anyone have any input on tyres for my Deo'. im not after anything special as its my daily driver and i dont feel the need for an aggressive tread, maybe just a decent A/T.

they are 205/80R16 on stock JJ rims by the way.

Cheers,
Leedo.

There is not a huge choice in that size - no one much seems to go for them any more, but you can fit 235/70R16 on your 6" rims and they are the same outside diameter - and just about everyone makes something in that size, so it just depends on what you want to spend - Maxxis at the cheap end or BFGs at the expensive end.

I am using a set of these and reckon they are pretty good

they are Bridgestone D694s, but 265/70s on 7"rims & so a bit big unless you want to change rims

got a quote for Maxxis A/T 205/80's $154each fitted. i would be interested in something a little wider but if its gunna bust my budget ill stick with a set of 205's. front ones are pretty wore across whole surface and the outter edge on both of then are bald..camber issue maybe??

Could be camber or toe-in, but sagged front springs can do that as well - and thats an easy fix, just crank up the torsion bars a few turns

Nankang does a 215/75R16
Nankang Wide Conquror A/Ts around the $145/tyre very good tyres heaps of tread lots of grip
I had them in a 215/75R15 on my xtrail for 2yrs ith lots of off rd abuse
no cuts or chips never staked they loved the mud & rocks gave plenty of grip on tarmac the only place they weren't too good was on stockton as they have a very open self cleaning V shape tread & they dig down to get traction off rd which is gr8
they are very good touring tyres as well did lots of interstate travelling with them on tarmac & out back tracks including bulldust in the 2 yrs I had them they only wore down 3mm from 14mm

I can also recommend Delta Serradial A/Ts I currently have a set of these on my Terracan & just love them even more that the Nankangs

205/80r16
205r16
225/75r16
235/70r16

All equivalent sizes and any tyre guy would or should give u selection from these sizes depending on ur budget and how ur gonna use them.
