How many miles do you get out of your Trail Grapplers or Toyo M/T's?

I'm looking for the better tire. It's hard to tell just because of everyone's opinion. Wanting to run 35's

I wasnt a huge fan of the trail grapplers. I think I may have gotten 20k out of them. they wore quickly but in their defense they were on my ram 1500 and I had a lead foot.

The toyos are a good tire with plenty of traction and they last a while. I can't speak for the nittos but I know a lot of jk guys run them. Don't really see nittos on any other jeeps?

I run the Dick Cepek Mud Country tires. I LOVE them both on the road and off.
They have a soft compound that gives them amazing traction on every surface I have been on.

All that being said, they are a 20-25,000 mile tire. So if you're looking for a long lived tire, and are considering these, they will likely not be a good choice for you.

I think the nittos smallest size is 17" not a whole lot of older jeeps running a rim that large.
My current cooper at3s are outclassing the nittos in every way. Offroad capability, road noise(or lack thereof),comfort, and price.

I just got a set of the toyo m/t's so I can't comment on their longevity, but I will say they are really quiet compared to my old pro comp m/t's. I see you're in bossier city, I'll be moving to that area soon, maybe I'll see you around sometime.

I have been running nittos on my truck for years, 2500 diesel. I have been getting close to 45k out of them. I routinely pull a a 5th wheel trailer either a stock trailer when loaded pushing 14k lbs, loader on a flat bed at about 12k, also a tractor and drill pushing over 20k. I have been extremely pleased with the life I get from the all terrains and am now putting the mud grapplers on my jeep. I am very happy with the nitto tire line. It would be hard for me to go to another tire for the daily duties that my truck sees. As a note you are comparing the same line of tires as toyo and nitto are sister companies and the tire construction is the same, just different tread patterns for toyo vs. nitto. I would let price be your guide between the two.
