What kind of differences have you found? And did you get the chance to run the Patagonias in the wet or mud at all?

I'm shopping for a 38-39, no wider than 13.5, for a 17" rim. I can't fit a true 40. I think my options are the Patagonia or the KM3.

Edit: I guess the Kanati in a 39 would work... But I'm wary of E-rated. My rig is light-ish.

Ran some 40" black labels in Johnson Valley when it was raining... very surprised on how well they worked. The Pats are one of the taller tires on the market right now. The BFGs I'm sure are great, but the 39s will be tough to find.

Interesting. For the price, 5 of the 38x13.5r17s would be fun to try. Some friends in Eastern OR are running them in the snow with good results... The only unknown so far is on snotty/slick trails.

At the time I wish they had a Black Label 38" tire. I believe there was some talk on their facebook group about doing a small run of them. The 40" tire is very tall... but I'm getting use to it

Fred ran a set of Milestar 40"s on a recent DED. They seemed to do really well.

Aren't these non-DOT tires and not legal for road use... ?

Yeah sorry these don't qualify. I only read half the title. However they should have decent road manners.

Don't fear E's on a light rig. It's worth it for the added sidewall protection. If you gotta run 25psi on the highway, that's fine. It's not gonna hurt anything.

I plan to run the Milestar in a 4D once I sell off my beloved 37 PBRR's..... I hope to run the black label grippy version but its hard to absorb the extra cost. Non-grippy are $325 at discount (not sure if they can get the grippy version) and the grippy's are $450 (shipped) from Northridge4x4.com. I would be buying 5 tires so that's a big hit.

I am down for mods right now but hope to be back up and getting em dirty by the end of March but will prolly still be on my 37's due to budget constraints.

I read that a Milestar equipped rig finished 5th in the EMC at KOH. Any other post-KOH updates?

You heard correctly. Mike Johnson was racing with Milestar Rep Martin:

I've got nothing bad to say about the Milestar Patagonia. We pushed them harder than I've ever pushed a tire. Sidewalls are strong and traction was great. We crossed the line 5th overall. Between the 3 cars in front of us at the finish on Nitto's. They had 4 flat Nitto's coming across the stage.

Congrats on the successful race guys.... This is good to hear/read about my next tire....

How was the grip in the rocks with the "non-grippy" (non-black label) compound tire?

For those who may be interested or not. Finally got my Kanati MudHogs in 39X12.50R17 under the truck. Hopefully some test drives within a couple of weeks.

Interested in seeing what you think of them, I've been eyeballing the 37s.

Both the tire shop that mounted them and the fab shop working with me on my truck were both very impressed with the tires looks, balancing and lightweight(~80# on stock SD wheels). Test drive results will be posted ASAP!

Do they measure a true 39? And did you weigh one?

According to my bathroom scale they are dead at 102# mounted on stock 17"X 7.5" SD alloys as pictured.

Measure at 38.75" tall and 11.75" wide off the truck with 65PSI in them. Also tread width is right at 10.5" which to me is great! I love how this thing turned out being only about 8" wider that my stock Ranger on 33X10.50X15's.

Maybe someone else can chime in with a weight for a bare tire.

At 65 psi they’re going to be bald in the middle with 100% tread on the outer lugs.

That's what the tire shop put in them because that's what they called for on the sidewall. I have left them at that for setup. When I get the truck back driving I will then adjust pressure to where it's needed.

I ran my General Grabber Red Letters at 20PSI front and 15-20 rear depending on load and never had an issue. I'm sure with these being E-rated they will be that low too.

To follow up this, it's took longer than I wanted to get this thing on the road but initial test and tune took place this weekend and I and extremely impressed! 25PSI F/ 20PSI R they worked awesome on street, rocks, mud and gravel road Shop owner was in his Juggy on 40" Nitto Mud Grapplers and I followed him everywhere with no issues!
