OK, so I am 2000 miles into AT2 ownership

No noise, these are astounding

Wet grip is as good as any road biased tire

Snow grip is tremondous, realy proved their worth in the recent (UK) problems

MPG is down by about 5%, not enough to worry me that much

No visable wear at all

A great tire

Note - markings on sidewall indicate manufactured in the Czech Rebulic (which does not realy exist in the new Europe!)

Yes mate, just the standard size at the moment, but looking in to a 2" Lift accompanied by some 255/70's. As for the Air Dam, I picked up some spray paint, custom match "PS2 Bright Silver Metallic", from my local automotive store ("halfords" for the UK members). Several layers of grey primer, numerous layers of the paint match and a few sprays of lacquer. All done and dusted in my garage within 24 hours - just took the air dam off so I could still use the car at time of drying.

Not sure on the speed rating buddy, and as such, don't give a damn about the scum of the earth insurance companies You are right though, it is a grey area here in the UK - especially if you spec winter tyres, which are usually always a lower speed rating...

For your info, I bought them from Camskill

As I've said to you before, I also had the AT2's on my old WJ, great tyre, but for me, on the WK with 17's, white writing is essential, as well as the other important stuff, of course
