    Well I can tell you the Cooper AT3 XLT are infinitely better on road than the KO2s.

    The thing about putting new, different brand / type of tires on is that you’re directly comparing worn, sometimes shagged, old tires with new tires. A lot of times the new tire, regardless of brand is going to subjectively “feel” better.

    Maybe the Cooper is better than the stock KO2, maybe it isn’t. Without some context and data, it’s hard to give subjective evaluations credibility. Maybe you’ve done this, but just the assertion ‘brand x is better’ isn’t really much to go on.

    I had the KO2s since new for 17k miles or so. They sucked from new.

    2 H unless it's wet or sandy or when I'm towing on twisty roads.

    I should try 4A more often to enjoy the power when not going in a straight line.

    I was going to ask about tire wear, and this answers my question nicely. Like others, I run 2H normally, 4A with weather...but will give 4A normally a try to see what I think.

    How is MPG effected?

    I would say since the rear gets all the power, until the system detects slippage at the rear and diverts power to the front wheels as needed. You shouldn’t see significant to much loss in mpg. Unless your constantly losing traction.

    Only run 4A when it's raining, which is a rare occasion here in Las Vegas

    You should never run 4H or 4L on pavement... 4A is what you want.
