Recommend some All Terrain tyres?

As per title, want to put a set of AT's on some spare rims (16 inch) I have for the Grand Cherokee...for mud (and snow) work.

Any suggestions re brand etc?....Don't want to spend a fortune as they will be used relatively infrequently.

Thanks

Seems to offer quite a range there .. but doesent have any stock ! A lot of these off road tyres are remoulds, but you wont be doing crazy road speeds anyway due to the noise, and possible balance problems.

I've got BF Goodrich MT's on the Disco, although not AT's they're quiet on the road and do the job in the mud and snow without having an agressive tread pattern.
I've been looking at Insa Turbos for when they need replacing, will be going for the Dakars.

I would replace them with more BF's but I slashed a sidewall on one of them so can't justify the extra cost, may as well slash a cheap one rather than a BF.

I have been running a set of Lassa MTs on the Defender for four years. A friend recently put the "Competus" AT version on his LWB Trooper and finds them to be OK. They are a cheap Turkish tyre but I have found them to be very tough and my MTs have performed surprising well in the snow.

I think for your application, the "Competus" would be good.

There is some info here

Your mileage will be extremely low the remoulds or cheap tyres would be the better choice.

Hadn't seen Lassa before seems to be a joint venture with Bridgestone so quality should be ok.

I'm using Runway A/T's on mine all year round, but they are pretty damn good in snow, and OK in mud. Cheap, last forever, not particularly noisy on the road and their road manners are pretty good for what they are.
