I bought my trol with them on so I had no idea of age or mileage etc, but they were also starting to perish. The spare was a BFG so I decided not to mess around and get new tyres.

Since I'm still considering swapping the 4.5 for a 4.8 I didn't want to spend R3500 per tyre only to see them being driven off by someone else! So I found these Dunlop MT's. After going through a rollercoaster of emotions trying to decide I went for it. I have driven only a few hundred km's so far but - the wobble I experienced at 90-110km/h is gone, the vehicle pulling to the left permanently is also gone. Both symptoms I have given up trying to rectify after deciding they must just be a trol thing.

Like I said I have not yet changed my mind about Dunlops, but so far these have done pretty good trying to convince me!
Jonathan, how long did you use the dunlops for. Were you happy with them?
I am considering the Grandtrek MT2's as a cheaper alternative...(tyres are getting too expensive!)
