Tanzania Warnings and Dangers: 48 reviews and 29 photos

  Yet another ruined tyre
by ecoquester

The roads out to Ngorongoro Creater are the worst I have ever travelled, I Designed and built this trailer myself, thinking I had everything covered.
Only to realise at the wrong time the axle was totally under designed and under manufactured.
The road in and out of the creater cost me 3 new tyres.
A lesson well learnt, the trailer now sports a new axle Reverse engineered from a Landrover axle, with Landrover hubs bearings and hydrualic breaking system, along with Landrover Mags and BF Goodrich tyres.
Here's another tip, BF Goodrich are the best off road tyre in the world, that is why they are more expensive to purchase.
The addage is simple, you want cheap..... Buy expensive in the first place.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
