    Hi JP,

    I am in need of new tires for my 64 IIA 88 and I confess it's more about getting the right look than it is about tire performance for me these days. I have always run a 215/85-16 but am considering a 235/85-16 because there are more choices.

    Anyway, I saw your resto-mod on the long-running thread and wondered what tire you have on it? It really looks the part.

    Thanks,

    Myron

    Hey Myron,

    They are Joyroad MT200's in 235/85R16. I'm running them on Wolf rims. My spare was just a little big for the bonnet, which is why I'm not running it up there. The M416 trailer has been converted to Rover rims and is running military NDT 7.00-16 tires, which is what the spare up front is, and these work just fine on the Rover as a spare.

    The Joyroad's are a cheap chinese tire I got when I got to the "I need a rolling chassis" stage of the rebuild. But they actually aren't that bad. They ride ok, are not super loud (may change with wear), and are actually decent in the rain. But I only have about 1500 miles on them.

    I took a look and it looks like they may be discontinued, or are just difficult to find now. I also really like the look of these Atlander Roverclaw's. And the Firestone Destination M/T2's are rated pretty well if you want a mud tire only. I do think an A/T tire would be a little better choice for me, since I'm on the interstate a fair amount.

    How can you go wrong with a "Rover"claw?

    Exactly! The name alone might make it worth a set.

    Funny you mention Firestone, as I saw a set today and came back and googled it. What a bizarre tread pattern. I couldn't quite decide if it was truly a better mousetrap or just a gimmick.

    Goodyear makes the Wrangler All Terrain "Adventure" in my preferred 215/85 size. It's a lighter duty tire, and of course the name is all wrong, but I might give those a whirl. Interestingly, I have a new Defender on order and that's the tire they build it with.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Myron

    The tires I'm dying to get a hold of are actually Continental HSO Sand tires, but they aren't available stateside.

    The later Range Rovers and early Discovery's had a similar tire if memory serves. I believe it was a Michelin XS or XMS or something like that...

    Maybe it was the Camel Trophy Defenders that used the Michelin XCL I'm remembering.
