These tires are sweet. I have about 2000 miles on them. They are tall and skinny. The grip well on the trail. Mine are load range e so I'm running them at 40 psi. I aired them down to 20 psi for the trail but they barely pooched out at all. But they still gripped excellent. The only other tires I've ridden that grab this well are my boggers on my jeep, and they are in a whole different ball park.

Just km2s sorry pics are a pain for me as I have to upload em twice. I got about 7500 plus miles rotating every 2500 miles and they are still smooth and quiet. Good tires I think I'm going with falken rocky mountains next round due to the road friendliness, and I live up here not much real mud just mostly dry dirt and rock sandy bottom holes.

PostSubject: tires looked aried dowm what psi   Tue Jun 26, 2012 5:32 pm

Just did the fourth rotation now a little over 10k and still no cupping and running smooth. They have gotten louder as the temperature has increased they grip the road a little more.

I am still really happy with my km2;s. Last trail ride I lowered the psi to 15lbs and wow it made a huge difference. I am running load range e so I guess the difference between 20 psi that I ran last time and the 15 the next is the key. They gripped everything amazingly well. I did several steep climbs that usually take heavy skinny pedal without spinning a single wheel.
