Just for interest what Brand of tyres are you running on your Bushtracker, and do you use the same brand of tyres on your tow vehicle?

Hi Cobber
just replaced the tyres on the 2004 BT with an other set of BFG's A/T's
as we never had a problem with the last set which according to Bob Jane still had 50% wear left
but as they were nearly 10 years old time to make a change

we run the same tyre on the Chevy

cheers

Geoff

I have used BFG all terrain for a long time but just recently had 3 all terrain tyres delaminate on the side wall. luckily no blow out. Interestingly they all delaminated on the white wall side. I always have the white walls on the inside, so was lucky to find the delaminated tyres. Defintely will NOT buy them again.

PS. I always alter the tyre pressures to suite the conditions.

I've got Hankook RF10's on the Cruiser and will be putting them on the van when the time comes.

They've done 80,000kms on the Cruiser so far and would have 30% tread left.

Just fitted 6 new General Grabber A/T tyres from American tyre maker Continental. They have a tread pattern very similar to the BFG's but only time will tell if they perform.

I paid $250 each for 265x75x16 tyres with 123 load rating from Nerang Tyres on the Gold Coast.
I run 285x75x16's on the F250.
Regards,
Bill
