    dont have experience with the nittos or the hankooks but when i was buying tires those were the 3 that i was considering. They all seem pretty good. I went with the grabbers and i couldnt be happier. Aggressive look and they perform well in my opinion. havent done heavy off roading but the little ive done i have no complaints. They performed well in the snow as well. Im impressed with the wear also. Probably have 10,000 miles on them and they look brand new still. They have my vote.

    cool thanks buddy, i have experience with nitto in the past but i havn't really delt with general. My only concern is safety... you think they are a good tire all around besides from look and wear.. meaning for the family dont want a blowout or anything!!!

    I love my hankooks. Great on road and off. Just not good for mud. So far they've held up well with rocks too.

    i've had the nitto's on a different truck, great tire, but more expensive than the hankooks.

    this time around i went with the hankooks, mostly because just about everyone on this forum who has them, loves them. i literally drove my new taco home from the dealer and sold the crappy dunlops the next day, and put the hankooks on. like i said, they are cheaper than almost any other comparable tire.

    i only have 1000 miles on mine so far, so i can't really give you an informed opinion. need to see how they perform this winter, but i am expecting great things from them.

    good luck with your decision.

    I think all 3 of those are good choices. I have the Nitto Terra Grapplers and I love them. I like the aggressive look and they are not too noisy - there is some road noise though, but you get that from just about every AT tire.

    I have had my gradders for about 18 months and I can't complain about them.

    They are a very good tire in the snow. I have them on my truck ( 33 x 12.50) and on the wifes Rav4 ( 215....).

    I will run either MTZs or Red Labels next time, but thats only because I want a little more agressive tire.

    Good luck
