Nitto opinion

Hey everyone.... It is time for tires and I have looked all over and the opinion from the stores is that I need to put Nitto terra grapplers on my truck, E rated 10plys. I was looking at discount tire and the reviews are all over the place. I spend 80% of my time on the roads. The rest of the time is fields, river roads, etc. Can anyone put my mind at ease for spending almost $800 on these, or give me a better bang for my buck. Thanks

The Nitto Terra is a very popular tire, which can last a long time. I have one friend that just replaced his afyer 70,000 miles. Granted he rode them to the bone, but they did last. He replaced them with the exact same tire.

I had a set on my Dodge Ram and loved them on road but was not so crazy about them off road.

I just got an F350 in January and this time went with the new Nitto Trail. Only time will tell how long they last but I have little doubts about their off road ability when compared to the Terra.

As for Discount Tire Direct, they answered every question I had, very quickly, gave me the best price, the best warranty, free shipping (which was also very fast) and made me feel like they cared about me as a customer....something lacking from most places these days. Matt is simply awesome to deal with.

Bottom line, I do not think you can go wrong with any Nitto

For as much time as you spend on the pavement, go with the Nitto Dura Grapplers . You'll get more life out of them, and they are great in ALL conditions (I've been in all of them). No other tire will be on my truck

I have been running the Terra for 27K miles and the are a good street tire. I don't find them very good in mud at all. I will probably go with the Trail Grappler next time around.

I sure like the Dura Grapplers I put on mine!!

Only about 5K miles so far, but they sure are quiet and smooth. Still look brand new too!!
