The new CST Landragon CL18M sized 35 x10.5-16 have landed
Keep reading if you are a hardcore off-road driver only.
If you want to ‘fly’ across rough muddy uneven terrain like this all terrain vehicle and remain surefooted you will need tyres that can grip better than coconut crab with its 300 newton grip strength.
The CST Land Dragon is everything you expect from it. An aggressive all terrain tire specialized in 4×4, and nothing is stopping it. This CL18M tyre model is a collaborative effort from Team Maxxis 4×4 Malaysia and CST international to tweak the already proven CST Landragon CL18 on the 35s.
Below are some of the new features of CL18M. The alphabet M represent Malaysia.
– Stronger sidewall grip and protection for more grip on rocks and deep ruts
– Longer lugs for better bite in clay type mud
– Lugs are angled deeper for more superior self cleaning
-Height of lugs are taller for durability and grip in mud and rocks
– Staggered lugs for strength and ease to cut for competition use .
– New rubber compound for superior grip on and off road use.
– Very affordable price at RM6XX for a quality tyre that performs.
Remember this, tires are one of the most important purchases you will make for your off-road vehicle.
Before you head to the local tire shop, think about the kind of driving you’ll be doing.
There are 2 major types of off-road tires available for four-wheel-drive vehicles in Malaysia:
- If your vehicle will be splitting its time between highway and off-highway use, it will need all-terrain tires. These tires feature a tread design with interlocking tread elements that provide good traction in dry snow, ice and mud, as well as on paved surfaces. They are relatively inexpensive and have good longevity.
- If you spend more time driving off-road, then you should consider mud-terrain tires. With aggressive tread patterns and larger lugs, these tires offer extraordinary gripping power in all kinds of off-highway terrain, especially wet snow and mud. They are also extremely durable, with super-tough sidewalls to absorb the impact of rocks and other off-road hazards. They will, however, set you back a few more dollars than all-terrain tires and will lose their tread faster.
