Was it a OEM Kumho? If so, not surprised.

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

Hi Bob,

will be replacing them next week with some A/T tyres

Good move! Just note that not all A/T tyres even of the same model, are necessarily LT if that is an issue for you.

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

My WK2 can get very bogged.

I was impressed with how well it did getting me to the lake though. Dirt/sand road with a lot of water, and towing a fairly big Sea-Doo, it was no mean feat.



And one of me taking the dogs for a spin. Other dog is sitting on the starboard side.

That should read, "...are not necessarily LT...", sorry!

A "Sea-Doo"? Is that like what whales do?

Nope, it was right the first time, just a bit disjointed. To put it simply, A/T tyres are not always LT construction; some are passenger construction.

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

Too much coffee! Anyway, you are right on both counts although a granddad now.

Re: Lets see what your WK2 can DO!

First swim. At OR2 wasn't much more than a puddle! It was about 600mm deep at its deepest. This was at junction of Macleay river and George's creek off the Armidale Kempsey road at Easter.
