Nitto Mud grapplers ???? opinions
 
Love the aggressive tread. Any opinions. Big thing, How loud are they. I like some road noise but do not want it to over run stereo or give me a headache while driving.

I had a set on my last truck for about 28K before I sold it. Offroad this tire is amazing. They stick like glue and they can take a beating. On road they are surprisingly smooth and comfortable but they do carry a tune. I didn't mind the noise while I had them but I didn't buy them with a concern for noise. Here's a parking lot pic of my old truck:

I just installed 33's Nitto All Terrain Grapplers, and I love them not so noisy handling is pretty good on road; not as good as the original Bridgestone Deulers all terrain but i was willing to sacrifice a little comfort for the rugged off road look....Attachment 30004
Here is a pic of my 2011 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

Your Trail Grapplers look great Jrsounds. This would be a good alternative to the Mud Grappler is noise is a concern.

I looked at the Nitto MudGrappler... Instead I went Nitto Trail Grappler MT... Still a mud tire, but a better look and these things are quiet. These are the quietest mud tire I've ever seen... And they are aggressive.

Sorry for the multiple posts... Phone is acting up. Here is an "in action" pic and a close up of the spare. I love these tires!

Just keep an eye on um....dad's buddy just had to get 3 of his 5 replaced by Nitto. The tread was seperating at the lugs on an 07 model tire. We won't take a chance with um again.

That would suck! Luckily... So far so good! At about 7-8,000 miles.

I have had a full set on my 5.7 4x Tundra (LongBed) for about 30K miles now, with no problems at all. and they are wearing very well, with good rotation...and no noticable road noise. We plan to upgrade to them on our 11 JK very soon...:thumb:

I had a set of these on my old 95 wrangler. They worked great, and here in Miami, there is not a lot of hills or off-road to speak off. Overall, they handled very good, great on breaking, and not much noise.

Looks great!

I had a set of Mud Grapplers on my Titan before I sold it. They were great tires. They ride smooth, balance great and did awesome off-road. Yes they make some noise on the road but that's what you'll get with such an aggressive tire.

The Jeep has a 4.5" lift (RE Short Arm) and is running 35x12.50-17 tires :thumb:

33x13.5 15 Nitto Mud Grapplers on Black Rock 15s fit with on 2011 Rubicon?

I know if I go offroading I need a lift, but of the 42000 miles, Maybe 350 is on a dirt road I go on with some sloppy mudd puddles

Discount Tire 06-15-2013 12:22 PM

The 33x13.50-15 Mud Grappler is a wide tire so you would have to run this model on the 15x10 ET-38 Black Rock D-Window. This combination is going to stick out a good amount. When compared to where the 15x8 ET-19 Tracker with 33x12.50-15 DuraTrac tires sit, the D-Window combination will sit about 2" further out. Without a decent size lift you are going to have a lot of tire rub at full lock.

mine sound like a squadron of P-51 mustangs are chasing me. gotta love the looks I get when I pass people on the highway.

my buddy and I both have 37's, his being toyo OC's, mine being nitto mud grapplers. I walk up boulders that he spins his tires on. They are sticky. the only downside to this is I doubt they will last as long as other tires.

purchased mine from discount tire, I had to choose between 5 tires, or 4 tires all with a warranty. I never stray far from home so I went with the warranty. they beat the best price I could find online, which was a significant discount.
