    I bought some Terra Grapplers in 265/75/16 8-ply and I have had them now for 3 days. Heres my review so far.

    Day 1:

    Went deer hunting and noticed that they rode a little rough but not a fair judgement because I had a 500lb 4-wheeler in the bed. Checked the speedometer against my GPS and it was dead on at 70 mph. I was following my dad in his 08 Chevy 1500 who had trouble going up a steep trail in 4 wheel drive. I hit it hard in 2-wheel drive and went up it just fine!

    Day 2:

    We got 2 inches of snow and the roads going to work where a little sloppy but I thought they were fine. The other drivers thought it was horrible and they all drove like it was a damn blizzard and pissed me off. Never used 4 wheel drive.

    Day 3:

    We got 3 more inches of snow and the roads where covered. I thought I would have a little fun on the way to work and take the back roads and do some slide jobs. I had to WORK HARD to get the ass end of the truck to slide out on me. It took a lot of throttle to slide it and I still have not had to throw it in 4x4. So far I have been way impressed with these tires and I feel like I can go anywhere within reason. My previous tires where Toyo Open Country in 265/70/16. They were a good tire too but after 3 days I am leaning towards the Nitto's. Thanks for reading!

    Aren't they essentially the same tire as the toyo? It is the same company

    Dude, you shoulda got the 6 ply. They would have rode better.

    Oops, just looked them up and they don't make a 6 ply... I was thinking of the toyo's...those come in 6, 8, 10 (C, D, and E)...
