Land Rover Discovery 1 1996 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Toyo Open Country AT plus given 73% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 30 average miles
Bought for mostly country roads with a bit of field and track work - a decent mixture all terrain tyre with reasonable on road comfort and feedback, but can still make good progress in a sloppy field. Main cons are average at best wet / snow braking, but still vastly better than any all season tyre would be in the snow. They have worn out a little faster than I'd like, but given the price range I'd certainly buy again.

Driving on mostly country roads for 12000 spirited miles
I have a Land Rover Discovery 1 which I use for towing glider and car trailers and for helping as a retrieve vehicle on British rallies including driving well off-road.
The dry grip is better than expected and in the wet these tyres clear deep water with ease.
The wear rate is better than normal with such a chunky tread pattern and the steering feel is excellent as is the handling. Road-holding is good for an all-terrain tyre.
I shall definitely buy these again when the current set is worn out.

Writing about the Cooper Discoverer ST MAXX given 90% (245-75-16-)
Driving on mostly town for 3000 easy going miles
Had these fitted new to my old Discovery 300Tdi as an upgrade, and they were a great choice.

As quiet as a road bias tyre despite the chunky looks, were surprisingly grippy on tarmac in the wet or dry, (never aqua planed for example and were always grippy and progressive) and obviously didn't have any issues in grassy fields. I never had the opportunity to take them offroad seriously, but I suspect they'd be a safe choice given the tread pattern. I had them on for about 3000 miles before I sold the truck, and the tyres had barely started to wear at that point. I had no issues with punctures or tears and in fact I'm looking for the same again for my current Discovery V8.

Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 average miles
I have a set fitted to my Land-Rover Discovery. The vehicle is used for marshalling on rallies, often in muddy forests, and for towing both glider trailers and a car trailer. With the glider trailers it is sometimes necessary to retrieve gliders which have landed in fields.

Both on and off-road these tyres are excellent. They have good road-holding and excellent handling characteristics and are very predictable.

The wear rate is good and they provide excellent driver confidence.

Driving on a combination of roads for 22000 average miles
We have had Michelin, Good Year and Pirelli nothing matches these! No matter where we go what we pull the never seem to wear, this is our second set of Avon's and if were a bit late they will take corners surprisingly hard surprising us and others!!. Dry or wet they never let go! The side walls hold up well considering the disco ways 2.7 ton. It has never been stuck although we haven't really taken her off road properly the tyres will cope with wet grass, messy mud ruts and snow! which is all we need really. They are very quiet long journeys are no problem 80-90 mph. Overall excellent think we have found a tyre for life

Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 spirited miles
Probably the best tyres I've ever bought, had the last set for 4 years on 3 cars over all types of terrain and motorway. Taking into account the fact that the tyre is 70/30 on to off road rating a very good all round tyre. Extremely tough. I'm on my second set.

Very good tough tyre excellent in the wet or dry make sure you get the STR's not the STR A there is a distinct difference in tread pattern and so grip in snow

I just bought a set of 4 here in Muscat, Oman for my old Landrover Discovery this morning. They cost OR60 each including balancing and full wheel alignment check. I was replacing a set of 2 year old Pirelli Scorpions, that despite worthless their 5 year warranty, were completely shagged(no longer round and lots of bumps as the steel had gone inside). I will let you know how they go !!
