what wheels has it got? Avatar looks like 14" Pugs? Do you get the Toyo M65's over there? My bro just got some Goodyear TG's, I haven't seen them yet but they are suppose to be good. But again, not sure if you get them in the US.

Other wise you can take the Kumho road, but they are pretty hardcore offroaders.

Plans for LSD or welded rear? I'd love a LSD, but welded is just so much cheaper! Should be good to see what you come up with.

Enjoy your ride!

And because we don't get many of their tires everyone seems to say they are crap. I won't comment because I have never driven on them. But I will comment on the stupidity of other austrailans that say they suck, becaue they have never used them either.

I hear a lot of good about them in the US, but I also hear they aren't so good with wear vs the kumho.

Oh yeah! They are terrible on wear - often lasting less than 20,000 miles, and the bias ply versions will give you a good excuse to vist the spine doctor, then find a good hearing aid supplier..... but they are unbeatable off-road. They are the only thing that will handle the mud out here on the left coast. I can understand for some of the AUS guys attitude as they may not often see the wet conditions we have here 80% of the year.

The rubber is so damn hard on the bias-ply's that they get flat spots in them when they sit overnight in the cold, and it takes a few miles for the tires to "round out" again. Makes for an interesting wake up call.

Good idea Dave. We are gonna have to meet out at Daltons place since he can't drive it on city streets yet! I'll get out the survival kit and make the 1 hour adventure out to your place D. :lol:

Let us know.
