BFG A/T or Nitto Terra Grapler

Like the title says. Im getting new tires next week, 265/75r16. Should I get BFG A/T or Nitto Terra Graplers and why? I have the nittos right now and loved them, but ive heard great things about BFG A/T so im not sure which one to get. Dont account price into my decision, my parents are getting me my tires so price doesnt matter. I do 90% on road, 10% off road, so dont tell me to get mud terrain

I like the way Nitto's tread looks, but those lightning bolt things on the side wall are hideous. If you're gonna be 90% on road there are better tires out there.

What is the traction compound rating on the BFGs and Terra Graplers? I was also looking at the terra grapplers. The traction rating on my tires I have now is "A" , is there something grippier?

The only way your going to get a real opinion is to find someone that has run both tires. Of course someone would vote for the tires they have on their truck.

i have had 3 pairs of bfg's, one size of which was 285s. The D load rating will make them alittle stiff but they will not wear at all, haha. I have a pair in my garage with useable tread and they have 90k on them, its pretty amazing. I love the terra grapplers and i hear they hook up really well on dirt and pavment, but tend to wear alittle quicker. IMO, both are the top of their game, its just a matter of what you get a better deal on.

Yeah, my dad has Terra Grapplers on his truck and I have BFGs, the BFGs will last a little longer but the ride the same and are both pretty quiet tires. If there is a big price difference I would go with whatever is cheaper, if they are the same go with whatever the BFGs.

I don't know anything about the Nitto's, but the BFG's are the best tire I have ever owned. It is the only tire I have bought more than one set of. They are great on road, in rain, sand, on the trail and do rather well in the mud for A/T's.

If I had to choose between the two and could not pick my current Bridgestone Dueller AT REVOs, then I would choose Terra Graplers, I know BFGs are ok, but everyone and their brother run them. I just hate the way they look and would rather get something a little different.

Spoken like a teenage lemming. This is the stupidest argument I've ever heard. By that argument you shouldn't drive a Ranger as it is a common, popular vehicle.

Bingo..

I've got just under 60k on my factory installed BFG ATs.. I love the treadwear, handling, just about everything about the tires. I will almost certainly spend the $$ to get direct replacements when they (finally) wear out. About the only thing I would consider changing is going for a slight increase in clearance w/ 33x10.5R15's instead of the stock 31's, while I am at it.

They are fantastic in the snow. The AT is available in a very wide range of sizes. Nearly everyone who carries BFG stocks the AT in several sizes; finding a set is trivial.

What about the new Bridgestone Dueler APT? I like how super smooth my Dueler ATs are on the highway and they have plenty of bite when on dirt roads. The new APT is supposed to be pretty good.
