"New" Dick Cepek Fun Country tires
 
Anybody running this tire yet? I know it just came out. I haven't seen any reviews anywhere. It has my attention.

Any links?

I have FCIIs and I love them.

Took a look at them when they first came out, but not available in many sizes and most of them are load range E

I'm looking at LT315/70R17. It weighs 66lbs. The GY Duratrac is 60 lbs. However the DC is a 3 ply side wall tire vs. a 2 ply. I'm tired of the rock punctures on my side walls.

The FC tires in 31x10.50x15 won't be out until next month. A coworker wants to buy my MTZ's for a fair price and I'm looking for a new set of tires. The FC II's are being discontinued and I might be able to find a good deal on a set. I live in southern AZ where four wheeling is mostly on dry, rocky, loose dirt, and sandy mining roads. Can you provide more details on the performance of the FC II's on and offroad? I would appreciate it!

That's a pretty good review. i wonder how they do on lighter weight Wranglers. According to the DC tech, the FC II is being replaced by the new Fun Country.

On a side note, MT is coming out with the new ATZ tire on 15" tire sizes, but no until mid August.

Arch, that review pretty much sums it up. I really like these tires.

I kind take the reviews from magazines with a grain of salt because most tire companies buy advertising from the magazines. It take reviews from members on this forum more seriously. Thank you!

I found a review of this tire.

I am still giving this tire serous consideration. Also still considering GY DT maybe even Hankook DP MT

The FC II has only a 2ply sidewall in the 15" tires, but the new FC is supposed to have a 3ply sidewall. The MC ATZ is supossed to have 3 plies as well. Both of these tires are supposed to be out this month. I couldn't wait, so I bought the Cooper STT 31" tires. Cooper makes the DC and MT tires.
