So in chats with bfg as I went and Saw the bfg ko2 in the flesh. Tread design was very good and chunky, but the only thing that caught me by surprise was how softy the tread compound was. Felt to me like a really cheap mud tire. Bfg state a 15% increase in mileage and less wear when touring on rock,shake etc. Still awaiting a response from the engineer as to why the compound is so soft.

Looks like the dick crown fun country will be on my rims soon.

Hm sounds interesting!
Currently getting a quote on Maxxis Bighorns, I may have overstepped into mud terrain territory! :)

I feel bighorns got a bit pricy for what they do..first set cost me $250 per 285x75x16....second set was quoted at $300per tyre..got 45tho from the first set. Decent tyre but not for $300...just my thoughts

Was your 2nd set the second version? The 764? That could be the price increase. apparently they are meant to be an awesome improvement over the 762 model.
