There are some reviews out there comparing the M/T Baja Boss A/T to the Falken WP AT3W. I do like the looks of the M/Ts, but the reviews pretty heavily favor the Wildpeaks for my use. It's still nice that there's another option, though.

At this point, I think it'll come down to looks & price between the Wildpeaks & Rubitreks.

AT3W is a good tire; I had an E-load in it for about 30K miles on my 2016 4Runner before I traded for my Pro. Used them for some wheeling including White Rim Road in Moab and also did a lot of highway and a bit of snow driving with them. Only complaint was they always seemed to be slightly out of balance (and that was a common complaint back then; it seems like Falken may have improved on this). Back when I bought them (~2017) they were a freaking steal; I think I got my E-rated for only $170 a tire, and I think P-metrics then were about $145. Falken still is priced pretty aggressively but not the value leader they once were.

I've honestly yet to see that many reviews on the M/T but overall initial feedback seems positive.

I went through the same thought process you are going though. I ended up with the M/T baja a/t and so far I am liking them. I was torn between the KO2, Falkens, and Baja. After checking the weights, reviews, and my own experience with KO2 I went with the Baja a/t.

So far I've had the XL rated for my daily driver and some highway driving (about 600 miles) and love them. Have driven in light snow, some wet roads and one mild trail that I did almost completely in 2 wheel drive.

I put KO2s C-rated on my 2018 Offroad in stock size. I’ve got over 71,000 miles on them and I get 19 MPG in town/highway driving. I’m about to put another hunting trip on them(over 3000 miles round trip). I’ll be going back with another set of KO2s, if these ever wear out.

Very debatable, especially since there's a thread about offroading on non-LT's (P-metrics) on this forum, with the vast majority of those that do it stating they've never popped one.

I'm putting Wildpeak AT3W's on in a month. Stock size, P-metric (Non-LT). Rated for a higher load capacity than LT BFG KO2's in Load Range C.

Agreed. I've been into 4 wheeling for 15 years now and myself and friends have run numerous C-load or P metric tires over the years. Flats have never been an issue. This is from some pretty hardcore rock crawling in the northeast, to fire roads, to sand. If you want the added security then fine, but I don't feel it's as big of an issue as some make it out to be here. I've said it a few times, but drivability of the lighter tire outweighs the potential strength for me.

The Falken Wildpeak AT3W look great amd perform well on and off road.
Lots of people like the Nitto Ridge Grapplers also.
Do some searching- tons of info online as well as reviews here Best Off Road Tires: Top 10 Options For SUV, Truck.... Good luck.

I would stay away from the Nitto’s. After they ware down about half way they start to slide in the rain. This is what happened to me.

I'd have to look around for a thread, but I also remember hearing they are very prone to chunking and losing tread if actually used offroad in rocks. It seemed the verdict was they were a good mall crawler tire, but not necessarily a good offroad tire.

Surprising also given the fact that I've had pretty good experience with Nitto tires before (had Trail Grapplers and then Exo Grapplers on my Jeep plus have Nomad's on my Rover currently).
