Toyota LandCruiser: replacement for a 100 series
It's the LandCruiser every time if you're heading into the outback. The truck itself is just about bulletproof and gets The Tick from me. Toyota's service and support in the bush is legendary and could make all the difference if you strike trouble.

Crank or bearing failure on Landrover Discovery 3
The best approach is to contact Landrover Australia directly, but when you do make sure you are armed with as much information about the failure as you can. A report by a mechanic with specialist knowledge of Landrovers on what caused the failure would help your cause.

If it's just one of the tyres on the vehicle I would suggest it's a problem with that tyre, I wouldn't think it was a balancing issue. I'd take it back to the tyre dealer and have them inspect it.
