These really are good tyres. I've run them for just over a year and a half. I really, really like them. Not a single puncture and I wheel a lot. I don't hold back on the rough stuff and they have eaten everything I have thrown at them. I believe they were Australia's offfroad tyre of the year last year.

Dankie Tinus!

Any of you have experience with the M8060 Trepador Extreme? Ant, did you look at these before the Razr?

Just too expensive John. Not practical for General driving, but brilliant offroad.

2) They work well off road
3) They look good
4) They hide the sound of any diff humm
5) They look good
6) They have super tough side walls
7) They look good

I just don't see a problem :rolling:

Tinus ons moet praat oor n stel 40" Trepadors of Creepy Crawlers. Ek was nog nooit iemand "sane" besluite maak nie... Sal bietjie hulle rim sizes online kyk. Maar 15", anders 16", anders 17".

40" klink na n beter opsie as regear vir die Cummins
