A buddy of mine spotted this in Pala, California. Now time to see if anything else could be found from the shot that we dont already know about.
The KO2 is an excellent tire and definitely a welcome replacement to the KM. It doesn't add much to performance on the trail, but it's phenomenally better in rain and snow.Personally, I like those black wheels and tire combo in the pic. While a beefier tire would certainly look more aggressive, the wheel / tire in the above pic would work for me for a while.
There was a woman driving the JT.It may just be me, but it seems everyone of these pics has the same driver, is this guy driving the 2018's all over the country and that's his job? Pretty sweet gig if so. Maybe they have a bunch of 50+ year old drivers, and they just appear to be the same guy!
I agree with the prowess of the KO2 as well as the Duratracs they are testing, but they won't be replacing the KMs, the KM2 is expected to replace the KMs (I would prefer the MTR for tread pattern), the KO2 is not agressive enough for a Rubi/HR/Recon.The KO2 is expected more as a replacement for the Dueller which is a weak tyre in the cold, and not aggressive enough formthe trail. They already use the KO2s on special editions, like the Black Bear and last 2 years of Winter editions, my Aspen-X unfortunately got the Silent Armors (like the 75A), I would've prefered the KO2s for sure.The KO2 is an excellent tire and definitely a welcome replacement to the KM.
