Set of four. Fantastic mud tires. One of the Best in the World - see details below.


There are about 15-20% worn (very little road use).
Currently on steel wheels (may throw those in if interested) on Toyota Landcruiser 1997 - 80 model.
They air-down well (I have photos and maybe "prints" to show footprint at different psi settings) and very strong sidewalls (Kelvar reinforced)
Moving overseas via wee detour: Alaska, Canada, US, Mexico, Central America, South America, Africa, Europe, UK, Ireland see Http://TheLongWayHome.us

Could consider in part exchange with RTT, maybe fridge and other overland 'stuff'

Details:
Two-stage lug to enhance traction especially on soft soils. Alternate protruded lugs give wider tread groove area for mud diggin and self cleaning.
Y shaped lateral grooves for maximum grip and traction on rocky surfaces and a secret "weapon" for champion rock climbing in competition.
Massive protruded lugs for extra traction in mud holes.
Double protective ribs at the buttress groove to tend off sharp objects from penetrating the tyre at the grooves.

The Jungle Trekker 2, a new addition to the DMIB stable of 4x4 tyres is a product designed and developed, after technical input from Chris Hummer and exhaustive research and testing, by the Sime Darby Technology Centre. Several tests were also carried out in the Malaysian jungle as well as the arid and semi-desert terrain of the Australian Outback where the tyre withstood hot, cold and slippery mud conditions without any hitches.

It's unique pattern with two-stage protruding lugs and open U-shaped grooves provides excellent traction and driving stability with self-cleaning properties in soft muddy conditions. The Y-shaped lateral grooves together with the centre tread blocks, maximises grip and traction on rocky surfaces. The upper sidewall is reinforced with protective ribs to prevent against penetration damage. The extended thicker ribs on the sidewall helps withstand severe scuffing in off-road conditions. It's strong sidewalls allow the tyre to operate at very low pressure for maximum grip and floatation.

The Jungle Trekker 2 with its tough construction and aggressive tread design made its debut at the Simex Rainforest Challenge '99 and has since then proven its versatility and durability by outperforming the competition in major 4x4 international competitions including the 4x4 Rhino Trophy '99 and ARB Xtreme Winch Challenge series held in Australia and the Esso Off-Road Man Challenge '99 in Thailand.
