Was watching Lite Brite's review on these tires here and they seem interesting. Anyone else running them and have good luck with handling for daily driving?
I’m a HUGE Nitto fan and always will be but I’m really liking the 38” true size vs the 37 that is actually a 35.5”. I’m not a huge fan of the way the milestar looks but I’m thinking I might pull the trigger on a set from Discount tire. Black Friday is coming... my issue is I won’t run a spare and feel comfortable doing that with Nitto but I’ll have to gain Milestar’s trust. (I have friends I wheel with that carry a spare). The only reason I’m struggling is I wonder how many honest reviews there are out there. Most are from people running a donated please review set. I’m wanting a I bought them and love or hate them. I’ve ne we had to balance a 37 or 40 from Nitto since I’ve ran them. Even at 90 mph down the highway on my JKs.
This is not true of all brands. If you check a site like tirebuyer.com, you can get the specs on each and every tire/size, and it says what the actual diameter is. Now, whether this is accurate or fake, I don't know, but this is at least something to go on if you need to get more exact.... I’m really liking the 38” true size vs the 37 that is actually a 35.5”.
Yeah I hear ya. Every tire wil have a flat and everyone will have different opinions on what they think is best. With me I’m just straight up honest. I love trying new products and seeing what’s out there. I also love using what I know works. I will tell you what sucks even after I bought it. I’m honestly wanting to try them just to give a “ I bought these tires” honest opinion. They will either prove themselves great or be something I can recommend on passing. I have high standards coming from years of running nittos and never having a flat. The milestar price point is sweet though. I’m scared to run 40’s on the JL factory axles and the UDs aren’t available through the dealer (mopar performance) yet and the Nitto 37s just aren’t big enough coming from a JK on 40s. But I’m also hearing rumors of the Nitto 42 hitting 2019... oh the endless possibilitiesThat’s my concern as well. All the reviews from people that are getting freebies are a great marketing ploy, and very biased.
I’ve watched videos of people who run them and they praise how sticky they are and how great they are doing at mid single digit psi while spinning the bejesus out of them and leaving half of the tire behind in the form of chunked rubber and powder.
I’ve ran mtr’s, mtz’s, and a handful of interco tires on trail rigs and have never had to do a damn smoke show to get the tire to work. I ran a set of mtz’s for 8 years on a trail rig, sold it a few years ago, and they are still on there today. They probably have 10K miles on them now and at least 8 years of wheeling all of northern California’s trails.
Oh I hear ya, yes there are others out there but none that I haven’t tried or a price point that is spot that’s worth the savings to try. What brands were you thinking? Nittos 37 claims to be 36. High something but it’s betweem a 35.5”-35.75”. I’m hearing the milestars are running about 37.25”. Every inch counts when you’re kissing rocks on the bellyThis is not true of all brands. If you check a site like tirebuyer.com, you can get the specs on each and every tire/size, and it says what the actual diameter is.
