Hi all,
My old man is looking at getting tyres for his patrol, its a 2008 3lt auto patrol all stocko.

His question is which tyres would be better he is looking at Cooper stt's.

I want opinions from you guys on which Brand would be better, thats if there is.

I told him to go the km2's if he wanted a m/t tyre.

Bring on the opinions so i can lead him in the right direction.

Thanks
Guys.

I'm coming up for tyres soon myself, on each occasion I spend a few weeks researching to get value for money, I'm on my 4th 4x4 and the last 2 have always been shod with BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A (265x75x16), the Patrol Ive had for 10 years like most people I spend the majority of my driving on the tarmac, but these have never let me down in all the years on either sand, mud or rocks, I get around 80K out of a set, the low road noise is the best part for me.

The Coopers always come in high on the list but I mentioned value for money, that's where the Goodrich win me over. Hope this helps.

Off course if you have heavier work in mind, that may be a different matter.

Thanks geeyoutoo thats good info i tried jumping on the Goodrich site today but it is down, so just waiting for that to come online so i can have a gander at them.
I did look at the Cooper ST/C which dont look to bad for what he needs either but not sure on the price.

I have BFG km2's and have done around 15000ks and couldn't be happier.
4WD Action did a tyre comparo a few months ago and the KM2s came out on top for mud-terrain tyres.
I previously had Cooper a/t's and they were poor in my opinion (I did 2 sidewalls in 6mths - not on any extreme terrain).
A couple of tyre dealers have told me that getting Coopers to honour warranties can be a marathon, and that was another reason I switched.
