Finally ordered my tires!

Well, after thinking about it for a while, I decided to go with the Nitto Dura Grappler 275/65R20 for my truck. I was torn between these, the Terra Grappler, and the Michelin LTX. I decided on these because they are less expensive than the Michelins and they last a long time from what I have read.

I picked them up on Discount Tire Direct's ebay site and saved a good amount over going with any other store.

Is anybody else running these yet? I do pretty much all on road driving so they seemed like a good choice since they look sweet and have a 60k warranty. I would like to hear from others running this tire or anybody that is familiar with it.

No, but I like the way they look. I do the same driving as you, mostly highway, but these POS Continentals blow for that too. I'd be interested to see how they work in the snow?

Yeah I had the Continentals on the 18's that came on my truck, the rubber on them seemed extremely soft and they wore pretty quick!

Not only that, but the traction is terrible

How much did you pay for the tires, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks for your support Shep! You'll like the Dura Grappler, good choice. Just one thing, only the P-Metric sizes offer the 60K mile tread life warranty. The LT Dura Belt sizes carry a 45K mile warranty. All other size do not have a milage warranty. No need to worry though, this tire will last either way. Any pics?

I should have them later this week I think. I plan on trying to get them mounted this weekend. I will definitely send some pics your way if you want them.

I guess there isn't many people running these yet since they are so new?
