Milestar Patagonia M/T VS Falken Wildpeak M/T

Hello Wrangler Forum, this is my first post! I am currently shopping for the best bang for your buck m/t. I have and daily a 2003 jeep tj with a 3.5 inch suspension lift. I am currently deciding between the two tires linked below. The Falken wildpeaks vs the milestars Patagonia. To my understanding their both made in the usa and their size dimensions are accurate(unlike my current tires, mudstar nakangs) Any input on these tires is much appreciated! and if you know of any tires that are better than these ive found for the price feel free to let me know.
Thanks! Alex

Check out the Mastercraft Courser MXT’s, Dick Cepek Extreme Country and Firestone MT2’s.
They might be a little bit more than the ones you mentioned, but all three I mentioned have good reviews.
I have the MXT’s and they’ve proven to be a very well built tire.

If you are trying to find a quality tire out of those two tires. Go with the new falken mt. The milestar is a tire that will not flex well

I don't know much about Milestar. Is that a Yokohama off-brand?

I do know that Falken is a Sumitomo brand, most are made in Thailand, and they are excellent offroad tires.

Milestar tires are made overseas. I just had a set of 38x13.50s mounted today. They took a lot of weight to balance, 12-13 oz each. They seem to run smooth and quiet on my short ride home.

FWIW, my local DT mentioned to me about chunking issues with the Falken and starred me away from them.

A wheeling buddy runs the Patagonia and has had no issues. He's running 37s.

I've had the Milestars on for 500-600 hundred miles.

I really like them. They ride smooth, quiet, and track straight on the road. Ride like an AT tire.

I have the 38x13.50r17. They measure 37 1/4 mounted under the jeep.

I won't get them offroad until later this month.

I've got about 4K and three trail rides on the Milestars (including one trip to Moab) but I think they are great tires so far, on and off-road.
