Why? I swop mine sometimes on a weekly basis, depending on what I am doing - some weeks its 4 days back to back shooting with AT off road tyres needed - other weeks it could be a 700 mile round trip on a motorway. Honestly, it takes less than 10 minutes to swop all 4 if organised with a good trolly Jack and a Milwaukee High Torque M18 rattle gun. My spare wheels are kept on a pallet with wheels and are dead easy to move around and store. 2021 L405 Vogue SE 4.4 V8 DIESEL ~ #17

Anyone got any pics of the GG AT3's on their L405's ? The wheels fill the arches on the L405's alot more than the 332's so intrigued to see.

Taken the plunge


I've had my Fullfat for six months now, came with 20" wheels, unevenly worn, barely legal old Conti Cross Contact UHPs up front and reasonable condition but nasty cheap Accelera Iota ST-68s on the back all stock 255/50 R20. Alway knew I wanted a set of new shoes before the weather changes, and have been following this thread for a while, really useful comments all, thanks!

The roads around me are all awful at the best of times and particularly terrible due to hundreds of HS2 trucks causing even more damage, I blew out the sidewall on a newish tyre and buckled my alloy on an Evoke in a huge pothole earlier this year!

As I don't do much long distance mileage decided to go for more chunky replacements, might help save the wheels from the potholes.

Ended up shortlisting the Cooper Discoverer AT3 Sport 2 or the General Grabber AT3. Came down to price (General £200 ish more for the set of 4) and recommendations from my excellent local tyre shop guys, and went for the General Grabber AT3s in 255/55 R20. I'm not worried about the slightly lower speed rating, and the small extra diameter seems to suit the car. £752 all in.

Going to run them on 37 PSI front and rear and see how that goes for now.

Tyres from Vale Tyres in Waddesdon, on alloys newly refurbished by Alloy Stars, Aylesbury.

No noticeable change in road noise so far, but will update after a few more journeys. I think they look great, what do you all think?

That's good to know Dr Rob, thanks!

The front tie rods were good and seized, took a fair bit of effort and heat from Vale Tyres to free them so they could do the alignment, which was well out, must not have been done for a long time!

I think the next big job is going to be front discs, pads and possibly clean up and paint the calipers... red or black.... thinking black at the moment Confused Confused Current - 2010 Range Rover 4.4TDV8 Vogue SE Auto

I'm a 99.99% road user so would never compromise road safety with all terrain tyres Confused
Pirellis for me and nearing 18k this year in mileage and they probably work out cheaper than AT's over the long term in wear rates Thumbs Up

I fitted GG AT3 in 255/60R19 to get a little more sidewall height and a higher load for rating for rocks than the 255/55R20 version. They provide good traction through mud although they can tram-line in other vehicle's ruts, possibly due to their square rather than rounded edges. Their sealed road behaviour can't be faulted with my rural driving.

I'm with JayGee on this one. I'd love a beefier looking tyre, but can't justify it for my use; even though its often down country lanes with some rutted tracks, I value the sealed surface grip, especially in the wet. I was a convert to Michellin Cross Climates on my old car, brilliant tyres in all weather and winter rated as in snowflake, many sipes and long-lived. Can't seem to find them readily in my size though for a L322. Other than that, I'll stick with the Pirelli Scorpion Zeros. I do have some el-cheapo Triangle SUV tyres on the back thanks to the trader I bought the car from, but I doubt I'd pay for them myself, although they seem fine. Encourage alternative fuels, use all the petrol!

As above photos, I have a set of 255 55 20 AT3’s and they are quiet for such an aggressive tread pattern. They behave well on road, but I notice the difference when I switch back to the set of the same size Pirelli All Seasons, which unsurprisingly are superior on road.

The GG’s do look good in my opinion. I’m not a fan of large 4X4’s on vast rims with rubber band tyres though.

These have a LI of 113 which is the same as my previous 275/55R20 Pirelli AT+ but the ride is harsher which I suspect is due to a stiffer tread, as being V rated I assume that the sidewalls aren't particuarly heavy duty. I recently dropped the cold pressures to 26 front and 29 rear from the placard pressures as a compromise in the current boggy conditions which has fixed the harshness. I'll shortly increase pressures to 30/33 for expected better longevity but hopefully not back to the harsher ride on the patched roads around here.

I'm sold on the size - they feel normal rather than oversize.

Looking good, Graeme. I take it that's a 4.4 TdV8 with the big Brembos?? Regards,
