running 18's on my Discovery 4, great for Pyrenees trip last summer, but that was rocky and dry. Good road manners on tarmac, but the one place I've not tried them is mud. I'd expect them to be pretty good, but not up to MT tyres in really gloopy stuff.

I have them on my defender, and whilst like all AT's they do clag up, the sidewalls make a huge difference and will get you through pretty much most stuff. NW040 - North West 4x4 Response

i have KO2s on several defenders, they perform better than the original ATs in mud and better than the MTs on wet rocks.

i have a set of KM2s on a 90 for Drive round days and they are great for my application, 1hr on road, 5-6 hrs off road, 1 hr on road back home.

if its for a road vehicle ie <50 of time off road i would fit KO2s, if its for a vehicle that spends 50% or more of its time off road i would fit the KM2s Cheers

I have not got KO2s on mine, but I have driven muddy tracks with other vehicles that did have KO2s and their performance was noticeably worse than my Michelins (which have a much less aggressive looking tread)...

i have both new and old style bfg at

new ones are quiet on road slightly better on fuel and to me almost the same off road.

ive tried them on the 130 pulse i run and 90 and a 110 and with various pressures suit all the landys.

depending on how much mud and time off road would alter what i would recomend.

Only the Latitudes in 7.50. They're nothing to look at, but seem to work very well for me.
When I need the traction I let some air out but my comparison was done with aired down KO2s too.

I've been to a pay and play with them and had no traction issues either. Lots of people with Insa Turbo Special Tracks failing hill climbs that I wasn't and I've not got any traction aids. I do put that down to the drivers being idiots though.
