I've run Dick Cepek FC II's and now have the ATP, not the AT3 and really like the AT3. I've got another truck with the Nitto Terras, and think the performance is comparable between the 3. However, I think the DC FC II and Nittos have more road noise - I'm only doing 300 miles a week though!

I ended up going with the toyos. 4 inch BDS short arm lift, 35" toyo open country M/T on 18" XD spys. I don't have any mods on the engine but I get around 11 mpg, big tip, use cruise control when you can! Almost 2K on my toyos and don't have any sign of wear

ironman2443 I have 295/70/17 trail grapplers on a 2011 unlimited with stock gears and have been pleased with how quiet these tires are compared to other tires.

2006tj Im running 285/75R16 Terra Grapplers, as far as a quiet and smooth ride id give them an A+. But as for me im ready for a more aggressive look so might switch to a M/T.

About how much mileage did you see drop? I'm in the same boat as you I want to put them on my stock 2012 sahara

Problem with Nitto Tire rotation

Hey could use some intelligent opinions on this one. Have a low mileage 2008 jk. Put on 20" wheels and some 33" Nitto Trail Grapplers. Jeep has a 2" lift. The Nitto's were a little loud at first but after a couple of thousand miles they quieted down considerably. They only got loud after you hit about 55-60mph. Put 6k on them and I had Firestone rotate the tires.. front to back..back to front. The tires are so loud now. I'm talking at 25-30 mph they start to whine out. With the windows down its annoying as hell. I don't remember them being that loud at all when they were new. These tires have no cupping. Thinking about putting them back the way they were. Whats happening here ?

mike1158 i'm gonna re-open this thread...beat a little life into it....

i have a 2013 Sahara on order and i'm looking for something a little more AT then the stockers...actually like the 275/65-18 size...stock height and about 1" wider then stock...
I wanna keep weight down as this will be my work vehicle and i do about 500 miles a week and have to go off pavement just about every day for work...not gonna be a heavy wheeler...
I'm looking at Nitto Terras, General Grabber AT2, and Copper AT3..
i had Toyo AT in the mix but in that size they are over 50# and a heavy ply tire..so i'm steering away..

i was at a tire shop today and they printed me out a spec on a Nitto TERRA 275/65-18 it had a 120s service rating, the guy said it was an "XL or extra load tire" whatever that means... but it ony wieghs about 2 pounds more then the stock 255 tires....

When I first bought a set of Super Swamper SX tires for my Ford Ranger years back, I said the exact same thing. Give these tires 15K mi. and those cleats will ROAR when you go down the fwy. Get ready for earplugs!

raythom3 Been reviewing a lot of tires and based on the fact that I would really like to try and stick with the stock 18" wheels on our Altitude I am leaning towards the Trail or Terra Grapplers. What kind of mileage is everyone getting out of there tires?

Mines going in the shop tomorrow to get a 4' BDS lift on 35' toyo M/T's, ill he sure to tell you about them, I'm just hearing better and better things about the tire plus I got a buddy that has an f250 on 37's with 50k on his toyos and still look great

snotpuller Running 34x12.5x20 mud grapplers but I'm switching to trail grapplers because of the extreme road noise they produce on my jeep.

WXman As far as weight goes.. Nitto is one of the few companies that makes a P285/70-17. So that's an extremely lightweight 33" tire option for 17" wheels. Not many companies are making that.

The open tread blocks with sipes look like they'd tear through the mud and snow really well on the Terra Grappler. They are much more aggressive than most tires in their category.

The Terras are at the top of my list so far...still thinking about it.
09-11-2012 11:36 AM
DrHolliday I'll report back when i have mine and get to test them out. Getting the nitto MG's in a 40x13.50r17

Same here....so today I ordered the 295/70/17's. I'll post pics this weekend.

carl d My Terra Grapplers work great with 2012 Jeep JK Sport. Weight is not a problem. Nitto's only weigh a few pounds more and balance out better than most tires.
08-21-2012 10:02 AM
HK_Runner They will differ slightly due to tread pattern, but Nitto is a brand of Toyo and both tires (Open Country MT and Trail Grappler) are very very similar. They are good tires actually...just too heavy to run with a V6- especially offroad. Very popular with the diesel and truck guys. I hear the quality of the tires is very high, and they rarely need much weight to balance.
08-20-2012 11:14 PM
leftpedal Thanks for the info HK Runner. Looks like the Toyo's are actually heavier, at least the comparable tires anyway. Crazy!
08-20-2012 09:32 PM
HK_Runner These are very heavy indeed. I can't use them on the Jeep. BTW, you can get all the weights off Toyo's site (the Open Country MT is basically the same tire).
08-20-2012 09:08 PM
leftpedal I'm new here so hope I am doing this right...... I have spent a lot of time looking at lots of posts on tire weights and the debate that follows, and trying to get all the info I can. Its hard to find Nitto info because it's not on their website and things change year to year on some of the tires they make. But I will say, they were very quick to get back to me when I sent an email via their website. I will post their response so you can see for yourself if you are doing the same research as I. But if you arent looking for 17" tires, I suggest emailing them and they really do respond quickly. So, heres what I know, based on 2012 data from Nitto:

Nitto Trail Grappler MT
285/70/R17- 67.24 lbs
295/70/R17- 70.55 lbs
315/70/R17- 76.06 lbs

All the other demensions are available on their website and seems to do a good job. Hope this helps anyone looking for this info.

Dmactampa I've had my Nitto Trail Grapplers, 35x12.50x17, mounted to ProComp 7036 wheels. These tires are heavy and will require an upgraded carrier for the spare. I was very surprised they are so quiet. 2000 miles in I'm very happy. I don't wheel much but I understand they are very capable. On road I've noticed a little rougher ride but can't be sure if it's the tires or the lift. Either way I really like them and feel they are one of the best looking options out there.

So far I'm at Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac's, Dick Cepek FC-II and Toyo M/T's
The toyo mt are great on and offroad and last a long time. I have them so I'd say go with those.

carl d Running Nitto Terra's 325-70-17 and love them. They are great on and off road.
