Recommended Tyres for 4X4

make sure you also consider the noise level. I bought some Nexan tyres for the Mercedes 4wd and the noise on the motorway was horrible.

The favourite for a P38 seemed to be Scorpion Verde when I was looking but I’m guessing you don’t go plugging across fields on a regular basis even if some of the paddocks can be “interesting” :D
Just double checked and it’s Pirelli Scorpion Verde that are on it at the moment, but the wet weather performance doesn’t inspire confidence. Maybe I’m expecting too much from the car, and it’s not necessarily down to the tyres?

Havnt used them in ages but had good results with Goodyear Eagles in the past.

Just found this review for RS3 on a Touareg. Smaller size, so maybe the 20’s will be better again?

The others recommended were Nexen Rodian - but sounds like Geoff wasn’t impressed. Size and vehicle might make a difference though as this was for 255/55R18 and on a P38 with air suspension.
