Comments! Nitto Terra Grappler anyone?

ok so ya, do to something's I *might* not be getting a new truck, i might have to keep this one for another like 10 months. Its gonna need new tires soon i drive to damn much and damn near wore out my BFG's by the end of winter or mid winter i need new tires.

I run the 265x75x16 and like anyone else knows the prices on these tires are HUGE and HORRIBLE.

well BFG A/T like anyone else knows the cheapest is like $721.75 shiped to my door from summit

NOW i have found the Nitto Terra Grappler for $555ish shipped to my door for the 256x75x16. HAS ANYONE owned or know anyone that has owned these tires how do they do? i need like an A/T tire i dont offroad any more and MT's suck in snow so ya. and also i dont want comments on any other tires just on the Nitto! I just want to know because saving $167ish dollars is nice...keep in mind i own a tire mounter and balancer so i dont pay for that crap lol...

here is a pic of it btw





I have owned the BFG a/t sick of it time for something else now and its cheaper sounds like a start!

My friend had them on his silverado, rode good for an A/T but they wore out really quick, might be the way he drives though.

one of my old installers got 35k out of his 33's on a lifted silverado 2 years ago. do they still sell that style nitto? i thought they changed the grappler to that new style with the flames on the sidewall?

Friend of mine had em, they wore out too quick. He had em on a yota and he wasn't a harsh driver. He had em in 33x12.5x15's too, and he never did burn outs. They lasted maybe 30k before they were too bald to drive in snow. WAY to quick.

I hear they are a soft compound though, thats a contributing factor.

honestly? ive never heard anything super spectacular about them. it usually went to where people who didnt know about tires and wanted a mix of economy and a cool looking tire would get the nittos opposed to the BFGs or the Michelins cause of price. that was my main observation, but ive never heard any complaints either. once there was a gentleman who had to change a larger rim size variety tire like 4 times (quality return type of thing), but i dont think it was the tires fault, i think it was something on the vehicle/rims. that was the worst experience i had seen with them.

i didnt see too many return purchasers on them as well...

thats good to know Gil thanks, my main concern is Snow traction because even tho my BFG's wore out fast the snow traction is ungodly for a 2wd truck and i dont think i would want to sacrifice that but then again $700+ for them idk if i want to pay that agian

i know they have one hell of a sidewall. Getting them on and off wheels are sometimes tough. most of the trucks that i have put them on are superdutys, or something larger, and they said they gotten pretty nice wear and mileage out of them. cant really vouche for the snow traction because hey, im in florida. but they see, to be a quality tire.

dune graps my choice if i go with an a/t daily tire once the sas goes in.

i was looking at the nittos too as a replacement. started to read reviews on some tire site..forgot which one. the main complaint was that they wore out quickly.
they are 129 for 265's at 4wheelparts, for 143 i can get swamper trxus MT's.

They are "okay" as far as looks in person. My dads friend with a newer chevy 2500 has them. Before dad made a choice in getting his baja ATZ's for the SD, we were looking at them. To us they look more like a goodyear street tire.

ive got them, amazing tires......i had bfg a/t's before them and IMO they surpass them by far, at the moment i have about 35k on them, they still look like new, yes worn alittle but not bad at all, note, i do drive like an ******* alot of times cause i get bored, they are surprisingly good in mud and great in sand, last winter when i was home in NY my 4wd was not working and these tires were great in the snow and i was driving in about 1-1.5 ft of snow with no problem........

I saw a couple sets of them at the tire shop yesterday while I was gettin' some lower balljoints done, and I think they look pretty cool, I haven't reall thought about putting them on my truck though, not for any bad reasons, just because I was looking for something more aggresive, darn A/Ts don't cut it around here.

i have the Nitto Terra Grapplers.. a/t's... they are nice, really agressive compared to other ATs.. about 4-5k? little wear at all.. but they dont start w/ a huge amount either lol...
they are doin better then my last good years.. but then again im 4"+ above where i was last time, so i drive a little bit nicer

i want my next set to b the mud grapplers or the bfg? extreme terrain.. or mb they are the Pro comp ones..
