anyone know what tires these may be?

They're on the white rubicon, there's a close up of the "wheel well cutout" but it's still not legible enough, they kinda look like mud grappler tread..

i got a killer deal on some Mud Grapplers. 220 per tire, mounted and balanced, for a 33x11.5x16
everyone else wanted upwards of 250 per. (plus mounting and balancing)

think i should go with it?

I'd say stick with something else for road purposes. I've heard the Mud Grapplers are really soft and wear fast. I'll tell ya I love my MTR's, probably gunna go with them again to be honest. They perform well on the street and in the rocks.

i'm trying to decide between the km2's, mtr's, and the grap's
i've honestly gotten every different answer you could get as far as tread life goes on all these tires.

i spoke directly with a nitto tech and he said with a lighter truck such as mine I should expect 25,000 miles out of them with proper maintenance. He said most of the time when people are getting crap wear out of their grapplers it's because their either running them on a heavier truck or a diesel truck (torque).

i can get them for 960 OTD
i can get the km2's for 1,200
or, the mtr's for 1,100

decisions, decisions.

(noise doesn't bother me, anyways, i love when people know i'm comin)
