THESE new wheels from KMC maintain a traditional off-road and rugged design, yet feature plenty of modern attributes. Case in point is the traditional full-face modular design with a modern mesh spoke laid over the top. The simulated beadlock design comes with removable Torx head bolts; the two-piece KMC Pro Cap has a metal base ring and removable KMC logo for easy customisation; and there’s a KMC logo cast into lip by the valve stem. 17 x 8-inch and 17 x 9-inch wheels available in a variety of colours and tints.



MAXXIS Tyres has launched its RAZR AT811 in Australia, with the all-terrain joining the RAZR MT in the Maxxis shed. Much like its muddie companion, the RAZR AT features plenty of modern design elements. For example, the blade-shaped tread block design maximises off-traction; aggressive side-biter lugs help in the mud; the shoulder lug design and 'saw edge' shoulder blocks are built for tough off-road conditions; and a stone-ejecting shoulder groove eliminates the pesky build up of stones. The tyre is made using a high-strength polyester carcass construction and a high elasticity sidewall filler compound. In addition, the tyre features a three-ply sidewall on select sizes. The tyres are available in sizes 15 to 18 inches.



IMPROVE your 4x4's stopping power with a brake upgrade kit from the crew at Bendix. The upgrade kit includes Ultimate 4WD Brake Pads, which feature a specially compounded high performance ceramic material. These pads are based on OEM specs and more efficiently expel gas, water, dust and grit. Not only do the upgraded brake pads help you stop more efficiently, they'll also reduce noise and provide high temperature stability and excellent fade resistance. Bendix says there are also kit options for vehicles that have been raised. The kit covers most popular 4x4 vehicles and dual-cab utes.
