The Trail Grappler® MT blends some of the off-road performance of the Mud Grappler® with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler® to create a tire that is both aggressive and quiet.

  • The 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance.
  • Advanced sound analysis equipment was used to systematically reduce the noises normally heard when driving on off-road tires.
  • Nitto´s proprietary, automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tires. This creates a smooth ride on paved roads.
  • The balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.

I've rated each category of this tire based on what it is compared to its market competitors. So, no, this particular tire is not going to perform wet or dry as well, handle the same, ride as smoothly, be as quiet, or last as long as any given h/t or a/t tire. I digress. I've been running this tire for about a year and a half to the tune of 42K miles. The tire is a 275/70r18E (roughly a 34") and is on a 1/2 ton truck. With the help of nitrogen and regular rotate and balance, the tread depth gauge says I still have just over 37% tread life. I REPEAT, 42K MILES AND 35%+ TREAD LIFE. I'd tell you about all the other tires i've had before, (toyo m/t, cooper stt, goodyear) but that doesn't matter. Fact is, I'm on pace to get 55k miles out of these tires. So, if you do the math, the beloved km2's cost nearly double-- they should get 110k miles, right? Child please. The best value is evident. In conclusion: 1) Last forever (not really, but close) 2) Perform great for what they are-- *disclaimer: I guessed on the snow. I live in the south and have no idea how they do with that. 3) A value for what you get 4) They look incredible 5) The ladies love them-- Get a set of these and a couple puppies. Before you know it, you'll be beating the women off with a stick. 6) Most importantly, don't listen to those BFG-lover guys. They apparently have more money than intelligence.

I am an emergency responder in the mountains and must successfully traverse all types of terrain and weather conditions. This has been a great tire and is really fairly quiet. My only complaint is that it did cost me a couple miles per gallon, and when I get such poor mileage to begin with, that is a factor. I have begun to have problems keeping them properly balanced, most likely due to belt slippage. Time for another pair.

I don't know what these other people are talking about being loud and such... Like one person reviewed is that these are MUD TIRES (M/T) not all terrain. I've had these tires for 60,000 Miles now and still have tread for atleast another 20,000... some of the best wear on a M/T that i've seen. These tires don't growl or whine down the road like a Mud grappler or Super Swamper does either. My Gas did go down also but I did add a 6 inch lift to my truck at the same time :P. so take in consideration this a M/T not A/T.

GREAT all-around tire for off-load use (trails, rock crawling, mud) as well as on-road use. Another reviewer slammed this tire, then went on to praise an "all terrain" tire, which isn't comparing apples to apples. Trail Grapplers are a "mud terrain" tire, not an "all terrain". I have Trail Grapps on my Jeep Wrangler, and I've been impressed with the capabilities. Off road, I keep up with other Jeepers that run more aggressive tires, yet when I drive back home from the trails I don't have unbearable road noise. At highway speed there is a very low level hum that isn't that noticeable. For an all purpose Jeep that is a daily driver yet driven hard off road, these are great tires! If you drive a mall crawler, well you might be happier with a highway radial. Yet if you sometimes go off road and are looking for a great all-around tire, I recommend these. In fact, I just purchased a set of 37s Trail Grapplers and sold my used 35s.
