I've just got a set of them for the Jeep, but I have yet to test them in anger. They're definitely not an AT, but do seem to be less bad on the road than the Goodyear MT/Rs that I took off.

Thanks for all the replies, really helpful, as ever.....

Now, I know it's not what i asked for in the OP, but i am leaning towards a more off road bias (mud) tyre, having seen the suggestions....they will, after all, be a spare set for specific mud use (plus I like the look of the big nobbly ones )

The tyres we are currently running work pretty well with soft sand (albeit run a little deflated then pumped up again before hitting the tarmac), so MT's would be good for the spare Rims....v limited road mileage.

Short list is:

Kumho KL71
lassa MT's (found a linky to Lassa MT as per Willks post)
Insa turbo (Dakars) as per Chewy and Kernows posts

As a good West Walian, price will play a significant role in the decision from herein

For an AT I would have the General Grabber AT2 every time though the BFG AT is also a favourite.

For an MT I like the old pattern BFG MT KM2 but these are no longer available, not tried the new MT2 yet but its effin expensive!

Hankook RT03 are also worth a look and we've just started importing a new one called the GT Adventuro MT which looks to be pretty good as well, thinking about getting a set for myself for the 110. KL71s are a good tyre and we sell loads of them at work (or rather we would if they hadn't been on back order in the main size for about six months) but they do wear fairly quickly.

Don't underestimate the horribleness of some of the remoulds on the road, I had a set of Simex-copies (Insa Turbo special track) on the 110 but I sold them because they were awful things, sounded like a Stuka and wandered all over the road. I expected them to be bad but not that bad.

For a really hairy @rsed MT the Maxxis Mudzilla is awesome off road, also got a set of those

I think I am collecting too many tyres as I will shortly have four sets for the 110 which is probably silly

I had a set of them too, bloody horrible.
Have used other remoulds that have been fine though.

I used to run Bridgestone ATs (not the usual HTs) on my Shogun with 16í wheels and they were a great compromise of low road noise with good grip in snow, mud, and on wet grass and slipways.

The Discovery 3 I have now has 19í wheels which also need extra load tyres because the D3 is a lardy bugger. I was disappointed I couldnít get Bridgestone ATs in the correct size.

Iíve put a set of General Tire ATs on it now, which were only released a couple of months back.
So far they have proved very good in all the situations above, but I had to take a deep breath when it was time to pay for them.

What about if you had a spare set of rims just for snow? Can anyone recommend a tyre thats no compromise on grip, ie don't care about noise, road handling, just for doing 20-30 mph on snow covered tarmac?

I did a similar thing a couple of years ago, my whole arm went black!
Condor ferries from Portsmouth or Huelin Renouf shipping from Southampton, but use a different courier to deliver to them, eg Codders would be your best bet I think
