Thanks guys definitely food for thought and more research to be done still leaning towards the toyos but just a bit disappointed they don't make the Kos anymore and in a few reviews I've read on the ko2s ,but they are the best looking of the lot ,but it's going to come down to price and durability. Also hilarious Doug but I'll keep the Nissan in case anyone needs a tow playful beer

Had a good yarn with a telstra tech in Alice about 5 weeks ago and he swears by these tyres. I have no idea of the cost and only made in one size 235/85R 16LT recons they will go anywhere. I have an ex telstra nissan patrol and thats what started the conversation. I will look at them when I need tyres again

I think you guys will find what Madtuna is referring to, mostly in outback WA, the biggest issue in tyres is being staked in the side wall by Mulga stumps. just about no regular radial A/T on the market can deal with this.
put a stake thru the tread area, no big prob, just put a plug in it (if its not too big), rip a 2" or 3" tear in the sidewall on a Mulga stake & your tyre is stuffed.
There are a couple of tyres on the market that deal with them better than most.
cant remember the brand names off the top of my head

They get a decent review too m8.

I had hankook dynapro MT muddies and loved them for awesome all weather stickiness but when I had to replace them recently the buggers had no stock in the country , seems they were so popular they just had none available .

Jax tyres told me that hankook AT’s are the exact same compound so I got a set of them but I call crapppa, I swear they don’t stick as well as the mud tyres , I say definitely a different rubber compound but I can’t give them back.

Next time I need tyres I will order the same Muddies a month or two before I need them.

Comparing tyres is a tough ask , it’s not just grip that’s critical but also durability , and very few tyre comparisons cover all tyres and all factors ...

My tyres are great for here but not practical for general use. Absolute crap on bitumen, useless in mud but then in the mud here you just dont drive anyway even with the best of mud tyres on.
There are many more better suited for everyday general purpose.

I put these tyres on back in August and am still waiting for the back pair to cop a puncture so I can swap them over to my new split rims.
We have superlugs here over 5 years old with zero tread left, they are slicks but we still run around on them daily in some of the rockiest mulga infested crap out there.

Two sets of wheels is ideal, but also not practical for everybody, but it works for us.
If I need to go to Perth or Kal I just pick the ute up with the fork lift, wiz off the wheels and throw on a set of road wheels.

For serious Mud I like these INSA Turbo's which are a copy of the Simex Mud Tyre's, these bad boys have about 20 to 22mm of tread on them, they as close to a tractor tyre you can get while keeping things road legal, and they are cheap too But I am having trouble Inventing a good enough reason to buy them, LOL heart inlove inlove inlove

I run these as well and have just clocked 50k on them. There is no way they will get anywhere near another 50k on them. I reckon another 20k if I'm lucky.
I've been to some pretty remote areas and some very rough tracks.
Not saying I wouldn't get them again. Just can't see how anyone is getting close to 100k on them.

Hi Booney, I went through a similar thing looking for good AT's when I bought my LC100 in 2017, I'd read that the BF K02 weren't as good as the original K0 but ended up buying a set in the end, glad I did mate. Great on road grip with no noise, great on the tracks where we prospect, I don’t even both dropping pressure on the rough stuff as they grip well and never suffered slipping on bog holes yet, not that I do much off road, just when I get out prospecting so you'd have a good idea of use.
I love them and think they are worth every cent.

I’m on my second set of Toyo at 2s. We’re a great tyre for general use. ( we don’t all go scrub bashing in WA ) only problem I’ve had with them is that up around 80,000 they seem to get a bit hard and you got to be pretty careful on the wet bitchy.

After much consideration I have decided to go with the Bfg ko2 ‘s this time ,even though they cost a bit more than the toyos it came down to grip in the wet . I like the tread patten as it has a big chunky shoulder with ample ability to expell water , as most of my driving is up and down mountain roads this suits me best . I’ve had them on for a week now and what I’ve noticed is they track like I’m on rails excellent grip in the wet , feel very sure footed . They are a bit noisier than my old ko’s ,but not to bad , ended up getting them for $279 each and put them on steel rims for looks . So far very happy with them . So then I’m at the lights yesterday morning and some clown runs into the back off me , not to much damage to mine just tailgate and bumper but his car was a mess, with his airbags saving him , least no one was hurt thumbsup Cheers Booney . the blue on the wheels is just a protective cover on the writing which washes off I’m told 1563282209_d6c25e52-706b-4485-aae4-d8a069d9f1cc.jpg

Booney regarding D40 rear ending
Have a good look at chassis rails around area where cab ends and tub starts for any distortion?
Superior engineering do a strengthening plate also for the D40 chassis if you work it hard ?

Not good being involved in any accident Booney thumbsdown lucky it turned out to be the best one, no injuries thumbsup make sure you rotate the tyres every 5k or you will only get 50k or there abouts before having to replace the two on the rear beer

Thanks DR will look into that , the tow hitch took most of the hit but that is attached to chassis rails. Will get that checked out.
Thanks RM good advice with the tyres comes free rotation every 5 k for life of tyres a good deal I thought cheers Booney.
