Fierce Attitude Tires - Awesome

Well i got my first wheeling trip in with the Fierce attitude tires and i must say they did great. They are 35x12.50x17. On the road the road noise is quiet in comparison to other mud tires. On the trails I couldn't be happier. They were only aired down to 15psi. I don't think I had any slippage on rocks wet or dry. Zero issues in mud. Don't know what else to say besides awesome tires.

I had those tires as well, great tires and as you noted very quiet on the road. Never had an issue. I bought mine from Sam's which includes road hazard warranty with their installation. I believe they are D rated but in all of my research, although a few mentioned this as a concern, I did not find anyone who actually had a problem with the sidewall.

I'm still running the same tires, I've been very satisfied with them.

When I sold my last JKU I had put about 30K miles on them, still had more than half thread and wore very well. Never had a problem, they even survived my wife's constantly hitting the curbs and parking stops at the mall

I haven't been able to find a long term review of these tires so here is my 2 cents...

I bought my 2012 Rubicon May of last year with these tires on it. They are 35x12.50x17". They looked pretty new when I bought it but the Jeep had 36,000 on it. It is now near 50, 000.

The Good:

Cheap!

Work decent in all conditions
I'm not a huge snow or mud guy but they did as good as any other mud tire I've owned.

Good on road
I try to run load range "C" tires whenever possible but not easy to do with 17"s. Not bad for a "D" and many of this size are "E".

Relatively quiet
I say relative because this is the first hardtop JK I have owned and it is much quieter in general than my hardtop TJs in the past.

Wear pretty good on road
Again this is subjective since I don't know how many miles are on them. When I bought this the tire light would come on below 38psi so that is where I kept them until recently. They didn't show overinflation wear but it did ride kinda firm. Now I am experimenting around 27-32psi.

The bad:

The name
(although I couldn't care less personally)

The barbed wire sidewall looks like a bad tattoo.
I have a friend who likes to pee on them because of this.

I wish they had more tread on the sidewall
(the old Baja Claw bias ply is my favorite tire)

The ugly(not good but not necessarily the tires fault):

Jeep has a wobble.
Was death wobble until I retorqued/adjusted/rebalanced tires.

Wrecked a sidewall.

I was aired down to 10psi and went up an obstacle and had to make a sharp right/squeeze between sharp rocks. The rock broke off inside the tire. Not sure any tire would have survived and I probably shouldn't have aired down so much.

Outer edge of tread is chunking.

This is recent. I don't know if it is because I am running less street pressure, airing down more, or if repeated abuse is finally taking its toll?
With this Jeeps gearing, power, and willingness to make everything easy I am possibly guilty of leaving it in 2HI more than I should. That would cause some chunking issues although not likely on just the outer edges unless maybe because of design? This isn't the first tire to do this and I spend a lot of time doing haul ass in 2wd Mojave Trail type stuff.
That pic shows the worst section of the worst tire. The rest look more like this...


Conclusion

Rereading this it kinda sounds like I don't like them. To be fair I was going to try something different when these were done. Then I thought about tire performance in the past when I was doing this much 4 wheeling of this type. More expensive, well known radial mud tires really haven't done any better than these have. I priced different tires and then saw what a replacement would cost for one of these and decided to stick with them.

@Ronson great post of the tire and thank you giving an honest review.

I've been running these same tires for 50,000 miles with no major complaints.

And yeah the barbed wire sidewalls are cool like white framed sunglasses.

I'll say this though, the tires are good for the price.

I suppose that would be the short version of my experience also.

I've done everything I can to rub the barbedwire off in the rocks. Maybe that is the REAL reason for the chunking around the edges

Very true!
I was thinking about getting a more readily available namebrand tire.
Wanted Goodyears. Keep hearing about out of round problems.
BFGs aren't cheap and I have never worn one out (because I sidewall them before that ever happens).
So that leaves tires that would likely need to be ordered if I needed a replacement on the road.
If I eliminate all of the 35"s that are load range "E" the list gets pretty short.
What is left on that list leads me right back to these tires.

Thinking about buying 2 spares. The 2nd one is basically free compared to buying 5 of any other tire I am considering.

Also thought about going to 15" wheels/tires but the possibiltiy of going to 37s down the road kills that idea.
