    For a tire that's supposed to be a "mud terrain", those Milestar Patagonia's simply sucked! Synergy was running Nitto Ridge Grapplers, an all terrain and with less than 50% tread left and they still hooked up a hell of a lot better than those china tires. It really does amaze me just how many of those things they've been able to sell and all because of internet "influencers" pimping them out.

    You can almost see that the Patagonias suck in muddy conditions.
    Any way, cool video!

    There's no almost about it. You can clearly see that they DO suck in these conditions.

    Ok maybe I expressed my thoughts not precise enough. I meant you can see it by just looking at the tread design, too closed up and this middle stripe has almost no gap in it which could bog through mud or crawl onto rocks or roots. More open tread is clearly more likely to grab bumps. But its just amazing how freaking well these huge long wheelbased things do even on big boulder steps
