I have a Freelander I TD4 that is in need of some new tyres.
The old ones are Hankook Dynapro AT-A 215/80 R15s. While they've been fine on the road and dry ground, the moment the grass gets wet, or a field gets soft, or a track gets muddy, the treads slip or fill and things get either lively or embarrassing.
Fortunately, much of the time I can play it safe, park up and walk the rest of the way, but I'd really like to have the option not to.
I am also fortunate in that most of my shooting is only half-an-hour away from base, so on-road performance is not a priority.
This has led me to consider getting some mud tyres for my 15" rims. I've identified the following models as front runners:
- Hankook RT03 Dynapro MT 215/75 R15 100R
- BF Goodrich KM2 Mud Terrain 215/75/15 100Q
Research so far indicates that these are a suitable size, but I'd very much appreciate it if the knowledgeable gentlemen of the SD could advise me as to:
- whether these tyres are likely to give me better mobility in the conditions described above?
- whether there's a better alternative?
- where best to buy from?
Thanks in anticipation,
