30,000 Miles and still going...

I've just clocked up 30,000 miles in my Defender on Goodyear MTR 235/85R16 tyres and I have to say what a great tyre they are.
If your looking to replace your tyres I'd recommend giving theses ago

I've just changed my BFG Mud Terrains on the Hilux, 22k to a set of four.

The new compound isn't as good as it used to be.

I hope my Goodyear MTR's last as well as that! Fitted them on my 110 probably 2 years to replace the Michelin XZL's which are always a right pain to get hold of. The MTR's certainly grip better and have slightly lower road noise than the XZL's, but think my mpg figure has dropped a tiny bit.
