Standard Ute Tyre Hard Wearing & Good Milage
Basically always had these fitted and replaced with the same each time around. I get great mileage from them and being readily available from most fitters you can normally get a good price. Last 2 purchased were via Bob Janes, probably not the cheapest place around but I had two punctures that could not be repaired so didn't have much time to phone around for a better price.
Brilliant tyres, I won't use anything else
I replaced the original Michelin (and wider) tyres that came with my cab chassis ute with these and haven't looked back. With the old tyres I had a couple scary experiences including an emergency brake (no load) on the freeway that threw my ute sideways for no apparent reason. Since swapping to these Yokohama's they've saved me a couple times at least including when a semi (no trailer) jumped into the fast lane in front of me leaving me nowhere to go (no load and no ABS) at 100kph in the rain, totally I thought I was a gonner but somehow mainta...ined control and pulled up enough in time despite the hard brake and wheels locking up. They were originally described to me as the most "car like" truck tyres. They're a little softer but with the way they handle in the wet I've just kept going back to these, I won't touch anything else.
This was fitted to my mahindra genio and I must say the rear of the vehicle rolls a lot making my driving far less comfortable and I really do feel a lot of roll even with load.
It's a very light tyre as compared to my bridgestones that was fitted to vehicle.
Recently had a full set of these tyres fitted to my works Transit bus to replace a set of Michelins. These tyres are brilliant. Quiet riding, do not thump or crash like the Michelins, and handle the wet really well. The difference took a bit to get used to, i.e. lighter steering, a touch more body roll due to softer walling, but to my amazement am scoring at least another 80 kms to a tank of fuel. Highly recommended. The works ute is being fitted with a set of these next week.
Excellent value for money.
