Kojaks are nice and wide and actually very light for some fast road riding and virtually silent for road use. I have them on my folding bikes. But for my Mtn bike i used these:
Fat Frank HS 375 | Schwalbe North America
2.35" wide and in brown, they look oh so nice too! lock up your shocks and ride them around 35psi and they seemed to float over alot of manhole covers with you barely feeling anything.
I did a 153km one day tour on them to another town and they just felt great on the rolling resistance.
I used them in a indoor bike park also and aired them out to 25psi and i was able to float over these fist sized rock garden obstacles with ease. just whatever you do don't get the creme colour because they get dirty fast and it will show and look ugly.
But since it looks like you already bought the kojaks try them out for a bit then just watch out on gravel trails because when i had my kojaks on the other bike taking turns while going anywhere around 25km/h and you will probably slide out. You'll have to use alot care and make wide turns if you are going at speed on gravel.
