    I have 31 in. dune grapplers with 18 in. rims(which are very nice) I'm getting 33 in. tires. My problem is that the only tires that fit 18 inch rims are Nitto Mud Grapplers($100 more than most mud tires) Should I get the Nitto Mud Grapplers $285 or Procomp mud-terrains $175 w/ 16 in. rims $195?

    Do you need the mud tires? The Nittos are a good mud tire, but the people I know that are running them are only getting 20,000 miles out of them before they are shot.

    I wanted that kind of look for my truck, I have seen the all terrains, but I really want the Procomp mud terrains, do you know any other tires i could get for a good price?

    Do the Procomp tires have a short tread life?

    I currently have a 2.5 in. toytec lift with 31.5 in. Nitto Dune Grapplers. I'm going to get new 3 in. spacers to help make room for the tires so i am getting 33 in. mud tires, i was told nitto mud grapplers don't last long and procomp is terrible so now what are my choices?

    They're pricey, but I've heard the Firestone Destination M/T have good tread wear for a mud tire.

    Toyo MT's are pricey,but the sweetest extreme MT tire out there IMHO.
    I work for a tire company and we are a Toyo Dealer. I have a set
    of 33x12.50r18 Toyo Open Country MT's on a pallet in the back of the warehouse with my Tacos name on them! Now just need the lift to make them fit! thats coming.

    Toyo m/t and nitto mud grapplers seem to be the only tires to fit my 18 inch rims
