        tyresales were the best prices I found without spending 3 days ringing every tyre mob in Brisbane.

        I just kept an eye on the site, and managed to get BFG KO2's on special for $285 each (down from $330 odd) for my 120

          Try Tyrepower, they stock/distribute them. No idea how good they are mind you, just seen them at chinese-tyre prices and being a known brand i figure they may be worth a shot. 265/70R17 on ebay ~$220ea for the MT

            Put a highway terrain on, and with the fuel savings buy a spare set of wheels and muddies within 12 months.

              I have Couragia's on a bash car, they are sponsored, I would suggest something a bit better... I like my Toyo's AT's on my Hilux, maybe RT if you want something a bit more aggressive... mud terrains on road suck

                ATs or MTs? And what dont you like about them? Genuinely curious as in the size I need they are dirt fucking cheap [like, 70 per tyre cheaper than what I can get General AT3s through work for]

                  AT's - they were very floaty on dirt, but maybe that's unfair as I didn't put a lot of effort into tyre pressures and it was a 1974 Volvo Wagon!

                      If driving on road, put road tyres on. enjoy bulk savings in fuel, noise, stopping distance, acceleration, steering feel and well...everything. Then you realise the times you go 4wding you also use highways and go everywhere a normal person does as you're not in 4wdmalaysia mud bash or a trophy truck or swamping with billy and cletus. Then realise entire 4wd tyre industry is a giant wank.

                        This is probably pretty close to the mark. And the reason I run highway type tyres on 2/3 of my 4wds.

                          tyre advice

                          I am not sure of the price in Aus, but over here the Yokohama geolanders at-s are very well priced compared to competitors. They are an awesome hybrid Tyre. Much quieter and lighter than KO2ís but just about as good off-road as they have really good sipping allowing the Tyre to deform over obstacles.

                          I have 215/80R15 on the Jimny and they go great. Would rate to anyone. Over here they are about 40% cheaper than KO2ís and drive better in a lot of situations

                            so to update, i ended up going with goodride sl369 a/t's in 265 70 17. first impressions are good, they grip well and have less noise than the last tyres. the car feels more stable too oddly and the steering is a lot easier. most reviews indicate more road noise but good wear rates. the noise is normal for a 4x4 imho. i plan to buy some mud tyres and put them on my spare 17 inch steelies later.

                              I'm running the G015 on the Challenger. Do rate them. They even worked well on slushy snow/mud/rocks.
