    Sometimes it does seem that way, Trout. Still, as the best Beatle used to sing, "All Things Must Pass". This time next year I hope to be somewhere else in this great country in a Defender camper. Might bump into you while I'm at it.

    Only people who haven't met me say things like that, but thanks anyway.

    New set of boots on it today.
    split a sidewall running Jeffrey's Track Sunday night, and the manky spare deflated before I got home so I put the can of fix a flat goo in to get home.

    was planning new tyres anyway but my schedule got moved up by a few weeks...
    wasnt impressed with the life of the Geolandars...50,000 and two weren't quite legal anymore...

    What pressures were you running on the Geolanders?
    I have a set on my D2a and they have done over 50,000ks and there is still plenty of tread left on them

    +1

    I reckon maybe 1/2 gone(in terms of tread depth here), but in real terms maybe another 1/3 life remaining.
    previous owner reckoned he may have put up to, but less than, 5K on them when I bought the car(and it looked realistic) and I've put on 53K klms ..
    So I'm expecting mine to need replacement at about the 75-80K point.
    Cheers,
    Arthur.

    I have been running Yokohama AT's for over a decade now on various 4WD's and 75-80k is the average mileage I get out of them, The set on my D2a are shaping up to do exactly the same
    About 60% is bitumen driving with the other 40% on dirt roads, tracks and the beach, I run 38-40psi on the bitumen 32-35 on corrugated dirt roads/tracks and 20-25psi on the beach and rocky tracks.
    I have had one puncture in over 50k and that was a tech screw I picked up in my back yard. No issues with sidewalls, bulging or any other dramas with the tyres.

    Tyre place wanted me to run 32....I ran 36 in the front and 38 in the back.

    ive had about 3 punctures, mostly picking up screws but ons was a razor blade of all things...

    the sidewall split was a sharp rock so I can't blame the tyre for that...
