Anyone running FUEL M/T offroad tires?

Needing new tires soon and came across these in a 35x13.50x20.. just curious of anyone has run these and what opinions are.. they look similar to the toyo mts but about $800 cheaper and toyo doesn't offer 35x13.50..

Also curious as well. Ive heard they are a harder rubber than the toyos, which i think is close to impossible.
Where did you price them to be $800 cheaper than Toyos? Every place ive looked they are close to the same price +-$25

A local dealer said i could get them for around $1100 and the toyos for about $1900. I may have to double check my prices. I'm really just wanting a 13.50 wide because I'm running a 12 inch wide wheel and my 12.50 barely protect the lip.

Damn, $1900 and $1100 seem off a little...

I use rimzoneonline.com for prices and they're saying:

Toyo 35/12.50-20 - $1480
Fuel 35/12.50-20 - $1300
Fuel 35/13.50-20 - $1670

If you can really get em at 1100, I'd do it. I bet they'd look sick.

I may have misheard.. i probably got excited that i finally found a 35x13.50. Anyone know the metric size for something close to that, in the toyo or something? Right now i'm cautious about buying the Fuel tires because i haven't heard any actual reviews of them.

I talked to a kid at the XDP even in October and he said that they wear like sh!t and the compound is super soft. They cant handle the torque I guess? The MTs are always soft, but these are dumb soft.

Take that for what its worth... I seen them there at the show, but we dont know if this kid is roasting them off or what.

I have Fuel mt 35x12.50/22 and they have 7000 mile on them and I am going to rotate for the first time and to be honest i really don't think they need it! no cupping at all and i can see very little wear, the tits may have completely been wore off at about 3000 mile. little noisy but i would expect that from mt but no worse then my wife h3 bfg. I hear cold air intake more with windows up, I would buy them again so far!

I'm running some 35/12.5/20s. I like them. They wear faster than the toyos. I got my set for 1188 mounted with balancing beads.

How can you compare them to wearing faster than the Toyos?
