Looking for some decent all terrain tyres to fit an LDV Convoy

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations for all terrain tyres please?  Little bit of rain and my yard turns into a mud pit

I just put a set of these AT tyres onto my Sprinter 4x4:

They look and feel like a BF Goodrich clone, and at half the price I thought it was worth a punt. First impressions are very good, and studies have shown that they make your van at least 37% more manly.

These don't like the wet roads

Nor do BF Goodrichs. I liked them for off road work and they were quiet and very hard wearing. They were however pretty poor in snow and on wet roads. It was comical in the Navara how little throttle was required to get the back end out on a damp roundabout. 

 

I'm going to be towing a tri axle trailer (lots of brakes) most of the time and I drive extremely slowly. I bought them principally for getting me across fields. Are there any all terrains that don't give away a lot of performance on road in exchange for performance off it?

I found bfg all terrains to be among the best for mixed driving.

Cooper sst or stt ( forget which) have been excellent off road and pretty good on road, as have bfg ko's.

Insas are like driving on ice!
