Nitto Ridge Grappler


The Ridge Grappler represents the next generation of the Nitto Grappler family of products which provides the best of both worlds from our mud-terrain and all-terrain product offerings. Featuring a revolutionary dynamic hybrid tread pattern, the Ridge Grappler provides a quiet and comfortable ride while the deep, aggressive sidewall lugs and tread pattern provide capable off-road performance.

  • Staggered shoulder lugs deliver strong off-road grip
  • Shoulder grooves help clear mud from the tread, keeping grip strong
  • Variable pitch tread pattern for a smooth, quiet ride on-road
  • Two sidewall patterns – a traditional pattern on one side and a block design on the other
  • Stone ejectors push rocks out of the tread, preventing damage
  • Lateral Z tread grooves and step block edges bite into terrain for powerful traction
