Nitto Ridge Grapplers vs Toyo Open Country RT

I am looking to put a set of new 35's on my 2018 Recon, and have been doing a lot of research for a good all around tire. I will be in the road more than off road.

Do either of these tires have an negatives?

looking for some good input on them.

Thanks

On the road, not in it

I just put a set of Ridge Grapplers on my JKU about three weeks ago. They look great and are about as quiet as the stock Bridgestones. They handle well on the highway. Haven't gotten around to seeing how they perform off road yet. I heard good things about the Toyo's as well. I think they are a bit more expensive than the Nitto's but not by much.

I have run toyo R/T in 35/12.5-17 and they do great in everything but deep mud but for me I avoid mud. Toyo makes Nitto and I suspect they are made on the same carcass as they are very similar tires. I doubt you will disappointed in either one.

I have about 5k miles on my 37" ridge grapplers - still as quiet as the day i got them and no appreciable wear. I have tried them in the sand and they worked well, no mud or rocks yet

That's interesting, I had no clue that Toyo made the Nitto tires.

I looked at both of these tires side by side when making my decision. The ridge grapplers have a little more rubber sidewall protection than the R/T's so if your going to play in the rocks/trees you will get slightly better protection/grip. IMO, that's what swayed me to the Ridge grapplers. I'm really happy with these tires, better than my previous Toyo AT2 Extreme's I ran.

I've been super happy with my 34" Ridge Grapplers. Very quiet on road, handle rain very well, and did just fine in the snow we had last night. Won't be able to get them offroad until the spring unfortunately.

I wasnt looking at the toyos, I narrowed it down to ridge grapplers and KO2s

Had ridge grapplers installed today and of coarse its snowing. So far so good... zero complaints except for the price

I have a recon also and I been thinking about the same tires choices. But recently added one more tire into the mix, Mickey Thompson ATZ P3.. Still reviewing all now but I think I may lean towards the ATZ P3.
