    The Sandgripes were Ok on the road but do wear pretty quick. They are the same tyre as the MRF bar treads but with a different tread.

    I had one tyre that wore really quickly and despite rotation etc. On reflection the wheel that this tyre was on had a bit of a buckle so I suspect that it was creating extra wear as the wheel wobbled when being driven.

    As mentioned the Sandgripes have large blocks with smaller blocks on top - so when new go well on the sand and the mud but with contact area being quite small on the bitumen the top blocks wear quickly. When down to the main block the tyres are still good in the sand but no longer any good in the mud as the blocks are close togther.

    However when I got my Sandgripes they were only $220 so even with short life they are good value. On the standard rims I would have them again but it is hard to find people who sell them - the main importer was Ag Tyres in Moree but they got bought out my Maxxis so no longer have MRF.

    Just thought that I would put it up here - obviously freight would be tricky, and I have no idea if the tyre is any good..

    two problems the tyres do not have a DOT rating and previously there was a problem getting STA tyres into Aus privately. Some sort of arrangement with Antique tyres P/L being the sole Aus agent.

    I like them too and managed to get 7 before they stopped selling to AUS.

    Antique tyres won't sell them, probably because of the lack of the DOT rating.

    OK thanks, that probably means I'll have to get my 650-16 STA Super Traxion from Antique Tyres as well, and at a premium

    Tyre Update

    Hi All,

    On a recent trip away I met Ben (lovely chap) from APT Road and he mentioned that the Michelin XZL Tyres (9.00 x r16) are still available in Australia... (I thought that they were as rare as hens teeth).

    He mentioned that they are an optional extra on the Iveco Daily truck... And staying in the Ceduna caravan park, was an Iveco Daily....



    Ben also mentioned that up in Brisbane, he had been quoted $660 for one of these tyres - so they are out there..
