Cabstar tyres

Recommended Posts

Evening all 

 

I run a 04 Reg cabstar tipper and was wondering what tyres people run on them as I’m sick of its ability as soon as it sees a bit of mud anywhere. 

 

Looking at Insa turbo Sahara tyres around £80 a corner 215 75 15

 

what other tyres do people use? 

 

Thanks

Save your money Simon, I tried a few different makes of tyres when I had cabstars, they didn't make a blind bit of difference. Good truck if you stay on the hard ground.

there not a bad old truck at all and your 04 plate with the 3ltr in it is a proper work horse and pulling machine, i have one and yes the are crap of road and you really have to be gentell with them when on grass if i was going to fit 2 new tyres to the rear i would go for a good all terrain tyre my self,

Michelin Agilis Alpin - Mud and snow. These made a massive difference on our vehicle. 25k out of them so far. Quality french tyre.

I put a set of those on one of mine, probably the best of the lot but still fairly rubbish.

I think they are a good truck, just rubbish off road. Mine were both single rear wheel, don't know what the double rear wheel are like.
