I've not come across any need for mud tyres in connection with boating and they knock hell out of suspension bushes/shockers/dampers in everyday use. Would probably put AT pattern on, if I wasn't so pleased with the "Macho" look of my MT's... sad, I know...
Are they BFG mud terrains??? Thought they would last better than that!!! I have Colway M/T on my 110 - brilliant tyres and only Ģ45 each - normally wouldn't touch remoulds but Colway are OK and as there isn't much Motorway use no probs - wear has been greater than I thought - they have done about 15,000 miles and are about 1/2 worn now.

Chunky tyres are great in mud and deep snow but not so good on wet roads etc - on sand they are useless cos they dig in - best tyres on sand are almost bald and aired down to about 10psi for more floatation.

Wasnīt looking for serious off road use but if the oppotunity arose wouldnīt mind giving it a crack! I wanted something that gave me loads of road miles, were cheap and didnīt handle like a truck on ice, great suggestions guys and will give your suggestions further investigation.

But Humphries Tyre & Exhaust can sometimes be even cheaper. They are only in Reading and Bracknell though, and I haven't found a web site for them

Try here :- http://www.tyretest.com/4x4_reifen/

It may at least give you a guide, it would be interesting to know if the reviews are a true reflection of what people have or think of them

Talking of tests on tyres I remember an big review in LRO a while ago - one of the best of the AT tyres was the Avon - the one fitted as standard by Land Rover. Despite this very few people buy them as an aftermarket tyre as they just aren't considered "sexy"!!!

..ah yes.. Rangemasters! Me, I had several sets, mostly given to me by Avon, when the treads started to come off the carcass...including in the middle of the Pyrenees (Sp?).. most inconvenient.. however, if the treads stay attached to the tyre and this fault was a few years ago...then they are a good tyre...
