The FAMT has decorative barbed wire pattern on sidwalls that do look like cleaning ridges, and would indeed work well as cleaning ridges, if they'd continued it on through the area between the outer treadblocks.

But they didn't. Instead they stopped the ridge just before it leaves sidwall area and enters the void between outer treadblocks.

That's unfortunate because it turns the barbed wire feature into mere decoration, instead of the functional self cleaning aid that it could be if it continued on into the void between the outer treadblocks.

I understand how looking at a picture could make you think they're functional self cleaning ridges, but they're not. Go to a tire store and look at some in person up close, and you'll see what I mean. Also, look at the Kelly tire in person too, and also measure the spaces between the outer lugs (I did measure and compare IRL on the FAMT, Kelly, and Duratrac), and observe how many center tread blocks, orientation of shapes and sipes. I still think the Duratrac is the best of those 3 tires, and the tire store guy who sells all 3 thinks so too.

The Dunlop tire looks awesome in pics. I'll have to look into that one more. I've never seen one in person. Only seen pics. While a pic is worth a thousand words, it's no substitute for seeing a tire in person, and actually measuring and comparing things is helpful too, IMO.

Just picked up a set of these tires, putting them on this weekend. Yeah, the name might sound stupid but if you are so insecure that you care what someone says about your tires then you have bigger problems. On sale right now for 150 a tire at Goodyear dealers.

I hope they are good

I just bought 5 of these tires 35-12.5-17 for $950 (including shipping).

The tires in that size were $175 each through DiscountTires.com One day shipping in CA was only $95 on the tires. Can't do much better than that.

So far so good, with the tires, they look great and are very very heavy. They balance easily (sandbags) and are actually pretty quiet. Have not gone off road yet, but it appears I am going to be very happy.

It is not a cheap tire, regardless of the price.

Great looking Tire, and cheap. Also a plus that they are made by Goodyear through Kelly-Springfield. Ride is really quiet for an MT. Only had them on a few light trails....did really well. So Far so good.

Kelly Safari TSR

I had wanted the Fierce tires but they were out of stock and back ordered. The tire shop had some Kelly Safari TSRs for less. I got the 35" tires for 170.00 each. They are pretty much the same tires as the fierce attitudes but less attitude on the side walls (which I like). The tires are great, quiet, siped for awesome rain slick road traction, good off road and now Im waiting for snow! Awesome tires for the money! I just hope they wear well. We shall see

Yeah I was looking at the Safari TSR's....great AT tire. Lot of friends have run them on their trucks. I had them on my Nissian Pick-up. Got over 40,000 out of them. The Side wall art on the Fierce are a little cheezy, but for the price at 150 a tire for a 10 ply MT with 40,000 mile warranty and a nice aggresive deep tread with siped lugs, I can't complain to much. Plus its american made

So Seek, what do they measure installed on your Jeep? I am really liking these for the JK, if I can convince the man that they will work for him.... The price is much better than the Duratracs he was wanting....

The Duratracs are a great tire, really aggresive AT, but the fierce has deeper lugs and is a MT which is nice. I'm a tad over 33" with the 285/75/16
