    What winter tyres are best for a Navara NP300?

    Been using Yokohama geolanders for last few years on Mazda b2500, big difference between the AT tyres that the truck came with , especially on wet roads.

    what level of detail?

    Hey up, just keep going with the saw mate and the detail will come with time, I was tempted by chisels/power gouges etc when I started but stuck with chainsaw only and 7 years later glad I stuck to saw only.
