I felt as though I was hijacking this thread.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Gents,
Can anybody take a quick squiz at their AC compressor and confirm numbers on the bar code label.

I need to confirm numbers 03P 00930 and P682021835AE below the code.

Cheers.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It's like an eye sight test. I think you might have thrown an extra 2 in there. Mines P68021835AE. Can't see a number resembling the shorter one
