Nitto Terra Grappler G2

So I just purchased a set of these (5) in P285/70/17. I have yet to even have them mounted and Im having second thoughts on my purchase.

Ive searched numerous times/methods to find real feedback from people running these on their JKU's and the results have been lackluster.

SO, how many of you have these tires?
Are you happy with them, pros/cons, off-road capable, or any other items of note you wish to chime in with?

The one thing I saw on a JK forum i wont name is someone having numerous (3-4) flats 3k miles into ownership. Thats a bit worrisome. Id say my on-road/off-road use is something like 70/30 as this is my DD.

Any feedback you guys can give would be much appreciated!

Bump. I am researching 35 series tires right now for my build and was ready to buy these same tires based on the 17 reviews from this website:

Nitto Terra Grappler G2 - Free Delivery Available | TireBuyer.com

If anyone has had negative experience please share and save both of us some pain!

I went ahead and had mine mounted because I couldn't stand anymore time on the crappy ProComp tires I had. They were so irregularly worn that I couldn't even have a conversation with the noise. Between those tires and the issues with the lift I'd never seen one person (PO) make so many bad choices with a vehicle in my life.

My review so far based on The 15 minutes it took me to drive home are that the Nittos are 100x better then what I had. Time will tell if that stands true for the long haul but so far I'm pleased.

My biggest concern is weather I will encounter issues when I do take these on a trail. Having multiple Flats is not my idea of a good time.

I have the Trail Grapplers, not the Terra Grapplers, but from the research I've done and my friends that have them I have only heard good things (I almost got the Terra Grapplers but I wanted a more aggressive look). Nitto generally makes a pretty good product and has the reputation to back it up. Good choice in my humble opinion

My neighbor installed G2's on his diesel a month ago and he loves them but he mainly tows a trailer on the streets. He had trail grapplers prior to these and never really liked them. Wore terribly and pretty noisy. Not sure how these would do offroading though.

I put a set of 285/70/17[P] on my Jeep last night and had a pretty lengthy drive this morning with them. I was both on the highway as well as twisty back roads and the tires handled extremely well on both roads. The ride is so much smoother than the stock SR4s in every aspect. The most noticeable difference is going over bumps, especially a set of train tracks I cross every morning. The SR4s seemed like I was on a wave runner when I would cross the tracks, but the Grapplers seemed to float over them.

I know it has only been a small sample size, roughly 100 miles, but first impression is I made the right choice. I will check back in after I log some more miles on them.

Terra grappler g2

Have them on my HR JKU and Ram 1500. No flats tire issue. Had them on truck last winter and got by great. 12000 miles on Ram and they look like new. Recommend rotate every 5000 miles.

I had trail grapplers on an H2 then on a 2012 call of duty. I was very happy with them and added five to my new 2015 Rubicon Unlimited.

I've been running them for almost a year now and about 8k, not a single problem. Very good tire.

After putting a few hundred miles on these this weekend I really do like them, but will say they are louder then what I was expecting. They are not loud by any means, but there is a noticeable hum, which you would have with any AT.

I had slightly larger ones (295/70/17). Two trips from Texas to Colorado. Did most of the trails there (lots of sharp rocks). Didn't rotate them as often as I should have... Probably 5 times, but they still lasted over 60,000 miles. Never had a flat. Here's what's strange... I only added air to them once in almost 4 years! They were great tires! Not that we get much winter weather in Texas, but when we do, it's ice! They stuck to the ice like glue! I can't tell you how many people I pulled off the sides of roads that were stuck the past couple of winters. When I wore them out, I wanted 35s, so I went to KO2s simply because they were much lighter than the Nitto 35s, and I figured I'd take less of a hit on my MPGs. I like the KO2s, but it's yet to be seen if they'll perform as well or last as long as my Nittos.

So I finally got to test my new rubbers in the rain. These things handled unbelievably! I tried to break them loose around corners a few different times and they would not. These were the same corners my old stock SR4s would break loose with the smallest bit of water on the road.

Wait for the snow and ice! ;-)

I just put on the G2's 325/60/18 and they look and feel great. Flat issues? Sounds like an isolated event. There can be defects in anything but from reading this thread I think your (and my) purchase of these is a fine choice in tire.

Im new to the jeep community and very excited. Just purchased my first jeep last week! 2016 jeep wrangler unlimited sport. Hated the tires n wheels on it and 5 days later i bought the nitto terra grapplers g2. I love them, granted ive only had them for about 100 miles but can definitely tell a huge difference between them and stock. Driving home to NY in december so then i will definitely be able to test their worth

Going on four months and over 5,000 miles on my 285/70/17 Nitto G2's. The ride and handling is vastly improved over the stock Goodyear's. I am happy with my choice, and if you go with the Nitto's I think you will be too. No issues with flats, that must have been an isolated issue.

@jcarbs77 do you notice a whistling noise from the tires? It isn't like the typical hum of an AT tire, it is more high pitch and whining sounding.

I usually drive with the windows down and never noticed. However, after you mentioned it, I had my windows up and could hear the whistling. It wasn't too bad, about the same as my wife's Pirelli's.

Yea, I don't notice it until I listen for it, but then it is very noticeable.... if that makes any sense. It isn't bad just very distinct.


What PSI are you running your tires? I started at 36psi, was talked into running them at 30ps, but didn't like the feel of them. I flirted with everything in between, but came back to 36psi.

I try and run them at 36psi as well

Terra Grappler g2

I have installed 315x70x17 nitto tires....they are an awesome tire. Mounted on17x9 rims and tire pressures set to 34 psi. Super chips Flashpaq to set speedo values, did the 87 tune too. I couldn't be happier, although a stiffer sidewall and tread, they are surprisingly quiet and run smooth....not too mention how good they look also. Tread pattern is aggressive enough for all terrains and peace of mind if you ever need to off road. I spent months shopping for tires and decided on something new and different, that paid off big time. They are heavier, but I think that contributes to more stability on the highway, added a teraflex carrier to handle the spare.
