How do you guys find the noise?? and also the traction on wet roads??We're running the MT ATZ P3 and very happy with them
Hey Trav, what sort of duellers did you have??i got km2s to go with my new 17s, i'd never ever use Bridgestone's again, two trips in the bush and 5 punctures assures that! she's sadly sitting in the driveway with a spare with no tyre on it, and a flat on the right rear... but the new ones arrive monday! can't wait
whitetruck, have you got any pics of your patrol with these tyres on that you can share with us....pretty please . I have seen these tyres in the flesh and they look to be a pretty solid tyre. Did it fit up alright in the spare wheel well?I put General Grabber SRL's in 275/70 r18 on the original rims at $435 a corner.
Fantastic off road in mud and steep hill climbing (Vic High country). In the wet on the black top I have not noticed any loss of grip, unlike my old BFG's AT on my old GU.
In the cabin there is slightly more noise but not enough to make a big difference (until you wind the window down).
Even with the stiffer side walls the ride quality does not seam to be adversely affected to much.
In the states they come with a 100,000km guarantee and are very popular. So hoping they last the distance here. The child in me also thinks they look very good (with the red lettering turned in of course).
they were the standard all terrains they come with, i think they're 693s, they really shouldn't be considered an all terrain, they are simply no good in the bush at all, i don't think they're even a LT construction.Hey Trav, what sort of duellers did you have??
I noticed on the Bridgestone website that they have 697LT's to suit the 18inch rim
I destroyed a front CV not long after I lifted it. Nissan didn't accept the warranty. What it appeared to be is that with the lift, the CV boots pulled tight and one came off, allowing crap to get inside and then, it's end of story for it. My suggestion is to check your Boots (post-lifting) and if they are tight, carefully knock them in to give some slack.Trav not sure where you said it but flogged out cv's was it fronts or rears?
This is what I was told too, Trent in Vic had this problem and apparently you can't buy just a CV to replace, Nissan makes you buy an entire unit which is expensiveI destroyed a front CV not long after I lifted it.

Probably should put this in a new thread so others can search it easily. It will be a problem that only an unlucky few may face but, it's an expensive replacement.
