This LRO reader emailed LRO.firstname.lastname@example.org to ask our experts about tyres for his Land Rover Discovery 3.
I have a 55-reg Discovery 3. It has Continenta 4x4 Contact 235/70 R17 11H M+S tyres fitted. I heard the equivalent Coopers were not so good. Is that true?

The Cooper AT3 reviews all come back with positive results, but I must admit a fairish percentage of Discovery 3 owners do seem to fit the General Grabber AT. You would have to go up in size to 245/70 R17, as General doesn’t list the AT in 235/70 R17.Going up to 245/70 R17 means you will need to buy five tyres instead of four.
