    Can anyone, that has had these, give me any info on the Nitto Terra Grappler AT's? I am trying to decide on tires and I am exploring options. I have had Nittos on my 06 GTO when I had it and I loved them.

    never had them. I've had two sets of BFG AT's though, and they have both been AWESOME. I'll never buy anything else.

    I had them on my 04 Superduty and loved them. They were great in all conditions and Discount Tire Direct had a great price on them. I will buy another set when I need tires

    Can't really comment on them yet, but I just had a set installed this week, and so far I love them. They have handled the snow/slush great this week since we've gotten 1-2" per day since they were installed.

    Best price I found online after TONS of comparing was discounttiredirect.com...

    Have a friend with them on his F-150, they're not bad. Not too impressed with them in the snow but he didn't really get stuck. They've got a nice road tread on them and I think the rubber is a little tougher than BFG's. I'm kinda partial to BFG A/T's or Wildcats, quality is hit or miss on the BFG's though. BFG's have sidewall tread, and despite a softer rubber, the taco is still fairly light, so they last a while. Get some meaty ones :) I've got over 40k miles on my BFG KM2's and they've still got over 50% tread on them!

    I used to run BFG's exclusivly, and the first time I tried the Nitto's, I was hooked. I ran them on all my trucks, with great results. They are a good tire.

    I have them now. 62k on them so far. They're super quiet on the road. I've used them in mud, snow, sand, and dirt, overall handles well. Haven't done any major rock crawling though.

    I love mine, have put about 25k on them and the yshow very little wear if any. They are quiet on the road, handle great in everything, they do fine in winter driving. They dont grip too good when snow wheeling tho (mainly hillclimbs), even aired down to 15psi, but I have never got truly stuck. They are a great tire,and I will buy them again :cool:

    A friend with a 3rd gen 4Runner has the Nitto TG's and he loves them. He went through lots of mud with the tires and he never got stuck.

    But as for me, I'm happy with my GY Duratracs.

    I upgraded to Nitto Terra Grapplers when my dad I swapped wheels. I went up to the 265/75/16 size and I love them. I've put about 5,000 miles on them so far and am completely happy.

    They do great in the rain and don't seem to be hard tires in the cold. They were superb in the deep snow, slush, and ice when I was in North Carolina for a snowboarding trip. My 2WD handled it like a champ with the Terra Grapplers deflated down to 25PSI.

    And to top it all off, I think they look nice. Which is always the last qualifier for a tire IMO. Just a nice bonus.

    The NTGs were on the truck when I got it and probably halfway worn so haven't had new ones. They did handle rain great, handled sand fine without airing down and were quiet on frwy. They sucked a bit in mud due to being worn most likely but didn't get stuck. Got about 30k out of what appeared to be about half of the tread before swapping to GY Duratracs. I do more frwy than offroading so depending on how the tread lasts on the Duratracs, I may be going back to the NTGs whenever the Duratracs are done. They are definitely a bit cheaper for a set than the same size GYs. My NTGs did not have near the tread those do in the pic above a few posts up when I got the truck.

    I am thinking about getting these tires, but what load rating should I get and why. I was thinking E for longer tread life, but I was also thinking C for a lighter tire. Are the "E" rated tires that much heavier?

    Had them on my F-150 and loved them. Will buy them again when I can convince the boss that I need a lift, bigger tires, and new wheels. :thumbsup:
