Fuel Tires Installed 38x15.50R22

Well it was time for new tires on my truck, and I decided I did not like the size of mine and wanted bigger! I did a lot of research, and I attempted to get a set of 40x15.50R22 Toyo's, but that was not going to work with my lift. What I ended up finding was a 38x15.50R22 made by Tri-Ace High Performance and branded by Fuel Offroad. These tires look just like the Toyo's, and ride surprisingly well. I have include some before and after pictures. My Nitto Trail Grapplers (old tires) are 37x13.50R22.

Let me know how they turn out? I was on the fence with them and went with the toyos. They look great! Do they rub and are they louder than the trail grapplers?

They sound about the same as the trail grapplers, but fill the wheel out much better than the 37x13.50 did in my opinion. They only barely touched the bottom of the front fender flares at complete turn so I had them trim off a half inch on the bottom where you can see it. I just didn't want to have any issues turning so I went ahead and trimmed the end piece.

Got any head on shots to compare the old vs new width? Front or Back would suffice.

Thanks!

I thought that was a great new size when I saw it on fuels site. I'm wondering if they are a copy of the toyos or not.

They're basically a copy of Toyo's tread and sidewall but available in some different sizes, like 35x13.50r20 and 38x15.50r22 like these. They're made in China by a company called Tri-Ace.

I ordered a set of these as well, hope to have them on my 2013 here soon with my 8" fabtech. Would've gone 38x15.50r20 with Toyo but I wanted a little bigger wheel.

Very curious how these hold up. did some research on fuel vs toyo vs nitto. take it as you will, this is what I found...

toyo and nitto are made in the same factory in the US.
Fuel from china

Fuels are a tread copy of the toyo, which is very easy to do, if you look at the side by side you can spot quite a few differences that make them not copies.

Also read the Fuel is a much harder compound then the toyo, and any experience I read into was not good. I have zero experience with either but will most likely be purchasing Toyos in a month or 2. That being said the Fuel is still an awesome looking tire, with odd but sought after sizes and can be had for a fraction of the price as the toyos. Good luck, truck looks great !

Nice! Hope they make 24's in the future so I can try them out when my TrailGrapplers are wore out...
