    I did a quick search on here looking for reviews for this tire but since it is fairly new I would like to get some input on this tire. I am currently looking at these tires on Discount Tires website and for a set of 265 /70 R17 with a out the door price of $826.86 with a 65k mile warranty.
    I will be doing some off road with these tires and would like to know how well they perform.

    IIRC the TG2 is advertised as having siping to full depth of the lug, a marked improvement over the TG1.

    There are a couple of guys on here who have picked them up. I too would be curious to hear how guys are liking them

    This is exactly what I plan on getting once my stocks are worn out. 265/70/17s G2s. I've always loved the TGs so I'm stoked on the new model. :cool:

    Yeah they look really good. I've always heard good thing about Nitto. You can't beat that warranty too.

    I have the first model of the Nitto Terra Grapplers , they are great and very quiet on the street or highway. My next set would be the G2

    I just bought a full set of the G2's in 285/70R17 for my tacoma. I bought the non LT series though. They are nice so far, more road noise than my BFG MT KO2's but not that bad. I have not used them for off-road yet, but i will soon as i get a few more parts in for my truck.

    Thinking about it.
    I have 285/70-17.
    As good as my Bridgestone Alenza 265/70 were on road and noise is comparable on dry roads. Noise tone is different but volume about the same. I think wet traction is better than the alenza.

    They've done great on light mud and snow. Tread cleans out well to keep a good bite.
    Good stability on road. Haven't noticed any excessive sidewall rolling.

    with a 65k mile warranty.. no thanks.. thats a hard ass tire with im guessing less than admirable dry traction performance.

    I had Yokohama YK580 on my Acura TSX and they were garbage for performance with always chirping and breaking traction around corners and stops but had 65k mile warranty..

    I swapped to Michelin Pilot Super Sport with a 35k mile warranty and holy shit are these things sticky.. same noise in the car too.

    I run a C rated Goodyear Duratrac thats maybe going to net 40k miles and im totally cool with that cause they are pretty quiet and handle like a dream in all conditions.

    I wont run a high mile tire on anything I own, the performance sacrifice is not enough to warrant it.

    My roommate just bought the G2's for his tundra after he admired my G1's on my taco. He loves them, and he drives a LOT as he is a residential/commercial appraiser. Said he likes how they drive better than the BFG's he had before. Plus they look pretty damn good on his rock warrior

    Well got an appointment in the morning at a local tire shop. The owner is a member at the Credit Union I work at and he got me a good deal on a set. I'll post a few pics of the tires when I get them put on.

    I upgraded my tires today from stock dunlops to terra grappler g2 tires. they are p265/70/17 41lbs each. I originally went in to get cooper at3 b/c of the ebay discount tire $100 off + $70 mail in rebate. They didn't have them in stock and talked me into these, after giving me $170 off instantly in store! Pretty sweet deal at $669.08 out the door and a 65k mileage warranty. I didn't get the hazard warranty today, but i'm sure they'll offer it at the next tire rotation.

    I intentionally went on a cold wet day today b/c I figured they would be more apt to wheel and deal. I'd say they helped me out for sure. So far the ride seems smoother, there is more highway noise but that's a given due to the more aggressive tread than stock.

    I'm at 59,1xx miles right now so we'll see how they hold up. I'm surprised at the life of the stock tires, but my commute is 99% highway.

    They've handled well in the rain so far, time will tell.

    You might not get a chance to get the hazard warranty. If I remember, when I ordered mine from discount, they said the only time to get it is the point of purchase. I could be blowing smoke though, but I feel like I remember having that conversation

    They offered it to me on my old truck, under similar circumstances, however that was probably 6 years ago. They also sold me a road hazard warranty on the stock tires when I took the tacoma it in the first time. I'm not sure what the cost was thought. I'll give them a call and ask, I'm sure they won't mind making some more money. Thanks for the heads up!

    A fine looking tire.

    Dig the FJ Alloys as well. They always look good on the Tacoma, especially in gunmetal.

    5k miles so far, seem to do just fine, great in snow, got the all terrains for better mileage, will try something more aggressive next time. Did just fine in the desert, mud was a little slippery [​IMG]

    Louder than MT KO2's? did you mean the AT KO2's??

    I am also curious about the G2s I have a set coming in this week. I was running the KO2s which I have to say I like the look better but having issues so trying a new set. I would like to know how the G2s hold up on snow and such.
