Ko2's or ?

so getting ready to pull my winter tires off and looking at my Ko2's...well...Im not gonna go another season on them. I think if I was still in Oregon I would..but out here in Alaska Im not.
I was very happy with my ko2's. And when I walk around parking lots etc, it seems Ko2 or general grabbers are the most popular. Seen some falkins.and of course tons of tires that are only for hiway so I dont look at those brands....could also be we have limited choice around here.
I have not paid much attention to how many miles they have gone. Got in spring 2016 and in Oregon they were off the road and replaced with studded snows about 4 months a year ( worked up in high mountains...lots of snow and ice..k02s suck on ice)

oh...and I do maybe now run 70% gravel off road 30% pavement and in Oregon it was prob 50/50. I run E series to help fight against rocks and sharp things in all the gravel

so sorry to bring up an old topic....but ..... what you guys rocking.

Falken Wildpeak AT3W's sound like a good fit for you. They're available in LT, have similar or better traction than KO2's, have better wet handling than KO2's, and are fairly quiet on road

Seconded. They're significantly cheaper too.

Those Falken Wildpeaks are gaining a lot of traction They're real popular with the Tacoma guys. The things said in this thread and what a read before are, in my opinion, true aboutr the KO2s, not so great on wet roads or ice, started to get noisy after about 15K. They were GREAT for anything offroad and they looked damn good. I do like the look of the Falkens though. I thought I read something about the siping in the tread disappearing too early as they wore and lost a lot of their wet traction. I read that 3 years ago so maybe they changed something.

In my opinion for gravel, dirt, and general backcountry travel.

Goodyear Duratrack
BFG KO2
Toyo M-55
Then all the others.

On my second set of Cooper AT3 tires and I am sold on them. Great mileage, good off road performance in a crazy set of conditions, good road manners in rain/dry/muddy, and the price is right. Plus they have a mileage warranty.

I have ran KO2s, Hankook ATs, and Goodyear LTs on this 4Runner. I am staying with the Coopers. Lower weight and they take a real beating off road.

I drive up to the mountains in Colorado frequently during the winter when there is snow and ice for skiing and such and I have seen a fair amount of rigs running a Goodyear tire called Ultra-terrain. Supposedly good in snow and ice and even sandy beaches. Best of both worlds.
I'm on KO2s now as well and will be buying tires soon and these are on my short list.

Iíve been reading that Duratracs are pretty much like KO2s, but then even better in snow and ice. I would be getting them, but Costco doesnít carry them

Ko2's or ?

#1 most overrated tire in existence is the KO2......


I donít buy into hype. No GOBI here either.

I have had Falken Wildpeaks for about two years. Wear is great. Snow, ice, rain and floods they do good. Off-road loose rock, sand, mud they do fine.

They are a little noisy but itís an AT itís going to be a little noisy. They ďcanĒ be difficult to balance but it depends on if itís a lazy tech doing the job.

Others to consider....
General Grabber ATX
COOPER AT3

All great tires.

They last as long as you rotate them frequently. There are better tires on the road like the Dunlap A/T tire on my wife's trd pro but when the pavement ends most other tires get left behind. If you don't go offroad but a few times a year and even then it is just light trail riding you could get a light truck tire and call it a day.

Iím off-road nearly every weekend, which is why Iím considered MTs, but I donít want to lose a lot of MPG or sacrifice on road performance such as in rain/snow/ice.
