I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Am I correct in assuming that they would br noisy.

Most reviews on the resent popular tyres state that the sidewalls are thin and punctures are guranteed

Very happy so far.

RE: Best alternative to BF
I was considering velocities. I am now thinking of FS Destinations apparently a very underated tyre and malas do them for 1300

RE: Best alternative to BF
I tried them when they were first released, had them on the syncro for 0ne day, took off and fitted ATX, they had very little off road traction, obstacles etc,

have a set on my diesel syncro, never used them off road, only on gravel etc,

Good to know Stuart. that's why we have experts like you. I just would like a tyre that can give 70k kms as a set of tyres is a lot of Zulus for me to dish out.
Malas do the Wranglers for 1150 perhaps ill go for those when the time comes. they also do the world contacts for 1260 so its al very confusing as some people claim only getting 20-30k per set..

RE: Best alternative to BF
Being a farmer in Mooi River, I spend 90% of my time driving in dirt/mud/snow, so I feel that I can add my two cents worth here.

In terms of brands, I've had FS Destinations, ATX's, and Dunlop SP trackgrips on my farm bakkie. All have been tried in wet pastures, thick mud, and snow.

The Dunlop SP trackgrip is, in my opinion, the best all round tyre. I originally put them on because they were cheap, but have been so impressed by them that we now have them on three of the four farm bakkies. Lugs just broke off of the FS Destinations driving on our shale roads, and the ATX's got bogged down for nothing in wet pastures/mud.

As I say, just my two cents worth...
