    Mark MA Dakar MT

    Anyone ever heard of these or know anything about them?

    A 37x13.50R17 is $225 on Amazon Prime. At that price it just may be worth it to give them a shot.

    See Ave another couple hundred for a whole set and get a proven tire like a Cooper STT Pro

    They are as low as $265 at times, and you don't have to wonder if they are going to leave you stranded

    I agree with Jerry. Don’t cheap out in tires.

    Ya, I've thought of those as they are $260 on DT and Walmat.

    I've also thought the "don't cheap out on tires " but have noticed the Patagonias are pretty inexpensive as well and seem to be getting great reviews. Might these Mark MA be like that or like the Federal MT? Who knows? Price doesn't always mean a quality tire, just look at the Thornbirds!

    Thank you for your input.

    Maybe there are enough Patagonia’s out there now so you can get some reliable information about their quality.

    I had never heard of Mark Ma until your post. Maybe they are great tires, who knows. But for me personally, given what I demand of tires and the consequences of a bad choice, I’ll pay a bit more for something that’s been around for a while and has a solid reputation for quality.

    Everyone runs the federal MTs over here cause they are cheap but they are also noisy as hell and tend to chip a lot

    And they don't do well on wet surfaces. Then again, neither do my Toyos and these are chipping quite nicely as well.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
