Question Anyone ever run FUEL tires?

I am looking at the Fuel tires! But don't have any experience or really heard of them! They look like the Nitto Trail Grapplers M/T, but don't know! I am really leaning towards the Nitto Grapplers M/T though! In a 315/70/17 due to it's a D rated tire, thinking that will give a better ride!

they look more like the toyo MT.

but yes the trail grap in D load will ride better than the 35x1250x17 that is E rated.

the 315 is .2 inches smaller though LOL

Not really, my distributor has the 315 in Stock . The nitto trail grap is what I'm talking about. Making sure we're on the same page

Fuel tires are shit. Softer than a Toyo/Nitto and we have sent a few back with out of round issues....more than any other tire we deal with except for the Federal MT.

I run the 35 12.5 17 fuels.

I have put around 14k miles on them and do not have any issues with them so far. They did take a little bit more weight to balance than others I have seen but they go down the road great!
They are a repro of the Toyo MTs. Keep in mind that these are much heavier tires than others of the same size. Mine are about 30 lbs heavier. More weight means less mpg, less acceleration, and a tad easier to break things when crawling.
