General Grabber AT3’s on L405

As per the title - have any L405 owners any experience of running 21’ AT3’s on their L405?
I can find plenty of good reports for them on the L322’s but not much in the way of feedback for the L405. My new purchase is currently running a set of winters that I want to replace with something that will offer relatively good road handling but also allow for some occasional off reading if needs be.
My ‘go to’ tyres would usually be something from Pirelli but just fancy the slightly more aggressive look of the AT3 in this instance.
Surely somebody on here must use their L405 on and off road...

I use 20" AT3's on my L405 for the shooting season and have found them very good. Before that I was on Pirellis and nothing causes more amusement than an FFRR stuck in a field!
They are fine on the road with no more noise than the Pirellis so would definitely recommend them.

Be aware that they’re nothing like as good on the road, noticeably worse in the wet.

Philip - I am guessing you have had a bad experience with the AT3's? Out of interest was this with 20" or 21"?

Is 20" the smallest width the L405 can run?

Not a bad experience, there’s just a trade-off for the off-road ability. Style 5001 are the official 19”s for an L405.

That does not align with my experience

If they were as good on the road as the standard tyres, but much better off it, wouldn’t they come with them as standard?

On a 322 not a 405 I’ve never noticed any wet weather issues in 30K miles with Grabber AT3s

I’ve got 255/55/20 Grabber AT3s on mine and no problems at all in the wet.

Great test and very informative. It’s a pity they didn’t include a product from Pirelli. Never the less it would seem the Goodyear makes for a great all-rounder.

General Grabber ATs have been on all my previous 4x4s, without a hint of a problem, and that includes towing the tin tent.
Just in the process of swapping a set off my 322 , that had done in excess of 30 thousand miles, AT3s are ready to go on after the wheels are powder coated.
Brilliant tyres.

Wow, the General Grabber took 19.5 meters to stop in the wet braking test over the reference summer tyre. That is abysmal and the difference between walking away from an accident or being carted away.
