Nitto Trail Grapplers arrived!

The wall o' rubber arrived today! Tire size is 37x12.50R17.
While looking them over, I discovered something interesting about them. See the middle tires, and how much blacker they are than the outer tires? I didn't put anything on them, that's how they came. Each sidewall of the tire is different, in terms of side biter design and font style for "Trail Grappler M/T. The darker sidewall has capitalized, simple font style with flat side biter blocks, while the lighter colored sidewall has a more aggressive, stylized font and ribbed side biter blocks.
I'm ordering these wheels for them tomorrow. XD Addicts with the machined finish on the spokes.

There's nothing wrong with the tires. Each tire has one sidewall one way, and one sidewall the other way. Gives the tire two slightly different looks, depending on which sidewall you like better. Personally, it doesn't matter to me, either one looks fine. Just need to make sure the guy installing the wheels understands there is a difference, and to make sure the same sidewall design faces the same way on all of them.
Kinda like tires with raised white lettering on one side, and black wall on the other, only a more subtle of a difference.

I was considering a set of grapplers myself. Trying to decide if I should step down to a 31 from the 33s I'm at now or replace my existing 33s which are running out of tread quickly.
