Nitto Dura Grapplers?

Hello again friends..just a quick question, has anyone here had any first hand experience with the Nitto Dura Grapplers ((LT275/65R20 E126R 16 34.05 10.90 7.0-(8.0)-9.5 3,750@80Olbs.)? I need an excellent E rated tire of course (who doesn't here?) but I also need an excellent severe wet weather rain/snow tire also..reasonably quiet, durable etc. etc. etc. would of course always be part of my dream tire lol. Once again I defer to the expert daily drivers here on this forum..I already did plenty of research but thought I would check in here for first hand Powerstroke knowlege..thanks guys.

They didn't last long for me, like no longer pass inspection after 30k miles.....your experince may vary.

I got taken out by a Hyundai...it's not funny...now I look like Stump, but taller

I've got 60 on my hankook dyna pro M/T's , have been running them on the Excursion, a little heavier than the 250-350. It's an E load range, is pinned for studs if that's legal in your province. Not the most aggressive mud tire, but not bad. Quiet as most A/T's. And 4 of them in 35's can be purchased for 860 US$. I've got them on the wife's F-350 DRW also, and I don't know if she will ever wear them out.

Why do these E load range tires have to be so expensive?

I run the Tera Grapplers in the D rating and aside from the "singing" they do I love them. I have about 17K on them and you can't hardly tell they have been on the road. Hope this helps in your search
