Anyone heard of a AMP tire??

Unfortunately I didn't look at them real close when I was at the local shop today. They look almost exactly like the Toyo MT tire, same pattern. I asked and they person I talked too said they are a new company and they have sold a few sets. No "reviews" on them yet but said they haven't had any complaints yet. I just bought the truck so I don't need tires yet but looking at things and figured I would ask if anyone has seen them.

I saw some today on craigslist. A tire shop in Atlanta was advertising them. Looked pretty mean. But I would probably spend a couple more hundred and get something with some history. The 35x12.5x20 I looked at were still $1400

Yesterday was the first time I have seen or heard of them. Looked almost exactly like the Toyo mt. I had a set of toyo's back in the day and they were great. I suspect a set of the same size is 400 bucks more for the Toyo's. Tire prices are rediculus these days....

If you're familiar with the Fuel Off Road Mud Gripper tire, then you're familiar with these.... same tire it seems to me. Very similar look to the Toyo, but a closer look at the sidewall and individual lugs tells a different story.

Really soft rubber compound on the tire which makes for the best snow tire I've had on this pickup yet, but really soft in the corners; not a sidewall issue either (37's on 22's.)

They are wearing much better than I expected as I'm around 15K on em, and still better than I expected 65-70 percent. Not easy on em either as I tow quite often, oh and they are loud as %$&k!

Hope that helps!

I just got a set of the fuel mud grippers. I like em. I got them for $1188 mounted with balancing beads. I just got them a couple of weeks ago.

How are the balancing beads working out? What size tire did you end up with? I have had good and bad luck with beads.
