Nitto Grapplers

I am going to get new tires here in the near future and I want to know what knowledge and experience people have with Nitto Grapplers.

They look like a great tire and have a good aggressive tread pattern.

I just want to know how they do in mud, snow, dirt, rain, and tread life.

Also the guys who are running them can you post pictures.

Thanks

-Jake

I love the look of terra grapplers but I was told by two different tire guys the Toyo Open Country seems to last longer. They are both made by the same company and I think same materials but he just said it was the darnedest thing to see that.

I have zero complaints about the mud grapplers, not sure that is what your talking about or not.

wear is so so, considering a mud tire
rain they are good in
sand good
mud good
snow, not sure yet
wear i have 6k on them still look new.

Get these Jake out off all the tires you have been looking at this is far and away the best bet.

I have had no trouble at all with mine. Had them in sand, mud and snow. Clean out well and ride pretty good.

Ive never had them, but I put them on the pops suburban. From a wear standpoint, we sold a lot of em when I worked at discount tire and I had never seen a problem with them coming back in.

Nick, have have you liked your tires so far?

Also I take it that white lettering out isnt an option on these tires?

Their site says no, but they did at one point. I had a set of 33/12.5/15 a few years ago. They were OK, but I wasn't all that impressed with them.
