Ok so the 275/55/r20 nitto is like 11 lbs lighter per tire. Which is 44 lbs for the set. Thinking that 44 lbs on the wheels will make acceleration and breaking a lot more heavy. I am in socal, so getting the snow flake rating for me is over kill. And I only plan to off road 3 to 5 times a year, and not do anything to crazy. Just remote camping and a little fun. I got the v6 so I don't really need the extea rubber on the road of the 285 g2 which is about 16 lbs heavier for the set than the 275 nitto. So although the ko2 is bad ass I think the nitto 275 suits me best... anyone think of something I am missing and should consider?

I think that's a great option. Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with either one. The KO2s are a little harder core, but just marginally. I'm going to put a set of the Nitto's on next time because it really was a coin flip for me. Take some pictures and let us see.
