Nitto Trail Grappler M/T

  • No tread-wear warranty
  • Expensive
Where to Buy
 

The Nitto Trail Grappler M/T performs capably on mud, rocks and sandy hills in a couple of tests, but experts find some other mud tires they like better -- including the top-rated (and less expensive) Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar (*Est. $210) . The Nitto isn't quite as good at clearing mud from its treads as the Goodyear in one test. On the road, experts and owners mostly find the Nitto quiet for its class, but overall we found little feedback about the Nitto's performance on dry, wet, snowy or icy pavement (unlike the Goodyear, which rates excellent on all road conditions in extensive owner reviews and has undergone extensive expert testing off-road).

Two off-road enthusiast magazines test the Nitto Trail Grappler M/T. Four Wheeler pits its mud prowess against nine of its rivals, and Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road tests it on rocks and sandy slopes. Owners report on its real-life performance at Offroaders.com.

The Nitto Trail Grappler M/T places fourth in this test of 10 mud tires. It is supple on-road but not as good in deep mud as some other competitors, Robin Stover says.
