Tyre technology is amazing isn't it. They are making tyres with emotions. Cars too. I reckon the next upgrade of the VW 4motion thingy will be the VW emotion, or maybe even VW 4play.

Kumho Crugen, KL33 265/50R20, only done 10k and i removed them for bigger tires. only had bitumen use, i would expect to double if not tripple the life over the KL21 with these as they are a much heavier compound.

full set of 4 plus 2 KL21 as spares, 6 tires all up. i originally paid $330ea.

cheers

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

So far no mention of the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. It comes in 275/55-20. Does anyone run these? Are they available internationally? There's a dedicated thread over in the tyres subforum for WK2s:
Duratrac wrangler 275/55/20.

Its tread is aggressive:

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

My wife completely tore the side of a tyre open when she took out a gutter, and with the tyres only having six more months of life at most I was left no choice but to replace the lot.

Went with the Nitto Grappler G2, stoked with the performance (and lack of noise) on the road so far... yet to take them offload.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Stock 265/50R20 - would love to go a taller sidewall for added protection, but I feel going wider and taller would instead achieve the opposite when you are then bulging the sidewall at full pressure and then flexing it further with reduced pressure offload. If I feel the need to address that in future I'll swap the wheels to 18".
