If you can go for the BF's as they seem to last forever, my previous motor had them fitted and did 40k + with them before I sold it and still had loads of tread left.
I've got the general grabbers at2's and they are very similar, but they have a softer compound of rubber (they work better on snow!) and cost less.

I had 265 BFG ATs on my 90TD and liked them. Never had any handling issues in the rain and they were decent offroad as well, not that I went anywhere really tricky mind you.

Haven't experienced the others so can't comment on them or compare them sorry.

Had Hankook 265 AT tyres on the 90" - Brill. Very Happy

Never had a chance to try them on anything testing off road Crying or Very sad but great on road - super on deep standing water and good on snow and ice.

Seems to ware well..tough.. and well priced.

Have you considered remoulds, like Insa Turbo's? We run Insa Turbo Rangers (AT pattern) on the 90. Good quality, well priced. I can't fault 'em and also saves more rubber, most of which gets thrown away once the tread has worn down...

The AT2's have been going on and on and on for me for over 22000 miles, mostly road use with a little off road as well. Never had a problem on the road and looking at them they should last another 20000 miles easily. Didn't like the sandy stuff off road though.

I've got to go for the Insa Turbos been on mine for about four years now and still plenty of tread even though I'v done around 10/12K per year for the past 2 years. Never faulted off road and compared to the rest very cheap, and at fifty miles an hour do you need the all singing all dancing BFG's.

I had a set of BFG ATs. In fact I still have them and with plenty of tread too. Great tyres on and off road but - unfortunately they are now supporting the garden shed. The sidewalls are all split due to the steel reinforcement breaking underneath and cutting through (not due to kerbing or other damage).

I am currently using some second-hand Avon Rangemasters which are actualy very good on road and surprisingly good off road even though they don't have an aggresive pattern.

A friend has been using Insa turbos for a while and speaks very highly of them, especialy as they are much cheaper than anything else new.

I wouldn't.

I'd fit (indeed did fit) the cooper STT muds - better off road, and are much quieter, more fuel efficient, hard wearing and better looking on road than any other tyre i've tried.

Had mine on the 110 for about 30k miles, on and off road, and so far only minimal wear is evident.

Thats my tuppence woth then.

I'm on my second set of STT MTs, they are probably the best tyre i've had on. The Grabber AT2s are also fabulous, but they won't do as much off road. In summary, the STT MTs are very good if you want an aggressive tyre, but the AT2s will be good on road and look a bit more subtle but will also do well off road.

I have BFG AT's on my 90 TD5, My uncle has the same on his 110 that he uses daily on the farm, been used in all conditions you could imagine from deep mud and water to snow and rain both on and off road, we swear by them and have never had any problems, loads of tread still on them they seem to go on forever, I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for new tyres.
