I’ve had them installed for about 4 months now. Since they’re trail tires I’ve been avoiding mud, until today that is. Fuel economy immediately dropped. After raising the pressure to near max fuel mileage is actually slightly better than the Pirelli Scorpion Verdes. The ride, of course, is not as smooth. They seem to pick up whatever noise and vibration the road has. On blacktop it’s as quiet and smooth as the Pirelli were. As far as noise it’s indistinguishable, maybe because Range Rovers are pretty well insulated.
I haven’t had any issue on beaches, gravel, or grass, even without airing down. Today I went on some forest roads since it was too cold to hike, went through a muddy area that was pretty easy to navigate, and found myself on a road that I’d have to back down over half a mile, or go through the mud and ruts.
The treads did fill with mud. I felt them slip, remember this is my first time through mud so maybe that’s how it feels, the truck never bogged down and got through what I’d consider admirably.
They may not be the absolute best, but I’d recommend them for a daily driver that sees a lot of gravel and sand, and some occasion mud
