    Evening guys and girls

    The other half has a Discovery 1 and when we bought it from a family member it had bf goodrich all terrains on there, they have been fantastic but a couple have got rather low on tread and keep letting the wind out through some light cracking.
    Our or my question is whether to replace said knackers with more bfg or to go for something else like the insa turbo rangers, price is the key factor but also longetivity (the bfg's on there have done circa 60k)
    The disco is used primeraly as road vehicle for her to go back and forth to work in, and gets light green lane use (whewn the transfer box decided to play ball)
    We would like to do a bit more laning in the next few months but have no plans to modify the vehicl any further than its current state.

    Opinions of good all terrains welcomed,

    cheers

    i did a search it brought up 10 tonnes of bull****, i wanted a quick answer. also you may want to rethink your tyre supplier paddocks are offering bfg at's at 97 quid a corner currently and camskill even cheaper when paddocks arent offering specials.
    there was me thinking that i may get a useful reply, sort of proves why i hardly come here anymore.

    The problem is that tyres are a personal choice.
    1 tyre will be loved by some and slated by others.
    If you are happy with what is fitted then fit them again.

    Very true, all tyres have good and bad points, they're all too feckin expensive really and in some cases you do get what you pay for.
    I've settled on the General Grabber AT and have found it to be a particularly versatile tyre that does everything well on or off the road.
