Nitto Terra Grappler

For Sale:
1 Nitto Terra Grappler, 315x75 R16 D

Brand new, never used. This tire was the spare on my newly purchased rig, I'm switching over to BFG's, the mounted Nitto's are almost cooked.

So if anyone's running Nitto's....make me an offer.

Hey, thread jack- how many miles on the Nittos? How did you like them? Why are you going to BFGs?

My BFGs are shot at 55K.

My rig had 22k miles on it when I bought it. Nitto's have maybe 25% tread left. That's not very good in my book. Definitely less than you got out of your BFG's. Also, they are D load rated, and they have a lot of sidewall flex, someone told me they aren't 3ply sidewalls like BFG's or Goodyear MTR's. I'm not a 100% on going BFG again, I have them on my Tacoma, and they have been good for that truck. I was reading in another thread that people seem to like the Cooper MTR's....so I might try them. Also, I can't find a BFG in an E load rating, so that might seal the deal for me....I think our SMB's need an E.

Just to let you know, the Nitto Terra Grapplers also come in an E load rating, this is what I have on our van (285/75/16). I only have about 6k miles so far, so I can't speak to their longevity. They replaced the stock Ford E350 Hancook tires (245/75/16) so I can't compare them to other "real" tires for the SMB. I will say I've been very happy with them so far.

You may need to change rims to find an E in the size you want in a particular brand.

If I need to change rims, I'll change brands, If that doesn't work, I'll settle for D for now. Changing rims = mucho $$$
