Pirelli ATR plus are like hen's teeth.

After much thought and reading on here, I had finally decided on Pirreli ATR plus tyres. (Del's favourites). Trying to order them today (in France) but nobody has them in stock.

I don't understand why they are all out of stock.!!!! Bloody Brexit Rolling Eyes

What would be the nearest alternative option? I do a lot of towing at full capacity, some of which is across building sites and fields, which can be wet and muddy. However if it is extreme I can unload the digger or use the digger to pull the D3 and trailer out, so I don't need muds.

At the weekends it is the family car so nothing to extreme or loud.

On my Shogun I had BFG A/T and only got stuck a few times but they did impact consumption and comfort a bit too much.

Any recommendations most welcome.

Thanks

Never tried the Plus variety, too new for me. Plus don’t blame Brexit, it’s Pirelli we’re talkng about, that’s Italian for tyre chaos. Whistle It’s always been like that for ATRs. Rolling Eyes

Can't get the standard ATR's anymore the plus is the replacement. Is this normal for Pirelli then?

Waiting for Camskill to respond. I should get them at zero rated VAT. For the moment anyway.

Not surprising that the ATR Plus is difficult to get - it doesn't exist. Rolling with laughter

It's the All Terrain Plus. Whistle

Pirelli's history of making certain tyres hard to get is why I'll probably go for the AT3 again, much as I like the look of the All Terrain Plus.
