Nitto Mud Grapplers

Im trying to decide what type of tires to put on my rig. I currently have KM2's but they are getting bald. Ive always liked Nitto Mud Grapplers but never thought about putting them on a jeep. Whats the general opinion on this? If you have pictures of your rigs on Nittos that would be sweet. Also im getting 33's if that helps

Ok well I'll be honest with you and this is just and OPINION but I hated my grapplers, I had 35 inch nitto mud grapplers and I wasn't a fan, they weigh a ton, obviously they're going to be incredibly loud and bumpy, and boy where they haha, they looked absolutely incredible, very aggressive and mean, but they just werent for me, also if your going to be running on the road much, they wear down very quickly because of the massive soft tread on them. So needless to say I traded them off for some bfg AT's, not near as aggressive of a tire but I'm so much happier driving my jeep hope this helps any but like I said, it's just my own personal opinion.
Good luck with your searches!

Never had a set of Nitto's on a Jeep ... but in Nov 2010 we decided to drive up to Seattle and back from Nashville. I purchased a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers for my 2WD Z66 Avalanche. We left Nashville around the 19 of Dec. We hit the snow in western Kansas and every other state beyond there, CO,WY,UT,ID,OR,WA.... No problems what so ever, no slipping, sliding just cruised right along.. several vehicles that where traveling on the roads ended up in the median, or ditches as we drove right on through..... . It was such a pleasure to feel a little bit secure with our Nitto's that we did a the trip again in Dec 2011 returning in early Jan 2012. Snow and ice covered most of the roads in at least 5 states on our last trip but again never a problem....... I know snow and ice is not or (ain't) mud but if they perform anything close in mud as they did in the snow and ice then they should be GREAT? I just purchased a second set for my Silverado Z71 this year..... I highly recommend Nitto's for any vehicle. no I don't own them and no I didn't get paid to say this..... I looked for a set of 15 inch for my Jeep but no luck finding them. Best of luck in your decision

While I have never had Mud Grapplers, Nitto is definitely a respectable tire company. Buy for your needs...

I've always want a set of Terra Grapplers for my Jeep. Just waiting on a set of wheels. Seen alot of Terra Grapplers on trucks around here, not many Mud Grapplers though.

I would have picked up a set if I wasn't looking for 35s on my D30. Way to heavy for my rig IMO. Also, they are $$. However, I have had a set of Nitto 555s on my mustang for almost a year and I couldn't be happier with them. Great company and great quality tires.

Had them on my 2002 Nissan frontier and loved them. They were loud though but I think they will weigh to much in 35's for a jeep.

You can run them with no problem but they are the loudest tire that I know of save Pitbull Rockers.

Even my BFG Krawlers are more quiet on the road. Something to keep in mind.

That said, they work well on the rocks, flat spot very well below 15 psi and are as tough as any tire out there.

Yes I would agree, if your going nitto, buy the terra grapplers, they're an excellent tire for everyday use, aggressive but calm enough for everyday road use, if your vehicle is strictly an of road trailer queen then mud grapplers are great tires, but definitely go with the terra grapplers for everyday use.
