Nitto Mud Grappler's!

Well Nitto came out with some new sizes now they make the Nitto Mud Grappler's in 33X13.5R15's. So I might think about gettting these over the BFG M/T's. They make them for rims sizes 15"-22" now. When they first came out you could only get them for 17's and up.

I cant find a price but National Tire & Wheel sells the 35X14.50R15 for $266 so it should be alittle cheaper it says to call for the 33's. EDIT: they are $214 each

my friend has some swampers and i dont think theyre all that bad. they do ride rough but loudness isnt bad. and besides, who buys a mud terrain for highway manners?

nitto makes one of the best mud tires. they are worth the money. if i still had the little ranger id be thinkin of tryin to run 13.50s right now.

They most likely get pretty good milage since they are Nittos, plus I hate the dunlops.

I think they just came out with the smaller tires within the past month

Here is all the sizes and prices from Discount Tire (may be able to find them cheaper but are hard to find):

My brother-in-law has some on his CJ. They are very nice if you can afford them. Thats the only thing that I find wrong with them is the price. But its Nitto. What do you expect. Good find Andy.
