I have a set of achilles desert hawk Mt mud terrain tyres on my ranger wildtrak auto. Half decent in the mud but like all mud terrain tyres not a lot of good on wet and icy roads. Occasionally see them for sale on ebay.
I am at the point of buying a set of 16" wheels for the pickup as there are a far bigger choice of 16" mud terrain tyres available.

I would recommend you go for the narrowest tyres you can get the same circumference.
I had 265 on my new pickup they were next to useless slid about on greasy surface.
Advice from TFF members was get narrower tyres,I now have 225 but think narrower would be even better.

Got General Grabber X3 tyres on our Amarok. Very little choice in the Amarok tyre size. Early days so far but been impressed with them for field use. Noisy on the road but they'll all be like that. They're a new tyre and have been getting good reviews.
