Tires are a very personal choice. I suspect there is in reality very little difference between the performance of AT's and MT's. MT's look better, but are also markedly worse on the road, especially in terms of noise and vibration.

I don't know what your primary use is, but I have some idea of what is available in your area.

In sand, there are two distinct opinions. Some guys believe very aggressive muddies work best, others believe that a very mild tread (highway terrain) is best. Sidewall strength is not necessary and is in fact probably a disadvantage. I think muddies have an advantage while climbing dunes if the car has plenty of power, the rest of the time they are more likely to dig down than tires with a much less aggressive tread pattern.

For Namibian rock I would be very hesitant to trust road tires though, and you really want as many reinforcing layers as you can lay your hands on. Your rocks are really sharp!

Thank you all for your valued inputs, I will need tyres mainly 90% offroad sand, gravel, salt and rocks and 10% tar. I think the muddies might hold back in the sand not sure :think: I have currently got Goodyear wrangler AT on a good sand tyre hower a bit to soft for rocks it cuts easy.
