    Tyre recommendations

    Hi Folks

    Just about to add an XC70 to my collection due to all the snow and where I have moved to.....basically..... a muddy field in Basingstoke! Hence full of cow pats and deep mud. The D5 is struggling in the mud so all 4 wheels driving is a better option.

    I spotted a Cross Country with some mean looking boots online - possibly 'Goodyear Wranglers'? But these seem MEGA expensive!

    So any good suggestions for an all terrain tyre please?!

    Cheers
