20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

While waiting to order my '14 CRL Summit, I went to Discount to look at getting some more aggressive tires.

I drive about 35k+ a year, and go off road for work weekly and like to off road a every few months with family and friends. In the mud, the stok tires slick up instantly and i have been stuck a few times in my '12 GC. I hope not again.

Talking to my guy at Discount, the best option seemed to be the Nitto Terra Grapplers in the same size as the stock tires. He likes them, says they will last as long if not longer than the stock tires and with offset tread pattern should not be too loud.

Does anybody have experience with these on there GC? Since I drive so much I want to make sure I am not sacrificing road quality, wet traction and noise for the occasional romp in the mud and off roading trip.

Thanks!

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

I'm rocking the Terra Grapplers on my 13' Overland. I love them! But, no way they will last longer than the goodyears. Just a far softer tire.

But, I highly recommend getting them. Quiet, comfy, makes the overland drive so much better.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

I can't comment on the terra grapplers for a JGC, but I am on my second set on my GMC truck. Got 90K on the first set, mostly highway driving, consistent rotation and tire pressure. They were louder than the stock tires by a little bit, and they did get louder when the tread was wearing thin. Never were they too loud or annoying. They were great in the wet, snow, and dirt. I would highly recommend them, and will buy a set for the JGC when needed. Hope that helps.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

I am looking into the same thing for my '13 overland, I am not having luck finding anything else comparable in stock size.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

The Nitto Grapplers about the only A/T tire that comes in 20's in the stock overland size.

I wish Cooper would offer their Zeon LTZ in 265/50R20. We should have a large group from this forum petition them to compete with the Nitto's in stock size.

I have them in the stock size on my 2012 Overland and couldn't be happier. I took some pics and put them in this section about a month ago.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

No experience with the terra graps but im running the falken rocky mountains from discount tire. They are the renamed Wild Peaks. Price is excellent and reviews are favorable. I love them so far, great ride, traction, quiet and have a mileage guaranty.
