4x4 tyres

As most of you guys have probably got 4x4´s, I was just wondering what type of tyre you were using as mine are getting near the replacment stage and will be looking to re-shod the old girl. Off-road has got more tread but does it last as long on tarmac and what is the handling like? Road or off road what do you use?

high tower

you have the kia sportage if i can remember right

go for a road type tyre not big off road stuff

stones and sand wet slipway are best delt with a very meduim off road tyre
i have bridgestone ht on my l200 last for ever and will cope with sand and stone beachs well

I also have BFG AT. They are great on muddy fields and beaches and not too much road noise like some other AT or Mud tyres

I'm pleased they're all round. However, they wander all over the place. The fukkrs never track straight. Seriously tiring. Yeh, I know.

Must be something wrong with your steering, my 110 steers fine i can take my hands of the wheel at any speed and it will run as staight as an arrow. Never had a problem with steering even on my previous 110. I Dont know what the MT would be like as they have a lot more aggressive treads but the AT's are fine, not very noisy either.

I've got Mud Terrains on mine and they're OK for road use... not great.. but OK...lasting about 35K a set. Fantastic in mud..surprisingly enough.. but lousy on wet grass and the like. Daniel's right. A less aggressive pattern is more suitable for towing/launching. 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...

Yup, but I thinks it's 'Micheldeva' tyres. they've been a good source of cheap rubber for years now. just off the A303
