This is what Costco told me but I can find little information online to confirm, any negative to buying the Costco version of this tire compared to an actual Defender?

I don't think it's the exact same. They are different.

I believe the op was not trying to offend and was only asking a question. I had read on another forum buyers asking the same question and were answered that they were the same. So it appears as the opportunity asked various opinions with these tires as the opportunity was asking. However it appears they are not the same as carmaster stated.
