Looking to get some more offroad capable tyres for my vit but have been trawling for ages to find a decent pair. The wheel size is 215/65/16, bigger than the jlx. It seems to be a really awkward size as there are very few all-terrain or mud terrain tyres in this size. I don't personally feel i need MT tyres, as my offroading is for work really (going through woods, over a few muddy fields but nothing major) but this will only occur 30% of my driving. As most of my driving will be on-road i don't think MTs are practical. General Grabber AT2 seems to be the only decent AT in my size, although i would have liked bfgoodrichs but they do no compatible size.

Does anyone know of a better AT or even a MT tyre with good on-road qualities that will fit?

I have just fitted a set of colway c-trax remolds at 235/70/16 of to my stranded rims but before that i had 215/70/16 witch have a much better choice than the stranderd 216/65/16's

beware on changing tyre sizes as this will affect your speedo readings...
