Toyo mt in 305 still seemed to have good traction the few times I drove my truck with them. 305 wide in the a/t was junk.

I haven't tried the toyo mts but the toyo ats in wider sizes aren't great on anything other than dry pavement.


If that was the case. Every sports car would have skinny tires.....

Any thoughts on the Nitto Ridge Grappler? I'm thinking a set of 295-65-20 will be perfect

I’ve run nitto at’s and And mud grapplers. They sucked ass. The toyo at’s were ok and the toyo mt’s have all been great. I ran a set of toyo proxes for a little bit. They gripped like crazy on any road. Wet or dry. But I’m off-road to much so I stayed up with the mt’s.

Any thoughts, recommendations? etc?[/QUOTE]

Did the 420 thing for a while after I lowered truck down, had fun. Started getting annoying getting stuck in my backyard. Came to my senses and leveled truck, and ran mts, and I absolutely agree with others- great traction, and the noise was not an issue (to me).They were 35x12.5x22s. Rotated every oil change and had very good results. On terra grapplers now only bc I got a killer deal after a scary blowout otw to work one morning, and just happened to come across them at same time. I tow a 5'r with them and also keep them rotated and have been pleased. Slightly better hwy mileage. I'll definitely return to the mt once these run their course. Can't beat the look even worn down as Sootie mentioned.

Buddy has ridge grapplers on a 2500 Cummins ccsb, he tows quite a bit, and I know it doesn't help their life- but they've worn down much more than we anticipated. I was considering them myself for the future.

About to stuff a set of mts on our 17' 6.7 crew/work truck. They'll see brutal right of way conditions in eastern nc , and lengthy hwy runs. Can't wait.

So the general consensus here is that MT style tires last longer and perform better on wet pavement for daily driving? I never would have guessed this in a million years.

I have liked the Terra grapplers on past trucks, but have no experience on a bigger truck that I tow regularly with or drive on wet roads.

Im also in the market for a new set of tires.
I am also surprised to hear that MTs do so well. Id like a more aggressive tire, but without the tire noise.

I have had two sets of Terra Grapplers. 295/65/20. First set lasted 80k miles. 50% towing 18k pound trailer. Second set has 60k and still has 7/32 left.

I believe they changed the tire compound on the new terra grapplers.
