I've been running a set of Trail Grapplers for the last (almost) 3 years.
I currently have a little over 41k on them and they should get me at least another 10k, maybe 15k. And I have done a lot of towing this past year also.
I had ProComp extremes on the truck before these and got 48K out of them but they started cupping on me at aroud 38k. So I have made sure to rotate the Nittos every 3k (5k at the most) and they have worn nice and evenly.
The Nittos aren't directional so I'm able to cross rotate them where as the ProComps were directional so could only do front to rear rotations.
To me these tires are quiet. Especially considering the aggressive tread they have. They are a lot quieter than the ProComps.
And when balanced right they are smooth.
I also wanted to add, and to me this was the biggest reason I didn't go back to the ProComps. When I was running the ProComps they were BAD about hydroplaning on me. It got scary a few times when I was in traffic and hit some standing water. I thought they were gonna slide me right off into the median on the interstate once. It got to where I really didn't like drivng my truck when it was pouring down rain. With the Nittos it's all good. They actually feel like they want to dig down into the water if you hit it a puddle as opposed to skidding across the top.
