What does anyone recommend for road tyres

Post by morseman2003 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 3:26 pm

My GG AT tyres are coming to the end of their useful life so looking at what I put on next.

I have a D2 as well which is my main off road vehicle so the D3 is 90-95% on the road so considering road tyres as the next option.

I tow a twin axle caravan and I am on 18” rims.

Any thoughts appreciated.

TIA

Not sure if they are still available but Pirelli ATR’s would be my first choice for a good all rounder.

And a second set of rims to put them on.

Just not sure if LR's endorsement is a good thing. :shock: :shock:

But for road tyres ive done 19k on 19" Wranglers and happy as a happy thing with them from the perspective of handling and ride. I put them on at 6mm and presently on 4mm front & 4.5mm rear so another 13k left if I take them to 3mm, so good longevity. :thumbright:


If only I could think of something useful to type here!! :(

Absolute novice at this, but moved here from a Honda CR-V

Had Goodyear Wrangler AT adventure’s on that,

https://www.goodyear.eu/en_gb/consumer/ ... ATADV.html

so after leaving the disco at a Luton meet’n’greet, and being welcomed home with a nail on both front and rear drivers side, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Goodyear had them in a disco 3 size a well!

Great tyre

What size rims do you have Andy? The AT seem to be only available in 19's?

I hope you can get them a lot cheaper than list :shock:

Mine are 255/55 r19 111h, and I managed to get them for £350 fitted and balanced for the pair.

Was a little surprised as for the CR-v I got them at £78 each fitted and balanced, and that was from the same place; admittedly 205/70r15

According to the Goodyear website you can get 255/55 r18, but I don’t think that’s the right size as according to my manual it should be a 255/60r18

Edited to change 5 to 6

Standard 18 tyres are 255/60-R18 and 235/70-R17 for 17" rims as well as the ones you say for 19"

The weight is the critical thing - 111 for a disco is the minimum load rating - your CRV would have been a lot less than that so cost less to make.

£350 for a pair seems about the normal I think.
