2019 Toyota Hilux 2.4 D-4D 2WD Tyre Comparison

Let's take a look at what to consider when choosing car tyres, as well as how our recommended tyres above stack up against each other!

Traction

As you might have guessed, the primary role of tyres is to give your Toyota Hilux traction on the road.

Traction to grip the road and accelerate quickly, but also traction to allow you to brake and come to a stop quickly in wet and dry conditions.

Tyres with excellent traction performance have shorter stopping distances, which can mean the difference between a near miss and a collision while out on the road.

Excellent traction also means better contact and grip on a variety of terrain, and less likelihood of getting bogged. This is especially important for SUV tyres, which are more likely to see off-road action.

How We Measure This

To compare traction performance between tyres, we use both the standardised test data carried out by the European Union, plus the Uniform Tyre Quality Grading (UTQG) system data out of the USA.

As you can see from the table above, the All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre scored the highest, with a grade of B, whereas the All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre scored the lowest, with a grade of B.

You can also see these results in the chart below.

Noise

The dominant source of noise from your Toyota Hilux while driving on the highway is your tyres. A typical tyre produces over 70 decibels of noise, with some tyre products being considerably noisier.

Excessive noise makes for an unpleasant journey, so it's worth looking for tyres that are less noisy.

All terrain and mud tyres tend to be noisier than standard road tyres, as the large tread blocks mean more friction on the road and therefore, more noise.

How We Measure This

The European Union collects comprehensive data on the noise produced by all tyres sold in the Europe. Where available, we use this data to compare Australian tyres.
EU Grade
(A - C)

OptiLife SUVNo data available for this tyre
All-Terrain T/A KO2B (74 dB)2 times as noisy

In terms of noise, the All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre scored the highest, with a grade of 74.3 dB, whereas the All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre scored the lowest, with a grade of 74.3 dB.

These values might seem quite similar, but remember that the decibel scale is logarithmic, so small changes can have a big effect.

Fuel Efficiency

The US Department of Energy estimates that around 25% of the fuel consumption of a vehicle is attributable to the tyres.

This is more than you might think, and it means that tyres with poor fuel efficiency fitted to your Toyota Hilux could be adding hundreds of dollars to your yearly fuel bill.

While the upfront cost of a new set of tyres is important, it's also worth considering how much extra you will pay over the life of your tyres.

How We Measure This

The European Union collects excellent fuel efficiency data (they call this rolling resistance) on all tyres sold in the Europe. Where available, we use this data to compare Australian tyres.

Warranty

Many tyre manufacturers and suppliers in Australia now offer a warranty when you purchase a set of their tyres. This warranty is usually in the form of a wear life guarantee.

Typically, they either offer a time-based guarantee (eg. 6 years) or a distance based guarantee (eg. 60,000 km).

The warranty gives you peace of mind that your tyres will last either a certain amount of time or distance, otherwise you will be entitled to some compensation (usually pro-rated).
