Had a friend run Nitto Grapplers. Tread lasted less than 10K miles and that was with no burnouts, racing, etc...just normal everyday driving.

Bought ProComp Xtreme All Terrains and so did I. I love them, very little hum, great traction in all types of driving/weather and also come with a 40K mile guarantee.

Performance: SCT Xcal-Innovative Diesel, 4" Turbo Back Exhaust no muffler and kitty missing, Spearco IC, ID Power Elbow, AFe Stg. II Intake, 03 Turbo.
Exhaust Clip:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYF9HgB0RwY

Looks: Westin Black Powder Coated Bull Bar, Recon Smoked Cab, Mirror Lights, and 3rd Brake Light, 4" Superlift kit, 35" ProComp Extreme A/T's, 18x10 Diamo Black & Chrome Rims.

Yea and he paid almost twice as much for the Nittos as he did the ProComps. Every single person that I know that runs Nitto tires (on anything other than race cars, mustangs, vettes, camaros) have sold them and bought new tires.

what kind of nittos you are talking about - ATs or MTs? The Terra Grapplers are really good AT tires and most people get good mileage (40-50k) out of them. Mud Grapplers are really good in mud but suck for driving on the road and wear really fast (10-20k miles).

They were the Terra Grapplers, the A/T tires. Things were just garbage.
