If you want an LT tyre there's not much around in that size.
The Bridgestone D697 are available as LT in that size. Also you can get a BFG AT. I'd be interested to learn of any others.
Perhaps the BFG is a bit more aggressive so could suit your use better than the Bridgestone but wouldn't be too much in it.

Not sure. The BFG site says $424 RRP but you should do a fair bit better than that.

Hi Uppy

I am now running Procomp All Terrains on both of my vehicles. The price is within your range and I am having a very good run out of them in similar conditions for your intended use. They are also very quiet on the road.
Regards John

If you are in the Sydney area Tempe tyres seem to be the cheapest, I got prices from them Jax and Bob Jane , Tempe were $100 per tyre cheaper. I usually deal with Jax they matched the price , saying that Tempe were importing "grey" imports which I find difficult to believe as BFG would not let them do that as it would ruin their reputation, After making numerous enquiries and having previously had BFG A/Ts I have stuck with them and I think they as good as anything else on the market. Every one has their own opinion on tyres and as a mate once said opinions are like backsides everyone has one.

Yup I am using them.
They are the best all-round tyre that I have I have used. Reasonably quiet on the road, good on wet roads and good in the bush and more than acceptable in the sand. Very good at touring speeds on dirt roads.
Previous where Procomp MT Extremes. The wrangles are quieter on the road and grip way better on wet roads, much better on sand and about the same in the dirt/mud.
I would classify them as an aggressive all-terrain rather than a full blown mud tyres.
