    Hey guys,

    I've had my Nitto Terra Grapplers for about 10,000 or so miles, and they are wearing out fast... I believe they had 13 mm tread new and now they are at around 7.5, which is close to almost half of the tread left. I do not offroad, all my miles are on road.

    My questions for you guys are:

    1.) How many miles have you guys gotten out of your Nitto Terra Grapplers?

    2.) For my next tire, what should I get? I do not off road, but I like the more aggressive looking tires. Only looking for all-terrain tires that last a while.

    I had the same issue, I would look into the BGF all-terrain ta/ko's some people are getting well over 50k miles easy out of them.

    I read on other forums how the TG's didn't last. Everyone on here said just the opposite. I also had some co-workers and friends tell me they didn't last also so I wound up getting Yokohama Geolander ATS. From what I've heard and read they last, just not great in the snow. I like the look of them and they were one of the cheapest tires I could find that had a good looking tread. They ride great and quiet too. I've only had them for about a month now though. Here's a close up pic if you're interested.

    They look better in person imo.

    Yeah I've heard of a lot of people getting good life out of BFG AT's, but I've read somewhere that people are complaining about them as well, saying the quality on the tire hasn't been updated and that it isn't as great as it used to be...

    I have been looking into Goodyear Duratracs, the most aggressive looking AT tire that I have seen...

    i think as long as you truck is alined good and you rotate you’r tires every or every other oil change you get lot more miles out of them.

    I've never had good luck with BFG A/Ts, but I thrash them off road. I'm pretty sure I'll get 50-60k out of the Firestone Destination A/Ts I put on my wife's SUV.

    Haven't been off road yet. Only had them about a month now. But a kid that worked at DT when I got them has them on his Dakota and he raved about how well they cleaned themselves out. :notsure: His truck was muddy btw. Seeing them on his truck with a similar wheel helped sell me on these. But I don't really off road much, probably didn't need the 4x4, just love knowing its there when I need it. I would like to do some mild trails, just don't want to do anything too extreme yet.

    I think what they're saying is that they're EXACTLY as great as they used to be, but tire technology has moved on, so they're not always the best bang for the buck compared to some newer designs.

    Still a great tire.
