    2.8's Sound great, but a worked 3.0L goes better

    First impression on road are good so far, very quite and comfortable, just like a new set of bfg ko's. Looking forward to see how they go offroad.

    Interestingly, these new Toyos definitely seem to be on the narrow side of life for a 285... when I compare them to the 275 bfg ko and the other two 265 muddies I have, they all look fairly similar in width.

    Looking good. I will be getting a set within the next fortnight. 265x75x16 for myself i will not go any bigger. Just my opinon, there is nothing wrong with a narrower width. Cuts through mud better getting to the base. Plus we all air down to suit conditions also i don't see military vehicles with big fat tyres. Just my two bobs worth

    Yeah I agree with not going too wide... it was just an interesting observation that these measure so narrow for a 285... I only wanted to go to the 33s since doing the suspension lift, looks a much better size on a Landcruiser. I always keep to the 265s on the Triton.

    So it's a big thumbs up so far for the Toyo RTs.
    We did a mixture of trails today, mostly easy state forest trails but with one low range, steep, muddy, technical climb thrown in, It was that slippery red clay with sharp jagged shale type of climb. Had to give it a couple of goes with rear locker to get the right line. The Toyos performed exceptionally! I had to air down a little more than expected but, wow once aired down they were amazing. They hooked up well on the fast gravel too, very confident inspiring. I think I'm going to be very happy with these tyres... may never buy another mud tyre again if these continue to impress.

    That's great to hear. A nice variety of terrain to give the tyres a real good test.

    It is re-assuring to know that you have made the right decision. Especially with something like Tyres that will last a long time (unless you sell).

    The KO2s have been on the Jeep for 3 months now. I am still really enjoying these tyres. They are sooooo much better than the old KM2s. As a mentioned, this is partly because the KM2s were coming up to being 8 years old and were loosing shape, etc.

    On road the KOs are better in every way (grip, noise, cornering, etc)

    Off road the KO2s have done the job for me. I haven't really pushed them in slippery tracks or sharp rocks, more "normal" high country style tracks. They have performed well. I am sure I will eventually experience a time where I would prefer to the MTs. At this point, still very happy with the decision.

    There are two negatives:

    The KOs don't look nearly as cool as MTs on a 4wd. I know, i know.

    I was expecting a noticable decrease in fuel economy. While I don't monitor my economy that closerly, I would say they are returning similiar economy to the KM2s.
