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.

- 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.
