The Dune Grappler light-truck tire was engineered to provide both on-road comfort and off-road performance on packed dirt, sand and loose rocks. The sidewall lugs and 3-ply polyester sidewall construction add protection to resist sidewall punctures. The tread blocks increase rigidity, helps to reduce irregular wear and minimize road noise.

  • Off-Road Traction (The intermediate void ratio between the tread blocks helps to provide off-road performance in loose dirt and sand).
  • Strength and Durability (Three-ply polyester sidewall construction and sidewall lugs aid in puncture resistance).
  • On-Road Manners (The Dune Grappler’s 3D grooving and tread blocks help reduce tread movement. This helps reduce irregular wear and minimize road noise).
  • Longevity (Bridges were added between treadblocks to reduce tread flex, resulting in less heat build up to prolong the tire's performance).
