Toyo Open Country M/T vs Nitto Mud Grappler

Which do you guys prefer and why?

I have had the Toyo's and like them a lot but I have never had the Nittos. How are they on ride, durability, performance and road noise?

I had 35x12.50/20's on my 99. They were loud as hell! My wife could hear me coming 2 miles away. They actually were starting to annoy me. I recently traded the truck in so that took care of that.

I have the nitto trail grapplers and was thinking about the toyo when I need new tires. I have 7k on the nittos and only 30% left. Hate them.

Toyo MT's and nitto mud graps are two way different tires. The mud grapplers are real loud, sometimes hard to balance and my buddy got about 20k miles out of a set on a 1500 ram. They look cool though lol. But the trail graps and toyo m/t's are very similar. The toyo's have more siping which will help in rain and ice but the trail graps have a more aggressive sidewall that has two different sidewalls so you can pick which one u like when you mount them. The trails use to be cheaper but I think they are about even with toyo's.

The Open Country M/T is a better road tire than the Mud Grappler. A better comparison would be to the Trail Grappler. I went with the Open Country M/T because of word of mouth and almost every truck in the diesel truck magazines have them, so something must be right.

You can order Trail Grapplers from Walmart and they are pretty cheap. Their 295/70-18 TG's are $288 a tire.

Toyo Open Country M/T vs Nitto Mud Grappler

I like my bf Goodrich rugged terrain. The price was hard to beat for a great tire!

I've had both and the Toyo's are far superior. The Nitto's were on a different truck, there is no way that I would put them on a truck this heavy. You should get E rated Toyo Open Country MT and you will love them. Also research, purchase, and use Dyna Beads. They are the trick! They keep the tires perfectly balanced all of the time and make them last 50% longer. I have them and they work amazingly well.

The Nitto's develop flat spots over night and will lope for a mile or two before they round out. They are very loud and do not last very long. I would guess that you would only get about 20 k good miles and maybe 30k total. They are softer rubber and I began to develop leaks from rocks or nails after about 20 k. I do not recommend them.
