Decided on Nitto Mud Grapplers

Well I am in the market for some new tires I am currently running 265 which is way to small for my liking so once the new oil cooler is in and all done and I get my Xmas bonus from work I decided to go with a lvl kit and 315/75/16 Nitto Mud Grapplers. I was really leaning toward Toyo MTs but I love the look and sound of the Nittos and heard Toyo MTs are kinda weak in the mud. I know Nittos wear fast compared to Toyo but I dont put many miles on my truck compared to most people. I have had the truck for 14 months and put 7500 miles on it. I know rotation is the key to help the tires last longer so I will prolly rotate them every 1000-2000 miles for good measure. Has anyone ever had any bad experience with the Nittos other then tire wear?

I have but if I was going with that tread pattern I would go with Toyo they have a better track record due to being out longer. There is to many brands that have that pattern.

Both look awesome to me. I drive 1000 miles a week so noise was important to me. That's why I went with the trails. I have heard the muds are really loud.

The mud are loud but you get use to it. Just keep em rotated and you'll have em for awhile.

the mud grapplers are awesome in the mud, but they are loud and rough riding. I don't put too many miles on my truck either, maybe 500 per month, and I'm looking for a change. Yes, they look awesome, but become very tiresome after a while. FWIW, I have 12k miles on mine and they've worn well (probably somewhere around 60% tread left). If you wanted 37 inchers I would gladly sell you mine for next to nothing.
