Cruiser 4500 Efi

I have a Landcruiser pick up and it's got a camper at the back. Together it weights 3.5 tons. I have Big Horns MT 762 on and did from Cape Town (South Africa) up to Zambia in to Angola and back 10 000km. Sand, Mud and rock the real african war roads you can get. I did 25 000km on the tyres on the monent. I run them O.3bar when the sand or mud gets very bad. That is very flat and not good for sidewalls. I did a lot of desert, sand and very bad rocky ereas as well. Not one flat tyre yet. I also had a lot of very good tyres in the past but I must say my next tyres will be Maxxis. I measured the tyres and with a heavy vechile it only worn 5mm. Exellent!!

0.3 bar (less than 5psi). Under a Cruiser that's impressive!

A mate changed to mickey thompsons got first blowout in years and was terrible in mud. Will keep on buying this tyre as it is perfect for me. Great in the mud and will carry heavy heavy loads in extreme conditions flat out.
Great tyre for carrying loads in hot conditions. Been taking them to the territory for last few years with no punctures. Perfect for mud, slightly better than the buckshot in mud.
Not so great on sand compared to other wider tyres which can be expected when comparing a 235 to a 265. Have to let pressure down and your OK, not the end of the world but annoying and time consuming.

I am looking at getting the same size 255 65 17, just wondering how they perform in the sand? On a scale of 1 -10 (10 being worst) how would you rate the road noise?

You could elaborate a little more on the answer. given that I'm evaluating installing that pneumatic measure, to get out of the tires rim 17

Foresters are just an Impreza in a different dress. They aren't an off-road vehicle and the AWD system isn't designed in a way to handle what big heavy muddies have to offer. Just go with a decent all terrain like the Fallen Wildpeak'. You'll also run the risk of damage to the centre diff and the weak as rear diff, unless you upgrade to the R180 LSD found in the Gen4 Liberty 3.0R-B

How do the side wall handle sticks,rocks etc has anyone experienced any issues in this area.

Honestly they are ok but a little soft they need more tread on the side walls like the 4x4 TRA6873R especially in mud, the tread on the side also protects the tyre from sticks, rocks slashing them.

I had one speared and penetrated through the wall by a twig about the diameter of a pencil. The tyre stayed up and got me home. I don't know how any other tyre would have managed in the circumstances.

Good to know that, thanks. I just recently acquired a pre owned trailer and it had these Maxxis 753 Bravos fitted. I guess ill use them till they need to be replaced.

I haven't had them on a trailer, but I imagine that the would be great though. They have performed well for me on a 4wd ute, 4wd Wagon and also a short wheelbase 4wd, and varied loads from nothing to fully loaded with over a ton on the ute.
