This follows on for my search for AT tyres to fit the 17 inch rims on my X Trail.
Anyhow I know some others were interested and I've made a useful discovery on the UK X Trail forum - Yokohama make an AT tyre to fit the X Trail 17 inch rims in 215 60 R17 so exactly the same size as the factory fit tyre. The tyres are Yokohama Geolander ATS G012, I think all the letters and numbers matter as there are lots of Geolanders and not all are AT tyres.
The tyres don't look quite as aggressive as the AT2s for example but anything is better than nothing and they seem to get good reviews.
The catch is that I can't, as yet, find anywhere in the UK that stock them in the X Trail size though people like Camskill have them in different sizes so you can get a look at them eg:
So, if anyone knows of somewhere in the UK that has stock of these or has any ideas as to how to get a supply of them then let us know. The first supplier to have them off the shelf stands to make a killing from X Trail owners who don't want to buy 16 inch rims.
