Which store location and I'll get on the phone? My Discount tire said that there weren't any anywhere in the US. They had one set of BFG 345/75/16 in AZ that belonged to a customer. No MTR's in a 315/75/16 or 37 17's

abilene tx location told me and showed me on their computer that a few stores had them in sets of 4, they could get them in the 35 1250 15 in a few days. I stuck with the 315/75R16 Maxxis bighorn since I have run them on two other trucks.

I bought a set of Fierce MTs for my JK. I went to a 285/70 on 17" Moabs, and I honestly can't believe any of the naysayers, particularly ones that haven't driven these. In short, they're fantastic tires.

I don't care about spiderwebs, skull and crossbones, rock shift knobs, grenade shift knobs, etc. I just like things that function, and function well.

The Fierce MT was a lower price than many other MTs, but guys on the JK forum reported good results so I decided to give them a try. I have had fantastic results. They're great on mud and snow. And you can go 100mph on them (although they're rated for 93) and the wind noise in a JK is far louder than the tire noise.

What's up with all the tire spec bench racing? Talk about lame, quit trying to explain all the technical reasons why this tire is going to perform or not perform in any given situation given the lug spacing or some other nonsense. I've had many Jeeps on many tires, and I have to say that the Fierce MT is as good or better than the BFG AT in the snow. It's fantastic in mud and rocks, and balances better than a lot of other tires out there. The installer only needed a few ounces to balance them, and as I mentioned before, if you have occasion to find a long straight stretch of runway, they'll go 100mph without any trouble. These are balanced as well as the Nittos on my sports car.

Everyone quit trying to find fault, they work, they work well, and they're more affordable than most of the comparable options. They may not be the finest off-road tire ever made. If the dumb graphics on the side wall are a deal breaker for you, then go work on your GTL instead of wheeling.


They also tuck pretty nicely inside the fender flares if you don't add wheel spacers.

i am not a kelly fan purely because i have seen them last 35k and then i see them last 15k. Just the inconsistency bugs me but. I also don't care for the looks of it, i feel like it has a cheaper look to it as opposed to the others

The Fierce Attitude appears to be a GY MT mud tire, because Discount tire also sells it, rather than a Sears private brand,

The stock size on my TJ Rubi is LT245/75x16. At Sears, the Fierce Attitude is $203, but the Cooper STT is only $177, Hankook Dynapro MT is $205, and GY's premier tire, the MTR/K is $214, only $11 more.

They are $232 at Discount tire and there is only one(1) in their 3 warehouses. The Cooper STT is $201, Hankook Dynapro MT is $204, GY Duratrac is $214, and the MTR/K is $259.

So in my size, not only are they are not a bargain, but I'd be concerned about finding replacements and ending up like I am now - carrying around a brand new old style MTR spare, which I can't match with a new set of 4.

If this is GY's serious attempt to finally offer a true mud tire and not just the maximum traction MTR/K and Duratrac hybrid, why wouldn't they offer the popular 15"?
