    can be a worry

    I bought a set 5+ years ago for my D2b after the fantastic write ups on the web. On greasy clay roads and tracks in outback NSW, the rear end tried to pass me twice. I wasn't pushing that hard and the tires were near new. Not sure if it was the tires or that I had not locked the centre diff but real scary sliding sideways towards a tree (just missed it) and later turning inside out on a formed road. I locked the centre diff and drove very sedately for the rest of the trip and all was well (it also stopped raining and dried out). They get a good write up but I'll never buy them again.

    AT+ was only released late last year I think?

    Correct and they didn't surface here until earlier this year.

    I suspect that mutleyrcp was suggesting that a new tyre might get good reviews/promotions but perhaps too early to properly assess the AT+. However there are now lots of AT+ reviews but perhaps too early to know how the carcase performs in the longer term and in tougher conditions. Mine aren't LT but I think they're likely to be as good as any non-LT, hopefully better.

    I guess time will tell Graeme.

    I'll have to test a few more times but I'm sure the car is a fraction slower to accelerate ..... which I notice when I have the 285 18s on. I'd attribute that to the extra weight of the bigger tyres, so with the AT+ I'm hoping that's an indication of a more robust carcass.
