325X16 LT Kelly
Offroad...great
On road...as good as most LT's
Not so good...not terribly aggressive off the tar, not as comfortableas others (LT tyres :) but not noisy.
Overall great value for money if you want long lasting LT tyres.
If I can get another set I'll be happy...which tyre chain has em ? :))

The Kelly AWR are fairly popular in SA for desert travel - most commonly 265/75R16 and 235/85R16. Good high mileage tyre.

Mate, i've used Kelly's on the troopy every time I could get them; both AWR and MSR type tread pattern. The LT design AWR is long lasting and good on dirt and climbing rough dirt tracks like the Bullita SR. Nice thick side wall with good resistance to staking. A lot quieter than the Toyo equivalent - which I won't be buying again.
