    nobody got pics with grapplers on their first gen? I've read alot...some like em some don't...I don't plan to do much off-roading...I just like the look of the grapplers.

    anybody got some pics?....preferrably on a silver double cab....factory wheels possibly?

    thanks

    I think I have only heard of a couple people who have had bad tire wear with the TG's. As far as puncturing more easilly, it depends on the load ratting of the tire. A "C" range tire WILL puncture more easilly than an "E" or "D" range.


    OP....I cant find pics, but I have been quite happy with the Nitto's. Better than the BFG AT's as far as traction on and off road.

    ^^^ to go along with chris's statement that not too many have had bad things happen with them.... from the research i did before i got mine, it was the heavier trucks (f-150s and bigger) that were having fast wear with them. all of the guys in tacomas, frontiers, etc. said they had good tread life.
