Help so many pushchairs how to decide

Looking for a second pushchair, Confused by choice. We live in rural mid wales and need something rugged but have an old but much loved MB urban for muddy fields and school run. Want something to keep in car for trips to towns and city and days out that doesn't take up entire boot.

Thinking of a baby jogger maybe a versa gt or city mini gt? As am used to the air tyres and not so keen on plastic wheels. Are there any good alternatives? TIA

Most things have eva wheels now, not at all as hard as plastic, the versa and versa gt are not air tyres in the traditional sense. They are good though, I have the cmgt atm.

I'm thinking of alternatives too.. or trying to. I want a small robust pushchair, not necessarily with air tyres but very solid with good wheels, whatever they are made of. I find the cmgt too wide but that's a personal thing.

Soon kiddicare should be stocking the britax b motion, which is v similar but 4 wheels and smaller. It looked good when tiggy and i saw it earlier in the year.

I would also consider a second hand easywalker june (but i'm basing this on thinking of it as a forward facing pushchair due to issues with handling and seat position when it's in parent facing mode).

Thanks will check out the easywalker and the britax.

The plastic wheel thing might be a red herring I guess I just want something that is sturdy and awesome to push like my MB but much smaller folded.

I wouldnt worry about any of the simulated air tyres. They are pretty good and are non puncture!
Have a look at some of these or these for ideas. Most of these fold smaller and neater than a Mountain Buggy. There's loads of great off roaders TBH.

thanks Tiggy V. helpful will peruse but inital thoughts OMG I want that Babyzen, never heard of them looks amazing can't decide if my husband will kill me for spending the money or will be seduced by the flat fold and solar light enough to distract him.

My husband was well known locally for "flashing" his light at local shop keepers as he passed. Its one of my favourite pushchairs ever.
