United Kingdom 2014 Freelander 2 SD4 GS Auto Orkney Grey

Ive just bought my Fl2 this week, approved used from a LR dealer. Its on 17000 miles and came with brand new Goodyear Efficient Grips fitted all round. Spoke to the salesman about them saying surprised it had needed new tyres at only 17k. Amazingly he told me that all Approved Used LRs have to go out on new tyres and all of the same make right across their range!

Tyre life is something Im interested in. I have run GG AT2, then GGAT on my Disco 2, all running 50k plus miles.
My wife has a VW Tiguan which has GGGT fitted. First set lasted 40K.

I may well go for the BFG AT on the Freelander when needing replaced, never an option on the 18" D2 previously. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

I've just done 14500 on Nokian Nfera tyres
Fronts are even at 5.5mm and rears even at 6mm

Quite impressed to be honest for budget tyres fitted by the LR dealer

IIRC, the dealers sell the cars with a min of 4mm tread on them. Sadly mine was just over and they wouldn't put new tyres on Big Cry

Just changed a set of Good Year Wranger HP All Weathers at 40,000 miles - they had just got down to 3mm.

It all depends on your style of driving & where the car is driven, a owner who drives mostly on motorways is going to get near double the mileage compared to a car that spends most of its life on country roads.

42000 miles and counting on my General Grabber AT3s. They are currently at 5mm and 6mm remaining tread. I think they are a fantastic tyre for the money. Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

dont AT tyres start off with about 10mm tread depth and normal summer/winter tyres start with about 8mm ?

ISTR getting about 50,000 miles out of a set GG AT2 on my first FL1, and they still had a decent amount of tread left when i sold it

I wish my FL2 had all that tread! My Father was a bit of a spendthrift with tyres on his cars.When the canvas showed, and he got a puncture, he used to take the tyres off and fix the puncture, then stick six layers of wide canvas carpet edging canvas strips to the inside of the tyre with Copydex rubber glue, and hope for another six months of use.
