Nitto Trail Grapplers M/T vs. Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM
Does anyone have some good feedback on comparing these two tires?
Nitto Trail Grappler M/T LT "E rated" vs. Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM "C rated".
I know the Nittos well and just love them, especially off-road. I also like how heavily built they are - not very likely to fail when out in the middle of nowhere. Tough, thick sidewalls. But they are noisy on the highway.
I have some limited experience with the Goodrichs and they are pretty quiet on the highway... and while the tread looks like it would be good off-road, I've never experienced them off road. Are they as good off-road as the Nittos?
We are ok with accepting the highway noise of the Nittos, given their exceptionally beefy build quality and great off-road performance. But I'm wondering if when time comes for replacement, I might go with something quieter, if the off-road performance isn't compromised much.
