    Do you think your SWMBO would mind if you took her car with your kit on top?

    I don't think the Hyundai 130 is going to cut it.

    Just wondering what everyone will be running tyre wise?

    I will be needing a new set for this journey and seem to be going around in circles trying to decide.

    I live in the kimberley and have found the mickey thompson stz are an excellent tyre for the dirt roads and highway combination, i got 70,000 out of some pretty heavy driving - I use my vehicles loaded to the hilt for work. I now run the P3's and while they are better in mud, I don't think I'll get 40,000 out of them.

    I'll be using Coopers AT/3's. I've had excellent wear out of the ST Max but I've just found them a smidge noisy so I'm giving the AT/3's a run this time to see how they go.

    I'm running Yokohama GO12's A/T and will carry two spares which are Maxxis A/T.

    The only PITA, is that the Yoko's are 265/70 and the Maxxis are 275/65. Which means only rear wheel tyre replacement with spares....

    I got a decent deal on the Yoko's from Legana Tyres and More.

    Bfg ko2.
    They tell me 100% better offroad wear, I thought sure.
    After many trips including the cape, you would not pick it, anti chip is excellent as is the wear, or lack of it.
    Highly recommended.

    I had one too as a spare. It looks very impressive for the price.
