Met a guy who was using these tyres on his MH. BF Goodrich KO2. He reckons they are better grip than the Michelin Crossclimate and quiet too. The sidewalls are reinforced allowing to run at lower pressure therefore a better ride.
Bonus is they are 3 peaks for winter. Any thoughts.

I seen a few with these tyres here on standard motorhomes plus a few on Mann Crafter type conversions. The owners have said they give much better grip on grass. I did see one set on the front of a ducato but standard tyres on the back. It may have been practical but to be honest it looked silly.

£200 a tyre, noisy but not too bad. Will do 80 thousand miles before needing replacing. Best AT tyre there is but there are some cheaper alternatives that are nearly as good.

I do laugh a little when I seen them on all four wheels when it's a 2wd vehicle.

This is the explanation.
The 3-Peak Mountain (3PMS) symbol on a tire means that it has been tested for acceleration on medium-packed snow and meets specific standards, tires that meet the 3PMS criteria have scored at least a 110 on the traction index. That means that “they accelerate at least 10% faster than a typical all-season tire that isn’t 3PMS rated.

But in reality some country's are looking at insisting that in winter you must have them fitted, if you are going to be driving above a certain height, in the mountains.

Just ordered 2 Michelin Crossclimate Camping tyres. I was checking the tyres to see when they were made 2 were 2014 and the other 4 were 2016. They are in good condition with no cracks in the walls. I'm going to replace the front 2 now and get another set before Feb. Checked the spare and its marked 0503 so well past its sell date even though its 4mm tread. I'll use one of the 2016 as spare and get the spare onto the front with one of the new ones. I negotiated with the tyre place to get the same price as quoted by Quickfit as I prefer to give to a small firm.
