I have run BFG All terrain's almost exclusively simply because an old neighbor supplied them at a discounted rate, good grip but they were loud and didn't last more than 35k. I've heard great things regarding the Hankook DyanPro ATM's. I would be looking for the Hankook's or the Dura's.

Just thought I'd update this thread.

I was set on getting NTG again bc of how many miles I got off of them, but I got a GREAT deal on some BFG TA KOs, $675 OTD for the set (285/75/16) and finally swapped out the NTG. There was 5/32s on all 4 Nittos and had them for a total of 75k. I'd recommend them to anyone.

After a few thousand miles, I'll have a really good comparison of the NTG vs. the BFG TA KOs

I have had the Bridgestone Dueler a/t's for about 47k they have been pretty good but they are worn out and I will have to purchase new tires before winter. I am thinking about the NTG's but don't know anyone personally who has them. I like the look but I am more interested in the function of the tires. I cross 2 mountains everyday even in the winter and they can get pretty hairy. The Duelers have done a good job keeping me on the road. I also like to off road a little. How are the NTG's in the snow and mud?

hey OP not trying to jack you’r thread. but i have 30’700 or so miles on my stock rugged fails. and i think they are around 20% tread left but idk anything about % of tread life so. i am kinda wanted to get read of them before winter since i keep reading they suck in snow. how are the terra graps in snow? so you have been in snow some. and how about light off roading? we don’t get snow much and it don’t last but a day usually but i live on a hill and drive way is kinda steep.

Mud they do great because they are a very aggressive a/t but i do really good because i have possi-traction in the rear. Does every 1st gen 4x4 have possi-traction in the rear?

I got My falkens a year ago. I drive about 75 miles a day, 5 days a week. They are still very quiet. they have worked very well in the desert, some mud and when going camping.

OP I have the terra grapplers also Same size as well. they are great for on road and slight Offroad use and use on dirt roads. But From personal experience I wouldn't trust them on a full day Offroad trip where you beat on them. I Offroad light every day to work about 1 mile each way to and from work on just some dirt roads and they are wonderful. The first time I went on an Offroad trip through the Mojave I got a flat tire from a small bush entering my sidewall. My suggestion is if you are offloading enough where you have to air down your tires I'd go for a beefier tire. Hence the reason I am switching because I Offroad more frequently.

Current tread:




Now I want something a little more beefier looking, but I want to make sure I don't lose some of the things I really like about the Nittos: tread life, performance, lack of noise while driving, lack of mpg loss, and cost. If the Cooper Discoverer STTs or Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs can compare in those areas, then I really want to consider switching, if not, then I might just stick with the Nittos.

(I searched and stole a bunch of pics from you guys, hope you don't mind. Take it as a compliment)

Nitto Terra Grappler:


Cooper Discoverer STT:




Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac:



I am a former Discount Tire sales Mgr. and if you can get the Cooper STT Tek3's I would go that route. DuraTracs look great but do not perform well in wet road scenarios. Nitto also makes a new DuraGrappler you could check out. Unfortunately Michelin doesnt make anything that aggressive b/c they own BFG, but if they did they would probably be the best. Once again, check out the Cooper STT Tek's.

i had duratracs loved mine unstoppable in snow and wintery conditions.
the only negative thing is they wander a bit on the highway at least to me it felt that way.

i don't know anything about the stt except they are molded extremely similar to the mickey thompson mtz which is one of the best tires you buy. plus the coopers look seriously bad ass i really want to try a set in 295's.

i don't know about the terra grappler but my trial graps are pretty great tires i have absolutely no complaints yet. i have not had them in deep snow yet though so no experience with that. they will probably be a horrible tire on sand though i just can't see them being very good there at all.

They clean mud phenomenally. They're factory siped so they have better than average traction in wet and cold conditions. And as was said...They look amazing.
