Terra Grappler or Trail Grappler?

Getting close to having to put new tires on my F250. I currently have 295/70r18 (34.6" Diameter) Terra Grapplers and I am debating on switching to Trail Grappler. I love the Terras and the MPG with them. Should I expect a MPG drop if I upgrade to the Trail Grappler?

Also, anyone think a 36-37" would fit well without rubbing on a 4" BDS lift and if so, would the MPG drop a ton by the 2" diameter gain? And if you have ran either of these tires, can you please post the lifespan? I want to get the most bang for my buck!

Thanks!

My experience with any of the Nitto tires on an f-250 is that the ride is pretty sweet because they are made of a little softer compound but unfortunately, the life span is less than desireable especially the Terra Grapplers. The Toyos are a lot better from a mileage standpoint.

Trail Grappler gets my vote. I love its aggressive design and off-road performance. But if you are on the road most of the time, Terra would be a better choice for you.

On road or off road?? Looks or function?? I run the Trails now just a bit louder over the Terras. I can't complain when I have MUCH better traction.

I like the trails, little off topic, but are you running that size tire with a 4inch lift? If so can you post some pics...

I had 295 70 17 terra grapplers on my 2009 Chevy 2500. Got like 37k or so out of them. I didn't run them til they were bald though. That was probably about 30k of back roads/city driving too.
