  1. 4 Barely used Nitto Terra Grappler G2’s, 12/32 tread left, brand new they have 13/32 tread, have about 6,000 miles on them, no holes, no patches, no curb rash. They still have the hairs on the sidewall! I lifted my truck and bought the same tire in a bigger size. My loss your gain. New on Discount Tire they are $1,384.00 plus tax, asking $1,050.00 for the set. I will not sell separately. Cash only, local pick up only. Located in NJ
  2. Hi all, I am a relatively new member to the forums and a first time truck owner. I've had my truck for about 2 years now and finally decided it was time to upgrade my baby. After months of researching, I decided to start off with a leveling kit, wheels, tires and rode on that for about 8000 miles before I saved up enough to do a lift. As it stands, I decided to go with the 4 inch BDS lift kit with the fox shocks upgrade. I narrowed my choices to Fabtech and BDS after tons of reading on this forum and the conclusion I came to for the price points, BDS made more sense and appears to be more spot on with the suspension geometry. Given that I am no expert, I could be wrong on that, so definitely don't quote me. The shop that did my install is an authorized BDS retailer and as a result, they prefer installing BDS kits on their trucks. One thing I noticed is that most people try to jump up to the coilovers right out of the gates in the name of preserving ride quality and Im here to say that you don't need to do that. Even the guy at the shop told me that it wasn't necessary to do and it doesn't guarantee that you will enjoy that ride quality. I was in that same boat until I decided to go ahead and try out what BDS has to offer before I spend more money on the kit itself. Ride Quality My experience of driving my truck pre-level and post-level - I felt no difference in the drive itself except some amount of additional harshness going over speed bumps. At that point, I expected that amount of harshness, in fact I expected worse based on reading what people had to say about how leveling kits ride. My experience of driving my truck after going from the leveling kit to the 4" lift - the ride is absolutely beautiful. Having driven a friends Yukon Denali, I can say that the ride of the truck is slightly floaty on the road similar to how the denalis ride, yet still very connected (not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but me). I absolutely love the way the truck rides and I feel that it's on par with stock, if not a little more insulated with the added suspension travel that absorbs some of the bumps and imperfections of the road. As it stands, I have driven with the kit for about 450 miles thus far and I have zero intentions of adding the coilovers to the setup. (500 mile suspension re-torquing coming up soon) Another added point of comfort for me is if my ride quality does deteriorate for some reason and the coilovers become a necessity, getting rid of the front shocks is not like throwing away an expensive pair of shocks. I also potentially have the option of adding kings in the event I ever need to go down that route... I hope that for someone out there, this helps make a decision on the kits with the plethora of information available and I'm happy to answer questions about this lift. Daily Drivability With this being my first lifted truck and first truck to begin with, I was really concerned about how drivable the vehicle would be compared to stock. The only difference I notice regarding drivability is making a turn when the wheel is at full lock in either direction feels like there is more turning radius involved, but hasn't been an issue. The bed and the bed steps are still very reachable / usable - I'm 5'8". The sidesteps are a little bit taller to get up to than before but it's not a pain in the ass or to the point where I hate the truck or my decision - I'm going to be keeping an eye out for a good deal on articulating running boards from AMP or RBP eventually. For anyone who enjoys driving fast - I haven't felt powerloss in the vehicle, especially being that mine is a 6.2L. I did definitely notice that there are a few moments where shifts take longer, but Im sad to say I need to address an issue that involves the torque converter and creates a shudder when accelerating as though you're driving across rumble strips but that's a different topic for a different time. It drives fast, feels stable, and is fun as hell. Fuel Economy Impact I honestly haven't had any impact on my fuel consumption since I began upgrading items on the vehicle. This might change over time, but as it stands I get about 20-22 MPG highway and a range of 13-16 MPG City based on traffic levels. Other Notes - 2017 GMC Sierra SLT Premium Plus Package with Z71 Package | 6.2L V8 - Denali Cluster Retrofit - 33" Nitto Ridge Grapplers - SCA Performance 20x9 Black Widow Wheels | 0 mm offset - Blacked out emblems - Rough Country Tri Fold Bed Cover - GM Borla Exhaust with Dual Outlets (There's actually a tilt downward in the exhaust because the dealer failed to correctly install them with the appropriate hangers to the frame - going to be corrected soon) - Black Chrome Exhaust Tips - Rear Wheel Spacers soon to come (BDS lifts push the front track width out, I want to even out the stance) - AMP Research power steps soon to come - Cold Air Intake soon to come Pictures
  3. Hey, I'm new to this site. Just put a 2.5inch RC leveling kit in my 2014 silverado 4x4. I really want to get 305/55r20 Nitro trail grapplers on some 20x9 rims +18 offset. I'm wondering if anyone has this setup and what kind of rubbing issues you have if any. I'd love to see some pics or even suggestions on the next tire size down that would fit if the 305s don't. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks guys
  4. I am buying new tires and have read nothing but good things about the Nitto Ridge Grapplers (35x12.5x20). I decide that there is no downside to trying them out, and start the process to buy them and notice the only come in an F rated 12 ply. Is anyone else running this tire on a 1500? How is the ride on it? Also what PSI are you running the tire at. I believe the 35x12.5x18 Ridge Grappler is F rated as well.
