Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

The annual industry party is tonight and we have meat!

We are looking forward to gathering together with other vendors for a relaxing dinner of pulled pork that we cooked thanks to the amazing pellet grills provided by Camp Chef! It's always a good time sharing a great dinner and playing some games of corn hole with our industry partners.






Here are some random photos taken today during set-up for Vendor Day.

Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

Last nights annual industry dinner was a huge hit with well over 100 vendors and media people attending!

Everybody had an awesome meal and a huge thanks to our guy Addam for getting up at 2 and 4 AM to tend to the 65 pounds of pulled pork - cooking them to perfection on the amazing Camp Chef pellet grills. Also shout out to Method Race wheels for providing refreshments and Moab Ice for letting us bring a trailer full of ice to the condos!

After getting their fill of pork and all the fixins, it was time to see who could toss the cornhole bags the best! What a blast talking to all the people that came to support our outstanding sport. Our friend Cowboy and his daughter are always a treat to talk to with all the stories they have from being local guides in Moab and on the Colorado river for some 30 plus years.

Off-road coverage and wheeling pics are coming soon as the guided trails kick into full swing!!! Today we will be riding on Fins-N-Things testing out some new 30x10.00R-15 Patagonia SXT Milestar tires mounted on New Raceline Trophy wheels!

Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

Yesterday's ride was on a trail called Fins-N-Things. This is one of the more popular trails because of the outstanding views of the snow topped LaSalle Mountains which are located to the east. This beautiful coral colored trail has many dinosaur type of "fins" to ride up and down. Some of the climbs and descents definitely command your full attention!

We rode in Eric's custom Polaris General 4 1000 testing out the new Patagonia SXT tires from Milestar in 30x10R-14 shod on all new Raceline Trophy wheels. What a great looking tire/wheel package!!!

Getting to the trail head our group is escorted by the local Moab Police department through town to Hell's Revenge where they let us continue on our own. The Patagonia SXT tires ride well on the road. As we hit the trail the first part is sandy mixed with rocky terrain. The tires tracked great as we hit some of the high banked berms and were very tough as Eric pounded them in the rocks. Shortly up the trail the slick rock climbs started where the tires had very solid traction. Eric put them through their paces as he was pushing them on steep climbs and descents. The traction seemed just right as the tires would bark on some of the steep climb. To me I like it when I can hear a tire talk with the occasionally slip to let you know where their traction limits are. It's good on slick rock to have traction but if your tires don't slip a bit you can have too much traction and break axles or other parts. There wasn't one time during the trail where the tires let us down even though Eric did his best to hit every rock along the trail.

We had one rider along this trail that broke 2 axles on one of the climbs and another rider that broke the rear sway bar bracket in half. Even though this is not a particularity tough trail there are many good places to test the limits of your machine and tires and wheels if you are so inclined.

Look for a full review of the Patagonia SXT in the near future!

Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

Wednesday night it was time for the Discount Tire Ice Cream Social and Raffle!!! This is always a fan favorite as we throw out tons of FREE swag into the crowd in between raffled items and hand out delicious ice cream treats.

It was a blast watching all the little kids that kept coming up to the cooler and grabbing another one of their favorite ice creams. We loved seeing their faces as they had one after another.

The list of giveaway items was pretty impressive - here is most of the items:

  • BFG T/A KM3 33x10.00R- 15 tires
  • Method Tensor Regulator 33x10.00R-15
  • Milestar Patagonia SXT 32x10.00R-15
  • Goodyear Light Truck or Passenger tires
  • Assult Mirrors and Cooler
  • Dynojet Programmers
  • Rigid Light bar
  • Misc Discount Tire Swag, Cooler and Backpacks stuffed full of Nascar goodies

In the end almost everyone ended up with some items plus they had a fun filled night as the Discount Tire team entertained them. One unique thing happened at the end of the night. The guy that won the set of BFG tires has to tie them to the top of his Yamaha YXZ. That is unique enough but to top it off he won a set of tires 2 years ago and had to tie them to the top of his Yamaha the same way!

The Discount Tire Raffle was a huge success and we had the opportunity to make some new friends.

Today we will be making breakfast for all drivers and participants before the start of guided trail rides. We are also hitting Moab Rim Trail and helping anyone that needs it!

Stay tuned for more action!!!

Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

Yesterday morning the Discount Tire team was up and at'em early at the Spanish Trails Arena making breakfast sandwiches for all the participants!

In typical Discount Tire fashion, we worked together to make 500 delicious sausage and egg sandwiches for anyone that wanted one. It was awesome to see the team put everything together so quickly!

Some friends came over to join in on the fun and help out as well. It's always nice to see how infectious it is to give back to the community. We saw some of the people that were at the Discount Tire Ice Cream Social/Raffle come over to get some food. The little girls that kept making runs to the ice cream cooler showed up as well. We made sure to tell their parents that there was still some ice cream in the cooler and to make sure the girls grabbed one if they wanted one. Why not? they are here on vacation.

After everyone had their bellies full it was time for us to go get in line for the Discount Tire Sponsored ride on Moab Rim! This is one of our favorite trails - an update from this ride coming soon!

Re: 2019 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks | DAILY COVERAGE THREAD

As we arrived to the starting line up it was packed with some amazing side by sides - what another awesome day in Moab!

The start of Moab Rim gets the mood set on high as there is a big rock you have to launch up and over - never mind the 100 foot drop seemingly right next to you. There is plenty of room but your mind plays tricks telling you it is only a couple of feet from certain death. As one after the other make it up and over with excellent help from the trail guides, the adrenaline was definitely flowing.

The Patagonia SXT made the crack look easy. We also had one of our other guys (Addam) on the trail with us in his RZR 4 XP 1000 running Method 405 15x7 5+2 wheels shod with BFG T/A KM3 in 32x10R15 tires. With Addams extra ground clearance and solid traction the crack was a mere bump.

The second obstacle is called Z-Turn because of how you normally have to turn in a "Z" fashion but Addam decided to hit the wall straight on to test the traction of the BFG tires. He launched to the top of the rock face with ease.

One after the other everyone made it through the tough spots as we kept making our way to the top of the hill.

This part of the trail is extremely rocky and we decided to hang back so that we could punish the tires by driving through the rocks fast to test the durability and toughness. I have to say I'm glad it was not my machine as we took a few hard hits, but the tires held up great!

We reached the lookout for lunch which is a gorgeous spot on the side of a cliff that over looks the town of Moab. It's always fun to have a few minutes to talk to some of the other riders and share stories from the trail and just enjoy the beauty.

After lunch we were back on the trail and it seamed the group was on a mission as the pace was picked up on the way down. We were making good time on the rocky trail until there was a bottle neck that stopped us. Being at the back of about 20 rigs we couldn't see what was going on but later found out someone rolled on their side. This was some other riders that were coming up. Everyone helped out the other group and got them back on their wheels and on their way.

We all made it to the bottom without any further incidents. When we arrived back at the condos we inspected both the Patagonia SXT tires and BFG T/A KM 3 tires. There were surprisingly no chips, slices or any noticeable wear despite the very rugged terrain we had run.

Today's guided run will be more mild but it is still a tough rocky trail named Porcupine Rim - Stay Tuned!!!
