    I've never been to Moab and never run 'stickies' and I'm still quite amazed how well the Jeep platform performs with a good set of 35s or even 33s. I've gone places I never would have imagined with just that. Sorry I don't have any cool social media pics handy to prove it.

    And where is this so called person who seemed to like them? The same guy that just said others he’s wheeled with liked them and said he wouldn’t buy them again. The only tire he liked less was the Goodyear (shocker there)
    I bought a set of BFG KO2s 12.50x17 for my Gladiator yesterday from Discount Tire. I’m not sold on the Milestar enough for my daily driver. I will probably end up with the BFG Krawlers on my Method beadlocks before EJS next year. I have a spare set of wheels that I am going to mount my 37” Mickey Thompson MTZs on for street use. I know that the Krawlers are proven.

    Sounds to me like you have more tires than you know what to do with if you have such great quality tires such as those Mickey Thompson’s and BFG krawlers, why the hell would you even think about shitty milestar tires that have such mixed reviews?

    If you’re in Colorado Moab is pretty close. You should make the trip, Moab is a lot of fun and you will be amazed on how steep you can climb on the slick rock.
    I have always wanted to go to the Ouray area and try some trails there, maybe this summer.

    I don’t have the Krawlers yet. Was just considering the Milestar’s but will probably go with the BFG’s instead.

    I can say on my 37” Coopers and Nittos I have ran 11-12 PSI and never had a bead issue without beadlocks. And the tires are completely different at 11 psi than they are at 15. Id give that a try before investing in stickies. And I’d also purchase beadlocks and run current tires at 8-10psi before running stickies as you’d want beadlocks with those anyway.

    From what I have seen of them in person they seem like they are complete trash. Seems like the sidewalls are really thin and slit really easily and they can’t grab traction on any surface other than pavement. Couldn’t give me free sets of them for life, I wouldn’t want them.

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.
