tires...

What do yall think of Nitto Trail Grapplers? I currently have Nitto A/T 285 65 18. and they are doing well but it sadly is time to get new ones. I forgot to mention that I can get the Trail Grapplers for 200 each. I drive 140 a day just to get to work and getting back. so something that will last longer and yall recomend would be amazing thanks yall

I agree with WarChild. The BFG's wear like iron and are a great looking tire. I just put some new ones on my truck 2 weeks ago. They are a little more pricey but I think they are worth it.

I would have to disagree with you. I had BFGs before my Trail Graps and they did not last long at all. I drive 90% city stop and go and am looney tuned so I spin quite a bit and my Nitto Trails are wearing better than my BFGs did. The BFGs were really good off road for an AT tire but the Trails aren't loud at all for an MT and will pull through anything, even nasty mud clears out well. I will say that my BFGs hung on to the road better in dry conditions but the Trails are much better in the rain. I think my next tires will be the ProComp Extreme All Terrains, gotta try em all to find the best one.

I am on my 3rd SD and my 6th or 7th set of KO's and if u keep pressure around 50 - 55 they last a long long time.

I had the nitto trails on last and I got about 30k out of them. I get about 50-60K out of my BFG's . I do a ton of driving from city stop and go to driving from Florida to TN to CO and back to FL. Nothing has touched my BFG's. I keep my psi at 55. Thatss not even mentioning my nittos got choppy as hell. Never had the procomps.

How are you guys getting that kind of mileage out of these tires? I got 20K out of my BFGs and am hoping to get about 25K out of my Trails. I hate my right foot

I can't imagine only getting 20k out of a set of tires. Heck, I got 75k out of the OEM wranglers.
