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


Hi folks,
Ive had these tyres for approx 6 months now;

Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain 215/75/R15 Light Truck (70/30)bias
They cost me $200 per corner
I chose these tyres for 2 reasons;
1 - the lack of choice in 15" AT rubber, 2 - a good comparison review from Overlander magazine.
Offroad- they have performed well,and given me a little more ground clearance as they are a little taller than the factory rubber.
Onroad- they are a bit noisier (im used to it now), they perform just as well (if not better) as my previous Cooper highway tyres. Cornering & speed humps handeling is a little better due to a stiffer sidewall, & I reckon the speedo is now bang on.
So far so good

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


Hi Guyz

A. I have the standard Bridgestone 689 in (215/65R16)

B. Tread Pattern (H/T) i think

C. Cost (including fitting & balancing) no idea as they are the originals

D. I am satisfied with these as they are the orginal tyre and have done 57000k with a little wear on the rear ones and this was mainly done when i got it at 39000k from previous owner probably due to not rotating enough.
I have taken them offroad pretty seriously. They do well on dry bush dirt tracks and they do slip abit in mud and loose gravel and u have to be careful at times (not that i am). Also they get a bit of aquaplaning in wet on the tar but are quiet and smooth. Fuel consumption with the standard tyres was around 8.5L average (city/highway)
. They are ok but i will change to a 90/10 or 70/30 tyre next. Probably change them at 60000k even though they might of hit 70000 or even 80000 if previous owner had rotated properly.

Replaced factory 215/60/17" Dunlop ST20's

on T31 Dci

with Yokohama G012 AT 215/70/16"

 A. Tyre Size - 215/70/16
 B. Tread Pattern (A/T)
 C. Cost ($700~800NZD)
 D. Level of satisfaction (Slightly more road noise on chip seal, fuel use when from 8.1L avg to 8.9L avg (Diesal), very happy with performance on dry / wet road, good on gravel / mud / beach)

Have done 17'000km on them so far and they are wearing very well.

They give around 25mm lift and also make the speedo 99% correct. Have verified with GPS.

Circa 2002 - Brand new Exy from showroom

Put 2 kms on Odometer driving to Beaurepaires on stock Toyo's 215/65R16 98H

Traded for complete set of Dunlop AT2's : Cost $100

Circa 2005 - Time to change tyres due to lack of Off Road opportunities

Purchased 4 x Dunlop RV501s : Cost $800 (Beaurepaires again, it helps to know the floor manager by fixing his branch's computer equipment emoticon

Awesome tyres for unlimited speed limits in the Northern Territory enabled the Exy to purr along at 160km/h plenty of grip in the wet where our highways and roads turn to rivers.

Circa 2009 - Looking for new tyres ... hmmm what to go

Kian,

This is a reference thread only and it's not meant to be used for what you have in mind.

You got a LOT of reading to do HERE and you can ask questions there too.

1. BFGoodrich 225/70/16

2. All Terrain (60%-road, 40%-dirt)

3. $295 each.

4. Driven on them for around 1000km now. Reasonable grip on road but not a sportscar. Grip in gravel, mud and rocky sections are great. Wasn't sure if they would be good on loose gravel but they work well. Off road due to the incresed grip allow you to stop much quicker. Increase in road noise from tyres but now it sounds like a real 4WD and not just a little toy car. Very satisfied.

1. Dunlop Grandtrek AT3 215/70/16

2. All Terrain 50/50

3. $239 each fitted balanced

4. Worn them already 1000kms great tread off road, on road a little slippy. Subtle raise over standard 215/65/16 so better in ruts. Slightly better fuel economy.

A. BFGoodrich 225/70R16
 B. All Terrain
 C. $ 189 each fitted balanced (in Rusia)
 D. Very satisfied! Tyres perfectly well behave on soil, stony, sandy and snow-covered roads of any level of complexity and in an easy mud. I use them and in the winter (at us happens to -28) and in the summer. Hoot more strongly regular Danlop, but after a noise isolation of back arches and a luggage carrier, does not disturb. Run on this tyres 39 000 km. The fuel expense has increased by 1,5-2 litres on 100 km of a way. Dynamics has decreased.
