Goodyear Duratrec Tyres

A friend of mine recently fitted these on his vehicle and claim that it's coming with a warranty on sidewall damage and the likes.

Re: Botswana / Zimbabwe safari fuel consumption

If I got 7 liters/km on the diesel (if...

Re: Over heating problems

Ian, I nearly came home alone, at some stage she was not looking good at all - a nice 38/40 degree wind blowing through your hair - wat can be nicer :biggrin: - but if she wants to travel with me she knows she must be able to take the punch :biggrin: Even when we hit the tar close to the Noordoewer ...

Re: Over heating problems

I just returned from a Kgalagadi/Namibia trip. Max temperatures ranged between 36 to 42 degrees C, it was really nice and hot :redface: Corrugation is the nemesis of many a thing and the Kgalagadi has a good measure of that :biggrin: On the latter part of the trip in the dunes towards Gharagab (road...

Re: BFG KM2 285/70R17 Discontinued ?

Dankie Tinus, Ek het huidiglik die Cooper STT's op maar hulle het my nie dieselfde behandel as die BF's nie - hulle het baie vinniger en ongelyk afgeloop en heelwat meer pap bande gekry (kan ook seker net "toeval" wees - toegegee). Sal maar seker daarmee moet saamleef ......
