Nitto Trail Grapplers

So who here is running these tires, and what is your experience with them?... my truck sees its fair share of off road use with the Fire Dept and im curious. I will also be towing my 9k travel trailer quite a bit. i am currently running 35" mickey thompson mtz's and they have done a great job im just looking to try something different so im going to try the 35" trail grapplers. Any and all input is greatly appreciated guys.

Sorry for the post and no info, but I am curious of these tires myself... I was running Cooper Discover MTs and just switched to BF Goodrich AT's and am thinking about these for my next set if they are living up to the hype..

I had them on my old f150 and loved them good tire wear good traction and good looks. I will definitely consider them for my f250 when I replace the tires on it now.

I've had mine for almost two years now, with fourty couple thousand miles on them. They go good in mud or snow. They are a softer compound so keeping them rotated is key. I should be good for another 10,000 or so. They are not loud at all. Mine are 315/75/16's. Cheaper than the BJG's I use to have.

I really like the MTZs as well but have been eyeballing the Nittos as well. They look good. The mtzs wear really well and I would hate to buy the grapplers if they dont last very long. I drive in the snow alot and the mtz is the best snow/mudder I have used. I just bought the truck I have now and it has the nitto muds with about 40% tread. I dont recomend these tires. VERY loud and stuck everywhere in the snow. My truck is only a 1 wheel drive though. Gots to get a traction diff.