  5. A flat Good Year Wrangler SR-A set the tire shopping in motion, and a 10% off sale on Nittos convinced me to try the 35x11.50r20 Ridge Grapplers. My goal was to get as much tire as possible without having to adjust the suspension so as to retain the stock ride, keep costs down, and achieve the aesthetic I like for modern 4x4 trucks. I was prepared to crank the front keys a few turns for up to 1" of leveling, but my preference was to avoid this if possible. Ridge grapplers have two sidewall designs on the tire; one side reminded me of Transformers, so I went with the more subdued sidewall. This doesn't impact fitment. After about 20 miles of driving and some parking lot testing turning the steering back and forth, the tires fit fine with only a few close spots throughout the range of motion. I've seen people report frame rub at full lock with these sizes; it hasn't happened to my truck yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it rubs mildly while turning sharply over rough terrain. Rear clearance is fine. A few tips: Check the actual dimensions of the tire you're choosing. The Nittos are 35s, but the actual diameter is about 34.7". Each manufacturer is a little different, and most list the true dimensions on their websites. The same applies to metric sizes - a BFG may be narrower than a Toyo. Looking at my truck, 35x12.50r20 would have fit too, but would probably rub on the wheel wells while going over bumps during a turn. The 11.50s provide just enough extra room that my truck has yet to rub, though my mileage count is low (20 miles since install) so I'll update this thread as I add miles. Expect to lose fuel economy. No data yet, but I anticipate a 1-2 MPG drop. Aftermarket wheels change everything. The popular offset or "poking" look makes it harder to stuff big tires without a lift. If you're changing wheels and tires, disregard this thread. What's next? Fresh oil, a detail, and maybe a front window tint. I'd like a Corsa, but they're $$$. Please excuse the dirty truck:

  10. Yeah, I know. ANother tire thread. Ugh. But before you shoot me, I've got a slightly different kinda tire issue... Well, my Goodyear SRA's bit the dust, so after a bunch of research, I decided on a set of Falken Wildpeak A/T3W in 275/65R18. I have now been back to Discount Tire three times for a constant vibration problem that will just not go away. DT has been awesome, no issue with them. I really had high hopes for these tires (they are SOOO much better in the rain than the SRA's), but they're just not working for me. I'm thinking one of them is out of round, though a couple of them took (what I thought was) a lot of weight to balance out, over 6oz. This is my 2nd set of Falken tires (had them on a Focus a number of years ago), so I've lost confidence in them. Anyhow... Discount Tire has offered to take them back and get me into another tire. I think I have narrowed it down to 2 different ones, trying to stay in my budget. I don't need a LT tire, to heavy for my needs. I think the choices that fit me the best are: Cooper Discoverer AT3 Nitto Terra Grappler G2 I want an AT tire, but the BFG KO2's are out of my price range. I've ruled out a couple of others for one reason or another, so I'm leaning more towards the Nitto. Opinions? Thoughts?

  13. So a couple weeks ago, I added a 2013 Tahoe LTZ to the driveway. Immaculate truck that's fully loaded that I got for a song. Well I got bored and decided to see what it would look like with my 22" OE CK156s and 33" hankook ATs off my 2015 silverado would look like so I swapped em out. Well I expected rubbing since the tahoe is stock height, but surprisingly none and it just looked too good to take em off. Well that gave me an excuse to buy the super rare OEM 22" CK159s and wrapped em in 33" nitto terra grapplers. I think the results are great! Check out pics and lemme know what u think! The last pic is my original ck156s on my silvy before the swapping
  14. I am running 305/55/20 trail grapplers and need to know the correct air pressure. I have them on 20x10 fuel mavs and for some reason it seems they are riding rough compared to normal. Mileage on them is around 18k. Debating on changing them to Toyo at's after this set maybe that will help with some road noise...?
