4x4 Australia: All-Terrain Tire Test R17 2019
Seven tires pounded on - and off -road to find suitable all-terrain rubber for your 4x4.
The 17-inch tire test included models from Hankook, Nexen, Maxxis, Dunlop, Bridgestone, Goodyear and Falken, which were installed on an Isuzu D-Max LS-U pickup. Tests were held in Queensland: the tires were tested for braking on dry and wet asphalt, for cornering, and also for off-road performance on gravel, stones and dirt. The tests were carried out using the “blind” method - the experts behind the wheel did not know which tires were currently installed.

Jack of all trades pick lands squarely in the middle of the pack.
Dunlop Grandtrek AT25
Grandtrek revels in the wet, but not in the mud.
Nexen Roadian AT Pro RA8
Nexen exemplifies "you get what you pay for" mantra.
Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure
Off-road focus fails to wrangle the points.
