62,000 klms on mine and going tomorrow. Great tyre up to about 50k then deteriorated in performance. Very harsh ride now and damn near dangerous in the wet. Admittedly mine have copped a bit of a flogging with quite a few High Country trips and the y performed well in the bush with only a tyre rolled off the rim to speak about (and probably my fault for too low pressure) Would I buy them again.....no. I think there are other tyres that the Paj (and my butt ) might find more comfortable on road.

My choices for the new tyres are
Nitto Ridge Grappler 265/65/18
Nitto Terra Grappler 265/60/18
Dick Cepek Trail Country 265/65/18

I've had KO2s on my Nov 2015 NX since new and use a 5 tyre rotation every 5,000km. To date I've done 105,000km and still have 10,000 or so in them. At least half distance travelled pulling 1400kg trailer and some, but not a lot, of off road (eg High Country) use.

No problems with them at all, other than they have been a bit noisy and it seems worse now towards end of life.

Have you looked at the Yokohama X-AT? https://www.yokohamatire.com/tires/geolandar-x-at

After disappointing performance of some more aggressive tyres in the High Country back in January, twisted32 had these fitted. So far, they're performing very well off-road, and standing up to our rocky terrain much better.

Yep looked at the Yokahamas, Coopers ,Radar, Falken….. and heaps more. The more you look the more you confuse yourself with what you like.
I ended up going with the Dick Cepek Trail Country .Will be fitted this arvo...I had the Dick Cepek Fun Country on the old Challenger for a while and was happy how they performed.
Will see hoW the TRAIL Country goes

We put 40,000 Km on ours in Africa - same result - no punctures/flats/blowouts.



However we are now running Toyo Open Country ATs - recommended by the shop as being as good as the BFGs and a better price. They've been excellent so far.

Not really much to report because of lockdown in Melb making it hard to get out anywhere, be lucky if I have done 500 klms on them. Got the paj out in the wet one day and was impressed with the grip going through a couple of roundabouts in 2wd. Can't help with much more than that at this stage
