All Terrain 4wd Tyres

Postby Boozas » Sat Sep 06, 2014 9:52 pm

Hey guys n gals, just after some advice/ information, has come the time to get a new set of tyres on a Navara ST-R and am looking at Bridgstone Dueler 697's or Maxxis Bravo 700's. Anyone got/had a set of these on their 4wd?? Any feedback or opinions on these two options will b appreciated.

I second the BFG All Terrains. Never me let down off road and get 80 - 90k out of them. Tough sidewalls as well - one puncture in 5 sets over 25 years.

I've Maxxis Bravo 751's and reckon they're a good tyre, but like everyone else has said BFG A/T's are the ducks nuts. Easily last you 80,000! I wouldn't buy bravo's again as they wear too quickly.

BFG AT's might get good mileage but my god they are dangerous in the wet once they have a little wear on them!!

I wont touch another set of BFG's after my last experience with them on my Patrol.

Another for BFGs. I've done 40K on them so far, and look good for another 40K. Mine are on an 80 series cruiser.

I believe the BFG's are pricey. Good load capacity and tough. Depends exactly what you want to do with them. I have Yokohama G-012 AT/S on my Ranger (and previously on the Hilux) and they do great with mostly highway driving with a little offroad and sand.

I've factory bridge-stone tyres on my truck i cant wait for them to wear out to get rid of them.

I'd be looking at Mickey thompson ATZ's

Ok, thanks for the opinions/feedback so far BUT, I'm not looking at BF Goodrich's, had them before n am not wanting to spend that type of coin again as not planning to keep this car more than 2yrs. That's why I said the two options in my post. $450 difference between the two options n BF G's.

I'd choose the Maxxis over the Bridgestone's. BFG's are good like everyone is saying but they have the price tag to go with it. Have a look at Khumo though, I put the KL78 on my Triton.

How do you intend to use the car? That will often drive the tyre selection.

Navara is used 95% sealed road use to work via highway n used to put boat in a dodgy boat ramp where traction is needed. Navara's come stock new with Bridgstone 694's n the 697's are suppose to have super ceded the 694's.

ATZ 5 ribs would be good. The 4-rib tyres are noisy. The ATZ 5-rib are what I was going to get, but I instead bought the Yokohama ATS G012 which I have been very happy with. The silicon/rubber yokohama tyres are very quiet and you get good road grip without wearing them out.

I put the Yokohamas on the Ranger from new. The dealer raved about the improvement over the standard tyres. I was surprised he had never come across them before.

I ran a set of 697 Duelers on my previous ute for 40,000 kms.

They lasted well, wore evenly, were quiet, worked well in moderate off-roading (as long as it wasn't muddy) and were quiet on the highway.

The 10 ply light truck version I had did give a firmer ride than the factory OEM tyres which was probably due to the stiffer sidewalls.

No complaints from me about them and I'll probably put a set on my current ute when the OEM tyres need replacing.

That's about the going rate - depends on your wheel size but if thats for a 15 inch or above it's pretty good. if it's for a 16 or 17 ( it wont be a 17 they are $350 a corner ) then that's a good pry.

Yep, pretty right there Gotkeith, was quoted $350 for 265/70/16 size from all my local tyre shops n have gone with the Bridgestone Dueler 697's n seem quiet on road noise n in the clay mud, seem to clear themselves relatively easy! No wet road work yet so can't say much there but let's see yet. Thanx for the opinions guys n gals. :)
