    I replaced the bridgestones on my ute with Khumo tyres. I thought I'd give them a shot but didn't expect too much from a sub $300 tyre. But they're excellent! Grip every bit as well as the bridgestones wet or dry and it looks like they'll last quite a bit longer. I only got 16,000km out of the bridgestones but these have done 11,000 and aren't even half worn. Only thing I've noticed against them when I drove out from the tyre-fitter is that the sidewalls feel a little softer but it hasn't been an issue at all and I can push them every bit as hard as the originals. The Khumo's I have are part of the Ecsta range but I can't remember the product code.

    I'd definitely get the Khumos again. I've had dunlop (liked them better than bridgestones but the sport maxx are about the same price) and my old ute cam fitted with falken ziex - awful awful tyres!

    Why bother?
    If you go for the maxxis tires look at the victra M4-S model they are the next version of the victra MA-Z1.
