Hi Guys

So eventually have got some funding :dance1: and need some advice on tyre choice for the Lux.

Only 4x2 but i also like to play in the quarry from time to time...i would say 80/20 split for on/off road.

Not trying to start a tyre debate just some good advice and suggestions......however...... :twisted:
I do have a friend who just got himself the new ranger and i would hate to have to have him tow me out of an obstacle :surrender:

Thanks for your time guys

Hi Hoppy

Have had a set before and was happy but price is a bit heavy at almost 2.5k a tyre for 31inch.

Or at least thats what ive been quoted??

Maxxis, good value for money and not such a hard compound as the BFG's.

Thanks Tumelo

Ill have a look at whats on offer from them,

Have had good service out of my Goodyear Wrangler at/sa s but just think i want to go with something a bit more aggressive, pattern wise.
But also still need to get about 70-80 k worth of life as well and cant fault the wranglers there , just rolled over 100k on this last set and the fronts still have about 20% life in them/ rears are shot though!
