The track I took mine up was very steep and rocky. I had (and still have) the stock Kumho's, give it a go!!!

Me too. The traction control works wonders. The tyres slipped a bit but it kept powering up the hill.

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

Went for a drive to check out a camping spot near by. Wasn't expecting anything worse than a graded dirt road. Seems the "roads" on the map weren't exactly what you'd call a road. Gave the hill descent a bit of a work out, very impressed with that, makes going down loose rocky tracks so much easier. (Drag Hill Rd near Clonbinane, Vic)

Unfortunately no video as I was on my own and concentrating on driving.

I'll have to go back with the compressor so I can air down and have a crack at going up Drag Hill Rd

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

What can my WK2 do?

It can get me to fantastic places like this - somewhere on the Australian coast.

And the car really is unbeatable on the sand - does it easy. A little throttle and let the traction control do the rest.

I run 18 PSI. Just because I always have in all my cars - it works for me.

And I'm too old to know what a BAR is, other than the pub you go to after a day at the beach.

1 BAR is equal to 14.7psi or 1 atmosphere.
