Stock size 18" Bridgestones or 255/60/18 Terra Grapplers???

I'm just about ready to pull the plug on a set of A/T tires. I had Terra Grapplers on my 2011 Overland and LOVED them. Unfortunately they aren't made in the stock 18" size on my 14 Limited. That said I have two choices:

1) go with Bridgestone Dueler Revo 2 in the stock size (read some Reviews stating bad tread life...I drive a LOT)

2) go with Terra Grapplers in 255/60/18 size....very slight diff on diameter and 10mm narrower than stock. Worried about not using stock
Size

What would you do?

Well considering that I love my Grappler's, that's what I would recommend. The sizing difference won't be a concern.

I'm think I typically have gotten about 40k on the Revo ATs with various vehicles.

I really like them. The only other tires I've considered lately are the Duratechs.

I certainly wouldn't go with smaller tires. The Terra Grappler is available in 285/60 (31.3") and 275/65 (32"), both of which will fit on your Limited.

Or, as you said, the Dueler is a really nice tire, as is the Michelin LTX AT/2. The Cooper AT3 and Zeon LTZ are also great choices. Lots of options out there.

My grapplers did NOT fit, I had to bend the pinch weld. Just a heads up if you plan on going to 32"s (LT275/65/18).

Put the Revo2's on my WK2 about 3000 miles ago. Great so far. I drive a lot of highway and no complaints - actually improved the handling and ride over the 20".

Have had these on other vehicles with much success.

Have never owned the TG's so cannot compare.
