Just thought I'd share, I Finally got my Compos and 265/60r18 BFG KO's. Super glad I went this route, kept it simple, still feels like a luxury ride, and I can't wait to take it out next week. no rub and the spare fits. stoked.

G'day adclark,
Congrats on your choice of wheels & tires. Especially tire size. The 265/60's are a better option compared to 265/65's because it avoids ANY problems - rubbing & fitting inflated spare. The slightly lower profile has not
proved an issue for me in seriously rough terrain. I can air-down without problem, except I keep them a couple
of pounds higher than I would with 265/65's. Ride quality is excellent & noise is fine. Speedo/odo are still quite
accurate compared to OE wheels/tires. When time comes to replace my rubber I'll be staying with the BFG KO2's. They'll be my fourth set of BFG A/T's over two Discovery's since 1998.

G'day adclark; I run 40-42 psi for highway driving. My D4 with all the aftermarket gear fitted & two full tanks (192 liters) & two of us onboard with average baggage/gear etc ,is
at the max gross vehicle mass of 3240kgs, so tire pressures are very important to keep moving in very rough stuff.
I'm happy to air-down to mid-20's on rough gravel/dirt tracks when needed, but usually don't bother as the KO2's are very tough. It saves time using the compressor if only
driving a relatively short distance in the rough. With the 265/60's I'm happy to go down to
18-20psi for sand driving & 22-24 on very rocky terrain - better traction & easier on the tires. I've seen many tires off the rim at 14-16psi in sand or mud, especially when changing direction quickly, so I'm very wary of going below 18psi.
