Nitto Ridge Grapplers are awesome!

Recommended Posts

Just passing it on to fellow truck owners- I've had the new Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my truck now for a couple thousand miles, and I have to say they are awesome. QUIET and smooth. Before that I had Cooper S/T Maxx's and those things were tough as hell, looked great, but really loud at lower speeds around 40-50 (so basically all around the city). These Ridge Grapplers are so much better.

 

295/70/18, 1.5 inch level in the front, no rubbing at all.

Ok I will. I expected them to be wider. They're taller (34"), but they don't look any wider than the 285 width Coopers I had on it before.

 

They seem to be narrow for a 295 tire.

I'm getting those exact tires installed on my 2500hd now!! Went with the 295/60/20. Can't wait to see how they turn out

You're gunna love them. I've gotten in some pretty good mud with and they did alright (no better than a BFG or the Coopers), but overall it's a fantastic do-it-all tire that's quieter, tough, and looks great.

I had 35" Toyo MTs on my lifted Silverado before I bought my 2500hd but they were heavy and I wanted to go with something alittle different.

I love mine, 305/55-20 on my 2016 3500. F load rating too. Swapped Toyo AT in 35" and the Nittos are quieter.

Looks dang good, the nittos are very quiet that was the first thing I noticed. The second thing I noticed is I could feel more bumps, time to upgrade the stock shocks.

My boss just picked up a set of these to replace the Nitto Terra grapplers (E rated) 285/65/18 tires he put on after we put a 2" RC leveling kit on his 2009 1500 4x4. He got over 70,000 miles out of the Terra's which impressed the hell out of me. Though he needed upper ball joints/a-arms. He has over 150,000 on his truck and is not easy on it. He was very religious about oil changes and tire rotations, his cousin owns a garage, which helps to keep the maintenance schedule accurate. I/we can only hope for similar results with the Ridge Grapplers.

70,000 miles out of the Terra grapplers!!! That's crazy, I'm hoping to get 40,000 miles out of the ridge grapplers on my 2500 HD, these trucks are heavy so I'll have to stay on top of air pressure and rotating.

They were on it when I bought it, Fuel Anza D558 is what I found online when I looked them up. Thanks for the compliment, I love the setup as well.

How much rougher would you guys say the ride is with the Ridge Grapplers? I don't expect them to be soft by any means, I just wonder how much of a ride difference there is between these and most tires that are same/similar size since they are F-rated as opposed to many of the E-rated tires?
