Hi - New to this site having just got my RRS.

I will be replacing all tyres soon and in addition to the useful posts above I'd value your thoughts and experiences.

I need 275/40/R20s. Must be "all terrain". I will be driving from UK to Portugal a few times between now and this time next year when I'll be staying there for good.

So in summary: tyres needed for all types of road in all weathers and hard wearing. Not a lot of off-road driving but some track 'roads' over in Portugal. (More uneven surfaces than mud/snow.)

I'd really value your advice - if you can be precise as opposed to just brand names even better!

Thanks in anticipation...


I ave similar requirements to yourself with the addition of the need for winter tyres given our location. I have quite an extensive, unmade road to negotiate to gain access to my property, which gets rutted and extremely muddy during the winter despite being graded every year.

I have found the Pirelli Scorpion Verde to be an excellent all round tyre and should suit your requirements admirably.

Hello.
I have 2016 spec alloys and wheels. The tyres are 255 55 20. Pirelli scorpion Verde. So far, they are far comfier, better for off road and I no longer have a phobia of curbs. My alloys are still pristine. On 275 40 20's my alloys were always curbed by the missus.

I'm really grateful for all responses. I opted for the AT Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico's in the end - and they're great.
Substantial noise reduction and better ride than the Federal / Cougar budget mix which were on the car when I bought it. Very Happy
