Toyo M/T or Nitto Trail Grapplers

Im in need of new tires and would like feedback from anyone running either of these two tires. Ive done alot of reading and these seem to be the most favored of the choises available. I have Nitto Terra Grapplers at the moment but want something new.

Im looking for something that has good wear and that is not noisy. My truck is mainly a highway truck and I dont use it to tow.

Looking at either the 37 or 38 on a 20in wheel
The Toyo offers a 38x13.5x20 load D and a 37x13.50x20 Load E
Both have the same tire diameter. What is the main difference between the two? Should I go with the D or E rating?

And as far as the Nitto's go from what I can see they only come in a 37x12.5x20


Thanks for any input

I bought a set of 37*14.5*20 from a website called stage3motorsports.com. I got the nittos also. Ive had those tires on all of my trucks and love them.

I've run the Toyos 37/13.5/17 on my 04 F350 and have about 20k on em and they are about half worn out. They wear even as far as I am concerned.

Thanks for the input. Are they fairly quiet?

with your weight, id run the E. both seem to be great tires, but the sidewall break down of the d will help cause deathwobble.

Honestly, I can't say they are noisy to me. Can you hear em , yes. But nothing like the BFG MT's IMO that is. I will buy them again when needed. Pricey though.

I run 35x12.50r20 nitto trail grapplers and love them. Ive had them for a year and a half. (not sure the on the mileage) They are wearing perfectly even. I find them very quiet for a MT aswell.

Go with the E rated one. Im pretty happy with my toyos. They seem to be wearing pretty evenly but I dont think they are gonna last as long as some people say they will. Road noise isnt bad at all. They are quieter than my 97 f150s highway tires

I have ran Toyo MT's and have buddies that run the Nitto's. In my personal experience I have had much better luck with the Cooper Stt. They are better in terms of road noise, longevity and are also more bang for your buck in my opinion. Not to mention they are about 20 pounds lighter than the Toyo in a 35x12.5x18 due to the fact that they are narrower.
