Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

Had a blowout in one of the Forterras at 20,000 miles. Time to replace all 4. Can't decide to go w a more aggressive like the Terra Grapplers or Cooper LTZ's, or w something like the Crosstek. I've got a 05 Rubi as well, so not concerned about off-road ability. Problem is, I don't want a rougher ride with AT tires. Any feedback would be appreciated.

That is the tire I am leaning towards when I replace the OEM Fortera's.

Re: Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

I was very tempted buy them when NTB had buy 2 get 2 Free. So far, the Latitudes haven't really failed me that bad. We haven't had deep snow yet. I'll probably run them until they are worn more. I like the looks of Crossteks, and hopefully they won't hurt MPG that bad (compared to an actual AT tire).

Re: Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

I have the Crossteks and have loved them. Just a fyi, they like to tramline on rain grooved roads.

Re: Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

My wife went with the Crossteks from NTB; they are a good tire and handle well. Snow is not as good as my Michelin LTX M/S 2's but given the fact we never seem to get any snow around here it hasn't been an issue. They look sharp.

Re: Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

I don't like the comments about tramlining or snow performance. That will change my mind. We had about an inch yesterday -- that stuck to the road. The Latitudes were slipping all over during stops and corners. Acceleration seemed fine, but stopping was scary. I can't wait until they are worn out to justify replacement.

Google for pics. They do look good for a highway tire:

Re: Anyone running Nitto Crosstek tires?

They look good on that link and they do have the 275 55 20 option. If anyone is running them, I'd like to see some pictures of them on a Jeep. Thanks a lot.
