How many miles did you get out of your Nitto Terra grapplers?

bought a 2006 harley davidson f250 a few months back and it came with 35" terra grapplers. when i bought it the tread looked fair and now after 10k miles they are almost bald was wondering what the average life span of these tires are before i drop $2000 on a set. thank you

my last set i got 40k out of them with rotating them often. atleast every 5k.. great tires you get what you pay for. I went with the mud grapplers this time only because I got a deal for the 37's. to early to tell with these though. look up metric sizes on ebay. it may be a cheaper route.

Rotating and taking care of them mine were bald at 20k. They were the worst tire I have ever owned. Now my friend has them on the big Lexus GX470 and he has over 50k. Maybe because it is lighter.

I have the Trail Graps now - about 15k and still have a good 70% left. At 15k on the Terras they were almost gone.

Funny thing - The trails are quiet and out perform on all aspects. I would never recomend the Terras to a friend.

Nitto in general has a great product!

I was wondering the same thing. The stock ones are at 85k so I am getting close to needing some tires. I had heard good stuff about the terra grapplers. One guy with a cummins said he had about 70k on his. Of course they were bald by then.

I got about 25K out of a set. The tire dealer said that was typical on a heavy truck coupled with the road heat in the S/W, they said some they had seen had lasted around 20K if the owners towed much. On their recommendation, I switched to Goodyears and got 65K out of the first set of those. I've got 5K on my second set and Goodyear recalled them and is going to replace them at no cost due to a tread separation issue.

I wish the Goodyears had a more aggresive tread pattern like the Nitto's, but they were slightly less expensive and lasted 2.5X longer so I'm going to stick with them in the future. Plus on a F-350 the tire dealers policy is that they will only put E rated tires on it for load/liability reasons, this limits the pool of tires to choose from as compared to the F-250.

I've got 40k on mine and still have a good 20% of useable tread left on them.
