    Hey fellas (and ladies):wave:. Im in the process of getting new tires for the taco. I have 315/70/17 BFG ATs now and there are a little too big. Im either gona get the Nitto Trail Grapplers in 295/70/17 or the Mud Grapplers in 33x12.5x17. They are both about the same price and I was just wondering what yals opinions are. Thanks for the input.

    Do you have a small penis and you want everyone to know? Get the Mud Grapplers.

    Are you a real man and you don't need flashy dumb shit on your tires? Get the Trail Grapplers.

    You asked for opinions. I can't stand the shit Nitto puts on their sidewalls. The Trail Grapplers are the only set I would purchase from them. It's as gay as a barbed wire tattoo.

    Okay. What would you reccomend? I dont really want BFGs again and the duratracs dont come in the size i want. Mickey Thompsons are too expensive.

    mhmm I havnt heard anything positive about the tread wear on the mud grapplers. And arnt baja claws close to the price of mud grapplers? and toyot mud terrains are very nice and have great reviews, both tires I mentioned also have good tread life.

    i have 2 friends one with mud grapplers and the other with trail grapplers and the mud grapplers are on a 2wd jeep and the trail grapplers are on a 97 f250 and they both have the same milage on the tires and the mud grapplers are wearing down way faster even with less weight

    km2s for my vote. Mild street manners, flexy side walls air down super nicely and no where near as loud as toyo MTs or the Mud Grapps

    I can get the 33x12.5x17 mgs for 260 a tire. The Mickeys are like 330 a piece. I really like the toyos but they dont make the size i want and they are also like 330.

    I still recommend the trails. Heard some decent things about them, price is a little prohibitive for me, but if you can afford if and you don't deal with snow, giver shit.

    They offer the terra grapplers in a 305/70/17 but they are not aggressive enough for me. and actually 315 is just a tire that is 12.5 wide.

    Im just worried the mud grapplers will wear too fast for your liking, just like the boggers... soft compound. So if its between those and the trail grapplers i said trail grapplers.

    i know but now that i look at the pic of my truck even those 315/70/17 look kinda small soooo im afraid the 295/70/17 will look ridiculously small.
