what are good tires for a land cruiser?
what are good tires for a land cruiser? I had Michelin Latitude tires on my Land Cruiser and they have to be replaced after 40K miles. Is there something better out there?
That all depends on what type of road conditions and speeds you travel. I have had good luck with Michelin tires on the highway but found them lacking in off road capabilities, I then tried BFG's AT tires, started off good but lost traction and tread way too soon, possibly too soft a compound for the tread, then believe it or not but I had real good results from Firestones AT's they did surprising well both on and off road, beat the Michelin in off road, but did not last as long as the Michelin's but far superior to the BFG. Working on a set of TOYO's ATS now, I think they are going to be a good tire, so far they have done good in the rain and the snow, could be better off road but still not bad, tend to be a little noisey on dry pavement with the windows down but livable. So maybe my experience can help you decide.
thanks for info. very helpful. i have been pretty loyal to Michelin but was just surprised that the tires did not make 40K. not any off roading done on them. mostly highway and driving kids around town. but my mechanic said that driving around town kills the tire more then anything
I was surprised to find that Michelin does make a 30K tire I thought they started at a 50K rating. So what are the tires you have on there now?
the tires are rated for 50K but i am barely making it to 40K with them
That does seem odd for Michelin's. The last set I drove exceeded the mileage they said they were good for and that was on a 4X4 too, they were 50k tires and they went 60K and would have done more but bad weather made me change them out.
Michelin MX Mud/Snow 160000 Mi and that's all I've had and nothing has stopped her yet !!
