Fierce Tires | Attitude M/T
Kinda remind me of the duratracs

They are.
Look at Dunlop Radial Mud Rover Max Traction too; all off the same assembly line.

Goodyear is getting rid of the Fierce name brand and planning to make the Attitude an entry level GY product if they keep it. They're also canceling the Dunnie entirely ---- you can usually score smokin' deals on both of these tires right now as a result.
Both great tires. One with a silly name...

Good tires that are usually very overpriced. Also heavy compared to others in the same genre/size.
Often hard to find in a pinch.

I had bad luck with Nitto sport tires for the street on my MINI and don't think I can trust that company again.
Although their new mud tire seems pretty well made, the original Mud Grapplers have the most intense Xtreme Mall Crawler look ever conceived. Even worse than the Cepek poser tire and Thornbird.

I am in too much of a hurry to read all of the posts....but I will tell you, from experience, that no matter what tire you choose to go with, millions will hate it and millions will like it.

I had Nitto Terra Grapplers on my last truck and hated them. I think they were terrible because I never put any weight in the bed. But, I wanted to give Nitto another try at keeping my business, so I went with the Trail Grapplers on my new Jeep. I have barely put 100 miles on them yet, so I really can't give you an honest opinion.

I am sure whatever you decide to go with will make you happy.

I'm leaning heavy on the Kevlars for next go round. It will be at least a year though unless I sell my Dunlops M/t's I have now. I'm very anxtious on the report for these especially how quickly they wear on road. Goodyear and BFG's have always wore out quick in the past for me but my driving style has signifigantly changed since I got a lift.

Mine are 35x12.5x18's as well. With 3.73's they are going to rob power for sure. I put in the 5.13's & couldn't be happier. It's deffinately more sluggish with these 35's than it was with my 33 inch BFG's.

Toyos are heavy heavy tires. They are designed to be on 3/4 & 1 ton trucks. I have to air down to 10 psi to get them to squat, lol.
Here's a pic for you.

I would put the geolandars towards the top. They look nice especially with white lettering and look pretty aggressive. They are definately better than the bridgestones in mud too. Granted they arent mud tires but they work great on trails. They are also good on rocks. The bridgestones can get eaten up by rocks quick. Someone here posted a pic of their bridgestones and it looks like dry Rot from the rocks. Basically don't get the bridgestones. The Duratrac Isnt up there either. That is an extremely good looking and functional all terrain that is very capable in mud

i have the bfg km series and they have been good so far. was considering going to the km2's based off the great reviews they are getting but two things are stopping me from doing that.

1) apparently they won't fit on a stock JK without modding it (which i'm not planning on doing right now)

2) they come with white writing on the side wall that will look tacky as hell on my black JK with gunmetal rims and tints

They're making them in a variety of sizes now, you know.
There's one to fit your Jeep without needing a sawzall...

Ummmmm, when you flip them 'round, they're blackwall... ...like every other tire on the planet...


If you're going to knock the KM2s, knock them for their real demerits; they're primarily an offroad tire, mud-oriented at that. They're just not that good on the street compared to the competition.
Goodyear and Cooper are doing a better job of using technology to make better tires.
