For mud lovers,
Equipped with Cooper Discoverer STT 235 85R/16 for fronts, Good Year Wrangler MT/R 235 85R/ 16 for rears.
An on road driver at first can complain with the excess noise on the highway but, this lasts just until the first mud journey off the road. Believe me those MTs, whatever the brand is, they will perform the best soonest after you replaced the stock tires.
In Summer the tires are changed to Pirelli Scorpion A/T 235 85R/16.
