I have to put new tyres on my KZTE 4x4 double cab.
I cannot afford Coopers again :shock2:
My dealer has suggested the Continentals. Any comments from folks who are/have used them?
Off road will be a small part of general use now, but when I am off road the conditions can get interesting.

No experience with Conti , but also get a price on Yokohoma Geolander G15, they not much expensive.

I have it on my Touareg and is impressed with it. Did many gravel miles and so far no punctures. Many people say a T-reg eats a set of tyres within 40k km, the tyres now did 20k tyres and still have plenty of life left, seems like I might get about 60 to 70k km out of them. Yokohoma's web site says they can do 96k km.

I have a bakkie that does deliveries and I have had many sets of tires on there over the past 550 000 kilometers. The best thus far have proven to be the Hankook Dynapros but they are also expensive now. The worst was Good Year Wrangler (by a long shot). I have Continental World contacts on there now and they are looking good so far. Good wear and no punctures and a fair price. The tyres work extremely hard.
