I gave my old Hilux some new shoes on Saturday. I had the old tyres on for 8 years so it was time for an upgrade :D:
Fitted a set of the new General Grabber X3's, 33x12.5R15 3 ply. They look good, now I need to go test them offroad :thumbup:

Looking good Andrew, and I think the Grabbers are the best bang for your buck IRO a decent quality off-road tyre. :thumbup:

I'd be curious to know what you had on before and how the road noise compares to the old tyres.

Those Grabbers are nice, I have them on my Jeep as well. Very little road noise and awesome offroad performance... :thumbup: :thumbup:

Andy, I had Kumho Road Venture MT 33x12.5R15's on before. Will give a report back once I have a chance to test them.

Here they are side by side (Kumho looks a bit smaller, but it's a 2 ply tyre and sidewalls are softer so it sags a bit under it's own weight)

Well I got a chance to test the new Grabber X3's last weekend in some wet ground/mud/clay, at
Crockerts Hope play area (https://web.facebook.com/pg/crockertsho ... e_internal) and came away extremely impressed.

Awesome traction and I was able to crawl out of all obstacles without any slip or lockers needed.

Ran them at 1 bar pressure.
