Nitto Ridge Grappler

Light Truck Tire


The Ridge Grappler represents the best of both worlds from a mud-terrain and all-terrain light truck tire.  Featuring a revolutionary dynamic hybrid tread pattern, this tire provides a quiet and comfortable ride while the deep, aggressive sidewall lugs and tread pattern provide capable off-road performance.


Features and Benefits:


·         Variable Pitch Tread Pattern - Advanced sound equipment was used to create a pattern that provides a quiet and smooth highway ride.


·         Shoulder & Lateral Z Grooves - Shoulder grooves are arranged in alternating widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction.  Lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction.


·         Dual Sidewall - This tire features two bold sidewall designs.  One side features a more traditional pattern while the other side features a new, aggressive block pattern.


·         Reinforced Block Foundation – Adds rigidity to tread blocks to reduce flex.


·         Stone Ejectors – Protects the bottom groove from stone drilling.


·         Staggered Shoulder Lugs – Provides traction in off-road environments


·         Edges – Alternating tapered edges and step block edges both provide additional biting edges for more traction.

Comments Best set of tires I have ever owned. This is the first review I have ever done. I felt like people needed to know how great these tires really are. On a 3500 GMC pulling a 10,000 lb trailer about half of the time I was still able to get 62,000 miles out of these bad boys. I'm hard on the throttle and my truck is always loaded about 19,000 lbs. I loved the Terras but in the snow, mud or even wet grass they were useless. Ridgies dig when they need to and roll with style. I have the Mud Grapplers on my Jeep, Trail Grapplers on my toy Truck and put 50,000 on at least 3 sets of Terra Grapplers. I use to be a BFG boy but lucky for me I fell in love with Nitto. Not saying I'm an tire expert but if you think there is a better tire for your Truck Jeep or SUV you're wrong. Rotate um every 5-10 thousand and ride um hard. Ridge Grapplers for life.
