Ive Goodyear M&S tyres, not new but reasonable tread left.

Got caught out on a grassy/muddy bend next to a large soak-away ( which freaked out my gf as she thought we were gonna slide in )

I stopped and allowed some settling, a gentle rock back and forth and some steering wiggling and off we went, not missing a beat.

Ego did take over as the brother in law did say, chunkier tyres would be better and did i want him to go up the local farm and get a tractor to pull us out !!!!

Wasn't going to happen on my watch lmao.

Overall im happy with the capabilities for my needs, and deep snow last year on semi bald tyres meant all those summer whining soft tops ( moan 4x4 taking all the parking up, gas guzlers, chelsea tractors, smokey diesels ) kept asking if id help tow them out of trouble :shock:
