Last Time...Fierce Attitude MT vs. Nitto Trail Grappler

Ok, I promise this will be the last tire thread for a while. I've narrowed my choices of new 35" tires to the Fierce Attitude MT or the Nitto Trail Grapplers.

Thoughts between these two tires only please.

Info:
- 2013 JKU, 2.5 RK lift, 3.73 factory gears
- Daily driver
- Terrain is mostly dirt, mud, ruts and very, very few rocks. Biggest concern of punctures is stumps, logs or small cut off/down trees.

Trail Grapplers. They will hold up a lot better and are a lot less likely to puncture. They are also a much better mud/clay tire. Onroad I cannot imagine a better mannered MT tire either and for me I lost very little fuel mileage even with my 40s which makes me happy. In the past I have seen just going from a 30 to a 32.5" tire drops in fuel economy of 5-6 MPG on the hwy, but I lost only 2 MPG going from my stock 255/75/17 BFG KM1s to my 40" trail grapplers. I attribute this to the fact that they roll very easily down the road. If you let off to coast it does not feel like you have the E brake on like is often the case with heavier MT tires.

I agree with Nitto Trial. I use it for my DD and love them on the street. They have been wonderful for offroading too. I would take these over any other tire for the combination you are looking at.
