Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


A. My tyres are Goodyear Wranglers 215/65R16.
B. A/T + mud and snow.
C. Cost was £300.00 GBP ($694 Aus Dollars) fitted & balanced for set of 4.
D. I chose these tyres because I wanted a good all round tyre and one that when I do go off road would give a little extra grip.

I have noticed a slight increase in road noise and have tried running them at between 29psi and 32psi with no significant difference in noise or performance.

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


A: Geolandar A/T+II size235/75R15

B: 50% road 50% offroad

C: $830 for 4 tyres balanced and fitted

D: Very happy. Slightly more roadnoise, but not that noticeable. Fuel consumption is the same. Slightly more body roll. Better wet road grip, they bog down a bit on the sand but are great in mud or snow. I will be buying the same tyre again next time

A: Cooper H/T 225-70-15

B: 90% road 10% offroad

C: $826 for 4 tyres balanced and fitted

D: As quiet as originals, only 1 week old so too new to make any real judgements Although pulled my boat out of a gravel and clay dam on the weekend with none of the wheelspin of the old Toyos. One tyre was faulty with a large bulge in the sidewall that I discovered after three days. Tyrepower Midland WA and Coopers could not have been more helpful in organising a replacement ASAP. Must be Honest though, I thought the original Toyos were pretty good (until they were bald), went everywhere i wanted and lasted 63,000 k's.

(a) Cooper CS4 215/70R15
(b) Road Touring
(c) $234 each x 4 ($984 with wheel alignment)
(d) Absolute confidence in the worst kind of wet. Fitted in Cairns mid January and immediately drove to Mackay and back in in pouring rain and flooded roads. 5,000km and 2months later they don't even look worn. It's barely stopped raining since I got them and they leave the original Toyos for dead in these conditions.

New Tyres...

(d) So far so good (1000kms) Low noise, good grip in dry and wet. Went off road ok! Mainly bought them for beach driving, as I didn't want anything too aggressive.

A - Cooper Lifeliner SLE 215/70R15

B - 90% road 10% sand (Ithink)

C - $170 each fitted & balanced

D - I chose this tyre as it was the some size as the toyo's and the car was still under warranty & I didn't want to mess with it.
They are quiet, and have gone well on a variety of dirt roads & firetrails etc. Have done 20000 ks and show a little ware but nothing drastic.
I have no complaints but was initially looking to get Pirelli Scorpions.

Re: **What Tyres Do You Have?** Reference Poll Thread


I just replaced the Dunlop 501/Toyo combination with Coopers. Sorry Brett and Rich, I hope we can still be friends emoticon. I looked into the BFG but for the 15" rim it was going to be 215/75/15 and that was outside the legal 15mm increase. I also prefer the wider rubber.

a) Cooper Discovery ATR 225/70/15 (100S)
b) 70% road/sand, 30% dirt/mud
c) $216 each (Tyre and Wheel, West Ryde)
d) In the dry at suburban speeds there is no increase in noise. When it is wet there is a squelching sound (when the window is down). Actually its more there after rain when the road is damp, rather than when the road has water flowing over it. At highway speed there is a noise (like wind noise) but it is not that loud (it does not take much volume from the CD to drown it out). Directional stability at highway speeds is not as good at the Dunlop 501s. Grip on wet tar seems to be good but I have not tried to find the limits. Good grip in the dirt/mud/clay as tested in the Watagans trip (see report ). Grip on rock seems the same as the Dunlop 501s (but I would not have expected the Coopers to be any better as the wider grooves means less rubber in contact with the rock)
Not much change in the speedo. When it registers 110kph I used to be actually doing 109 (as measured with a GPS). Now I am doing 111.
