    had a thread running "on the other side", so thought i would give this a go here.
    The "lump" has 255/60/17 Goodyears on, they have done about 14,000 now and i suspect another couple of thousand to go. When i put them on, it came to £400 all in, now to replace with same its neared £550, so thinking of cheaper tyres. I do not drive it like i nicked it, i am very sedate now, but wife does use it to tow horse trailer.
    It has been suggested NEXEN would be ok, also LANDSAIL.
    Does anyone have thoughts or experience of cheaper branded Tyres ? Or am i really throwing good money after bad.

    Currently 2003 ML270. 2012 Nissan Maxima 250SL.
    Same vehicle. Changed mine to Nexen 235/65/17 and did 70000km on them - a bit noisy. Have now changed to same size Kumho with a quieter tread pattern. Cost here AUS $600 for 4. Rides well, steers well and quieter. Hope it does similar mileage. I find 235's ride better and don't tramline like the wider ones. Very similar circumference so speedo is just as accurate.

    Don't fit Landsail. Don't think I've heard of anyone having a good experience with them. My own experience with them on a car I bought was they should have been called Deathsliders.

    Not sure if they have your size, but also have a look at the Cooper range.

    Well respected in the off-road fraternity, and have been very impressed with more road-biased versions on Lady Rotor's XC60 and my Pa's Freelander 2.

    Smooth, quiet, handles better than Continental CrossContact that were on before.

    I agree, Cooper tyres are on our Santa Fe 4X4 and they are grippy and quiet and wear very well.

    I'd forgotten about Cooper tires. Really good tyres.
