paid £100 each in the end. Im going to put a colway AT as the spare as its not worth forking out another 100 for a tyre thats just going to sit on the back!
 
Anyone else got some nice tyres they want to show off??

Got BF Goodrich Macadam, size 215/65x16. They are much quiter and softer than the stock GoodYear HP's I had, a real relief. Done 56.000 kms with the GoodYear's and LR specialist told me I'm supposed to do at least half of it more with these ones. (At least 80.000 kms he says). Paid 125 Euro (82 GBP) per piece, compared to the 140 Euro (92 GBP) to 160 Euro (105 GBP) of the other brands this is a bargain. So far worth every penny of it.

They are 215/70/16 look much better than the 215/65/16 and raise the freelander up a bit as well!

Please forgive my lack of knowledge - I have 215/65/16Rs currently. Will I need to change the rims to fit the 70's?

We will not be "off roading" as such but will be spending quite a bit of time in muddy fields and some dodgy track in Derbyshire, Exemoor and the Lake district - Camping and walking - this year. I am assuming that ATs will be marginally better?

No you dont need to change the rims the 70 profile just means the tyres are a bit taller. The AT's will not be marginally better they will be a lot better, the difference from road tyres is very noticable!
 
Shock horror, I have a Subaru Forester with 205/70/15 Bridgestone Dueller 684's. So far, on muddy tracks, it hasn't put a foot wrong but I want to have a slightly more aggressive tyre on. The manual says stick to the correct size as altering could effect the abs, airbag sensors and allsorts. Is this the same for the Freelander?

Thanks for that - will get the wife to chat up the guy at the tyre shop to see if she can get me a deal - anyway it is her car!

Noob question- any idea what tyres will fit our Freelander? I think they're 17 inch (photo in sig). Would like something better in mud but not comprimising on road driving. Some that fill the arches a bit more or make it a bit higher will be good. Don't want to spend much! Cheers, Andy.
 
Alot of MT's are just as good on the road, depends on how often you venture offroad & to what extremes. AT's will probably do ya. I have BFG/AT's, pricey but good tyres.

mate your wheels look like the 16 inch wheels and as such the best two all terrians i can recomend are the BFG Goodrich and the General Grabber AT2, prob in that order, although the AT2s are alot cheaper! :)
 
I have a Set of Yokohama's GO11's (AKA Geolander ATs) on mine ...235/60R16's (Same rolling radius as the stock 215/65R16's that came on it)

No Pics as such, but
http://www.interkol.ru/ik_tyres_cat_info_796 is what they look like.

Being a bit softer compound than the BFG AT's, I find they grip like stink on-road, but still have the BFG AT's off-road grip.:D

Downside, they wear-out quickly

:eek: They shot up in price too!...6 months ago I paid £125 for a pair, last week I had to pay £188!!
