275/65r18 NTG

After long debate... I'm gonna go with the Nitto Terra Grapplers! I had these tires on my old truck and was pleased with them. I was going to get the Falkens Rocky mountains in the same size but I decided to go with what I know is good and the Falkens are only LT tires. Now, Hopefully the Nittos wont rub. I'm mounting them on stock 18's. Anyone have these tires? I'm having them installed Sat. morning and hoping to find out if they will clear before then so I can get some spacers. I've looked here and dont see anyone who has these tires in that size.... I have the RRO leveling kit as well. thanks guys! Pics to come!

Will do. Yeah, I will do some off-road. Nothing major ,just to go out hunting and play around on some trails. I hope they fit. I've seen a few tires in this size that work just haven't seen anyone with the nittos but I don't see why these wouldn't fit if others do.

the size fits for a fact seen it with my own eyes in person, but it all looked really close at park height

Me too. They're on! No rubbing during normal driving. Closest to rubbing at full turn is about 1/16 - 1/8 at the inside wheel well felt. Had to test them off road too.....hear a little rubbing while full turn going up a muddy bank. Nothing major at all and. expected some rubbing off road . I'm very happy. I will post more pics later when I take them. Rainy day so maybe tomorrow!

Yup! I think you would be fine in park mode too tho. The closest place to touching is inside front wheel well and it's not the curvature part of the felt so height shouldn't matter right there. If it did rub it would only be at full turn. Rides good and looks perfect.
