What about tyre rotation? Are you guys regularly swapping sides?

Every 5k get them rotated only because Patrols are notorious at eating the outside of the front passengers side, old mate at the tyre shop reckons because they are heavy on the front end and most LH corners are bigger( think round about) turn right for a short turn or left for a big sweeping turn under power. Just my 2c anyway
Fish stories told here....some true !!!

When in doubt...exaggerate !!

Don't forget your tyre pressures

Keep an eye on them and adjust accordingly to Load speed and road conditions and you will have less wear and save on fuel costs.

I know I'm commenting on an old thread, but my Mickey t MTZ changed piped out pretty bad after 30,000. Lost full lugs etc. seemed I was not the only one. Many others complained about the same thing. They may have changed the compoud by now, it was a few years ago.

38 in simex centipede is what I'm running currently for the wet then km2 BFs 35s in the dry

Yep i get in and slay it before the casual dangler crew can get anywhere near most spots. I got sick of walking years ago. Its bit of a b.tch if u bog this rig need another mate of mine running 44s to pull it out if i can't sort it out with the front or rear winch n ground anchor.
