Great on the road but have just done a 9,000k. round trip to the NT. towing a 'van and the wear in the rear tyres has just about made them illegal! Probably too soft?

Have you got standard rear coils ?
If so you might look at airbags in the rear coils for towing a van etc.
I did and get 50,000km plus from tyres towing a medium van.(Firestone hd airbags)
Pajero suspension in stock form is known to be too soft and quickly scrub out tyres when you add towball weight.
IMHO with the bags and a weight distribution hitch your tyres should last and it should tow well (with LT tyres)

Sorry for late reply. At least the tyres were evenly worn.
I put airbags in about 4 years ago.
I have a single-axle full 'van which puts about 170kg. on the tow ball.
I usually have 20psi. in the airbags, and 42-44psi. in the rears.
I don't really like WDH's and am currently thinking of getting Rancho 9000 rear shocks which can be adjusted softer or harder.
Only problem could be getting at the adjuster, as it is usually at the bottom of the shockie, but in the Paj would sit inside the independent arm thingy.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Greg

I've been running hankook rf10s in 265/60r18for the last few years and have done over 95k on them and still a good few 'll before I hit the indicators. I'm guessing another 10k which is mighty impressive. They have just started to become a bit noisy but infant fault them.
.
I just got a second set of rims and put on Toyo Open Country Mt in 265/70/R17 and can't wait to get them off road. They are mighty aggressive and look awesome. Slightly thirstier and noisier but nothing that you shouldn't expect.

Have just installed King springs with standard height but slightly increased diameter coils and gone to Bridgestone Dueller AT 697's on the rear.
Was advised by Kings to keep the airbags as well.
Haven't tried the 'van out yet but can't wait to do so!

I just replaced my Yokohama Geolanders with Falken Wildpeak AT3's.

I was disappointed in the Yokohamas to be honest as I got 45,000 klm's out of the set from mild onroad work runs and 2x offroad sand trips to Fraser Island - they were good tyres in the wet and dry and they were quiet too but not economical at all. ( originally quoted 60-80 thousand klm's ).

The Wildpeaks look very aggressive with sidewall protection and a self cleaning chunky tread pattern but to my absolute surprise they are quiet without the customary " woob woob " expected from such an aggressive tread. Good traction in wet and dry. By all accounts they are long lasting tyres too - we'll see about that over time but so far I'm a happy camper.

265 65 17inch tyres supplied and fitted for $195 per corner in Brisbane,Qld.

Yes, definitely can get LT versions of these, I got the AT's but had a look at the LT version at the time - 2 weeks ago. Cheers.

Don't know quite what you are looking for, but I had Cooper AT3 on my NT and they did 60,000, with around 30,000 left when sold. Have put new LT AT3 on new NX, very quiet, 265/65/17 were $285 at Tyrepower a few weeks ago.

I have a set of Hankook AT's on my NL. They are a bit noisy, but strangely, not all tehetime. It seems that when it is very hot (as it was last summer), they howled like mad, but when it is cold they seemed to be much quieter. I cannot explain it. Has anyone else noticed their tyres making moise when hot?

We replaced the factory tyres with Geolandar A/T-S tyres immediately after buying the car (we sold the original tyres). In hard use (lots of gravel, rock, sand) the fronts were about 70% worn after 35,000 Km or so, and the rears about 50%. If we'd put the fronts to the rear and the rears to the front, I think they'd have lasted around 60,000 Km. However we had a burst (rear) tyre on an unsurfaced road in the Pilbara and the only option available to replace it was a Toyo AT Open Country. We (somewhat cautiously) decided to change the fronts before heading into more demanding territory, and bought two more Toyos (so now have 2 Toyos at the front, and 1 Toyo and 1 Geolandar at the back). They have been very good. We've put around 30,000 Km on them and they look near-new. The remaining Geolandar also looks good for at least another 15,000 Km.



So, I'm now guessing that the remaining Geolandar will last to about 75,000 Km and the Toyos will give us more than that.



Prior experience A/T has been with:


- Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S - very good all round
- BF Goodrich T/A - excellent on unsurfaced roads and offroad, a bit noisy on tarmac

- Pirelli Scorpion AT3- not as good as the Yokohamas however OK
- Dunlop Grand Trek AT3 - good on the highway, OK offroad



These are the ones we've used in the last decade.

PS: Grey Nomad tip - if your tyres (or engine, or whatever) are making a funny noise, take your hearing aid out.
