Atturo tires

Anyone tried these tires out yet? Tire shop keeps pushing me to get them saying they are supposed to last longer than federals. Sidewalks look a lot better than couragias mts but I like the bigger gap between the lugs on the federals better. I've had a set of Feds and I really liked them.

Some tires I have are Japanese, some German, some USA. There is nothing wrong with Taiwan. Taiwan is NOT China, just like Japan is not China. Having said that, I'd probably stick with the big trusted Jeep tires, regardless of where they are made.

I've never heard of any of those tire brands and wouldn't run any of those on a lawn mower let alone a Jeep.

There are lots of tires most people have never heard of in the US. Nokian only became known in the US in the last few years. Until then, no one even gave them a second look, same goes with Nitto. Not saying the above mentioned tires are any good...just saying the "I never heard of them" is seldom a good buying strategy.

Just found something interesting....

Atturo offers affordable alternative

Atturo Tire Corp. is promoting its new AZ800 line to SUV, sport truck and crossover vehicle owners with the slogan, “Performance within reach.”

The ultra-high performance tire is both “an affordable plus-size option and affordable OE replacement option” for vehicles like the Porsche Cayenne, says Michael Mathis, co-owner of Atturo Tire with his brother, Don.

Manufactured by Federal Tire Corp. in Taiwan and modeled after the Federal Couragia line, the private brand tire is “Obama-tax free,” according to Mathis. It competes against similar Kumho, Hankook, Nexen and Falken brand products.

“Our dealers have a real opportunity to keep the price where they want to,” he says.

The 15-size line ranges from 255/45VR20 XL to 305/35VR24 XL; 14 are extra-load sizes.

“One of the things we’ve done is focus on some unique fitments, with staggered sizes,” says Mathis. For example, the AZ800 is available in size 275/40R20 106W XL for the front axle and 315/35R20 106W for the rear axle.

Two additional sizes, 255/50WR19 (front) and 285/45WR19 (rear), will be available in February 2010. Atturo will add two 22-inch sizes in March.

“We hope to both expand the AZ800 line with new sizes, and to add models for UHP tires in 17- to 20-inch sizes and performance-oriented snow tires.” - B.U.

Reading reviews, they don't seem to be half bad. A lot of the modded SRT8 GC guys run them after being tired of burning through a fortune in rubber. (not the MTs obviously.)

Supposedly (based on the primitive research I have done) the tread was actually seriously engineered, and is supposed to "cut" through the mud. Now while I won't comment on the performance of these tires, as obviously I have never used them, it is worth noting that most MTs have pretty similar tread pattern. The same was true for high end sports car tires. Some manufacturers went outside the box, and produced "weird" tread patterns, which actually resulted in BETTER performance. Like I said, I wouldn't discount a tire simple because of its origin, but I understand everyone wants someone else to be the guinea pig. I can bet that if someone people trust (a jeep magazine, warn, whatever) came out and said these are the best tires they have ever used, no one would give a rats a$$ where they were made. They would only care about the fact that they perform, and cost 1/2 the price.

so far, they only make the 33x12.5/17 (the only common jeep size). their website states that there will be more sizes to come, however i did check on the price since NSFrS2000NYC got me curious and the pricing is pretty much on par with the competitors.

hopefully one of our members has em and could give a us a review.

We might have to venture different forums to find some sort of user review.

These are new, so I can't find any on these specific ones. However, the other tires they make seem to have positive reviews.

I've had them for a month or so now. I haven't tested them in the mud yet but the are quiet on the road with a slight hum. The ride is smooth and they seem to be hiding up well. No problems in the rain.

My TJ had General Grabbers w / red lettering. They were quiet and were good in all environments. I was hoping to get some for my new Jeep but I was talked into these.

I'd recommend both.

Sorry for the typos. I have a hard time typing on this little screen.

I meant to say they are quiet for a mud tire and they are holding up well.
