either look for a cheap set of remoulds or a second hand set of decent offroad tyres, theres usually some on ebay and always seem great value to me.

depends how much you can afford to spend - ive got general ATs, good value for money, but i waited until the duellers needed replacing first, gave me time to stash the magic beans and wear out the duellers. They've lasted well and are pretty good on and off road

the wheels are off a vitara that did plastic wide wheel arches so they do have a little off set to them.

Colways are quite a rare find as the company went bust in 2007. I got a set of colway atacamas off eBay at a great price and they are great tyres except a bit rough for for the amount of motorway driving I do, the car sounds like a ww2 plane trying to take off. Mine are 205/75/15's, which colways have you seen?
