One of Megatyre’s country customers, who has been buying tyres from us since 1992, drove in last week to show us his latest vehicle; a 4wd Lada Niva Cossack. He had bought it so he could drive around the back of his rather large lifestyle
block which he says has got some incredibly steep hills. Our customer is obviously very proud of his Lada which you might think a bit funny, but this one, having been heavily rustproofed and garaged from new, was in excellent condition. It is generally acknowledged these are very tough little vehicles which are very, very good off road. Which is a good thing, because I drove it around the block and that was not much fun at all!
The Cossack had already been fitted with a heavy duty bullbar and winch but needed some incredibly aggressive mud tyres to drive through the lifestyle blocks winter mud. None of our mud terrain tyres were deemed to be sufficently aggressive so we ended up buying in and fitting some “tractor lug” tyres which surely will have the desired mud traction required.
Come and see us at Megatyre, Browns Bay, North Shore, Auckland for all your unusual tyre requirements.
