Anybody running the "Nitto Terra Grappler AT" and like them?

Looking to replace the stock tires with something good.

I tow a 32 foot travel trailer also. Just want something solid to replace the crappy Michelin tires that have chunks missing out of them.:thankyou2:

I highly recommend the Terra Grappler. I've owned about 7 or 8 sets and they will replace the crappy michelin tires on my truck.

What kind of mileage are you getting out of the Terra Grapplers?
I rarely get more than 30,000 miles from a set of tires. Just too much towing. At least this set of Michelins is a little over 40,000 miles. So thats 30% better tread life than I've gotten from Toyo, Goodyears or Conti's

They are expensive but we do them all of the time. Michelin LTX A/T tires mount and balance so nicely and ride good too. I think 8 out of 10 tires don't need any weight to balance them.

I need a tire that can handle towing. The stock Michelin tires are crappy off road also.

I have Cooper Discoverer S/T MAXX and they have hardly worn. A guy I know who pulls a stump grinder everyday with his 6.0 got 50,000 mi out of his.

Don't forget Hankook ATm's. Best AT I have ever owned. Quite, ride nice and best of all great in ice and hard packed snow. I only tow a 26' boat but these are E rated at 3,750 lbs. The Duratrac's side wall are to soft for towing. I was going with them but if you search you well find out that, that is the only real complaint on these.

Tera grapplers are a d rated tire. You should get an E rated tire for towing. I have Mickey Thompson Baja Atz's 35"

There are a lot of factors that go into tire wear and performance,

putting tires designed for 9"or 10" rims on our stock 8" rim causes a squeeze on the tire and results in tread squirm under loads such as towing. If you are empty all the time, the wear is not as noticible. If you are looking at wider tires, then consider wider rims.

as mentioned the Dura-tracs have a softer sidewall. I had some problems with the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires on my 2006. They were fine during the colder months, but once summer heat arrived and I was towing in 100° heat, The sidewall bulged out and destroyed the tires. It left a bad taste in what had other wize been a great tire. If you are not towing very heavy, they are a great tire. But I would not use them with a big 5th wheel or GN horse trailer for summer use.

Cooper and some of the other tires mentioned above, just don't offer much in 20" rim sizes. So those of us with the 20" rim size are limited to what tires we can put on our OEM rims. If towing or hauling heavy loads we are kind stuck with the stock tire size 275/65r20 or the plus size 285/65r20 BF Goodrich or the 295/65r20from Nitto. At least if we care about tread life and how long a tire last while towing.

I ran Nitto Terra Grappler AT on my 08 Duramax and got 35k out of them. I'm running 305/55/20 load range E Falken Wild Peak AT now and really like them so far. Have 7k on them now. They come with a 50k limited warranty, very limited I'm sure and max load of 3195 pounds per tire. They were much cheaper than the Nittos. Good luck.

I've got terras on mine too. Nice tire. They are loud compared to the stockers, but the stockers are really lousy, in my experience anyway.
