Milestar Patagonia MT tires

So the JK has needed tires since I got it. It came with 37 Mickey Thompson ATZ. I hated them.

I wanted 40s but there is no way they would fit without major overhaul on everything. So I’ve been eyeing the 38” pitbull maddog radials. Every time they go on sale they aren’t in stock.

I ALMOST bought the 39 km3 but wasn’t sure they would fit.

I found these milestar and thought they were ugly. But then I saw the price and had second thoughts.

Walmart has them for 250 each. I called Discount and they matched the price so I ordered them up!

They are a full 2” taller than my 37s were. The tread is better looking in person for sure and I’m surprised with all the siping.

They are dead silent on the road. Haven’t wheeled them yet so I will report.

Edit..these are 38/13.5/17

One of the YouTuber richwheeler types (I mean, who brings a gourmet chef on an overland expedition?) runs these on a Gladiator.
The 35x12.50R15 is on the shortlist of options for my Courier.

Been watching a youtube channel for a tow company out of Hurricane, he runs a set on his offroad recovery Cherokee. The channel's fun to watch for the scenery and pulling tourists out of places they shouldn't have taken a rental.

Beautiful scenery but that guy's techniques range from questionable to downright dangerous. Gunning it to yank a car out with a snatch strap just looped over the ball sort of stuff.

Yea there are a lot of I wouldn't do it that way moments. I watched the one where he showed how the Jeep is set up and I'm amazed he isn't towing the Jeep out half the time.

Really surprised how good they are on the road. Jeep used to be sketchy at 70mph. Just was running 80 and it felt great!

Took very little weight to balance also

I love that channel! So enjoyable to watch!

I may get crap for this, but I hate it when the web wheelers are giving the professionals a hard time. I deal with this every day at work. I work in the field going in pipes, fixing electrical issues, doing jobs while dangling off ropes, climbing towers, etc. I have about 15 years experience doing things and doing them safely and efficiently. However, once the desk jockey engineers/wanna be engineers show up on the jobsite it seems they always have a better, safer, more efficient way of doing things. They've never done the job that I've done hundreds of times, trying new techniques and learning each time along the way, but they have stood around a white board with a bunch of other "smrt" people discussing the job and by golly they know the best way to do it.

Bottom line is, just because there is a guy on youtube that cuts halfway through the shank a 1 7/8 ball and then slams into it with a non stretchy tow strap going 30 mph and manages to break it, doesn't mean that there is no safe way to recover using a ball hitch. If you aren't comfortable with a certain technique and don't think you can do it safely, I absolutely agree you should evaluate your options and find a way to do the job safely. But please don't critique the guy that has 100's of times more experience in the way he safely accomplishes the job. This goes for anything, not just off road recoveries.

It'll be good to have a review of these on RME, they seem to be a pretty popular option! When I bought the KM3's for my Gladiator, the salesman pushed me towards the Milestar Patagonia due to the price difference. I was tempted, but have a hard time getting anything other than BFG's.

I'm not gonna lie Greg, I've been a fan of BGF's for 25+ years and haven't had anything else on my Jeeps but this last go around I was waffling between the Nitto Ridge Grapplers and the KO2's but also looked at the Milestar Patagonia's due to the price difference and almost pulled the trigger on them but opted for the Nitto's instead.

I would like to see another review of the Patagonia's because what I've heard and read thus far is pretty good.

I haven't owned them personally, but I have several friends and family that do, and they are more than satisfied. I have been on the trails in Sand Hollow many times with people running the Pats, and they simply work. As with any tire, if you search the web long and hard enough, you'll find crap about every tire out there. This is one of the few tires I haven't heard anything bad about them. Especially in Utah terrain, more specifically in Sand Hollow. They hook up very well, not to mention having a tire in a 37, 38 and 40 is a big deal, being the most popular sizes in demand right now. They are also quiet on the highway.

That's good to hear Tim. Besides wanting the off-road traction and bite, I was also unwilling to settle for a noisy tire or one with poor on-highway manners. Good to hear they are quiet on pavement. My Ridge Grapplers are performing perfectly in all categories that I have thrown at the past 13k miles but good to hear the other tire that I was contemplating was equally reviewed.

No insult, but I'd just expect that a guy who does this professionally would use something that secured the strap, like a receiver shackle mount. It may take an extra three seconds to connect, but that would be less time than if the strap popped off the ball, and it would look more professional.

I have noticed he's moved to a pindle hitch in the back, but to be honest most of his jobs is someone stuck in the sand or snow and they just need a quick tug to get free. I'd love to see him wrap the cord over the receiver and then back to the ball just to cause discussion, the ball in this case would just be there to keep the strap from falling off and any pressure would be on the receiver hitch.
