  3. For the road (max comfort and best fuel mileage) and good sand performance - Michellin LTX M/S or M/S2 or Primacy SUV. I used LTX for 3 years and Emmanuel is using Primacy. LTX M/S or M/S2 are an inch better than Primacy, if you can source them. Michellin aren't good for regular rock or wadi visits, occasional use is fine. Second option - Yokohama Geolander A/T or A/T2 - Reasonably good for on road use and best for off-road (sand) for stock cars. I am using these since last 6 years now. Geo's are fine with rock and wadi too. Stay away from BF Goodrich, Micky Thompson and Cooper STT - These are some heaviest tire that I mentioned above. They look good but unless you have twin turbo or supercharged engine, they will reduce the sand performance substantially.
  4. Place to buy is your choice from online or from Sharjah tire market (better rate) rather than fuel station (super overpriced). More importantly you should choose the tires as per your need that is 1) Road vs 2) Sand vs 3) Mountain and last vs 4) looks. Plenty of buyers go with looks alone and then live with the heaviest tires, which are not good for sand (long hill climbs) and result in deafening highway noise and substantial reduced fuel mileage. Chunky and beafy tire tread looks awesome but they are too heavy and not good for sand unless you do serious power mods to push those heavy tires/axle, but they are awesome for rocks (climbing or crawling) and mud if that's what you want. If you can share your usage, then we can advise you more better if you need help in deciding which tire you should buy.
