    Tires other than KO2 for the rain and snow

    Thanks for everyone's input. I narrowed it down to the Toyo Open Country AT III and the Falken Wildpeaks. Based on recent info from Joe Bacal that the tread compound of the falkens has recently been changed, I purchased the Toyos. They should be in tomorrow. @AlpineAccess - Discount Tire did...

    Tires other than KO2 for the rain and snow

    Those look like MT tires, might be a bit aggressive for what I'm looking for.

    Tires other than KO2 for the rain and snow

    Could that be local to CO maybe? I don't see any indication of that on their website. Or do I have to sign up for their email marketing? And can you combine that with a price match?

    Tires other than KO2 for the rain and snow

    I thought the Hakkapelitas are snow tires? The whole family used to run those when we lived in Vermont, good stuff in the snow. I don't think I see enough snow to need a snow tire.

    Tires other than KO2 for the rain and snow

    I lived in California at the time, wheeled around the desert southwest mostly, so not a lot of rain. Usually when it rained, I was by myself and way out there, so I usually waited for it to dry up rather than risk getting stuck. I don't remember having any issues with rain when driving around...

    TB Change Due To Age?

    My LX was at only 46K on the timing belt, but a little over 10 years so due for replacement by that measure. When I had it in to Torfab, they looked at it by looking under the cam cover, and showed me that it looked basically new. So I'm not worrying about it and just keeping an eye on the water...

    100s are tough, but elk hurt

    Glad the fam is OK. Always seems to happen when you're almost home, doesn't it? I've driven there a bunch, it is elk central for sure.

    Replacing Radiator and Alternator, anything else I should do "while I'm in there"?

    Thanks @Junkman09 and @AlpineAccess. I had the truck checked out by Torfab up in Everett when I bought it, and they did the steering rack bushings and fluid exchanges then.
