mud grapplers will wear faster then the other two. Trails are a good cross between a AT and a MT, expect 30-40k miles out of a set if your not towing 10k+ lbs all the time. I just got the Toyo's, so far I like them. Have around 360 miles on them so far. Good friend has a dodge and same tires, has oer 30k on the set and they still look good.

Forget what magozone I was reading, but they did a comparison between all 3 Nitto's. Pretty sure it was a jeep mag, but between the 3, best all around was the terra grapplers. In the comparison was rock, sand, mud, street, and they did a Db reading in the cab.

Take it for what it is, I choose the toyo since they were in stock.

toyos all the way.. i had the nitto trail grapplers and they didnt seem to self clean in the snow to well n they like to hydro plain when you hit puddles, the nitto mud terrains are okay, they are LOUD, my buddies say when i pass them on the express way it sounds like a small jet plane taking off, they wear so fast n are hard to balance, they are great in the mud i havent tried them out in the snow yet.... friend of mine has the same truck as me and has the toyo m/t n holy sh*t! he can go through everything he wants to, by far the best tires you can get in my opinion.

I can agree with this. I had the mud Grapplers on my last f250 and they wore out quick and started looking like **** by the time I sold it. Granted I didnt rotate them enough. I loved the way they look new. But the Toyo m/t's look damn good too

Toyo MT's all the way! Great traction on and off road and most people report around 40-50k miles by the time the tires are wore out if they're not towing extreme amounts.
