    We asked our readers what their favourite 4×4 tyres are and the result so far read:

    We wonder which tyres the 13 “Other” votes represent?

    This is quite an incomplete list – what about Hankook, Pirelli, Michelin, Yokohama etc etc

    Yep – this is indeed a very basic and limited list. I believe it is related to the limitation on the number of available options per poll? Then, in addition there is also the debate about AT vs MT…..never ending indeed….

    i guess if we had to choose from a list of 22 possible makes/types – one would not want to vote.

    However i do agree with cecilh that Yokohama should be added.
    and guess an AT tyre would be best voted for, as an average all terrain.

    but knowing the best kind of MT tyre would be beneficial aswell.

    I couldn’t agree more.
    There are so many brands and so many variants.
    Again the first question should be what do want to do with your tyres, then select whats best for the application.
    BFG pretty much own the market because of their popularity but are by no means with the front runners in terms of offroad quality, for many happy km on tar, yeah they are great.
    I have run 2 sets of BFG KM2 muds, a set of 32″ and a set of 37″ and offroad performance they are decent but only for the first few trips, then chunks of rubber start falling off due to their really hard rubber compound and the tyres become very nasty on the road then.
    I am currently running a set of Maxxis Bighorn 35″ which have a much softer compund so want last 100,000km but while they get me there close they are far more comfortable and I dont need to rebalance them after every trip.
    We are very limited to the greats in SA, but keep in mind, GoodYear Wrangler MTR’s and GoodYear Wrangler Duratracs are out of this world, we dont get Toyo much in SA but Hankook are currently the best MTR in the States..

    Just my few cents..
