Deestone tyres for pickup any good now?

Recommended Posts

Could only see old review for discontinued tyre but is this Deestone brand any good .? My local Blacks in Phimai has a promotion for 4 tyres 245-70- 16 at around 10500 vs Bridgestone at 25,000. It’s for my brother in laws Isuzu pickup so not quite as critical as my own on which I have factory fitted Bridgestones,but of course I don’t want any false economies or dangerous tyres . Maxiss was another option which has a cheaper basic price but no promotion so more expensive

I think we have Deestone on our old pickup or they could be Maxxis !! We went with a cheaper brand as we don't drive fast at all and not very far normally. We paid under 10k for the set and they are fit for purpose. On our Ranger, we replaced OEM tyres with Michelin but they were 20k plus..

I like Bridgestones but say no more 👍 when my Bridgestones on my new truck wear out will put Deestones my wife's nephew has them on his Vigo which drive from time to time, no problem af4er I put the correct psi in em. 😁

Mine been on over 4 years, no issues, and way cheaper.

For a vehicle that sees max 120 k no problem.

We have premium tires on our Teana because I drive it fast.

My 4 year old pickup with 90000 kilometres is showing hardly any wear on the original Bridgestones. I’m very conscientious about pressures ( a hangover from track days) and always check with my digital gauge when cold to ensure 29psi when cold. Just got it back from a service at my local Isuzu and they were 36 psi when I measured cold this morning. God knows what they pumped them up to when doing it while hot! They are mostly a good dealer on everything else but Do they not really understand the importance of tyre pressures in Thailand ?!

When the OEM tyres on our Suzukis wore out we replaced them with Deestone. There didn't seem to be any negatives. 

OK for BIL.

Must be hard as a rock to last so long with so little wear

Deestone is a large well established Thai tyre manufacturer with competitive prices I would have no problem using them instead of the more expensive brand names.
