Landcruirser’s New Tires

dsc03984.jpg

After my little incident I was lucky to get off with just having to change my tires. The vibration was just too much, as soon as I hit 80 kph and went faster the rougher the steering wheel vibrated so my only choice was to change my tires.

I have had the Bridgestone Duelers for a while now and I think they are pretty bad tires since they are pretty bad when I brake and lose grip faster then I would like. My first choice was the BF Goodrich All-Terrains but it seems they are expensive and people don’t buy them in Kuwait, they go for 60 KD a tire, and for an SUV it seems to be expensive. I went to Al-Mailem Tires on Canada Dry street around 6:30pm on Thursday to change all the tires and get an alignment. They have a very large selection of tires, and I thought they might have the ones I wanted but they didn’t. They had different on-road SUV tires available but I didn’t want just on-road tires, I wanted them to handle in dirt as well so my only option for All-Terrains they were the Toyo AT Open Country.

They mounted the first one just to see how it looks and I have to say it didn’t look too shabby so I went ahead with them. At first they were 52 KD a tired, then he dropped it to 39 KD a tire and a 10 KD computer alignment for a total of 166 KD. I was watching them mount the tires, and I could watch them all day I just enjoy went new tires are mounted. These new tire balance computers are amazing, I was standing next to the guy doing it and asking him questions.

As soon as they were done installing the new tires I went for the alignment and you stay in the vehicle while they make your adjustments which is really fun. Overall these tires are much better then the Bridgestones from the first day of use.

  1. Mabrook on the new tires! I think I am due for 6 new tires! When I brake I get some vibration yest my brakes are new! I too want all terrain tires of tires that lean towards off roading cause they look better! :oP

    I am also thinking of putting 315/75R16 tires with the lettering on the inside so that the while paint on the tire won’t show!

    I am due to change my tires for my Nissan Armada. I wanted to put Michelin tires but they said they don’t have my size. So I will give it a try and go to Toyota. Can you tell me where their location?

    Come on, u have michelin tires right on the opposite side and u get TOYO tires! I just hope you get to ur destination safe :P

  6. I need 4 new tired for the Wrangler. I also need an alignment since the front right wheel is practically completely worn off so there must be something wrong with the alignment.

    I wanted to get BF Goodrich tires for the wrangler, was thinking of adding the largest sized tires i possibly can without a lift and thats 31×10.5

  7. Stallion: alah ebarik ib 7ayatik! Bes isn’t 315/75R16 huge??!? I don’t mind the white showing really!

    Laialy: yup! I used to get my tires from Tire Rack!

    Zahed: I will shoot you! Then I will beat you with a shawarma!

    Waleed: Go to Canada Dry street! You can’t miss it! Al Mailam’s new tire place!

    Mansour: Michelen are good street tires, not good for off-road situations. Michelens are good at certain parts just like Pirelli!

    Mark: Thats a cool site, buy you need to modify your suspension a bit to make it smoother! You woul be surprised what you can do with it to improve the ride quality! Get BF Goodrich tires, but you need a one month lead time to get them!

    How is the Toyo tires going for you? Are they noisy on the road? do you feel some vibration? I am planning to replace my Armada tires next Saturday and I am considering either Toyo, Goodyear or Yokohama.
    Please provide me with your feedback if possible on my email
