I'm mainly comparing my 63k mile, 6 year old Duratracs to these half tread, 4 year old KO2's.
MPG's are nearly identical.
Traction in the rain is superior to the Duratracs. Both light and heavy rain.
Highway driving, KO2's are quieter.
Handling, I think the Duratracs gripped more and were a little more consistent.
Loose heavy Snow, Duratracs are better.
Ice and snow, I prefer the Duratracs.
Highway speeds on freshly plowed roads with the hard pack crud, KO2's are more steady.
Looks, depending on my mood, I still prefer the Duratracs.
I have not been off road or been through any mud with the KO2's yet.
I think for Minnesota daily driving from April through October, the KO2's would be a great tire. For October through April and for wheeling, I'd prefer a fresh set of Duratracs.
So I can't believe a just read an entire 28 page build thread in one night. I'm a glutton for punishment. 🤣😂🤣
Cograts on the new house and assistant navigator on the way. But reading through this whole thread gave me a couple of things to think about. I've been thinking about the type of lift I want to do to my truck. Haven't decided on some type of Titan swap or a regular coil over spring lift. So your thread was an interesting read. Deciding how to lift the truck is not an easy thing to decide. LOL
@azcowboy Thank you. And no, deciding on the lift was not an easy choice. I tend to over think things. But, In the end, function and budget won out for me. I don't have coil over money and my truck is a daily driver.
