Verde or AT3?

Mrs JW911 needs all four tyres (17”). 99% on road driving.

I run the Rangie on AT3s, which suit it well but I’m drawn to Verdes for the FL2. Price is near enough the same for both.

Any thoughts please?

There’s so many threads on tyres, not sure there’s ever been a conclusive answer, everyone has their own preference.
Tried the search option?

Copy of previous post - I have had the Pirelli Scorpion Zero tyres 235/55 R19 105V (Volvo, Extra Load, All Season) on for over a year and have been very pleased with them.

I’ve had AT3’s on for around 10k miles and was happy enough until snow landed. They’re ok but no where near as good on snow or frosty conditions as Cross Climates. On a positive note they are good off road and mucking about if you don’t want full all terrain.
Next time it’ll be a set of winters plus a set of summers.

Scotland 2010 Freelander 2 TD4 HSE Auto Stornoway Grey

I fitted a set of Pirelli Verde, LR spec, in August 2021,
Two weeks ago had a puncture and tyre written n off due to small cut in Sidewall about one inch long.
Tyre people suspected pothole edge.
Fitted new Pirelli to match. Had garage measure wear on old tyre against new tyre.
After 6600 miles the wear was one mm.
So apart from cost of tyre pleased with the little wear so far. Jim A

I replaced my AT3s with Continental Cross Contact ATR's, only had them on 3000 miles so far. Excellent in the 6" of snow we had here today. I believe Continental actually own General Grabber now. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

If you're only going to drive on (urban) well maintained roads then the Verde may well suffice; however, in my experience they're not up to being used on country roads with large gravel & potholes & have a tendency to get punctures pretty regularly!

No experience of the AT3s but based on having them fitted to the previous FL1s & now to the current FL I can thoroughly recommend Goodyear Wrangler All Weather for all types of roadwork.

Hope this helps.
