new rubber for a '94 Landcruiser ute

Post by iano » Tue 14 Jan, 2014 8:50 am

Posting on behalf of my bro whose in Melb

His 94 landcruiser ute needs new shoes...they're bald as a badger. He (and I for that matter) don't know jack about decent 4WD rubber. The vehicle has Sunraysia rims on it, I forget what size - 15 inch would it be?

What's he looking at per corner, I took a stab in the dark and said about $200 minimum. And what brands should he look at. Would some A/Ts be the best value?

you'll probably end up buying lexus tyres because they give you free prostate exams every time you need to go to the airport, so why ask us??

Nice Dan.

Ian, no clue on the tyres but I am sure being a 4x4 ute it will depend on usage - offroad, load, etc.

Check tirerack for prices though.

I don't mean to bring this back to something remotely useful for Ian, but have a look at the http://www.kumho.com.au/blog/products/r ... ad Venture

They are hard wearing, really quiet on the road and cheap. I have them on my 200 series Sahara and Mick has run them on his 100 series cruiser for two set.

As you were.

My fourbies all had BF Goodrich A/T's .... loved em, albeit a bit noisy on the highway.

But, when I had to hit the dirt/clay/sand they were amazing, and that's what they were for!

They also lasted 60-80,000k, unlikes shoes on the F6 which last 20k if we're lucky lol

If he just wants cheap then search ebay for second hand. Theres shedloads.

If he's chasing a basic all-terrain tyre but looking for best kms then get Cooper AT's. Should see anywhere between 60-90 out of them.

If he's chasing decent 4x4 tyres then he needs to figure out how much he wants to spend. My claws were $460 per corner...

He ain't the sharpest tool in the box. Showed me an eBay add for a set of rims off a Jeep Cherokee and asked me in all seriousness if they'd fit.

Not even sure how long he plans to keep his truck as it is - not all that practical as an inner city Melbourne runabout.

Thanks for advice woods I take it you've held onto the zombie catcher then? (ie FJ)

Why have Aussies adopted the term "truck" for four-wheel drive vehicles?
