Yes I have thought about running botos and this very size for that matter... but the size is a little bit "unusual"...
Unusual in what way? A few manufacturers make that size, would it be correct enough to call them a 33x8.5

Roughly 856mm tall, 33.7". 235mm wide.

Be careful that you look at the tyre type, the second one you linked is a 'drive' tyre, so not designed for steering.

Why would you want them? Simply because they are cheap? The 70 series come with skinny truck tyres and they drive like crap.

If you want road tyres i'd get secondhand dualers or something that's come straight off a new patrol or cruiser.

There are lots more too

Was just curious if anyone had experience on a tyre of that style, the boto was just an example, cheers for the link but I don't do the second hand tyre thing I just bought 6x 285/75 r16 jobbies today

They are second hand but they have less than 500km on them. When people buy new vehicles and request better tyres the 'old' ones end up on ebay.

Every tyre on your car is essentially secondhand, and whilst you dont know the history of a tyre that has 500km on it i'd be willing to say that its a safer bet than any tyre thats currently on your car. But i agree with the sentiment, i wouldnt fit worn tyres unless i could be sure they werent repaired by seeing them off the rim.

Not a tyre that you could source in the middle of somehwere. I am running 7.50r16 Dunlop Road Grippers atm. I am not sure about the driving like crap comment. It certainly doesnt look tough, but what I needed was a stock tyre that still had decent height

why would you want them? hahaha thats like me asking you why would you want a GU or a dirty td42.as for a 70 series- thats irrelevant,
and i wouldn't put second hand tyres on my wagon,the link you posted is for 255/70/16- this aint a hilux forum bud, we want man size tyres like 33's not 29's

so thanks anyway but 14 ply boto truck tyres are what we bogans need for cartin crap around in our patrols with :D :D

Very true about limited availability mate, yea after ur thread about skinnys I was keen to try a set of road gripper f's but my mate that owns a tyre shop said they couldn't be put on my gu steelys and ordering rims of that size can take a while so he fixed me up with some maxis 751's for $170 a pop
