how ironic this is mentioned; I have talked up my " light, tough & relatively affordable 37" wheel-tire" package since getting them just over a year or so ago and only after an extremely mud involved trip to Alabama a few months ago, I too noticed this same occurrence on my Strike5s and KO2s. I never had the issue with the STTs or Fun Country - which I attribute to them having a rim-rise /"bead protector" lip where the KO2s do not.
Anyway, same exact thing JKCTAZ and OP experience ...I had to get the wife and kids to stand on fully deflated tires so I could get in there with some interior trim tools made of plastic that cant break to get out pebbles, sticks, material and small grit. One good chunk of a root required skillful placement of the needle-nose to not gouge the alloy ( arg!) I was aired-down to around 8-10psi which is max I will go without beadlocks where normally I am at 10-14psi. The mud required less air but I was freaking thinking I had holes in my tires until it hit me to check the bead...I am getting beadlocks but it is gonna be a while ( next year when axles are upgraded) .
You say breaking bead and cleaning then resetting fixed it for good for you , JKCTAZ? If so, I will take the hi-lift to them and reset myself this weekend. I am only losing air on one but am kinda miffed this happens.
