Question Patriot Tires (no longer the DieselSellerz brand)

Anyone running the Patriot Tires (DieselSellerz brand) that the Diesel Brothers came out with? Looks like their prices aren't too bad. I am in the need and was gonna give them a go.

Let me hear your thoughts.

I'd be curious if they actually last and can keep traction, but I'm not holding my breathe on either until proven otherwise

maybe you have to spray ether on the tires for them to grab anything

Taiwan tires, using rubber from Malaysia and Thailand.

Just like all the other chitty brands.

Ya, they say they use a rubber compound close to big rig tires. So does that mean they have no sidewall give? No flex in the lugs? I have the Wrangler Duratracs now and in the rain, they are slick. Being snow rated, I hate to try them by just how they are in the rain.

I mostly street/highway with some off road. So I want miles not so much flex at 10psi. But don't want to be on a wagon wheel and no traction either.

to mean it means a HARD compound to get longevity... have you ever ridden on a true road tire? There is a reason they have air seats.

Oh boy.......


This hit a nerve with me......


First off,
Calling them "Patriot" tires when ALL of the materials and LABOR is from 3rd world countries puts a stop to me ever buying them!!

Second,
Will never give those guys a dime of money. Clearly they are playing to the redneck idiots that love rolling coal and driving pieces of chit around as cheaply as possible....Hence their "builds"

Third,
The design (from tread to the compounds) speaks highly of what they want, which is PROFIT!!!! Those will be the harshest riding, crappy-est wearing, traction loosing tires ever. In other words WASTE OF MONEY!!!!

Rant over.....for now......

lol. My truck and jeep have always sat on MT's. The Duratrac is the closest I got to a highway tire. If I go with 18's over 20's might ease up on the ride.

I have continental MPT81's on my rig, and let me tell you it aint a smooth ride.

But at 40k miles, they look 1/2 tread.

First, Agree, but most are, right? They may not be called Patriot tires, but made over seas.

Second, Agree, I don't roll coal, don't plan on it. And pretty much watch the show for ideas, to which I have gotten very few.

Third, Agree, and that's why I wanted to see if anyone took the bait and has them.
