My KM2s are still going strong with over half tread after 20-25k miles. Oh and I'm running 8" wide wheels FWIW.

I run my 265/75/16 KM's (E) at 40 front, 38 rear and it seems to do well.

Depends on weight of truck. Mines heavy and running 40/38. Chalk test is key.

Air up to 50psi. Put chalk lines on tires going across not around. Deflate both front tires in 2psi increments equally until tires have full contact with road.

Google tire chalk psi and better explanations will be found.

100 -200 yards....depends on the chalk and tires.

I got lucky when I got mine and used a brand new concrete parking lot to do them. I didn't even have to chalk. I just drove with them at 50psi and deflated until the entire tire was covered in concrete dust and once it was covered I let another 2psi out.

I actually have a friend that owned a crime scene clean up company. He just closed it to persue his hobby as a career, but I bet he could get me some good stuff
