I have Cooper ST Maxx tires in 10 ply E-rated tires on my truck. They come with Armor-Tek. When they were new I picked up a screw in them that flattened the tire. Learn how to install tire plugs and carry a good air compressor or better yet a CO2 tank for blowing up the tire. My tires are far more durable than any passenger car tire so...

Having used both the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 and eNTYRE C/S I am very impressed with their durability (and performance). Checking out both of them before they were mounted they felt rugged, tough. The eNTYRE C/S has aramid fibers in the sidewalls for extra durability.

I spent a couple of years in South East Asia where I seen a brand named Maxxis Tyre that were popular. Being the tire geek I am, I stopped by a Maxxis shop in Thailand and checked out their passenger, and tire truck tires. They were very durable feeling, definitely what is needed for a lot of those third world crater dotted roads. I see that Maxxis is also sold here, and I would give them a go, if for some reason I wanted to stray from Nokian. I don't know if the Maxxis lineup in Asia would be the same lineup as here, but worth checking out.

Dumbest reply of the day.

If you think about it, a nail kicked up by the front tire may actually stick in the rear tire before it gets trapped between the tire and the road. A harder tire would resist this slightly better than a new soft tire. Also a nail would have to be more perfectly aligned to penetrate a harder tread surface. I'd think most people would rather have newer tires, but if you only care about puncture resistance, a harder rubber compound should be better.

Allow me to add that rubber is orders of magnitude softer than pretty much every other solid material - meaning that a nail fairly easily penetrates a tire, regardless of whether it is hard rubber or soft rubber. That difference is pretty small in the big scheme of things.

This would be an excellent Uber tire, if you can fit them of course...

Maxxis looks interesting? however in my size they only have the MA-202 available in the US? Made in Taiwan. All the good ones are in Europe.
