I just recently inquired about some replacement rubber for my Rangie and am really surprised how expensive "Michelin's" were.
How much mileage did you achieve with those part worn Conti's ? The Michelin representative I spoke to stated their Latitude Cross tyre pattern could get between 37000 to 50000 miles out of a set on the Range Rover priced @ 210 pounds stirling/tyre !
