Hello,

which AT tires do you recommend, which match: all-season, 80% tarmac 20% light offroad, recent durability. The BFgoodrich KO2 look great but I assume for my planned usage too much offroad. I also like tires with a more agressive look. The Idea is to order the Rough Package, but replacing the KO2 tires, with tires, which suits better to my use. Thank you!

I am looking at something similar.
Currently I am going to go with the Falken Wildpeak AT3W - Light Truck construction.

Why not just go with the factory default Bridgestone AT - sounds like the right tyre for your aspirations.

[QUOTE username=Davman userid=8961117 postid=1333003976]I think the look of the Bridgestone AT doesn't look agressive enough.

Ah OK, Yokohama Geolandar or Pirelli Scorpion AT still have that aggressive looking sidewall but are much better on road than the traditional AT's like BFG or Cooper.

Thank you all  - indeed I looked towards the Falken Wildpark AT3W, but only based in the specs and the look.

Yes if you get the Rough Pack , you are only paying another $100 Australian for the BFG's (which isn't much money).  That at least gives you the ability to sell the BFG's if you like - as someone will be after them.

Not sure it's the same compound around the world but In Australia it's an excellent tyre.

I have Falken Wildpeak ATW3,s on a ‘97 NAS Defender. Brilliant tyre and better than the BFG KO2;s on my other Defenders. 
I am exporting my D130 from the UK next month and the Falken Wildpeak ATW3 in the UK is a completely different looking tyre. Nowhere near as “chunky” but no doubt great.
