Ok guys, had the new tyres put on today. I had to pick from the continental or General range to get the 25% credit off the new ones so I ended up with the grabber at2. Ended up with a pretty good deal with everything being coincided and I have to say the boys at Bob Jane were very accommodating. I loved the look of the SRL's but the drive home after the new ones went on I gotta say I am a happy camper at this stage and it was sooo damn quiet and smooth

Cheers Justo

I'd better update on my tyres too! My Yokohamas are nearing end-of-life now, getting a tad close to the wear markers but still gripping the road well wet or dry.

They're nearing 70,000km on the road. That's 70km travelled per dollar invested with superior grip to the BFGs.

The BFGs saw 80,000km for $1440 which equates to about 55km per dollar.

I'm ordering another set of Yokies.

Default Yokohama ats

Just out of curiosity, were your yokos made in Japan or Thailand?
I had a bit of a run of punctures on a set of Thai Yoko Ats.
Suspect it may have had something to do with the local roads getting a layer of cheap sharp rock on it last summer.
I'd like to keep the faith in yokos coz I do like them as a brand.
Just seem to have had better luck on the dirt roads of SA with BFG and Toyo.

Mine have a DOT of "473F" and a "Made in Thailand" stamp as well (the code 47 confirms a Thai production).

There's been no chipping, cracking, splitting or other signs of poor tyre performance. Road conditions vary from decent highway (both bitumen and concrete) to jagged rock-in-dirt forest trails, traversing both while towing as well.

Cheers old Tony
The Yoko Ats were an absolute bargain I've still got a set of 275 70 16s Yoko Ats on an older Mazda dualcab and it sticks to the road like a wrx 😁

I will update this thread when I have done some miles on them but first impressions these AT2's are a breath of fresh air compared to what I was driving on and since putting them on I have herd some stories about how good these really are compared to the likes of cooper and bfg's and people that have had them on before swear by them. I guess only time will tell.

Cheers Justo
