I'm loving the Toyo M/T tires


Although they wear pretty quickly might be the driver LOL


Just be prepared with any M/T tire to lose about 1-2 MPG

You mean Nitto Mud Grapplers? The Terra Grapplers are A/Ts. I love the way the Mud Grapplers look! Mean as hael!

IMO, from what Iv been reading, its hard to beat a set of BFG MTs. Personally... Iv never had an MT

I currently have some M/T's on my rig so the MPG loss is already there I have indeed heard a lot of good things about the toyos but like you said, they wear quickly.

fd chief How many miles are you getting out of them nittos?

Im looking for a nice m/t that will last me a good amount of time here in Iowa yet are still good in pavement/dirt/mud/snow and can handle towing
