Hi Barrabindi and belated thanks for the feedback on the Duratracs and pressures etc.
I've had a chance to use ours in anger since and confirm the same results as you. I could not be more happy with them on the road, such a comfortable ride on bog standard suspension. We we've done some very snakey and wet mountain roads in it and they are very surefooted on the bitumen.
Same story too offroad. We took it out to Lavuka on a wet weekend for a shakedown before the fitout and put it over a variety of rough going and the truck and the Duratracs performed very well indeed.
No issues at all with the tyres, almost tore the fuel tank off the truck however (very low mounted on the 637) and tore the front cab mounts with chassis flex which I'll have to post about separately. Other than that very capable.
Some pics, wheels and tyres before;
and after ;
I'm distresses... where's the bling gone???
My attempt to build something to go somewhere else...
I hope your going to wash those wheels!
Sorry Dan, I meant rims. My bad.
The rims are supplied by me, we still have several sets in stock if you need any send me a pm.
Hi John, I got a set of the 19.5 s from ATW and have been running them for a couple of years now. Can you give me a link to the Toyo tyre site for inflation. I have been running maily bitumen work at 65 psi unloaded and that is ok for highway but as soon as I get into the back roads and they are pot holed bitumen the ride is a bit rough. I would like to try and see if i can run at 50 psi ,.
Other than that the combination is great.
16" wheels with larger tyres would give you a better ride off road.
Bit of a hijack (Sorry Alan) but if you aren't after a pair of Alan's bling rims then I have a couple of sets for sale on eBay at the moment because I've gone for Alan's which for me were a better option, and I can recommend them, so I have these spare.
One set (4 rims) are "Andy's Australia" (Now part of Titan wheels) 19.5 super singles. Offsets are such that the front and back wheels line up in the same track and includes 2 x near new 19.5 tyres. Very solid boofy rims.
The other set are 5 x the original canter 4x4 rims with 4 x Michelin XL 9.00R16 with near new tread.
I should not have look at ebay, my daughter is looking for a postie bike.
