i was either gonna get the BFGs or Michellin Latitude for about the same price ended up with BFG since they are far superior offroad but would love to give the Michellin ATs a try just for the road comfort. in 4-5 years i hope!

way less aggresive but every d40 i see around runs on these

Bob Jane will Do BFG K02's for $300 a pop fitted (265/75/16). At least they did for me. Done about 45,000KM on them so far and there is probably about 70% tread. That includes a fair bit of driving on Corrugated roads.

BFG AT is a good all-around tire. Not noisy on the highway.

My D40 had Michellin Latitude Cross's on when I bought it. They're great on bitumen and gravel, and they've handled the limited offroading I've done pretty well. I think they're pricey though so I'll probably be shopping around when it comes time to replace them.

I bought my 2010 (Spanish built)D40 STX brand new and it had the Good Year tyres on it. They were pretty good (and very quiet)in all but wet dirt conditions. They lasted 48,000 kms before I switched to BFG A/T's, which I have had on nearly every 4wd that I have owned. They performed well but were well and truly stuffed by 50,000 kms. I have recently replaced them with BFG A/T KO2's so will be interested to see how they perform and how long they last. They are 265/65/17's and cost $315 a corner from Bob Janes in Adelaide.
It is better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth (or hit the send key) and remove all doubt.

Toyo MTs and Toyo AT2s are both awesome tyres too
Ive always had BFGs or toyos
Seem to be similar quality and price, depending a bit on whats on special
One made in USA, one made in Japan
