In regards to wet braking on tarmac, I feel that I've been able to compare this fairly well as we've had a ton of rain since I have had the car with plenty sitting on the road surface around my local area. I honestly cannot feel any difference between the Duelers and the K02's. Everything is behaving as exactly as expected.

Things may change as I put more miles on, but I am feeling pleased with them so far.[/quote]


Thanks jimnyfox - that's very, very helpful!

Would be interested in your experience if and when you hit standing water at speed - does your Jimny stay stable etc. (I mention this after writing-off a Subaru some years ago doing the same.)

But this sounds good.

Look forward to future updates.

Note that I opted for the 97 load rating tyres instead of the 100 load rating

Any chance of a pic of the tyre showing the ratings? I thought the k02s were all 100/97 meaning single/dual axle. Thanks!

Will this do? (Not sure if the resolution will be high enough)

thanks - yes it's too low res for me to read. Does it still say 100/97 on the sidewall? cheers

That's 100 load rating then (the 97 refers to dual axle). Bummer because it would be great if someone made 215 ATs in 96 or 97.

Yes. It is the same tyre.

Somewhere above I showed interest in a Michelin tyre with a T speed rating. Higher speed ratings are generally attained by making the side walls stiffer. All other things being equal I would go for the lowest load capacity and lowest speed rating (while keeping it road legal) and lowest weight in a 215 - given how light the Jimny is, and the lack of power I think this will benefit on road and off road as long as you're not driving on flint, or trying to solo across the Australian outback.

I'm with you there cyberdriver. I've been looking for any 96-97 load rated 215/75R15 tyres on the market in the UK - but not come up with anything yet.

100 rated tyres are obviously OK, but a slightly lower rating would be even better for on road. Bosanek's experience with - admittedly 108 rated tyres, sticks in my mind.

Just for info: In the UK, 4x4 Tyres has K02s in 97 load rating

This is where I bought mine from and as it turns out, they are not 97 load rated. They are 100/97 as mentioned above.

Just to add, I took part in the 'Kielder Safari' over the weekend, a nice mix of gravel, mud and rocky tracks. They were absolutely excellent. Including on the 4 hour motorway drive up there! So far so good and I would be happy to recommend them to others considering them.
