Fuel has become an extremely popular brand in the market for truck tires this year. One of the top brands that you may have heard of from Fuel is the newest gripper tire lineup from this manufacturer. As we take a closer look at the line of Gripper tires, you can check out some of their features and decide which is right for you.
The Gripper AT is an all-terrain tire that’s extremely diverse and drivable on most tarmac surfaces. This is far from a standard all-terrain tire and it offers a more aggressive trendline then you will find in most types of hybrid wheels. The middle section of the wheel can reduce noise on the road and there’s a series of sites along it that improve heat release. The large blocks along the outside are great for maintaining off-road grips and this is very useful in a wide range of conditions for highway driving. The double layer material provides extra stability a higher speeds and the tire is a fantastic entry-level choice.
This is a deep grooved tire that offers excellent contraction and an extremely strong sidewall. The aggressive tread pattern makes this a coveted choice amongst many mud tires. The sidewall looks extra thick but is somewhat standard with a cooler colored look that can be a selling point for people focused on off-road aesthetics. The polyester shell is a three ply format giving these improve the impact resistance and a much higher load capacity than some competitor mud tires.
The XT is the official hybrid offering from Gripper and the large tread blocks and wide voides make this a design that you might expect to see on a racetrack. The huge blocks are perfect for grip and the massive spacing on these make them performance ready but quite noisy. These are strong tires but if you still regularly take your vehicle on the highway. It might be best to go with a different design.
Keep some of these top models in mind as you are choosing between Gripper tire models.
