Fierce Attitude M/T

Does anyone know who makes these tires and if they are any good? I've read that they were made by Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly...Thanks.

They are a Goodyear tire but they come off the Dunlop factory line. From what my tire buddy says they haven't nailed down who's brand, Goodyear/Dunlop/Kelly will carry it and the Fierce sort if fits between all three. Since Dunlop and Kelly are both Goodyear brands it really doesn't matter.

What he's telling me is these are about the same as the Duratrac's though classified as a MT. They're on my watch list, between now and March I've got to pick something.

I see 4wd.com advertises them as Goodyear. I did look at them and they are marked made in the USA.

I did alot of research before buying them. I have had them for almost 30K and they are no where close to being in need of replacemnt, matter of fact i bet i can easily get 50K out of these if not 60k. They are very similar to the duratrac, but more agressive. Very quiet at highway speeds , but sling the mud with the best of them. They are also one of the lighter mud terrains, which for me was key since i do alot of hwy driving and didnt want any more of a hit to my mileage then i knew i was going to get. We dont have much in the way or rocks here in Oklahoma, but what little weve had ive been on and they have handled fine. I will definitely be buying again if i dont move up to a larger tire.

I'm kicking around these tires as well.

Anyone running them have issues with balancing or harshness on the road? My local Discount Tire is trying to sway me away from them and into a BFG KM2...claiming they (Fierce) are a harsh ride and not very good on the street in rainy conditions.

Knuckles I was getting my oil changed at Tire Factory the other day, looking at the Fierce Attitudes. I've looked at them before, but this guy was new when I mentioned I was a bit concerned how loud they might be he said well they are, but they highly recommend rotations every 3,000 miles. He said as they wear they get louder and cupping would only make them worse.

Y-Guy, thanks for the info! All of the online reviews I've read mention that they are quiet for a MT. Interesting.

I usually rotate at 3K to 3.5K when I do oil changes so that's not a big deal to me.

Something bugs me though...if he is talking about cupping, he's got other issues at play there I would think.

Knuckles, The owner of that store is a friend of mine, he's said the same thing about being a quieter MT - that is why I've got them on my radar. The other guy said something else besides cupping, but I think the point is you really need to watch the wear pattern - that or he doesn't know much about the tire. Right now the BFG A/T KO is in the lead. Should be ready to buy in the next month... I hope.

Ah, thanks for the extra info.

The price on the Fierce is good...but still, when you factor in five tires, it gets up there in a hurry.

Another factor I have rattling around in my head is tire weight. The Fierce, in a 35/12.5, weighs 63 pounds.

The equivalent 315/70 in a Duratrac weighs 60 pounds.

On the other end of the spectrum with a true mud tire, the KM2 and Kevlar MTR both weigh 67 pounds. I know it's a Jeep, but the extra weight of the tires will effect on road handling, fuel mileage, etc.

For the record, the Nitto's I have now (295/70/17) weigh 71 pounds!

I can't seem to find the weight listings for these tires...if anyone has a link please let me know. Thx, DREW

My 285/70/17 Fierce MTs weigh 53 lbs each, about 5-10 lbs lighter than most tires in that size. The DTD forum rep here will reply to you if you ask questions. That's who gave me the weight of my tires when I was making my own decision.

I currently have 35x12.50r17 Fierce Attitude on my JK and love them. Very quiet on the highway, I actually think the BF Goodrich that came on the Jeep were louder. They do pretty well in the mud and snow as well. They do slide a little on ice but that's like all M/Ts. I have about 10,000 miles on them and they still look almost brand new. If they made bigger sizes Id defiantly get them them again when upgrading to 37s.

Same here. I've got 35x12.5x17 Fierce tires on my rig too and love them. It doesn't snow down here in Orlando, but the rocks, mud, sand, rain...nothing seems to phase these too much and they aren't terribly loud. Definitely quieter than the BFG KM2's that came stock.

I had them on my previous JKU and really liked them. They are indeed much quieter than I had anticipated, rotated them every 5000 miles and never had a problem with coping or uneven wear. I ran them for about 30k miles before I sold my Jeep with them on, they still had plenty of thread on them, probably would have lasted 50k or more miles. Sam's Club had a great price on them installed, $285 per tire for 35x12.5x17.
