Hi guys, I thought I would post an update to how the SRL's are going...... And we'll there not, sort of. A few months ago they started to cause the steering wheel and cab to shake at speeds of 80-110kms so after hours of balancing rotating and alignments etc to no avail of over the passed few weeks I ended up having a meeting with the Continental rep today and it appears that they are wearing badly due to feathering "heel and toe" anyway I have done just shy of 50k on them and only worn 5mm of tread and that's even wear too so as far a milage they have been awesome and if I didn't have the shaking/ vibrating issue I would probably get 100k or more. Any way looks like I will be replacing them under warranty, sort of 25% credit back is all they will give me so I'm Pretty bummed as I loved those tyres. Now I'm back to square 1 in regards to what tyres to go for. The rep is trying to get me onto the grabber at2's. Keen to here anyone how has had good or bad feed back on them.

Cheers Justo

Mate I have the Hankook Dynapro AT-M's on mine. They are the most underrated tyre.
Just about to clock up 110 000kms on them and they still have 5mm tread on them.
When they start to feather on the front edges, I just rotate front to back and all is good.

Very very highly recommend them.
Have a look at my build thread or http://www.navara.asia/showthread.php?t=32601 thread

He said, she said, ford or Holden, I,m on my second set of cooper s/t maxx,s. I got 83,000 out of my last set, knowing where I live and the Roads I drive on, I,m very happy with those km,s. Backing onto a state forest I,m in and out of the bush, a lot of gravel roads plus single lane asphalt rds. All these things mean my tyres cop a hard life. So I,m impressed with my coopers, better than the 40 thou I used to get on my Goodyear wranglers
