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.

5.0 great look

5.0 Good Looks!

I never did drive them in the mud like they're meant to but I did drive in the snow a lot and right away I noticed a big difference in grip compared to my previous All-Terrains. Aside from the better performance, there's also good looks, great pricing and surprisingly quiet for what they are.

Q: I have a 2008 Toyota 4Runner with a 2.5" leveling kit already that I purchased from you actually with a set of BF Goodrich All Terrain tires (285R18). My tires are done and want to switch to Nitto for a more aggressive look but i want wider tires, whats the widest I could go? I think that if i go 295 the tires won't fit or will rub too much. Thoughts? Thanks Answer this question

A: Hello Rudy, I would suggest going no wider than a 285. Anything wider and you will need to cut some of the wheel wells and bumper. Thank you.

Q: I know I can have a LT285/65/R18 on my 2014 Silverado (2.5 in leveling kit), do you have a recommendation on the backspacing of the wheel I should get. I am thinking no less than 5. Answer this question

A: Hello Joe, Thank you for asking. If you would like a factory look with the wheels tucked under and away from the fender wells, go with a 5.75". If you like them flush or slightly sticking out, go with a 5" backspace.
