    Has anyone ran the 2nd Gen Fuel mud grippers? If so what size and what were/are the pros and cons? How long did they last? Did they wear evenly? How noisy are they? How did they perform?

    Pretty sure they are Chinese made, very, very similar to Toyo. Hence the low pricing.

    The cheapest I found is 342 a tire. I thought that was kids high.

    There are not a lot a reviews out there for Fuel Mud Grippers. Not sure how good the rubber is. Most complaints on various forums were balancing issues with these tires. If they are stamped with "made in China" I would definitely have some concerns about quality.

    Never heard of it. Personally I would stick to what's known to do well based on your driving conditions.

    The reviews I've read sounds okay, not as good as Toyo or Nitto, but acceptable. But the price doesn't make sense for the tire without any established reputation (and that it is made in China doesn't give you warm and cozy feelings for most of us in the US).
