I just ordered a set of the Karoo 3's. The Continental TKC80 reviews said the rear only lasts about 2000 miles. The Michelin Wild tires are supposedly great off-road, but are noisy and not as stable on pavement. Being that this trip is mostly going to be pavement, and the Karoo's are great on pavement and good for everything except mud, I went with them. They are a lot more expensive than the other tires, though.

If you want to try to mount them yourself we can set a day for you to come over.

Sure. They aren't supposed to arrive until late next week, so it will be after that.
