    Im about to be in the market for new tires and im torn between if i should stay with nitto TG's or go to Cooper STT's because of the weight difference which would effect gas mileage.

    Any suggestions?

    I like both tires equally but the nitto grappler can still be a heavy tire if you get it in a bigger ply. I personally like the look of the mud tire better so would tell you to choose the Cooper STT's but just my opinion. I have never owned both.

    Welcome BTW!
