Nitto Mud Grapplers

I am looking at some 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers ..... Any thing I should be aware of? Are they good tires? Will they last?

I would say DO NOT BUY THEM. My buddy ahd them on his 05 f-150 and they lasted 8000 miles, thats it. That was even wearing them past safe limits too. He has a set of toyo open country m/ts on it now only has 3000 miles and they look perfect so i dont think it was the truck. They are a super soft rubber from what i felt. Work good on a purpose built rig for rocks or something but not ment for the high way. its like riding and a twin prop 6 seater air plane... not enjoyable.

You also might want to check out the Kuhmo M/T. I have them on my truck and so far im very happy with them. They ride nice, theyre not too loud and theyre wearing good. Ive had them for about 5K miles now and theres no noticeable wear on them.

this is very true... i have a buddy that has them on an 07 duramax, 35s w/ a 6 in lift, and they are very very loud and wore badly (though i don't know how often he rotated them). if you buy them make sure you rotate often

I like mine. put them on at 30,000 miles and now i have 77,000. I have had good luck with the nitto mud grap's just keep them rotated and check the air. I know yall might not beleive me, but its true. maybe get almost 5-8,000 more out of them! just make sure your truck is alined and toe-in is correct. mine was off from the factory!

I have 7k and a couple burnouts on mine and they stll look great. Im only hoping for 25-30k out of them. After all they are a mud tire. They are loud but they handle the wet pavement better then I thought. It didnt take much to spin the factory Goodyears when the streets got wet and I have to really try to spin these. They have been great for me in offroad conditions so far. I will probably run them again. Plus I think they are the best looking tire out there.

I've got around 35,000 on mine and they are wearing great. Keep em rotated and air pressure (like any tire) and they will last you a good while. Mine are a bit over half life left in them. I'm going to run them till hunting season and then get some new ones.
