TIRES

Time for tires everyone! I am stuck between a few. Looking at the Nitto Terra and Dura Grapplers. 305/70R16 E. Dont tow very much but the wife and I are buying a destination camper weighing about 10,500lbs. Not gonna be moving it very often maybe once a year. I also pull a cargo trailer weighing about 4,000lbs. Towed maybe a few times every few months. I had some pro comp extreme all terrains and dont need anything that aggresive but I also want a load range E tire. The only off road my truck touches is the sand to go on the beach for fishing, and maybe the snow during winter. So what do you all think? Pro, Cons of each of the above tires. What do you recommend or have to say about these tires? Or do you recommend something else? Please share what you got!!

I have not personally ran any of those, but my friend is running the terra grapplers on his d-max and loves them. Said they are great in the snow and he pulls a small toy hauler often for motocross.

Terra Grapplers

I'm on my second set of Terra Grapplers. The first set gave me 34k and they are a good bit less expensive than BFG All Terrains, which is what I have always used before. They work well for me. I don't know about the E load rating though.

I have 53K on my BFG all terrain KO's. rotate them every 5K, keep them at 75lbs. have hauled 30 loads of hay in the three years the've been on the truck (12K a load) lots of trips to the deer lease with my atv in the bed. hauling round bales in the bed and burnouts when I have looney loaded.

I could have bought Nitto's for $200 less but no one was getting better than 35-40K miles out of them. Like I said, I have 53K on them now and can probably get another 10 with whats left. If buying the Nitto's I would be near my second set,

I'm the only vote for the Dura's but I LOVE my tires. They have seen all weather conditions, pulled a few trailers and I can't say enough good things about them

Oh yeah, they have a 50k warranty too IIRC. Talk to Mat with Discount tire direct (they are a sponsor here), he'll tell you more about them

Here's some pics

I appreciate your post. I have always got high mileage from BFG's and have always ran them on all my trucks. My wife's Expedition had a set on for 60k before we replaced them. This is my first deasel F250, so I didn't know what to expect for tread life. I was told that nobody gets more than about 30k on any tire on these trucks, so I was thrilled that I got 34k on my Nitto's. When I bought my first set, I couldn't afford the BFG's which is what I wanted, and the tire guy ( a friend of mine ) said he was running Nitto's on his truck and most guys were very happy with them. I may go back to BFG's the next time, just to see.
Still though, if you think about it, an extra 15k-16k and $200 more money. I'd say mile for mile it's probably a toss up.

No problem, however I am at 52K now and should get to 62K, thats almost 30K additional miles for $200.00. I struggled with the same decesion.
