Thanks for the awesome and aptly named video.
I appreciate the personal observations.
Most likely, I’ll end up on these and am really looking forward to testing out their performance.
Thanks again.

Just called the local Discount Tire to order the Patagonia MT in 295/70-17. I’ve dealt with the same Ass’t Manager for more than 10 years, chasing him from store to store each time he transfers.
He seemed less than thrilled with my choice of the Patagonia MT saying that these were middle of the road at best. He recommended the Falken Wildpeak MT01 as an option. The Falken tires even sell for ~$10 per tire less…
Decisions, decisions…

Do what you feel is best of course.. I don't have any experience with the Mt01, so can't say one way or the other about it. I like the tread design on the Milestar a bit more than the MT01 but that means nothing.

Nothing at all wrong with those Falkens... If it makes you comfortable, go for it. I can tell you that the Patagonia's are a really nice tire for the $$$. Right now, Discount has the 35's at $196/ea and it's really pushing me to go get a set. Our rock climbers are beating the snot out of them and other than 1 sidewall puncture, they've been doing great.

add to cart hit send lol. I have added them and taken them out so many times. I am waiting for that super deal on the Nitto 35/11.5-17's so still agonizing over whether to hit send or not.

Nitto's are nice as well.. though the guy running then behind me on that muddy hill climb (video above) had to get winched. Lots of other factors came into play but sure felt good making it with the Milestars.

I just like the size of the 35/11.5-17's was that the size the guy had? if so can I get some photos? I like taller skinnier :) when it comes to tires. I just want to put them on a spare set of stock rims to trade back and forth

No clue on size just that they where Nitto's. frankly it was more luck than anything getting up the hill. also I don't like sliding backwards on hills so made full use of the skinny peddle.

Got my Patagonia's on and couldn't be happier so far. Impressed with the ride and how quiet they are for a mud terrain tire. Took a bit of weight to balance a couple of them, but I can always have a Road Force balance done if I need to later on.

Yeah, need to update sig and add a bunch to the build thread...

Just forest routes, no climbing yet. Dealing with a P06DD :pullinghair:

But so far, very impressed with this tire.

Thanks for the photos of the Patagonia tires. One of our employees does a lot of hardcore wheeling with them and loves the traction.

I'm looking for reviews/evaluations of Milestar Patagonia performance in rain and snow.

What say you who have them?

Any skidding, brake lockup, fishtailing, etc.?

Thanks. I'll look forward to your update on rain and snow performance on pavement.

I have a report about wet road performance under braking from an individual I trust that gives me pause. One of my concerns is that I am upgrading to a 16" Big Brake Kit with Black Magic pads which generally call for enthusiastic braking. If these tires slip and slide under heavy braking on wet roads I would sure like to know before I think about them any further.

I have had them at highway speeds 55-65mph in heavy rain.. no issues. No fishtailing when pulling out. As noted in the write up, there was a bit of side movement down a somewhat steep hill with S curves with in the rain with wet pavement. outside of that.. they have been fine in the rain. In the very little snow we have gotten here over the year plus I have had them, I have not had any issue, but it was not deep snow..

Had them out in Rain, Snow, Ice for a 400 mile circuit over 3 days. Cruising down the interstate in freezing rain and un-plowed secondary roads. They are better than my Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Came away pretty confident on how well they perform and comfortable with emergency brake situations. With that performance, I wonder if the compound is soft and I will wear them out sooner than others.
