Axiobibs last about 5k hrs here and presures / performance would I suspect be a different league to the BKT

Expensive but you do get what you pay for imo when it comes to tyres

I have heard good things about bkt but never had them apart from on a muckspreader. After a long run of Michelin decided their tyres are not what they used to be so have just bought a set of trelleborgs but they are noticeabley narrower at the same size

Go for Michelin’s, I’ve had 600/60x30 trelleborg split at 3500 hours, fitted a bkt I f tyre that is showing stress marks at 1500 hours.

In my opinion people find Bkt good because of the cheap price. We had a set on our JD, but the wheel slip and lack of traction on peat fields brought out the worst side of cheap tyres.

Trelleborg is my choice, because it will grip even on ice whereas Michelin will get you killed on ice. Bkt's were better on ice than Michelin, but still very dangerous.

BKT looks prety good performance for around half the money of Michelins. Just worry about the wear and life span of them

Trelleborg for situations where there is a lot of hrs in a short time frame ie 3 to 5 years, we haven't found a tire that can compete with them from that aspect.
If its going to take say 8 to 10 years to wear them out then we've found that's typically the people who have splitting issues.
