The BFGoodrich Long Trail range has been discontinued for some time now and
replaced (as you correctly post) by the Macadam, this is a totally road
biased tyre with directional tread, a very good tyre with quite stiff
sidewalls and giving good tread life , we have had customers getting up to
45K out of them but my only concern is that the supply has been up and down
over the last 9 months which does get a bit frustrating for us if we can't
replace a tyre for one of our customers.
One to take a good look at is the newish General Grabber UHP which is
available in the size you require, the feed back we are getting is very,very
positive and having just tested these on a Disco II, I am very impressed,
the level of grip is fantastic, well worth a look.
