Expanding Atturo’s lineup overall, the Trail Blade MTS pushes the brand further into its area of expertise – off-road tires. The new Trail Blade MTS stands for mud-terrain sport, and takes the already impressive qualities of the Trail Blade M/T to the next level.
To achieve this, it shares the same four-lug tread design but with added grooves and sipes for even more grip in loose earth, gravel and mud.
One of the hallmark’s of Atturo Tires’ styling is the brand’s partnership with Quartermaster Knives, with designs that are inspired by that brand’s most celebrated models. Once again, the partnership is evident here, with a tread design that borrows from the OTR-5 karambit knife, flowing down onto the sidewall. This feature isn’t just aesthetic either, helping the Trail Blade MTS eek out additional traction in the deepest of mud, with the alternating pattern acting like a serrated edge.
That same design also works to dissipate sound from the base of the tread – something that’s always a concern with mud terrain tires.
Are they loud? Sure, but they’re not outrageous like many budget-focused mud tires out there.
As for the tread surface, the tread lugs now feature newly designed stone ejectors, to minimize buildup of small rocks that can not only prevent grip, but also lead to premature tire wear. They’ll also make sure to keep mud from packing the void space and ruining your traction.
Designed mostly for aftermarket rim sizes, the Trail Blade MTS is build for serious off-road machines, especially Jeeps. With a heavy-duty 12-ply carcass, it’s also unique in that it’s built for 3/4- and 1-ton pickup trucks as well.
Central tread blocks are tied together via a central tread rib, helping give added stability to the tires. This helps in terms of offering some slightly better on-road performance, dialing-out some of the tread flex you get in long, knobby tread blocks. More critically, it allows the tire to better resist the forces exerted on it by big powerful V8 and diesel engines, ensuring it doesn’t wear prematurely.
Powerful engines can be extremely hard on tire wear, especially if you do a lot of start-stop driving, so this makes a real difference.
Debuting at the 2019 SEMA Show, Atturo first launched one size and has since rolled out 11 more, including many for 22- and even 24-inch wheel sizes.

Atturo Trail Blade MTS Warranty
Like all mud terrain tires, the Trail Blade MTS does not come with a specific milage warranty. Similarly, Atturo’s other mud-terrain tire, the Trail Blade MT, does not come with a mileage warranty.
All Atturo tires are backed by a standard warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship for three years. The warranty applies to the original owner of the tires. Within the first 2/32-inch of wear if a defect is found Atturo will replace the tires for free (the owner is responsible for the cost of mounting and balancing). After that wear amount and within the three year period, defective tires will be replaced on a pro-rated basis.
Atturo Trail Blade MTS Sizes
With only the 35×13.5R20 size available at launch, Atturo has added 11 additional sizes for popular vehicles and fitments.
How long do Atturo Trail Blade MTS tires last?
While they don’t come with a factory tread life warranty, expect to see anywhere from 40,000 to 45,000 miles on a set of Trail Blade MTS tires. It will definitely depend on how much actual of-roading you do and how extreme the terrain.
