Most lifted truck owners have heard of Nitto Mud-Grappler, Terra-Grappler, or Dune-Grappler tires. Some may have heard of the newer Trail Grappler (which will be writing about soon). But the Nitto tire featured in this article is the Dura Grappler. This tire is really built for everyday driving as well as some light off-roading. It provides a combination of tread life and ride comfort that are key for someone commuting or driving around town in a lifted truck on a daily basis.
The Dura Grappler is suitable for a wide variety of light trucks and SUVs, but be aware that the max size is 35 inches. So if you have anything bigger than an 8″ suspension lift, you will want to go with a bigger Nitto tire. Whether you’re working on a construction site or towing your toys, the Dura Grappler was designed to meet the needs of your big truck.
The Dura Grapller has bridges added between tread blocks to join individual blocks into continuous ribs. This stabilizes the tire and reduces tread flex. This, in combination with harder compounds, provides improved tread life. Dura-Belt 3Steel Belted Technology reinforces and stabilizes the tire’s internal construction to help reduce irregular wear and improve treadlife. Nitto offers a 45,000-mile to 60,000-mile limited treadwear warranty depending on the size of the tire.
Another nice feature is that Nito offers two distinct sidewall designs so you can customize your look. Tread patterns will vary by size: LT-Metric sizes are offered in a durable 4-rib design, while P-Metric sizes have a quiet 5-rib design.
This tire will run you around $300 per tire (before installation). Check out the video below for more info on the Nitto Dura Grappler or visit NittoTire.com
