Re:


I just returned from the tyre fitters with the GO15's, 'P' version. Wiz_Au, I think you are right they are very "road", still look nice and chunky though. The drive back down the freeway at 100kmh was smooth and quite, so there is that :-)

Re: SL369 A/T 225/70/16


Added the picture of the SL369 A/T 225/70/16 tyre fitted in the original post.

But BFG KO2's are now going on after getting them 38% off ($186ea!) this weekend. I'll have to get a second set of wheels now, and run the SL369 around town and save the BFG's for true off-road adventures.

Re: Oversized Tires on T30? Is it possible, anyone done it?


Figured I'd add my recent experience on oversize tyres to the thread emoticon

Goodride SL369 A/T - My Experience
Currently running these in 225/70 R16 on my T30 ii. With this 'P' rated tyre, I have not experienced any scrubbing on full lock (I do have a small lift from my King Springs).

I have done about 26,000 km on hard sealed and unsealed roads in the Kimberley over the past 2 years (about 30/70 offroad/onroad). They're are pretty much done at this point. I expect you would get at least 35,000 km on more forgiving roads with the occasional offroad foray. Tyres have actually performed beautifully despite the punishment - wear has been pretty even even without me adjusting the camber post coil spring lift.

So...VERY decent tyres for the money, when used within their limits. I'd recommend them if you live in less punishing country or only venture offroad occasionally.

Other Considerations
With that said, getting decent, capable A/T replacement tyres, especially in LT construction in that size can be difficult in remote areas. Most shops only stock H/T tyres in that size. The only 225/70 LT rated ones I could find are BFG KO2s at Toyo Open Country A/T II. And they are not cheap...gonna set me back close to $1,800 for a set of 6!! Worth considering if you run into tyre problems in remote areas.

As a side note, I test fitted some Cooper AT3 LTs in 225/75 and a similar 235/70 tyre yesterday. The 225/75 scrubbed on the front inner/rear area of the wheel well at near full lock so that was out of the question. The 235/70 fitted but were really quite tight (about 8mm clearance at closest point at full lock). My tyre dealer recommended against that size.

So now I have to choose between the BFG KO2 (have heard negative things recently) and the Toyo AT IIs...Anyone got any thoughts?
