Biggest load of bul i ever read .....but if it makes you happy to drive arround with soft sidewalls and get stuck with every piece of stone and wood penetrating your tyre belief it and buy them ....4x4 tyres are not about breaking distances ...its about what lasts and what is going to let you down half way in Bots or Namibia ....cooper bf and goodyear mtr geotrac et c. Are built for a reason ......they are strong and gets you home . Alex has a pic of Ossewa on baboons pass ...it speaks a thousand words

Kyk moet nie fout maak dat die Grabber n goeie binnelose buite band is nie en hy goed werk in normale werks omstandighede nie......maar as dit kom waar n swaar voertuig met klim vermoe in n rots agtige pad moet presteer
dan gaan ek vir jou se jy gaan gou gou met n papwiel sit waarvan die sidewall stukkend gesny is

Ek weet want ek sit met twee van hulle met 95% loop vlak oor :redface: :redface: :redface:

Presies my punt Errol....werk mooi vir ma se frottuna ...maar moenie river trip of so traai nie jy gaan short kom.
Ons doen nie f1 met ons 4x4 nie ons doen slegte grond en klippe ens daai is wat saak maak. As jy 1m stadiger stop van 120km per uur af maar n afrika toer kan doen sonder om te breek is dit wat belangrik is

BFGs all the way!

The only day I will get something other than a BFG will be maybe to cooper, but it will have to be the three ply sidewall one.

Safety first with braking and road holding as well as traction. Cost per km the only way to evaluate pricing and life.

JA JA Jy weet mos alles. Getting to Bots or Moz you need to drive + 500 km on tar, and this is also were you need a tyre that can stop the load vehicle. With all our lifts and extras the tyre plays a more important role. Safety Safety Safety
