MOAB, Utah — Tireco Inc.'s Milestar brand tires has reached an agreement to support modified Jeeps for rental and off-roading tours supplied by Twisted Jeeps Rentals of Moab, Utah.
According to Milestar, the agreement includes supporting the fleet of Twisted Jeeps Wrangler Rubicons with Milestar's Patagonia M/T tires, in sizes LT315/70R17 and 37X12.5R17LT, as well as Sendel wheels. The tours go through the red-rock landscapes of Moab and the Colorado River.
The tires provide strength and impact protection, Milestar said, and the stone ejectors prevent stone retention and drilling.
Nicholas Oldroyd, owner of Twisted Jeep Rentals, said his company has been testing the Patagonia M/T's for more than a year.
"They have proven to be one of the most durable tires we have ever used on our fleet," he said. "They also have great road manners, and they are incredibly quiet on the street."
Andrew Hoit, Tireco's vice president of sales and marketing, said Twisted Jeeps has a wealth of off-road experience, "guiding and mentoring new off road enthusiasts," and that the company "can educate consumers on the importance of great off road tire performance during mild to extreme conditions."
