New: Nitto Ridge Grappler (Hybrid)

Nitto Adds New Ridge Grappler To Tire Lineup

If you are like me and love the look of a MT but hate the noise, Nitto may have come up with a solution in the Nitto Trail Grappler.





I am curious of price, and what the true size is. May have to give them a look in July.

Looks like they are offering a 285/75/17 C, that would be great on my rig. Hopefully the tires aren't ridiculously heavy.

Good looking tire.
Sounds like they are keeping the heavy carcass for the sidewall support. I'm good with that. I really like the sidewalls on the S/T Maxx. They've done well against the rocks. Based on Nitto's history, this may be just as good or better.

Maybe it's time to add a new tire category, and change things up a bit.
They could ad TWAT (The Winter All Terrain) for all the SUV type tires that spend more time going to ski resorts than off road.
Then change the nomenclature of AT to Assault Terrain, for the real "all terrain" tires.

probably a spin off on the Toyo R/T carcass. Toyo is Nitto's parent company and their tires run fairly true to size. I just put on a set of R/T in 35/12.5-17 and with 30psi parked on flat ground I am over 34" tall using a level on top of the tire. The shipping weight was 75lbs so not terrible.

Very nice. I actually like the noise from my NittoTrail grapplers. These will be about the same price at the TG's I'm betting. Good to see another great option for tires from Nitto.

Did anyone catch them go live on FB for a review? I am pretty impressed with the tire. I would link the video but I am not sure how. 4 wheel Parts on FB did the review.

The TG is pretty quiet for an MT. Nitto also makes one of the most true to size tires out there, unlike the others. Toyo is also very close to true.

I have been going back and forth between the MTR and the Nitto. Both in 37's. I currently have the Fierce Attitudes, and they are way too loud for me.

Just caught this via another newer post. Going to have to keep an eye out for these to see where they come $$$ and weight-wise since I'm going to need new tires in a few months. I had planned on 285/75/17's but everything there is load range E, so these being offered in the C range is great. If the reviews are good I might bite the extra $$$ over the Falken A/T3W's I was going to go with just to get the less stiff feel of the C vs. E range.

Completely agree! What a great Jeep tire... I love the 285/75-17 size, basically it's a 35 that is an inch narrower. BINGO! And C rated to boot!

Aggressive sidewall and all.... I like it.

I noticed the ad banner on the side yesterday. Really curious about these. But no love for 16" wheels.

I really like the recent surge in AT/MT tires.

Like Comanche said, they need to settle on a category name for this type of tire. There is really no fair comparison between these/Duratracs/KO2s, and traditional ATs like Geolanders/Rugged Terrains/Silent Armors. Maybe, AT+... SuperAT... A/MT... Overland Terrain (OT)... Summit Terrain (ST)... Rocky Terrain (RT)... Trail Terrain (TT)

I think Toyo has a good idea with the name for their version, RT ("Rough Terrain")

You mean Rugged Terrain? But, yeah, that's perfect. As long as they didn't trademark it.

Are you thinking of a 285/70/17? A 285/75/17 is larger.

I can't even find the "currently available sizes" on any of the big websites. DTD has the model listed but when you click it, nothing is in stock.

285/75/17 Tire

285*.75=213.75 (Sidewall Height)
213.75*2 = 427.5 (There are 2 Sidewalls)
427.5/25.4=16.83 (Convert mm to inches)
16.83+17=33.8" Tall (Add the rim diameter to the combined sidewall height)

The calculated height of a 285/75/17 tire is 33.8". Approx a 34" tire.

oh, so 32.8 after mounted so approx a 33" tire lol (Still better than the BFG 34 KO2 which are 32") I may get the 285/75R17 since they're a C but waiting until they're released and read some reviews.
