Just had a blowout on front near side. Tyre had a slow puncture anyway.
Want same tyres on both sides of front axle.
Locally can get a pair of TOYO 235/75R15s
Anyone had any experience of these tyres?
Wanted Hankook Dynapro but apparently not made anymore, same with Avon Rangers.
TOYOs are only £78 each, seems cheap and I donít want cheap performance!

I've fitted Nexen Roadians on the front, and they have proved good for noise, wear, grip and comfort.

I agree, no cheap rubber.

Can the 2.5 Delica use 30" * 9.5" tyres  Question They look good.

Last year, I had three good-ish tyres, replaced all four of them with the above size (thanks to Lewis suggestion)

Years ago, I didn't care about tyre condition, as long as they complied with tyre depth law.

Previously I had new tyres on front or rear as needed. Different makes/compound etc.
Having a new set of four, all the same - What a difference  Smile

Before the new ones, I could probably slide my Deli on sharp bends.
Now I reckon, a hard turn could park my Deli on its side  Rolling Eyes

Ian, Toyo has been making tyres since 1945.  If they were crap, they wouldn't still be making them.

In the 80's they started making them for Continental and Goodyear.

In reply to Deker: standard L300 wheels are only 6J, L400s 6.5J. That 1/2 inch makes a critical difference.

Who has standard wheels on an L300?.
235s wouldnít go on a standard wheel!.

235 is slightly bigger than you should theoretically go on a 6J - mine are 235 Front and 265 rear on 7J. 235 would therefore be correct for your original 6.5Js, Lewis (unless your first Deli was a L300).

Got my TOYO Open Country A/Ts fitted to the front today.
£156 fitted and balanced.
Must say they are nice and quiet on the road , just have to wait and see green laneing but look to have better tread than the Avonís.
I have kept the good Avon Ranger A/T if any one wants it as a spare.

You could bring it with you to Wood Farm, if you have space. Someone might take it off your hands!
