Has anyone used this tire?

I am looking for a great tire to use in the sand. I will spend most all of my time in soft sand dunes and really want to make the right decision out the gate. Also, another big choice will be size. I have a stock 92 4.0. This tire comes in 31x10.5x15 or 33x12.5x15. This is the Nitto Dune Grappler. I like the design and the reviews seem legit.


Is it worth it to go with the 33's and if so how big will I have to go with the lift? Let me know what you think.

def go with the 12.5 and get 8" wide wheels so that you can air down well. and you will need 3.5"+ lift with the stock fenders/flares

LOL! I have Mickey Thompson rims, but I am not sure how to check the width on them with the tires installed. As far as the paddles go...how bad are they on the road? I will have to drive the Jeep to the dunes.
