I will need to outfit my L200 with some new rubber, not too long after I get her.
current tyres are the original showroom Bridgestone Duelers on the original rims
what economy class tyres would you guys recommend
usage as follows:
off road occasionally
need to maintain traction in the wet
I want something that will not cause me to be stranded in the occasional bit of mud or sand
Not talking bout serious off-road rubber - the kinda thing TTORC men does use to cross river and thing
don't have too much of an idea of the $ so guide me here
avg around $700 - $800 or less
Posted it here to avoid it getting lost in the Diesel Maintenance thread and be easily found by others needing the same info
Lemme hear you guys

not too badly priced I'd say
and very scarce to get M/T in 16"

Pirelli Scorpion ATR's - 265/70R16
Got it from Automotive Components, who are the authorized dealers for Pirelli in Trinidad.

I chose this tyre for several reasons. The main reason was that it's overall diameter (235/60R16) closer matched the factory tyres that came with my Grand Vitara. The benefits of this are better acceleration and fuel economy. Also, it had excellent reviews no matter where you looked..
The main downside is that it is very short! Especially when compared to what you guys typically use.. So ground clearance for me is compromised..

venum wrote:did some more hunting today
how do M+S tyres hold out for wet and dry street use
traction and braking
Dont buy M+S tyres. If you can, avoid them. They wear out way too fast.
