Hello fellow Conqueror owners,

I realise tyres are personal choice, with budget and type of use required. But looking for general advice and experience regarding tyre brands as we are looking to replace our stock tyres on out 2014 Commander S. Our current size is 245 70 16. with 12 inch electronic brakes fitted.

leaning toward Cooper , but interested in other thoughts, experience and advice, on size and type of off road tyres.

cheers

We got Cooper's on the truck but haven't changed the standard tyres the conqueror came with yet which are buckshot tyres

For my money you can't go past MIckey Thompson MTZ's grip/wear/reliability second to none.

Second choice BFGoodrich KM2's, nearly as good as a MTZ but wear a little quicker.

Not a fan of Coopers at all.

Haven't had Mikey Thompson's in the past but have had both Cooper's and the BFG's SVX17 mentioned as well as some Goodyear Wranglers. For my money though, Toyo Open Country A/T II are as good as, and in many instances, better than the common tyres that people often go to. Quality is second to none - we have only ever had a single weight added the rim to balance which speaks to the uniformity of the tyre itself. On our UEV490 we have LT265/65R17 fitted which is the same as those fitted to our Triton tow vehicle.

Toyo's are a good tyre,
Still manufactured in Japan I believe.

MT's on a trailer would last 5 years plus. Reliable tyre with great strength and side walls

They fit well, wider track more height same wheels and tyres as my L cruiser ,more in perspective for the size of the wheel arch and trailer, the original wheels and tyres were too small .
