    Sorry not a Disco4 driver but I am in the tyre game, and I am not familiar with this issue?

    Most important for me would be to discuss it with your insurer before you put tyres on that is not of the same spec as the manufacturer specs.

    There was reportedly a bulletin by Land Rover approving Duratrac as OE. As stated it DOES have a Q (160) speed rating though. I wouldn't want to be in the position to have to convince my insurer that if LR says it's good enough, it's good enough.

    Just chatted to Goodyear rep. Also doesn't know about 'lack of Kevlar' issue??

    There is some info in the tyre section about the Kevlar issue, it still has the arimide layers but not 'Kevlar' as it is a trademark of DuPont.

    Best standard AT Discovery 4 tyre is Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 255/55r19. Best by far.

    Agree - have been running a set on my RRS, and very happy. They see a lot of rough mountain passes and rough terrain on a Karoo farm, no issues at all!

    Yes,but as far as I am aware not in RSA.When I bought the FFRR(20")I contacted GY and they said I should be available in RSA by Nov 2017 but I have not seen any reference to the 20".I bought D4 19"rims with Duratracs.Very happy with tyres but they are noisier than the 20" tyres,but otherwise excellentBeen to Gonareshou towing BushLapa and in Tuli after 30mm rain.No problem with the black mud
