Nissan Patrol Y60 4.2TD LWB ST Man. Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the BFGoodrich Mud Terrain TA KM2 given 70% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles
I've been driving 4x4's now for over 25 years (about 2 million K's) and usually ONLY use BFG's as here in OZ,
If your Tyre fails you, you may die out there...
Something to think about?
I had these on my FULLY MODIFIED GQ Nissan Patrol LWB 4.2 turbo D Man.
This was a brilliantly set up 4x4. So much so it was on the cover and the main story in 4Wheel Drive Action Magazine here in Australia.
I put my life in the capability of the BFG's on many occasions without a second thought as these things are just so dependable.
For a "MUD" tyre on the road the dry grip is fine but let that surface get wet at all and you now have a challenge to keep your correct line into or out of any corner and your breaking distance needs to at least double.
Off road... NOTHING comes close to these almost bullet proof boots however wet rock walls are a challenge.

I got about 90,000Klm out of one set and did 50,000klm on the second set at a bit over half worn before selling the truck to a Darwin resident.
Some of these miles were around town, open country dirt/rocky tracks and many 4 wheel drive parks just to challenge her.
The biggest issue with these BFG's is you need a good tyre guy that knows how to balance them up and rotate and wheel align often.

Would I buy these again. ABSOLUTELY! nothing on the market still today comes close.

Have a nice Day!

Writing about the Goodyear Wrangler MT R given 30% (305-75-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
I have been driving modified 4x4's for many years and always have used BFGs' (MT or KM2)
I was talked into these tyres by mates that I thought had an idea what a tyre should be able to do.
After the first 5000klm I took them off and threw them away.
They dont grip on either wet or dry bitumen.
They dont grip in the mud and are less than helpful on wet rocks
Goodyear you are a joke!
Apart from the complete lack of grip I got more flat tyres in this 5000klm than the other 2million klms I've traveled on BFG's

If you buy these tyres after this information you my friend are crazy.

Have a nice day
