Range Rover Classic & Discovery 1

For the Range Rover Classic and Discovery I, a 245/75-16 is a nice fit with a two or three inch lift. 

For all-around use and winter driving, we especially like the BF Goodrich All Terrain KO.

For mud, we've been very impressed with the Firestone Destination MT.

For stock replacements, the Michelin Latitude is an excellent choice. Although tame in appearance, they handle all conditions very well.

Discovery II

For the Discovery II, the Michelin Synchrone is an excellent choice. Although tame in appearance, they handle all conditions very well.

For those looking for something more aggressive,  A two inch lift will allow a 265/75-16 to fit without a problem. For mostly road-bound vehicles or for use in snow, we prefer the BF Goodrich All Terrain KO.

Defender

Defenders often come stock with BF Goodrich All Terrain KO's  in 265/75-16 and that's what we normally fit on them.

Otherwise, we outfit the Defender for mud use with Firestone Destination MT's or BFG Mud Terrains. If lifting your Defender, one might go to a 33" or larger tire.

Freelander

The Freelander fared well on the stock Michelins, but if you got an early one with Goodyear HP's you probably want to upgrade. We often fit BFGoodrich AT KO's in 225/70-16 on stock height Freelanders and 225/75-16 on lifted Freelanders. The 17" and 18" versions typically convert to 16" wheels for off-road use.

For Series Rovers with 16" wheels, the BF Goodrich Mud Terrain is a popular choice in 235/85-16 size.
