Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Tire Review & Rating

The Nitto Trail Grappler M/T is engineered to combine some of the performance of its off-road Mud Grappler tire with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler. This combination is meant to give drivers the ability to take their trucks on any terrain, while also providing a quiet ride when going down the highway.

The Trail Grappler sports a thick all-season and all-terrain tread compound that provides added cushion on rough surfaces, as well as better overall puncture resistance when taking things off-road. Nitto has designed the tread blocks in a way that adds more biting edges and increases lateral stability.

Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Tire Review

What is immediately noticeable when driving on this tire at higher speeds is how quiet it is. It can often be hard to believe that you are actually driving on an off-road tire. Nitto has utilized the latest in sound analysis equipment and technology to eliminate the road noise both on and off road. We’ve heard other tire owners continually praising this tire for its quietness.

Inside the tire you will find two wider steel belts that provide added strength and stability, as well as enhanced tire uniformity and better overall treadwear. A 3-ply high turn-up construction in the sidewall also improves strength and durability.


  • Excellent balance of off-road performance and on-road comfort

  • Tire is quiet going down the highway
  • Treadlife is among the best in class

Overall Thoughts

Simply stated…the Trail Grappler M/T is one of the best tires on the market today that provides a combination of both on and off road use. It’s off-road performance is superb. The tire goes just about anywhere you would ever want to go. Hard to ask for much more from any tire.

Overall, Nitto has hit a home run with this tire. It certainly rates among the top 10 models in this class.

  1. I’m about to replace the 18″ Nitto Trail Grapplers on my ’14 Tundra with another set. 45K miles (mostly road driving 90/10) and smooth low-noise performance with rotation every 10k. Blew one out on the rear towing a camper last spring due to road hazard but found a used one to replace it on ebay for 40 bucks. They worked for me.

  2. I wouldn’t recommend these tires to my worst enemy! Almost $2K and I could actually SEE the wear in the tread at 8K mikes. I actually worked at a tire shop and have had many different brands on my vehicles. Which include sports cars, luxury cars, trucks, and motorcycles. These were by far the worst, most expensive, and lasted the least amount of time with no off road driving at all. Seriously disappointed.

      1. I have the Nitto Trail grabs 295/60 /20 on my 2016 Ram…no issues or complaints at all out of these tires..on my 2nd set now..had a little over 46,000 miles on the first set..Great tire would recommend them to everyone.

    1. depending on driving habits and the vehicle, 8k miles is plenty of miles to SEE wear, whatever that may mean. Are you expecting to have a mud tire look brand knew 1/5 of the way through its life?
