  • Another A/T thread

    OK guys, hit me up with some decent A/Ts, I haven't looked into them for a while. Gonna run two sets of tyres on the next paj at this stage so I'm gonna go (probably) stock size A/Ts as my daily boots.

    I'm after a strong touring level tyre so preferably a ply rating of 10 or as close to as possible and of course LT construction. Preferably not costing me a kidney for a set however. Doesn't have to be particularly aggressive but I'd like to be able to do short day trips to easy-moderate areas in them as required. Thinking along the lines of the Falken Wild Peak A/T or the Mickey T STZ (ATZ P3 probably a bit too aggressive since I'll have a second set of M/T). D697s seem to be a bit hit and miss of late from what I've read so not particularly keen on those, but happy to be convinced otherwise.

    Thanks in advance

      Grabber AT2 and the Toyo M55 both seem to get rave reviews. The M55 is Tyrepower's largest selling AT, especially to the minesites etc.

      I will most likely be going for the Grabber AT2 on mine as they are cheaper.

        Not sure about price but the Cooper AT³ looks like a good rubber, most of the LT sizes are 10 ply rated, mates old man runs them in LT265/70/17 as his normal rubber (has STT's as play tyres) and has been really impressed with them. bag out pretty well, look nice and not too loud...

            TC, I was going to suggest Mickey Thompson 4 rib, but as you dont want to go with an overly aggressive A/T, I would seriously consider the Pirelli Scorpion ATR. Have put them on my partners NP & they are a brilliant tyre. Would also consider the Toyo Opats as had them in the past & they werent too bad, but for the perfect compromise, find the Pirelli's hard to beat.

                  Thanks for that all, some great suggestions there. Will go through them all later today.

                  Now, at risk of opening a huge can of worms...............

                  Has anyone ever had their ESC fitted car delivered from Mitsubishi with larger OD tyres and if so do you reckon this could be argued as enough to get around the current ESC regulations?

                  Main reason I'm going to run two sets is because I don't like going outside of roadworthy regs and I'm planning to wait for the LS Suspension NCOP review results (think it's being finalised in the next month or two by memory) until I buy my play tyres as I'm hoping they will make the ESC section a bit more user friendly. If not I'm hoping I'll find a friendly engineer who is willing to certify my car with a lift and tyre setup. But if getting the car delivered with bigger tyres would get around that I'll be jumping on it (gonna be delivered with A/Ts anyway).

                  As a related side note, anyone else read the article in the ARB magazine that came out recently regarding OME setups being tested by Bosch (apparently the ESC experts in Aus) and they found that the lifted suspension actually improved handling and the ESC response? (due to better quality components, but still! Big news!)

                        Yeah, just very hesitant with the ESC restrictions. Tempting to just do it but I'd hate to write off a lambo or something and have them attribute it to reduced braking capability due to larger tyres or some rubbish. Anyone got any idea if getting it delivered from the manufacturer with larger tyres is enough to get around it? CAN mitsu actually do anything RE reprogramming the ECU parameters? (god these requirements are a joke )

                          I recently got a set of Kuhmo AT K260. 31×10.5×15 LT at $195 a corner, fitted and balanced. Can't complain at this stage. Won a jacket in their promotion comp as well
