just an update, after putting around 4000 miles on my tyres, I can say they handeled excellent on highways dry and wet conditions, and I was satisfied in the snow performance. 255/55/18.with 30 psi front and 38 psi rear. and I like the way they look too!
You will love them. I have @40k miles on mine, and with the exception of having to replace one due to the better half driving on it when flat (Nail), they have proved themselves very competent indeed. Ice, snow, dry, wet, mud, they perform.
I run mine at 28/38 BTW.
I agree with you Martin, I wanted to spread the word that they really fit this truck multi-purpose use for all kinds of terrain.since I had them fitted all the highway wandering disappeared, but the scorpions were at the end of its life, but dude, what a difference! good luck with yours buddy.
Ater researching this forum I have deceided on these tires also. The tire place just called me this morning to say they are in so will be having them fitted very shortly. Seeing this post and others are happy with them is being taken as a sign that I made right choice, so thank you for posting about them.
Just had a few seals repalced on my new rover and getting a new climate control sent to me so I can swop out the old one (the fix on this website didn't work 100% for me but the screen did improve but not all the way).
Once I get these tires on I will be happy.
If my feeble memory serves me correctly I have about 30K miles on my Grapplers and love em. Smooth, quiet, great traction and wearing great. My only complaint is in wet clay the tread clogs a bit fast for my taste. As that is rarely an issue off road I would easily purchase them again. :thumb:
I thought the local 4wd shop gave me a break when I got the set of four for $600 out the door, but when the missus ran one flat and we got just one, it was $150 out the door for that too.
I guess they look after me after all huh?
..and I thought I got a deal!!! :shock: ...I paid $ 710 out the door.But you know what I am happy with them, it will take me a short time to forget the extra $110 i paid :crybaby2:
in my opinion it is worth more than what I paid comparing to the expensive pirelli scorpion ATR s :thumb:
I paid $720 today and am still happy with them and don't feel totally robbed, you got a **** good deal at 600. The whole feel is better now , haven't been in snow etc. yet (it had the stock Michilin's on when i bought it 4 weeks ago).
Also is it true that you need to have the boot open (or any door) to diable the air suspension system when lifting the car totally off the ground (ie. all 4 wheels with the lifts they use) at the garage?
Have had advice both ways and the tire place has done rovers before and hasn't come across this before me asking ( I asked them to open the boot (or tailgate for american's) ) before lifting to change the tires.
Just thought I woud ask. Thank you in advanvce.
