Land Rover Range Rover TD6 Tyre Review Highlights
I had Goodyear Wranglers as original equipment on my 2004 Range Rover 3.0 diesel. They did 50,000 miles and were still legal when I replaced them with another set of Wranglers in autumn 2009. I saw that they were the tyres used non Range Rovers when I did a Land Rover Adventure off-road course and they coped amazingly well with deep, soft mud, climbing out of the lake etc. I am sorry that they hqave been replaced as OEM on current Range Rovers as I had great confidence in them and the slow rate wear was very good. In 60,000 miles I never had a puncture either!
Writing about the Maxxis Bravo AT771
Driving on a combination of roads
for 15000 average
Previously, I've bought sets of both the Goodyear Wrangler HP (Land Rover's original fitment) and Michelin Latitude Cross tyres. I decided however, that this time around I'd try a set of Maxxis AT771's as the Michelin's proved to work well on the road, but far less well off road, particularly on wet grass.
I generally expect All Terrain tyres to be a bit of a compromise, that said, the Maxxis 771's have really impressed me. The grip off-road is far better that I've experienced before, sure-footed progress up wet bank sides is no problem, likewise the grip on descent provides every confidence that you're not going to lose traction.
On the road, the 771's drive comfortably, they're smooth and surprisingly quiet, with little discernible difference in road / cabin noise to previous tyres despite the higher rating. The Maxxis 771's grip well in the dry and (if driven responsibly!) equally well in the wet, coping easily with moderate snow . After 11 months of use the wear on these tyres is minimal despite the car covering a good many road miles and with luck, they should last at least as well, if not somewhat better, than the Michelin Cross.
Overall, I highly recommend these tyres if you intend using your car both on and off road. I'd happily buy them again.
Writing about the Accelera Iota
Driving on mostly motorways
for 10 average
My wife needed 4 tyres for the RR. We ere thinking if selling it, so just wanted to put something cheap on it to get it sold. Naas tyre dealer suggested these Iota as a cheap but ok tyre for me. We discussed the pros and cons as I didn't want to loose the jeep in a hedge before the new car. To my surprise and after 6 months, these tyres are good. Not too noisy as the rubber is more road going than chunky 4x4. Co oared to the original tyres, these seem very food value and good quality. I would buy again.
