With picking up my new Range Rover L322 as part of the deal I got no wheels with it.

Picked up a set of Range Rover sport supercharged 20” wheels for super cheap so 9.5j wide running 275 tyres.

My previous l322 has 275/65r20 tyres which are great but after having a burst airbag and having to get recovered home on a truck I figure the next ones shall be smaller.

Stock is 255/50 or people running 275/45 to be close but on the wider wheels.

However I have seen lots of posts of people running 275/55 ko2’s which look really nice and aggressive while being a nice size and not requiring the 2” lift.

Does anyone have experience in running these tyres?
Alternatively does anyone have a recommendation for something in 275/45,50,55 that’s similar?

KO2s seem to be the gold standard pretty much. Probably 75% of cars/trucks I see here in canada with all terrain tyres (and that's a lot) seem to be running KO2s. I don't think you can go wrong.

They are great tyres and seem to last longer than you think they should. They are poor in the wet on road though

What’s it being used for? They’re compromised both on and off road.

Indeed. Some recent spirited braking caused them to let go in the wet. At least the ABS got a workout. smile

I got a set of 265 70 17 fitted to my Hilux the other day after getting caught out a couple of times by the worn factory fit Bridgestone Duellers.

First impressions - quiet and smooth on road even at 80+ and will now go places in 2wd that it struggled to go in 4wd with the old tyres. There is a reasonable amount of snow around at the moment but I couldn't find anything particularly deep - a short stretch of 2ft drifts didn't cause any issues though.

Hopefully they last as well as the set I had on my Land Cruiser - 100k miles and still OK!

I had KO2s on my Shogun Commercial. Fine onroad, a bit noisy, but really fantastic off-road.

I bought a set of BFG KO2's from 4wheelonline last month and so far, I like them. Traction and handling are good. They ride a little rough, but relatively quiet on the highway. I can't wait to try them off the road.
