Review of the Nitto Mud Grappler
The Nitto Mud Grappler extreme terrain is somewhat different in appearance than most Mud Terrain tires.  The Mud Grappler has sort of a reptilian scaled, random lug, computer generated, appearance to its tread design making it stand out in the crowd of mud terrain tires on the market.  The lateral tread design with deep voids, wide, siped lugs does improve offroad performance.  Mud, sand and rock are some of the terrains where the Mud Grappler excels with paddle-like lugs to propel the vehicle through the terrain.  Sidewalls are well protected by large ,very unique sidewall lugs in its tread design that also give the Nitto Mud Grappler an impressive profile appearance that we like.  On the road the Mud Grappler does produce some lug slap, giving them a nice hum going down the road that will complement the aggressive look as you pass by.  Handling is said to be decent with construction design engineered to perform well on-road as well as offroad.  The Nitto is one of the more expensive Mud Terrain tires on the market with a limited size availability. 

 

Manufacturers description of this tire: 

Nitto Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain
Featuring a radical tread pattern, the new Nitto Mud Grappler offroad tire takes “aggressive design” and extreme offroad performance to a new level.

Nitto Tire North America, Inc. introduces the new Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain radial tire, the latest offering from Nitto Tires specifically designed for light trucks and SUVs. With the introduction of the Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain, Nitto Tire expands its Light Truck tire line-up to encompass extreme off-pavement needs.

The Nitto Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain tires are designed to provide exceptional off-road traction. The Mud Grappler features monstrous 15mm side-lugs, which provide excellent sidewall puncture resistance along with outstanding rock crawling and mud traction. The computer designed tread pattern features a high void ratio for excellent clearing of mud and dirt, anti-side slip grooves for better lateral traction, and sipes for performance on snow and slush.

With a unique ”raptor claw” tread design and extreme offroad capabilities, the Nitto Mud Grappler is a tire that truly allows you to forge your own trail.

For the fearless off-roader who lives on a steady diet of mud and gravel, Nitto presents the Mud Grappler Extreme Terrain. The Mud Grappler features monstrous 15mm side-lugs, which provide excellent sidewall puncture resistance along with outstanding rock crawling and mud traction. It’s one tough tire that loves to play dirty.

  • High void ratio for excellent clearing of mud and dirt
  • Siping optimized to resist aquaplaning and provide snow traction
  • Anti-side slip grooves for better lateral traction
  • Two full width steel belts ensure optimum contact patch both on and off-road

Durability and highway Speed Stability

  • Two spiral wound nylon cap plies for enhanced high-speed stability
  • Wide steel belts provide durability and long life
  • Three-ply polyester high turn-up casing for improved traction, steering response, high-speed stability, and durability
  • High bead filler for good traction, steering response, high-speed stability, and durability

Construction and Uniformity

  • Single strand bead construction provides excellent uniformity
  • Segmented mold construction ensures uniform design

Nitto Tire does not endorse the operation of any vehicle in an unsafe or unlawful manner. SUVs & trucks handle differently than ordinary passenger cars. Avoid unnecessary sharp turns or other abrupt maneuvers that may cause loss of control, possibly leading to rollover or other accidents that could result in serious injury.

Warning!: Use extreme care with any vehicle with large diameter tires and increased ground clearance due to the risk of roll over and possible injury or death. Use extreme caution and reduce speed during turns or abrupt maneuvers. Always wear seat belts, drive safely, and recognize that vehicle stability is reduced in off-road terrain. Do not drive a vehicle with an altered suspension unless you are familiar with its unique handling characteristics and are confident with your ability to maintain control under all driving conditions.
