juss called the guy

he said he still dont have in stock,
and price is $900 but will try to organise a better price if we buying plenty,
and he will find out what better price that is when he gets the stock in abt 2-3 weeks time,

so i guess we have another 2-3 weeks to see if there is anything else as good/economical as this one?

so far is me venum and biggy who interested rite?

I'm interested in buying a set, my tyres still have some life on them
but at that price, I'm willing to buy a set and keep them till I'm ready.

Rush, you sure is a 275/70R16 you get from toyota? The stock sizes on the alloy rims are 265/70R16 and 265/65R17

I saw the Ironman tires yesterday... 265/70R16 was $800 and the 275/70R16 was $900. Apparently Ironman is made by Hercules.

Also saw a lot of used duelers there. The guy at the tire shop said how everyone changing them as they cause you slide on the road a lot. I concur. At this point I have almost zero traction on the road.

Rushil

if you upgrading the tyre width and sidewall - it is imperative that you check that it will not touch on full steering lock

I may have a pardna to add to teh buying list - he has to get back to me

i want broader tyres as well, but have only ~ 2 inches clearance from my bumper, so upgrading may be an issue

also broader tyres may cause slower acceleration\speed but improved stability

Yea, i sure, its the duellers, and its the 16" rim, same as ff786 has in the pics,
when i went to toyota last weekend for their 25 point check,
i also loooked at the tyres on their 3.0 Hilux, and saw the same 275/70/16
as mine,
will like to stay at that size, but they are hard ti find in other brands, since i doint want duellers anymore,
the 265/70/16 seems like the closest, most easily available thing

Where was this?
Will like to have a look at them, at that cost,
(still biased towards the firestone tho...)

Will double check just to make sure, but since these have always been there, dont expect to see any problems,
but will check anyway and post later

Thats more important for me,

Stuckindmud I prefer this ARB Style. It also uses the OEM fog lights... Can you get get it.. do a lil digginup.. I knnow it will be cheaper and its not covering up the headlights..... thats the beauty of the Hilux.....

I prefer the one on the Prado .. without the winch... Of course cost will determine which is the better bang for the buck..

Work on this Shane... I see lots and lots of fun comming up.. :lol:

Hey fellas

I got a flat this evening, and need to change it tomorrow...
cant do it over this long weekend bcuz of the holidays, and cant afford to not have the vehicle for this weekend and the whole of next week (work)
so i have to buy tom...

Called maraj today to get those tyres...still doesnt have in stock, and could nto put a definite date on it, just soon.

also, was speaking to my mechanic, who i kno for over 10 years now,
(just to sho he has nothing to gain/lose from saying this)
and he said he knows a guy called maraj from south that buys second / lower grade tyres, and sells them here, and sometimes they blow...
he said it may/may not happen, and that the guy he is thinking abt may/may not be the same one i was telling him abt

now,
I feel my alternative will be the hancook i was talking abt earlier..
and i may buy them tomorrow for ~860

so...i may have to pull out of the group buy... :(
