Land Rover Defender Tyre Review Highlights
Fantastic, I had these on a 90 td5. No issues with these once I had them on the vehicle, went everywhere (at the time lived in rural N/E Scotland) snow, rivers, muddy fields, forests and roads. They wore really well, were extremely robust and didn't make much noise. Fuel economy wasn't great, but I was driving a un-aerodynamic brick with a roof rack.
bought as new-take offs with new wheels for my 2004 Land Rover, and these are well behaved on the road, with good support for offroad sites. Not brilliant in the mud as a full on MT tyre, but these are 50/50 M&S rated tyres which suit my 20,000 miles a year very well.
I recommend them over the UHP (General Grabber TR) which I had before, as a better all round all season tyre. For sure, slightly noisier and slightly lower (about 1-2mpg) than the TR, but the TR is 70% road biased. There's always a trade off, and this is one I'm happy with. I average 29.5-33.7 mpg depending on traffic and terrain.

Driving Land Rover Defender. 26,000 mile Towing 2 ton trailer and 34,000 mile on M roads, A & b roads total of 60,000 miles,renewing in another 2k mile rear tyres would get about 5k more but will replace the 4.Will I be replacing with General Grabbers you bet, It's a no brainer!
Cannot understand some of the reviews for the Cross Contact AT. These tyres are an excellent all round performer. They are less than half worn at 24,000 miles so I am looking to get around 50k+ out of them. They perform wet or dry are capable off road and have an acceptable noise level on a defender which is not exactly quiet anyway. My usage is 70% county roads 25% "A" roads or motorways and 5% off road. For any tyre to have to handle all of the above summer and winter is a big ask and this tyre is very good.
these are great tyres just bought another set foe my landrover defender but gone bigger size good on and off road

Have these tyres on our Land Rover Defender. They are great, both for road use and offroad. I think this is one of the best compromisses between road and offroad ability on the market.
We have studded our tyres.
not sure on other posts claiming unbelievably low mileage before wearing out. Mine came with the defender as new and have done 50,000 miles so far, with loads of life left. I anticipate at least another 10,000. Road noise is good (for a defender) and off road grip has been absolutely fine during mild conditions (green laning etc). They feel utterly safe at motorway speeds and have been extremely resistant to damage by sharp objects etc both on the sidewalls and tread, which doesn't show evidence of missing chunks as some other tyres out there do.
