Just interested to hear if anyone has any experience of these? Had a set fitted to my new to me D4, the shop had inflated them over standard pressure and I was getting a bit iof vibration at around 25mph. Dropped to standard pressures and they were much better, have gone down again to 30/33 which is probably a little soft but was just looking to confirm that the tyre pressure was having an effect and it wasn't something mechanical.

They are fairly aggressive looking so perhaps it's to be expected.

From pictures, they appear to be similarly "aggressive" to the Grabber AT3 which doesn't cause vibrations at standard and higher pressures.

I'd start by getting the balance checked and adjusted as out-of-balance tyres will cause vibrations as you describe.

I'm going to need some new tyre soon, so I'm now taking these may be an option. Can you let me know how you get on with them?

Had them rebalanced elsewhere, they were apparently quite a bit out. It has made a noticeable difference at higher speeds but still have it around 25mph so have some investigating to do. I suspect it's prop shaft or drivetrain related which is really odd as it was perfect when I picked it up but that's discoveries for you I guess.

On the tyre front hard to say while I have the other issue to sort but so far so good. They are a bit noisier than than the road tyres that came off it but that's to be expected. I like the look of them (yes even the white lettering though I think you can get them without), they appear to behave fine on the road. I was attracted but the fact the are three peaks rated and the fact that they look like they should do just fine with some light laning.

Hi, Adam!

I'm looking for a set of Terratoura AT or Toyo Open Country AT3... Not decided yet.

I come from a set of Grabber AT2. They've worked fine for me for a long time.
They were a bit fluffier when cornering in highways, compared with the road tires, but not bad.
Quite good on snow and slight flooded road.
They got a bit damaged on the sidewalls (sharp rocks in the Land Rover Party), but they survived until the end of the tread life.
Just a bit noisy when new about 60km/h (37mph) -not annoying-.

There's almost no feedback about the Terratoura on the net...
Do you have any news about them?

I'm looking for something similar to my old Grabber AT2, still good on the road, but better on mud, snow and rocks. The AT3 seem to me to much asphaltic...

In your oppinion, may I try the Terratoura?

Thanks!!!

I don't have anything negative to say about them but I've not had enough time to really say either way sorry. They aren't excessively loud in my opinion, yes road only tyres will be quieter but that's a given.

I don't drive hard so haven't found the limits of them but I haven't felt at any point that there's anything to cause concern.

For the price I think there's a good chance that they're a good deal, at this point nothing is making feel I've made a mistake in buying them, I just need to get to the bottom of a vibration which I don't think it's tyre related but I can't rule it our at this point. I will update the threads I've mentioned it in once it's sorted.

Hi!

I finally chose the Toyo Open Country AT3. I was doubting between the Terratoura and the Open Country, but then there was no stock of Terratoura's and that was decisive...

They don't look as aggresive as in the web, but I like them.

By now, only tested on dry road. Really good feeling, both on higway and on curvy mountain road! I didn't look for their limits, but they feel very direct, and the previous "floating" feeling disappeared. It's like having a new Disco!

We went skiing and on a short, but snow covered parking ramp, the Disco climbed as if there was no snow on it!

Now I'm expecting for future snowy days, 4x4 muddy (not extreme) tracks, with illusion!!!

Thanks for your attention!!!
