Fuel tires?

What's up with the fuel tires? I mean it's toyo treads does toyo make them and just put fuel on them? Are they any cheaper? Seems kind of stupid to me

Where did u see these? Got me curious. On a side note though, the toyo open country a/t and nitto terra grapplers are made in the same factory, so ive been told. And we all know everything you read on the internet is true!

There was a good amount of talk about them on gmfullsize.com and people were interested in running them because of some of the sizes you can get them while other manufactures don't make that size. Last I heard though they were a little pricey and toyos being cheaper. But if you want your rims and tires to match...

Hmm interesting, I wonder what sizes? Toyo makes there fair share of sizes I thought. If they areade by toyo like they look then it would be pretty cool to match them to the wheels. I also just saw fuel makes grilles to you could have a sick ass matching truck for some $$

35x13.5x20 is interesting maybe get the awesome look of your truck with 20x14 rather than 22 little smaller maybe I wouldn't have to dig into my fenders and be able to keep the flares? Then again they might look stupid like little burritos or something lol wish I could talk tire companies into building wheels do I can look at them

You'd have to be cranked up to 9" and you would probably still rub with the 35x13.50R20 on a 20x14 if you didn't cut. I could get my 20x12s on 35x12.50R20 to rub on the fender flare at full crank hitting a bump with decent speed. didn't look bad with the size I just wanted something no one else had around here.

Yeah these wheel wells are terribly small I can rub my 20x10 35x12.5 if I try it sucks I really don't want to go to 9" tho I want to keep my Cvs in tach, I hear you on the being different no one round here has a wide wheel I I think it looks awesome talked to a couple guys they don't like the idea but I think it's sweet. Only thing stopping me is the flares haven't got a chance to talk to my paint/body work guy to see if he can mod them to work with your fender mod so well see I guess

Supposedly it is a Chinese made tire. Not sure of the quality. Years ago I was involved in OTR tires that I bought a lot out of China. You can get a good deal on them when they make it there, put them in a container, and then ship them to the states. But I would be curious to see how others have gotten out of these. I also know of cheap Chinese tires, so it would leave me hesitant. I would buy the Toyo MT in a heartbeat, but I am not going back to stock size, and they do not make my current size yet, and the next size up 295/70R17 would rub on my UCA. Guess I am just SOL for the moment.
