They look good.  I’ve been curious about them.  Not that I can run them but still.

I had to look up those tires, look really good! Sorry to hear about the KO2's, that's no fun at all.
How's the ride with these?

It’s almost like they weren’t mentioned in post 8 of this thread.  Haha.



Sorry.  Had to.

I struggled to balance my KO2's as well, but it ended up being my own fault, there were still balancing beads in them when the shop tried to balance, lol.

Seems that balancing issues is becoming more and more common with the KO2's.

Threw the new Fox 2.0's on today.   Ford made the front factory shocks nice and easy to get off.   (Total sarcasm).

Discount Tire guy told me they are having more and more issues with AKO's.  Told me that BFG has changed up the compounds 3 times in the past 3 years and can't seem to dial them in.   Even Discount Tire dropped their own version of the tire that was exclusive to Discount, it was the BFG, ATKO 2 DT, they were using the 3rd gen version and dropped them b.c of all the issues.   or something like that.    That's how I heard it (Mike Rowe)

My truck is going to be due for new tires pretty soon. I've had these KO2's for more than 3 years (that my be a record for me). I looked pretty seriously at the Recon Grappler's, but in the end I think the Toyo AT3's are going to take the win for me. I wouldn't recommend the AT3's for a 250 or 350, but for my little 150, I think they will hit all the marks I need and as a bonus meets the winter rating to give me a insurance discount.

We'll see.

Not sure you can go wrong with those choices.   Now that I have had the tires a bit, i really like them outside of that little tiny vibration at 62 mph that goes away at 64
