Yup, running the Patagonia M/Ts. Im a big fan of them and had them about 5500 miles now, it's my DD and my weekend warrior.How are you liking the Milestars, are they the PATAGONIA M/T line? I was thinking about putting
295 /70 R17 on my stock rims (the machined painted black ones, if that matters)
I ran stock Rubicon rims on 37’s with a 2 inch lift on mine for the last 3 years and was extremely happy. However, today I am having the Mopar beadlocks installed (full true beadlock 8.5”) today. Only reason I want to be able to air down to low psi (5-9 psi) and I really like the look.The Mopar Bead-Lock-Capable wheels are the only other ones that I've considered. They're 8", not 8.5" though.
Hard to drop $2,000 when I do like the Rubicon wheels, though.
Wow, thank you for the summarized reviewed. Glad to hear they're working out on the rocks. Lite Bright uses them on all their vehicles. Good to know it's not just YouTube channel hype. I think you may get more miles out of them too, as all they do is travel, tow, and wheel, and they were getting a little over 30k.Yup, running the Patagonia M/Ts.

Offraod they stick like glue to the rocks we have out here in AZ, I'm keeping traction on steep climbs that some of my group were spinning on with other tires so they've been at least as good as the Toyo and Nittos they've been running. I typically run them about 12 psi with the stock rims.
On road they've also been good once I dialed in the pressure a bit. I'm used to running A/Ts and M/Ts at 30 psi on road but someone on this board, can't remember who, suggested running these at ~35 psi as they're more stable up on the crown and that's been much nicer. Even tread life has been decent, just got them rotated and based on what discount measured them at, I'm expecting 30k-35k out of them.
Good value for the money for the money I'm thinking so far.
I've got 315 KO2's that have the same exact dimensions as the 35x12.5x17. The center of the tread wears a little more, but it is still on pace for 60-70k miles with a 5 tire rotation. When I run them 30psi cold, they wear a little more evenly. But outside of that, no issue at all. I aired down to 15psi in Moab last week and the traction was amazing. I'm certain I could have aired down more, but it wasn't necessary. I've had no issues with seating.I have a question for people who have 35x12.5 tires on their stock wheels. Have you seen any issues at all? Tires not seated properly? Uneven wear?
Some shops refuse to mount tires this wide on wheels that narrow.
I know there are people who have narrow 35 tires on the stock rims. This question is not for you.
