    I want to buy a new set of mud tires for my 2016 Land Rover Discovery. Should I go for Nitto Tires? I have read good reviews about their Terra Grappler tires. Is anyone here familiar with it? Any other recommendations?

    Rather ouch! prices and still limited choice. I suspect they are grey imports, rather than offical. Given the limited choice and high prices.

    @surfsup84 I suspect another brand might be suitable in the UK. What size where you looking at?

    Do you guys in UK use Maxxis tyres at all?

    I have just fitted a set of maxxis bighorn mt764's in 31-10.5r15 on a range rover classic.....a great tyre on and off road....seriously am impressed with their road manners as well as just mud ability
    Just finished a 97mile round trip today with a large amount of offroad....rocks, fords, deep ruts, steep climbs, swamps....they seem to do everything well:)

    I have cooper discoverer stt pros 275/65/r16 on the rear of my P38. They are very capable off road and surprisingly very good on road too.
    My Insa turbo special track (same size) on the front are supreme boggers but not so good onroad. Everyone comments on the insas as opposed to the coopers. Although they don't like summer heat and can get bit skittish in heavy rain on a highway. That's one reason I have a bit of a mix ;)

    I have Yokohama Geolandar MTs, 235/85R16s. Good on road, haven't tried them off road yet. But they behaved reasonably well in winter too, they are old enough to be winter legal over here. I'll let you know as soon as I got my wheels dity!

    So, just went to a nice off-roading park near by. I guess I found the puddle of mud one of the previous owner dumped my car in.

    Regarding tires, they performed quite nicely. Just be aware I lack any comparison basis. But judging from the trails I drove and those the other guys took with serious off road machines, the problem definitely were not the tires but rather a lack of front rear diff locks. And even that only showed in the rain in one hill mount a G wagon with a locks engaged had a tough time. But then it might also have been the driver. So my verdict on Yokohama Geolandar M/Ts in mud: great tires!

    My verdict on them on road on the Autobahn, city, roads in summer and winter: great tires as well! Only potential problem in Germany is they need to have a certain age to be road legal in winter. Not sure if that matters. Otherwise I would recommend them anytime!
