Toyota HiLux 2006: What are the best tyres?

Asked by Paul

After recently fitting two new BFG A/T 245/70/16 tyres to the rear of a 2006 Toyota Hilux 4x4 it now has very poor directional stability and very bad oversteer. The car is dangerous to drive on country roads at speed; it's like driving with tyres at 10 psi. The front tyres were the same brand and type, but about half worn, and when I put them on the back and moved the new tyres to the front the car drive ok. Have you heard of this problem before?

The BFG tyre is regarded by the industry as one of the best of its type, but what you’re feeling is a characteristic of the type of tyre and not related to the brand. Any tyre of this type, with the large tread blocks, moves around and feels uncomfortable, but the movement reduces as the tyre wears and blocks wear down. They then feel better, which is why the half-worn tyres felt better when you put them on the rear. It would also feel better if you replaced all four tyres at the same time.
