265/70 R17 Nitto Terra Grappler input?

Looking at throwing a set of these on. Anyone got experience with them?
Good or bad, I want to hear it all before I buy.....

I had a buddy who used those almost exclusively. I drove his truck off-road a couple times and really liked them. Did really well both on and off-road. Honestly, if it came down to these or the BFG AT's I'd have to flip a coin.

Hmmm...... I was actually trying to decide between the Nitto Terra Grappler and the Hankook Dynapro, in the all terain models.... Should I be looking at BFGs?

Would like a tire that isn't majorly loud on the freeway, and will not be bald in 20 thousand miles, and will give reliable performance in light mud, dirt, gravel, light snow.

The nittos wear out a bit faster, but they are gonna be the quiet ones on the road compared to the other too. The BFGs are probably the best of the 3, but also cost almost 100 more dollars than the nittos. I have never owned the dynapro a/ts, but I did have dynapro m/ts on a frontier I had, and they cleaned fast in swampy mud and climbed up anything. Aired down well too, but I have 265/70/17s on my 07 2 door and like them so far after a week of use.

Sounds like the BFG's are worth looking at for you, but I don't think you'd be unhappy with the Nitto TG's.

Personally I had BFG's on my last truck and loved them. The difference in mud and off-road use was very noticeable. At the same time, they were well behaved on road too.

I had a set on a 2003 ford f350 SRW 4x4. they did great on the road. when it would rain and the speed limit was 55 mph everyone would be doing like 40-45 and i would put it in four wheel drive and cruise at 55. loved them for the road. as far as wear they wore pretty evenly with out me ever rotating them. BUT OFF ROAD THEY SUCK ***! i offroad almost every weekend and i will never buy another set for my vehicle. they dont "self clean" at all. so the least amount of thick mud your screwed. if i were i would go with the bfg's and i dont even know what they are lol! Nitto terra grapplers are crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have 265 70 17 conti crosstrack lx on my jeep, but I have 265 70 17 general grabber hts on my supercrew, I think the generals are a better tire. They are rated no.1 by consumer reports. I had nittos and would not buy them again.

I have a set of these on my Dodge pickup. I really like them for a all around tire. If you drive in much mud I wouldn't recomend them.

I've had mine on for about 6k and love them. Great on the road and once aired down they work well on the trail. I have a friend that has them on his V-10 Ram for the past 4 years and they are wearing well.

So when I am hearing that they wear out faster than the others, what am I hearing? Am I gonna see 50k on the Terra Grapplers? Apparently the BFGs will see that, dunno about the Hankooks....... The MAJORITY of my driving is on pavement, but I hit trails as much as possible. Tires are expensive, so I can't be constantly replacing them........

I believe he has 40 to 50k on his. He will be needing tires next year.

Have you looked at Goodyear Duratracs?
They're raised the standard for all ATs to be judged...

Hadn't looked. I pretty much ignored Goodyear. The only Goodyears that I have been impressed with, are the one's we put on the Wife's Mustang....

I have 33 12.50 ntg on my wrangler, would not buy again. There less then a year old and are almost bald. When they had god tread they did not clean themselves off, it was like a slick in mud. My old 31 10.50 bfg's were better off road. And handled wear better!

^^Do not agree with any of that. Nitto's clean superbly in mud, better than any a/t Ive ran. They also air down extremely well. I ran TG's on my previous vehicle for over 3 years and they still had life in them. Apparently he doesn't rotate his tires or his alignment is crap.

This is me and a few friends out playing last weekend. My Jeep is the one with the dash cam. I'm aired down to 16psi. It's a looong video at 25 minutes, but if you scroll to around the 16:30 min mark and watch from there you will see how they do in the mud. Also, at the 12 minute mark there is also a rather deep and rutted out section of mud. You can't really see it since it's off to the side, but I pulled through it much easier than I thought I would. The guy I"m talking to that think even he might get stuck is in a Rubi with 35" MT's. These tires have about 10k miles on them. Keep in mind, it's a Sahara.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but performance decreases with wear for every tire out there.
