nitto terra graplers vs trail graplers

I'd like to know too. My truck came with the desert grapplers- badass looking tire! I don't go off road ever so they're good for me. They're very very quiet on the roads and highways and have been wearing slowly- I rotate every oil change.

My terra grapplers get stuck on wet grass and with a little over 20k miles on them they are about wore out. I'm going to a set of toyo mt's next.

I have the trail grapplers and I'm very happy, I don't do very much off roaring but they have done good the little I do do.....I have the terra on my last truck (Chevy Colorado) and those did great sand, mud, snow I did it all....but I'm not sure how much of a difference the size of the truck makes

Ive had Terras in 305/55/20...then i traded that truck...Tires were great....not much for offroad conditions, but road manners were good and did well in wet surfaces.
Ive got Trail grapplers on my Jeep and i really like them. lots of traction. Fairly aggressive M/T, but not obnoxious on the highway. we have 25k on them so far and probably half tread or better. Keep in mind not on a heavy truck, but Id for sure by them again.
On my DUTY i have 35" Mud grapplers. I like em. they are a little noisy, but it doesnt bother me. Only have 8000 miles on them, but so far the wear is perfect and i dont think ive used my 4 wheel drive at all, when i used to have to in places hunting, etc....

Overall the Trails would be my choice over and over again. My bro in law just purchased a set for his silverado after i bought mine and hes had good luck with them as well.

Re: nitto terra graplers vs trail graplers

I have cooper at3s. I like the road noise, slim to none and they look pretty good. I got the from tiremonkey.com. 285 75 r16. I would compare them to a terra grapler and there made in good USA. Oh and there 10 ply.

I had Terra's on my old F150--great looking, great riding, I put ~30,000 on them, before I sold it, and they wore very well. I was NOT happy with snow, or wet performance thought, they were terrible. I never took them off road much, so I cant comment on that aspect.
