Nitto Tires

Hey there,

I was just wondering what you guys thought of nitto tires. I am looking for something a little more aggressive than my wranglers and the nitto Trail grapplers seem to fit the bill.

1) how do they perform road/offroad?
2) how long do they last?

Thanks.

Had some on my last ride, loud as hell, but looked good and performed even better. Didn't have the truck much longer after getting them, so no help on the life.

awesome thanks for the info guys.

Now onto my next question. I am moving to a snowy area this winter and need something good on the road and in the snow. Will the trail grapplers be overkill?

Ive had nitto terra grapplers on two of my vehicles. 355/75-20's and 355/75-18's. Very very good tire. Good in snow, offroad, great wear 40,000+ ive gotten outta my sets if ya rotate em every other oil change. I never took my trucks "offroad offroad" in deep mud etc so no help there. But overall a great tire and bought my last set from discount tire.

@BB 250 yea that sounds like the mud grappler. Just saw some trail grapplers today and man do they look mean. Makes me want them even more but im thinking a level or lift might be in order first.

From my experience, I've had 55,000 miles out of a set of Terra's on a gasser Dodge 1500, I havent heard such good things about them on heavy Fords... Said Dodge was chipped and those tires did not like it when it was wet. However when I bought my 250 it had a new set of Trail Grappers on it, they have 12,000 on them so far, they look great and perform well when they need to, wet/mud/snow. Will they last near 50, no... Will they look badass trying, yes!!

25k on mine and looks like I can get at least 25k more out of them. They are starting to get loud after the last rotate. They track well for a mud tire. Great Highway manners. Great offroad, thats where they really shine. Only thing about them is that I can't get them to balance all the way. Which drives me crazy cause I spend a lot of time on the highway. Could just be my tires, although I've had 4 replacement tires, which are way better than the originals that I got.
