The all-new Trail Grappler M/T 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. For off-road performance, the sidewall combines a 3-ply high turn-up construction with a thick rubber compound that cushions the tire and helps prevent punctures. On the tread surface, the blocks are configured to provide additional biting edges that command lateral stability and enhance forward traction. For on-road comfort, Nittos engineers used advanced sound analysis equipment to reduce the noise levels commonly associated with off-road tires. The internal construction and tread design also help optimize tread life. Two wide steel belts provide a stable base for the tire and increase tread strength. This advanced construction provides optimal uniformity and reduces irregular wear.
These tires are great! Have had friends buy the Nitto Mud Grappler and love the functionality, but hate the lifetime of them. One friend had his mud graps go bald within ten months! The trail grapplers have lasted me a year so far, and have shown little signs of wear and still hold their cosmetic beauty. If are considering an off road tire, but don't want to waste money because of tread life, these are for you. Im a very picky person, and usually do extensive research, and these will definitely be my next tire purchase after the current ones go bald!

All around great tire
They are great in any type of soil!! I have loved how quiet they are. Only problem is that they throw rocks once you get up to speed.

Nitto Trail Grappler
I just bought these for my '06 F150 after a LONG time reviewing tires online. Although I didn't really need a mud tire like this I wanted them! I spent a little extra money on the trail grapplers after reading a ton of reviews. And I agree with the common pro's of these tires:low road/highway noise despite such a deep tread pattern and the fact that they are a mud tire;great looking tires with an aggressive look;and so far seem to have great grip,although have only been in a little mud so not really field tested yet.
I've only put about 800 miles on them, so as far as tread life I can't say this early. My only hope is that they give me some good miles and don't have any wear issues (like uneven tread wear or wearing quickly). In my opinion so far, I would highly recommend these tires.
BTW, I needed a 2"front leveling kit to fit these 33"ers.
