 I just fitted a set of Karoo 3's yesterday...
Not sure if i heard correctly, but Patty from Trac Mac said i'm lucky, last set they had and i think the supplier might be out of stock.

I paid R3780, fitted/ballanced...

Bmw qouted me R4200...

Tested the Karoo 3's today on some dirt roads, ran them @ 2.8 rear and 2.5 front.
Had a really really bad corrugated stretch almost shook my windscreen off, stopped, lowerd the screen all  the way and lowerd pressures to 2.0 front and back.  This made a huge improvement!!

Is it safe to run at these pressures on dirt? speed not exceeding 120 km/h and no pillion/luggage?

Tyre's also feeling good for short tar stint's to the next gravel.

Really impressed by the braking ability and confidence/feel...

3 of our group who did a 9000km trip earlier this year through 6 countries, ran the karoo 3's
The bulk of the trip was tar, and they all got back on the original tyres with a few km
to spare. Did very well in the "dirt" through western Tanzania

I rum 3 rear and 2.5 front in tar and dirt. Works for me.

PS: when off tar I always drop the screen.

Hi Honne

Ek het my Lc nou n week is dit waar dat daar nog net TKC en die karoo opsies is vir die LC.

As jy meer as net teer wil ry, ja dan kies jy tussen Karoo 3 en TKC 80. Beide goeie opsies vir greep en beide gee maar min kilos op die agterwiel. Ek kry maksimum 5000km op my agterwiel maar ek dink 7000km is moontlik.

Die ander opsies soos Anakee 3, Tourance Next, Conti Trail Attack ens het almal 'n 90/10 voorkeur vir teer. As jy natuurlik iemand is wat rustig op mooi grondpaaie toer sal hulle werk. Verlaag net die banddruk om die greep te verbeter. Uit die drie verkies ek die Conti Trail Attack met die Anakee 3 in sterk tweede plek en die Tourance Next heel laaste.

As jy meer grond as teer ry is die TKC dalk die beter opsie met 'n meer grond georiŽnteerde loopvlak.

Ek persoonlik verkies die Karoo 3, jy sal egter nie fout maak met enige van die twee nie, beide is goeie bande :thumleft:

Hi,

Are the above tyres still all that is  currently available for the LC? Does anyone have some further info on the progress of Mitas E07 for the LC?

Thanks in advance for the information.
