2500-3000 out of a rear and double that for the front. I ride 50/50 road and off. If you need mileage I'd recommend the K60 Scouts. You'll get at least double the mileage but less traction off-road.

They both have vibration and noise at different speeds. It is most noticeable at slow speeds and under braking. The K60 was buzzier in my opinion (Probably because of the hard compound) The TKCs...

I'm not sure there is any advantage mixing these two tires. For off-road you'd want a TKC on the rear for added traction. I guess having a K60 in front would provide long tread life, but one front...
