Question on Tires

I am trying to get a new set of tires, my current MT Baja MTZs have lasted 42K and I am happy with that, but seeing as I tend to put about 40K on my truck a year, Iwas wondering if there are any tires out there with higher mileage. This one rep was trying to get me to buy the Nitto trail grapplers, and after my poor experience with some terra grapplers, I'm not sure I want to give Nitto another go. I want to ask if others have tried them and what they thought, and if the mileage and traction was worthwhile, like 35-40K miles worthwhile, and strong in snow as well as rain.
Thanks.

James.

I have the trail grapplers and I didn't find them good at all in snow. I ended up going with some bfg all terrain t/a's for the winters. I figure that I'll get decent mileage out of the trail grapplers though.

I've had great luck with Toyo's, they last a long long time, and are a great overall tire. I have also had great luck with Nitto Terra Grapplers, they are a less aggressive all terrain, but work.

I don't know what size you're running but I'm running Cooper Discoverer AT3's and they are great.

ImHo, at3's are the best a/t tire made... In the size quoted, though, dick cepek fcii radials are fantastic tires for mixed use.. you can get 50+k miles out of them if you watch your pressures and keep them rotated..

I had a set last me 40+k, and would have got easily 20k more out of them before passing Inspection would have been questionable, but I ran them too long on bad ball joints (dodge IFS truck) and the insides on the front tires were eaten in about 1k miles.. if the tread wasn't so deep, I wouldn't have gotten that much.. a lesser tire would not have lasted 200 miles those joints were so bad..

i can't answer for snow, but in rain soaked pavement, they are the best i've ever had.

tires i've had: BFG A/T & M/T, Nitto A/T & M/T, Toyo M/T.

Best mileage so far: Nitto A/T & Toyo M/T

Best wear: Nitto (only 35K on my toyo M/T and they look brand new)

Best price: 4 years ago! hahahaha

My buddy has a 2011 w/4" lift and 35's and ran the Nitto M/T. They are too loud for my liking, and he ran through them fast, as i did with my '04. my 2 cents. hope this helps.
