Changing to a rear K60 was the first tire change I ever did myself. I was a sweaty mess afterwards, but it worked (Harbor Freight changer and their crappy bar, 140 -80-17 on a Wee strom).

Looks like Shaefer grade in Canyonlands NP. If you go through the main entry gate there, you do have to pay a fee, but You can get in via Potash Rd or the long way from Mineral Bottom.

Blockier tread = more noise. Not sure there is a way around that one.

I have a k60 on the rear of my '08 Wee. I like it better than the TKC80 it replaced. Much better tread life. Much better on asphalt and only a little worse on dirt (soft sand in particular).

I find all the waterproof "breathable" membranes to be bad for footwear. When warm, my feet sweat way faster than goretex's ability to "breath". So even though the membrane is passing moisture,...
