    Well I have 5 lightly used 35x12.50R15 Patagonia MTs sitting next to my garage that will be hitting Craigslist soon. If you'd like to take a chance on them, I'd be motivated to sell them.

    we just put these in 35" flavor on my wife's JKU. nice on the road so far, but haven't had them in the dirt yet. I feel like your review of them off road is what my impression of them will be just based on their design. I see a lot of the youtube crowd has them and I don't see a lot of crazy grip coming from them off road. I guess I'll have to form my own opinion when I finally get to wheel the Jeep.

    Thank you Brian. Especially with the comment of traction, I am curious to put them to use.

    Now to measure backspacing of existing wheels and get a five set of replacements. I'm toying with mounting myself (I dismounted / re-mounted my set of four when I tried the plastic BB balance method). I'd take'm to my local tire shop for balance. I'll do one and will see how difficult it is.

    On the way home I headed north via the easterly route (Peyton, Kiowa, Bennett, Ault). It was interesting having clear sky (and fun military jets to watch!) down south and then rolling under the Cameron Peak smoke plume - to then pop out (barely) from under it a bit north of Greeley. The plume was well over 50 miles wide. The forest is rejuvenating itself.

    Brian I'm very interested in the experience you have with the KM3s. I think I'm going to save my pennies and get a set in the spring, granted mine will be 30x9.5r15

    I'm interested as well! Only got about 10 miles on them at the moment but I'll let you know how they do.

    I have KM3’s on my Jeep and my Powerwagon! They are awesome tires for off-roading - I do a trail here and there and they’ve been great.

    "My impressions off-road are negative"

    I have had quite the opposite impressions with my Patagonia MTs in the rocks. I was a long time BFG guy and have been running 35x12.5R15 earlier KOs and KM2s for at least 10 years on my LJ. 2 years ago I got the itch to move up to 40's. I did a lot of research and narrowed the choices down to ProComp Xtreme M/T2 @$400 or Patagonia MT @$300 (Discount Tire price matched a Walmart special at that time). I ended up going with 40x13.5R17 Patagonias, $400 cost savings and a little bit of weight savings (Patagonia 88 lbs. vs. ProComp 91 lbs.). I agree with Brian on road manners and quite. These are floatation tires and they work great in sand and snow when aired way down (4psi-5psi). I've been twice to Moab and twice to Rubicon and I seem to have a lot more traction than I did with the BFGs (8psi-9psi). Granted this is not an apples to apples comparison as the BFGs were 35's on 15x10 non-beadlocks and the Patagonias are 40's on 17x9 beadlocks. Maybe it's just the extra ground clearance that I'm noticing, but so far they go where I point them. By far the best traction tires I have had were a set of 37x14.00-15 SuperSwamper IROK bias ply on 15x10 steelies, but they only lasted about 1.5 seasons. They wore out faster than pencil erasers. Funny how you can get so much difference one rig over the other, but not surprising so get whatever works for you.
