This can be a mine field when you ask advice regarding tyres because there are so many different variables that can be bought up. Such as budget, car size and weight, tyre purpose, value for money, tyre size, brands or even what your mate told you in the pub. Over the past 20 years of off-roading and touring I have been lucky and unlucky in my tyre selection. I say unlucky because some haven't worn to well and just haven't lasted. I have had mud tyres, serious off-road aggressive types, all terrains and of course the standard on road tyres when you get when you purchase a new 4wd. It's hard too because you want to keep up with your mates or even go further on the tracks, but on the other hand you want good on road performance and wear.
I am very impressed with the Cepek’s so far, with several desert trips, a lot of highway driving, towing a heavy camper trailer and some bush adventures they are performing well. These tyres are claimed to be a combination of 60% road plus sand and 40% dirt plus mud so I reckon they are a great outback tourer tyre. Speaking of outback driving I have noticed that the design of the tyres seem to keep minimal flicking of stones onto the car and even mud seems to spray back down and not out onto the side of the car. Keeping the car a bit cleaner and fewer stone chips on the paint.
I heard some one say once that you soon forget about the price when durability, reliability and performance are the only factors that you talk about. At the time of purchase I paid in vicinity of $355 per tyre fitted to my 4wd, and haven't regretted it to this day.
For a great all round All Terrain tyre I definatly recommend the Dick Cepek FCII tyres.
