Some tire feedback

So I know there have been some controversial threads out there on some of these tires. So I went back and looked at some of our tire history.

2006 F 350 - Nitto Terra Grappler AT 19,000 miles 0-1/32nd
2006 F 350 - Nitto Trail Grapplers 23,000 miles 2-3/32nd
2004 F 250 - Cooper Discovery AT - 76,000 miles 0/32nd Ready to pop haha
2003 F 350 - General Grabber AT - 61,000 miles 1-2/32nd (this truck ALWAYS has at least 2500 lbs on it as stationary equipment).

My "play/work" truck the 06 needs new tires. So I went with the 35x12.25R20 General Grabber ATs this week. Mounted they are about the same size as the Nitto Trails in 35x12s. They measured only about 1/8" wider and came in exactly at 35" high. Where my Trails were 36" high when new.

We have a lot of towing coming up this winter so I suspect miles will be racked up quick so I will keep documenting and providing feedback. So far these tires make no noise as they shouldnt. Feel a lot more sturdy than the nittos with a 7500 trailer attached (no wobble like both sets of nittos)

I miss the aggressive sexy look of the nittos but hope mileage makes that up!~

I had Terra Grapplers before, and I got 40k out of them with rotating them often.

Rare! I own a lift, rotated at each oil change. Nittos going to junk has been the story for many.

You did VERY WELL getting 40k for sure!

Not sure. There are SO MANY reviews online of them just being junk. I have no clue why I gave them two shots.
