The Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires are designed to provide exceptional all-terrain traction for use both on and off road, in all weather conditions. The computer designed tread features tread coupling blocks for improved traction and handling, high-density sipes for excellent traction on snow and wet weather conditions, and slant grooves for outstanding wet traction and braking, all in an aggressive looking package. The Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires are constructed with two-ply, high turn-up polyester sidewalls for extra strength and durability, along with two wide steel belts to increase tread contact and puncture resistance.
I put a set of these on a 2016 Ford Explorer. These tires turn a piece of junk Ford Explorer into a decent riding/handling vehicle. Quite a bit more road noise than a Michelin but not bad. Traction in rain or slick conditions has been great. The off-road capability is terrible in the Explorer but the more aggressive tread of the Nitto is noticeable and an improvement. There is a hill in my back yard that the Explorer couldn't climb with the factory Michelins and now it goes right up. Overall the Nitto is a good value for the money. By the way the Explorer is a company vehicle, I would never buy one after my experience with this one and it really is a piece of junk with a weak 4WD system. However since these tires did improve the vehicle I'm sure you will be satisfied purchasing them for your vehicle.
