    Now which new tires to get...

    Over the weekend away in the flinders rangers we had some very bad luck. 1 tire, oh well it happens even if i it did happen in spectacular fashion(see photo) but the second one the next day. Now someone is pulling the p!!s. So one destroyed tire one puncture fixed. And now which tires to get.
    I think as I tow a 2.8 off road single axle caravan I am leaning to the Maxxis AT980 being light truck. But I do like the General Grabber AT3. Guys who have the maxxis tires how have they been wearing I have read though the 56 pages about them but there is no 2 year latter type reviews. And I know that Babs had a lot of bad luck or are these maxxis not everything they are cracked up to be.
    Cheers for any feed back.

    My Maxxis are good. I’m likely to stick with them. Wear - typical. A bit noisy but they’re practically an MT tread pattern so expected.

    Very true and that leads me to another questions I have the factory fitted TPMS but I messed with the setting though the IIDGAP tool and no warnings on the dash about deflation. Maybe some one knows the factory setting for The TPMS.

    I've had Maxxis 980s on for 47K now and am not overly impressed. Bit of road noise doesn't bother me but the failure of 1 tyre out of a set of 5 with a different manufacture date (2 punctures and leaks through tread from small slits) did not impress me. Tyre replaced by Maxxis or their agent at a third of the cost of a new tyre.
    Others of the set seem to have the same splitting happening.
    Maybe about 10K left in them but if I do a remote off road trip I'll be junking them for something else which may be Grabbers as I had a good run with them on Defenders. Now the question is do I go for new rims at 18" plus something different (Falkens?) or stay with the 19"? I doubt anyone will pay for the 19" rims so I may just get GGs until I get shot of the D4 in a year or so.... although the Cook reckons this is the last time I waste money on a Land Rover. And it will be.

    I am about to replace the very bland 100% bitumen smooth road based tyres on mine, and have decided either Toyo Open Country Plus 255/55R19 or (most likely) the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 255/55R19 as they have had very good reports on other threads here.

    Had the Toyo's on another 4WD (Isuzu Mux) and they were very quiet and smooth, and also very good in the wet, but only did approx 12,000 klms so can't comment on their life.
    MY13 TDV6. "e" rear diff, I-Drive throttle controller, otherwise bog standard.

    I didn’t think toyo’s make a 19inch in a AT.

    I'll put a vote in for the Hankooks, excellent wear, very low noise, stable in wet conditions and perform ok offroad on gravel, dust and sand. Not great in clay mud as don't easily self clean but not many ATs do.

    On balance one of the best tyres I've owned.
