Nitto question

Was looking @ terra grapplers and I've seen 2 types listed. One lists the size, then there's a cheaper option with the size and /10 after it.

What's the difference?

I'm not sure what size but tire companies sometimes make two tires exactly the same size but one of them is designated LT for Light Truck or a different load range letter and it is designed to have a higher load capacity and hence a higher price tag.

/10 next to the price could mean for 10 or more tires as in for a tire dealer.

Got a link?

Had it backwards, the "/10" option is more expensive. Here's an example...

285/70/17 - $193 Find Nitto Terra 285/70R17 Tires at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.

285/70/17/10 - $238 Nitto Terra Grappler Tire 285/70R17/10, Nitto Light Truck Tire, All-Terrain Performance Tire, Off-Road Performance Tire

I'm thinking it is the 10-ply designation of the 'E' rated Terra Grappler. If it has a load rating of '126' that is probably the case. Check with your vendor to be sure.

I just ordered a 'D' load rated '122' in a 16" (LT285/75R16 D1 122Q) because I didn't want the stiffer ride of an E sidewall tire.

If you are looking at a 285/70R17, beware that they offer one with a passenger tire rating (P285/70R17) as well as the LT (light truck) version. The 'P' version is much cheaper and carries lower load ratings.

I had the cheap terra grapplers on my dodge Dakota before I bought my jeep. I only.drove my truck on road, and then off-road for camping, not even wheeling once every couple of months.

I don't know about the more expensive ones, but the cheap ones suck. STEER CLEAR. The tread wear on those for just on road is horrendous. I also got pinhole leaks in two tires in the sidewall after a year of on road driving. Nitto didn't want to hear from me and the shop said it wasn't heir problem since it was after a year, and since it was the sidewall, nobody would patch it.

After a few months of using fix-a-flat I just got fed up and scrapped the tires and bought 4 new ones.

Just my $.02
