    hi I've just bought 4 tyres 750 x 16 and wheels for my series swb a matched pair of ok tyres and one mich xpc and one Goodyear wrangler. I'd like to have a matched pair. ( ooh er )

    Which tyre should I buy to make a pair up?

    Which ever you can get cheapest. Not particulary off road biased so both should be fine for on road stuff? Might stuggle in the mud.

    Yep, round is a good place to start, black rubber is another good idea. :D

    I'd save for a set of four of whichever, new and matching ... ;)

    Which I realise doesn't help you right now, but even on a budget I don't take chances with tyres ...

    Completely agree, I only put top of the range tyres on my wife's car and even on my van I bin any tyre over 5 years old.... But I'm doing no more than 1000miles a year in the landy, 60miles an hour tops(!?) so will live with different tyres on front and rear, but know I should match the axle, just don't know which of the above is the best to go with!
    Cheers
