Hi all thought I would post my new pics of the KO2's!!! Running at 40psi. I wanted the 275/70r18 size but they are not coming out until march and we needed some tires to get us through winter. As far as on road goes they are really quite, can barely hear them on the freeway or in the city. Ride is nice just a tad bit stiffer but really not bad at all. I haven't been able to hit any trails but we mostly do mild to moderate trails only. Full size spare fits no problems at all

The SUV will pretty much stay stock. I took out the back seats, put in the dvd override system, and have the slee sliders on order, putting them on next week... After that I should be done

Is the tread pretty similar to the originals? I like the new shoulder design.

Thanks! Tread is close to the original design but you can tell there are not exactly alike.. The blocks seem not so uniform and There seems to be a lot more sipes..

FJ shots are in American Fork canyon 45 minutes outside of Salt Lake City... Cool place there is a cool little state park call timpanogos cave

very cool - any rubbing with them or other issues? our OE trees have maybe 5k left in them and these look great (not to mention i am a fan of the BFG A/T's on my D90)

Wonder how these would look on a 200 series LX570? They make them in 275/55/20 size. Think it would be like a guy in a tuxedo wearing combat boots?

This is what I am thinking of as well. I have been looking for a set of ATs that are quiet on tarmac - as I mostly do highway kms on the LX - bonus if they come in stock 20".

Mscruiser did a little excel spread sheet and it seems this size doesn't really rub. This particular tire in this size has no rubbing issues at all for me driving around the city and highway. I don't know about on the trail have not been yet, but will post back once I do.