  15. Hey all, time to beat that dead horse again. I was wondering if I could get away with running 20x9 Hostages with a +1 offset on a completely stock suspension 2016 z71 double cab. I might do a 1.5" rough country level this summer but I want to be able to run them now without the level and without rubbing. I plan on going pretty small with tires, something like a 265 60/20 or a 285 55/20. If i have to I'll just run the +20 offset ones, just thought I'd check with y'all first. Thanks ahead of time!
  16. I am running a RCX 5" lift also with .5" spacer and currently running Nitto trails in 305/55/20 on 20x10 -12 fuel Mav rims. I would like to upgrade tread size with the Toyo At II's, problem is I am not sure the biggest size I can go with the 10 wide (without major rubbing) rim??? Any suggestions?? Thanks!
  17. So I've had a 2" RC leveling kit installed on my '14 Sierra SLT for about 4 months now, and since then put on 295/70/18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2's on 18" Method Mesh's. I love my wheel/tire combo, but every time I walk up to my truck I'm somewhat dissatisfied with my leveling kit. There is still a rake, and my front end is still 1.5-2" lower than the rear. My question is, in lieu of putting a bigger leveling kit or a lift on my truck, is there a way to get my front end higher and still keep the nice stock ride?
  18. 2009 5.3 z71 afm ext cab. want to clear 35 or 33 inch tires, looking for a wide stance. how much lift am I looking at roughly? im thinking I want 12 inch width? 20 or 18 inch wheels? how do the space and blocks work exactly? what size would get me a good wide stance? im new to off road suspension and tires. any help, comments, or links to good priced wheels and tires is useful and deeply appreciated. kinda dead set on nitto mud grapplers but wheels I have no idea yet. trying to figure out a color scheme for the truck still. thanks - mike
  19. hey how is it going. trying to figure out what size tire i can run on my 2015 chevy 2500hd I leveled it with rough country kit and i just bought American racing AR901 rims that are 20in x 9 just trying to get some info and advice on what tire size that wont rub. thank you
  20. hey how is it going guys. I just leveled my chevy 2500 hd with rough country leveling kit and im trying to figure out what size tire to put on my American Racing AR901 rims they are 20in x 9. any idea? thank you.
  21. So, it's finally tire time for my '06 Sierra again. I replaced the Goodyear Wranglers that came on my truck with Nitto Crossteks 3 1/2 years ago. Wear has been excellent on both--I bought the truck with 38k on the odometer and put almost 80k on the Goodyear's. Now the Nittos have over 70k on them. Honestly, if my truck wasn't 15 months overdue for an inspection, I'd squeeze out another 10k or so. I've never had the tires balanced and the truck was last aligned when they were installed. Also, I might have rotated them every 15-20k...more so when I had a good air compressor. Even so, the tires have worn fairly evenly and would have passed and inspection easily when it was first due. Anyway, my truck is now at 190k miles and still going strong. I didn't pay much attention when I bought the current tires, and just noticed they are P265/70/17. The LT265/70/17E ones are currently $30 less than I paid, and I'm seriously considering sticking with Crossteks. They've been quiet, comfortable, have pulled a poorly loaded trailer weighing 10,000 lbs from Louisiana to Georgia, and have done everything I've asked, despite the current ones being passenger tires. One tire has a superficial (but scary looking, at first glance) gash in the sidewall that appeared while the truck sat dormant for 9 months. At least two have a plug or two in them from various screws and nails picked up over the years. All lose air evenly (or not at all) depending on the season. I checked it last week for the first time in two months and each tire still held the 38 psi I inflated them to awhile ago. The Goodyear Wranglers' last hurrah was when I got bogged down in the front yard a few years ago; steady snow and ice for a week and then a rainy 50-degree Christmas Day, coupled with a failure to engage 4wd in a timely manner, led to an embarrassing situation in which the truck was sunk to the wheels without any traction. At the time I wanted to upgrade to 285/70/17 Terra Grapplers after reading good things here...now I'm of the opinion that bigger tires aren't needed on a truck pushing 200k miles, not to mention that I've read some less-than-stellar reviews of the Terra Grappler's mileage since then. In a tight spot, I went with what was on sale and ended up with the Crossteks. Besides the price, I was drawn to their claim of being engineered for wet conditions: South Louisiana is known for torrential rains at times, and Coastal Georgia isn't much better. Anyway, what has been your experience with these tires? Am I a fool not to shop around more? Are there any tires with similar qualities that could be had for less ($155/tire right now)? I'll probably be replacing the tires in a week or so, so there's plenty of time to change my mind.
