I have a reasonable set of AT tyres on my Landrover that are OK for onroad use. I have a second set of 17" rims that I want to put on a set of muddies on for when I head offroad. As such they will not get a lot of use so I do not need a top of the range tyres. I need a rolling diameter of approx 770mm and am currently looking at 245/70R17 or 255/65R17 Maxxis Bighorns. Locally these cost a tad over $300 fitted but I would like to go cheaper if I can.

Any suggestions of a cheaper muddie in either the above sizes. As I said these will not get used a lot so wear and onroad abilities are not a high priority as my 18" ATs will go back on when back home.

Thanks

Garry

Summit/Kanati Mud hogs is good value for money 10 ply tread and 3 ply sidewall. I have a second set of wheels for my Wildtrak with them on. Did about 20 000k with them. Simpson crossing. Cape York and OTT . Numerous bush trips and bush bashing in outback farms and long distance dirt road driving. Not a single puncture or stake. Not to bad in wet on road and not the noisiest of muddies. I had BFG KM2 muddies and the mudhogs were better in all aspects as well as price. Good looking and they handle lower pressures well for sand driving unlike some big names that pop their sidewalls when at low pressures.
Now for the fight on this thread....

Thanks for the information - price and reviews seen reasonable but they do not seem to have any listings in either of the sizes I am after.

Cheers
