Nitto's!

I used to only put the BFG AT's on my trucks and once did the MT ATZ's they were ok but I am loving my Nitto Terra Grapplers I put on the ranger. They are priced right too IMO

Ok if you want to know the truth i have had The duratracs On my rig for over a year. I love them I have taken them in so much mud, clay, sand, rock, and snow and mixtures of them all. They work better the the BFG M/T and A/T have wheeled with guys with them on and My tires out preformed them all. The guys I wheeled with are goin to get them next time they get tires. The only thing that the BFG's are better at is that they are a harder rubber so the tire lasts a little longer but ove all I would get them and if you wanna see them inaction I have pics on my profile check them out. As for the price $700 for a set thats high I olny paid $620 for 33X12.5X15 with the road harzard and allinment that seem allot. Try tire rack or discount tire you should get a better price. As for the handling on the road there are not bad I will agree at highway speeds they give you alittle vibration but not much, as for the turns I havnt had any issues with that. I am also not one of those guys that has only had good year tires my last set of tires were the BFG KM's and I like my duratracs way better. If you need any more info and I havnt done it I will try to go out and do it for you so you Know how they would preform. I am always liking to but my tires to the test. O as for tread wear its been over a year and there reall isnt really any tread usage showing yet and its My DD.
