Cheers all . Having a word with my brother last night he has maxxis bighorns on his 110 . He said when was new wasnt too bad just now since worn a bit noisey . Thinking going with mud tyres as I don't go far normally ,But I'm finding it hard to find many . Most places stock all terrains or road tyres .

i have a vague memory that my old D2 came with 245/75/16 mud terrains on it, which work out approx 1" taller than your current tyres

i would suggest looking for an alternative size for mud terrains than the 255/65/16

I can not find mud tyres in 255 65 16 or 255 70 16 tried our 3 tyre supplier at work also . Thing is if you go too narrow it will stretch the tyres on the beads .

You should be able to find BFG MT or AT in 255/70R16. I used to run ATs in that size on my Discovery 2 and they were perfect. MTs were definitely available in the same size, so I imagine they still are.

Yes I can find them but defently  not cheap at all! 

In the handbook I found a chart saying on standard suspension the max with no lift is 255 70 r16 . 

I've found plenty at 245 70 r16 . Guessing that would be ok ?

I bought some Kumho MT51's from them for my Range Rover a couple of years ago. Have bought other tyres from them in the past too. Generally pretty good prices.

I went for a 255/70R16. Not the most aggressive mud terrain, but pretty good on the road and enough for the off roading I intend to use them for.

245 vs 255 is not a difference i would worry about personally,

BFGs were never cheap and there were few other options in that size IIRC.

245/70R16 or 245/75R16 are both fine. The 245/75 may be the better option, a bit more clearance, and it'll still just fit on a standard rear door spare wheel carrier.

Good tyres are never cheap, cheap tyres are rarely good... you've got to factor the cost of BFG's over the fact they easily last 50k or more.

I'd say budget £95-110 a corner for a reasonable tyre. I quite like some of the BFG offerings, but if I'm being honest, I don't think they are worth the asking price.
