I looked them up.

They look great. Too bad these weren't available then.

I would buy the new DTs

You have to dig through all their bfg tires to find the DTs

Here are the 275/70/18s

Curious to see how these work out for people. I couldn't get more than 35k miles out of a set of normal KO2s and I don't tow nearly as much as some these guys.

I'm in the market for tires within the next month or so. The K02s were on my list but poor treadlife on diesels and no option without raised whites knocked them off the list. I found the KO2 DTs during my search. I'd be apt to try them but I don't want to run the white lettering on the inside. I'd rather not have it at all.

Anyone know if these can be purchased black sidewall? I only see raised whites in the pics.

I have been leaning toward Ridge Grapplers. I have +50K on the stock Duratrac's and would go back to them if it weren't for the noticeable sidewall squirm.

I donít know. Let us know if you find out. I wonít avoid running them whites turned in but Iím stock suspension, so you wonít ever see anything.

Still amazed at how the manufacturer ignores the fact that most consumers do not want white sidewalls.

Daytona, sure! Offroad rally races, great!

Seems like everyone is scared to try them.

If you have the new DT with the 50k mileage warranty please post here with feedback on how they are doing for you.

I tow a 14,000 pound 5th wheel and Iím looking for a good AT tire that has some life in the tread.

If nothing else, Iíll be the test dummy in a few months and let yíall know how they work...in Texas...no snow

Ok guys. I pulled the trigger and bought some of the new AT KO2 DT tires. 50k warranty and a pretty good payload upgrade over my stock E rated tires. Went 275/70/18 since I canít level my truck (tow a pretty heavy fifth wheel)

Initial report is they ride nice. Donít feel too soft like new tires usually do (squirmy)...good sign that the tread really is harder compound on these.

Also, -4 highway MPG, but that was expected because they are a lot heavier than those stock 265 radials.

To let you know? They asked me if I wanted black or white lettering. I used to think they just put the whites on the inside of you wanted black, but there seems to be two item numbers for them, so I think they make both....
