    But maybe its just because the ride 90% of there time on some rocky terrain ... Would be different in mud.

    I was gonna post pics of the self-proclaimed thot in various poses and made up nonsense shots but I started to gag looking at some of them.
    So, nope, not gonna do it.

    To answer the question, hell no. Maybe in their own minds I'm sure they are the baddest wheelers on Instagram

    If I look into the thread pattern I cant imagine that the work in mud?

    I ran a trail with them in Montana on their badge of honor tour. The trail we did was pretty slick with mud and they were struggling, they still got through all the obstacles but the 6.4 hemi and wheel speed helped them out. The guys on nittos and Cooper's didn't have as much trouble as they did. If you take 4 attempts at an obstacle and make it on the 4th which one do you think makes the video? While I don't have any stake in praising or bashing the milestar tires my Cooper's and others that were running Cooper's and Nittos didn't have to work as hard as they did in some places.

    Hey, thank you. I got it. So, I first was a little sad that we cant get the Milestar in Europe. But after all that was written in this thread I will not care anymore about the Milestar M/T. I will stick to my Federal Couragia M/T and Maxxis Trepador.

    Thank you all Guys!

    I think you'll be happier without them. My whole point for starting this thread was because of all the internet hype I'd been seeing in regards to Milestar Patagonia tires. You can make any tire look good out in a place like Moab or Sand Hollow but being that Patagonia's are "mud terrain" tires, I was expecting them to do well in muddy conditions. I simply couldn't make any of this shit up and if you watched the videos of us in New England, you'll be able to see for yourself just how poorly they did.

    Hi,

    i'm really thankfully you start that thread. For me, who never been in the Moab, Rubicon Trail, or in the rest of the USA there Videos make the tire look pretty good. Also many Youtuber like Trail Recon, Matts Offroad Recovery ... now use this tire. Nearly in every video you see some rigs with those tires. From my point of view it look like that this must be a great tire because "everyone" have them.

    I'm not the only one in Germany who thought this. A few guys in my Jeep-Club also wanted this tire so we started to look what it will cost to get a few sets of them to Germany via a container. But for now I think we will not do this.

    Unfortunately, that's the power of the internet and social media. Milestar had been giving Patagonia tires to "influencers" to help promote them on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and the like and clearly, it's worked to get guys like you wanting them. I am NOT an influencer and can only share what I have seen.

    Yeah I didn't know that tires are given in US to Youtuber. Even if you are do some competition offroad stuff here you have to buy everything yourself So now the picture of the US Jeep Youtuber is completed. I always wondered myself were they have the money to buy all that stuff .. and than going to buy a 2500 RAM.

    So, Eddie, do you also get stuff sponsored because you have a big Chanel and a much bigger forum?

    There is a new fad where people get a lot of Instagram or Twitter or whatever followers somehow (usually due to looks not knowledge) and the leverage those followers for free shit. And sex sells, people know it, that is how most influencers operate. I don't think it's just a US fad either. There are hotel/resort influencers, food influencers, god knows what all there is 'influencers' for. I also don't find any value in most of the jeep Influencer's stuff that I've seen. There is no good information, thoughts, reflections on failures, etc. No historical information. Fake people with fake smiles selling fake shit.

    Eddie and Cindy provide a WEALTH of offroading knowledge. They do it without selling sex. Eddie seems to be a huge history buff and provides great info on their stop offs. And he tends to evaluate and be honest when he or someone else breaks... He seems to call it like he sees it. He is also very open about which advertisers on here sponsor him. And when he turns down sponsors to try other things.

    So while Eddie and Cindy may be 'Influencers' and get free stuff. They aren't the dredges of society that make that culture look vapid and vacuous. Just my 2 cents though. Cheers.

    Edit: I've been a WAL member about a year. I've followed and learned a LOT from the active members on here. Don't feel like you get that value from any other 'Influencer' in this space right now.

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.
