If I had to guess is the only thing people complain about (they are great tires BTW) but they wear out fast due to the softer compound or the poor traction in rain/snow?
Are you saying the Baja are not that good in the rain? Was considering them after my K02”s. Living in south Florida, definitely need good traction in the rain.

I was referring to the Patagonia Milestars, I bought these specifically for snow rating and good traction in rain compared to MTs

Right there with ya. I'm a big mickey thompson fan (little did I know I was a few mins from HQ when I lived in Ohio). We currently have a truck with the atz p3 on them so we'll have a good test as to how they are but I'm leaning more towards the ATs as well next time around. Currently have the deegan mts

Its hard to take those measurements because everyone will run them at different pressures (30-40psi makes a pretty big difference in not only comfort but height and footprint) and everyone’s rigs are different weights so they are very subjective.

im out camping and don’t have a measuring tape so I will measure them on my rig when I get home in a few days and update you.

After a 4700 mile round trip on the Milestars I will be looking at these next.

I have 35" Mickey ATZ P3s ready to mount up, can't wait to ditch the Patagonias. The Milestars are ok for the price I paid (got the 295/70/17s for $129 each back in 2019 at Walmart.com) but are pretty poor in the wet & cold, don't wear well, I think 25k is all I'd get on them.

The Pats wear like a**. I'm so over them, ready for ANYTHING else.

You really do get what you pay for.

ouch yea 25k is nuts. I got my mickey deegan mt put on at 97k and have 148k on the ticker now with it being used 70road/30trail so I'm pretty pleased minus the loudness.

I waited about 2 months to get these due to manufacturing delays but I gotta say after driving them for about 2k miles I’m super happy with them. I went with the 37x12.5x17 tires on Teraflex Nomad wheels and I think it looks great (rash rings in the way because I already scratched them lol)

I went with these tires because I was a huge fan of KO2s, out here in the PNW we encounter snow and ice in the winter months off-roading so a 3 peak snow rated tire was very important to me (roads get closed to people with out proper tires or chains) I’ve had MT tires on snow and they just don’t perform well unfortunately.

The tires looks great, I get lots of compliments and most people are surprised to find out they are only a AT tire due to its aggressive look. The sidewalls are very strong aired down (had them down to about 13psi) and they seem to grab rocks very well compared to the stock KO2s. The side lugs are big and provided a good grip when aired down.

Road noise is not noticeable from the KO2s (which are pretty quiet), I performed a chalk test and they seem to do well on my JLUR at about 30-35psi (anything higher and the ride is a little rougher)

if you love KO2s because of their warranty, snow peak rating and road manners this might be the tire for you, also they are $25 cheaper per tire, be sure to ask @Discount Tire for the forum discount!

I will update my post with a long term review

I got the exact same tires but have them on KMC XD231 beadlocks. I have huge trouble having them balanced. What was your experience balancing these?

How much weight you ended up with being added and at how many places on the rim?

Yep, I really wanted a set of these, but no one has them. I had to "settle" for BFG KO2's in 37x12.5x17 Load Range C. Should be in within a week or so.
