The Trail Grappler® M/T blends some of the off-road performance of the Mud Grappler® with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler® to create a tire that is both aggressive and quiet. For off-road performance, the 3-ply sidewall and thick rubber construction increase puncture resistance. On the tread surface, the blocks provide additional biting edges that command lateral stability and enhance forward traction. For on-road comfort, Nitto’s engineers used advanced sound analysis equipment to reduce noise levels commonly associated with off-road tires.
Z Groove provides lateral stability and mud traction.
Stone ejectors aid in tread protection, stone rejection and mud clearing.
Deep center sipes help resist hydroplaning and increases traction in wet conditions.
3D tapered grooves add additional biting edges for off-road performance.
The balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.
Reinforced shoulder grooves add additional off-road and all-season performance without comprimising block stiffness.
Advanced sound analysis equipment was used to systematically reduce the noises normally heard when driving on off-road tires. The result is a tire 34% quieter at city speeds and 36% quieter at highway speeds.*
The 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance.
Nitto’s proprietary, automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tires. This creates a smooth ride on paved roads.
Each Trail Grappler M/T has two sidewall designs so you can pick which one faces the road. One side has stylized lettering with V-shaped buttresses and the other has traditional lettering with flat buttresses.
