Nitto Trail Grappler M/T



Description

The Trail Grappler M/T blends some of the performance of the Mud Grappler with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler® to create an off-road tire that is both aggressive and quiet.

For off-road performance, the 3-ply sidewall and thick rubber construction increase puncture resistance. On the tread surface, the blocks provide additional biting edges that command lateral stability and enhance forward traction. For on-road comfort, Nitto’s engineers used advanced sound analysis equipment to systematically reduce noise levels commonly associated with off-road tires for a quieter drive.

  • Deep center sipe increases traction on wet surfaces, helping prevent hydroplaning
  • Z-groove tread provides lateral stability and great traction in mud
  • 3D tapered groove tread adds additional biting edges for off-road exploring
  • Stone ejector helps protect the tread, reject stones, and clear mud
  • Reinforced shoulder groove for better performance without compromising block stiffness
  • Two sidewall designs on each tire, so you can choose traditional or stylized lettering

Thse tires are absolutely the best! I have the second set of these tires. The first set I had lasted 42,000 miles.  My car rides like a dream, it's so quiet! They perform really great in the sand and never got me down through our snowy winters. I would definitely buy these tires again!
