Anyone done it that can offer some advice?
One thing to consider - you'll probably be looking at two sets of TKC's for that kind of mileage, whereas a single set of distansia's should make the whole trip. FWIW I've slid around the Dalton with nothing better than a set of bald Metzeler Marathons on the 950 - it wasn't too bad.
