If you can get a set of TKC's to fit,they are as good as you can get for on off road use.

This is the site I get my tyre's from,then get them fitted at BFM In shipley.

Basil now uses these and say's they are very good and they last.

Depending on what type of off roading your doing i would say the TKC80's will handle it ok. I bought a set in easter when i went off roading in wales. I think the rear lasted around 3k miles or so but i did have to travel all the way from northern ireland to wales so alot of miles on the middle of the tyre. Fronts still fine and took it off as might do some more off roading again on my year out on uni.

As for price i think thats a bit steep i think got mine from MandP.co.uk and i think they cost £110 all in to Norn Ireland

As for the Avons havent tried them yet but bought a set off Jasxt and have them waiting in the garage. hmm new rubber
