    With Nittoís I thought that I had a diff problem with the whine that was generated.
    i am going to Lorella Springs in June and if the ATR+ perform as well as the ATRís I have had in past I will be very happy.
    Hi SJC
    I have the Tuffants coming this week.
    What size did you put on with the ATR+ ?
    cheers

    Quiet (est) 18" A/T tyres

    I was running Hercules 265/65 18" (all that was available) and found they were a little noisy, but wore well enough.
    Then I switched to Hankook 265/65 18" Dyna pro. Not the full Monty All terrain, but a crossover 3/4 AT pattern.
    They are very quiet on bitumen, and harder wearing than the Hercules. here they are $300 each, but in city $220-230.
    I've used Yokahama Geolanders on wife's D1, they were very quiet also, and have a harder treadwear rating than Hankook.
    Next time I am near a city I will be looking for them to switch to, as occasionally dealers special them at Hankook prices (or close).
    I've found running 265/65 no problem and slightly less revs cruising, and met another driver running 70 profile, and reporting occasional scrubbing in extreme turning, but otherwise nil issues.

    I also find our Hankooks ATs very quiet.

    Cheap Hankooks

    I live remote, so tyres come dearer than they should (perhaps)
    Had to buy 1 hankook 265/65x18 to replace damaged tyre. Local tyrpower was $295.
    Just bought 4 online ($205 ea) delivered free to Alice, and fitted $932 for 4. including disposal.
    Even at $35 a tyre to fit and balance, it looks like Hankooks are very cheap at present.
    Geolanders also looked cheap.

    thats a massive amount of chain to fit to a wheel....how heavy is a set? have you done it yourself?

    do you fit the chains on the wheels at the side of the road or carry spare wheels prefitted?

    I have fitted chains before on 13" wheels and it was such a pain in the arse that I decided I'd never do it again.

    I have chains for my 265/60/18's, fitting them isn't a problem. They're not particularly heavy either.

    Yeah, no problem here with the 60's for me either. But clearance with chains is tight with standard OEM tyres so wondering if going up to 65's is just that little bit too much.

    update

    I finally bought the Pirelli all terrain plus (265/60/18) today, havenít been over 80km he but so far I havenít heard them at all.

    Tread at looks good and grippy but road was dry.

    will be on the freeway tomorrow and off-road over the weekend so I will post a further update after that. So far Iím very happy over the KO2ís!!

    From the Pirelli site,that tyre in 265/60/18 has a low load rating,110.

    I don't know about the legalities,but it may be the absolute minimum allowed on a D4?
