Mum and Dad live a ways up a gravel road, and do a lot of dirt road driving in the Magna - and its really tough on tyres.
Most normal road tyres wear really fast as they get chipped away by lots of little cuts from the sharp quartz gravel they use on our roads, plus they do a lot of kms... Also want something with blocky tread for the common forays onto muddy roads.
I was thinking about the modern radial "light truck" tyres like the Michelin Agilis, the sort of thing you get on Berlingos and Vito vans etc.
Are they really heavy? Too much of a compromise on handling etc? I know they're certainly bloody expensive, so what other good options are about that might be cheaper?
I sorta want an SUV type tyre in a car size...
