    I made that switch. Trail to Ridge, and I have not regretted it at all. Both are great tires, but you will like the road manners of the Ridge Grapplers and the extra mpg or two I got from making the switch. Offroad, they are almost the same performance. Only places I have trouble with them is coming out of a mud hole right into an uphill, but honestly think I had similar issues with the Trail Grapplers.

    Iíve been considering a similar switch (STT Pros to Ridge). I hadnít heard before about the ridge grapplers not being great in the rain. Does anyone know if itís that tire or just something people arenít used to with these types of tires. In on 37x13.50 and just want something a little less aggressive on the highway. I can honestly say my jeep sees pavement 90% of the time

    I run Ridge Grapplers on my JL ( 37ís) and have no problems in the rain or on wet pavement. Iíll find out soon if they work on snow.

    I run the Exo Grapplers on my JKU 37x13.50x17 never had a problem in wet conditions. Work great in sand. I also spend 90% on street with no issues

    Same with some of the other fellas on here, I've only ran a stock set and my ridge grapplers. However going on a couple years of the RGers I've loved them. Over the course, they've gotten a bit noisier but I believe that just comes with the type of tires we run. Nothing significant or bothersome though. I believe there's a JK experience video that Nitto made across Alaska that showcases the tires really well. Would be hard for me to go to another brand at this point.

    Plenty of rain and mud in Florida and although I only have 7k miles on them, they perform great and look very aggressive

    Will the stock JK tire carrier support a 33 inch tire?

    Yes. You'll likely need longer spare tire bump stops though.

    Yes it will. The Rubicon tire is a 255/32"

    Edit: sorry for the multiple posts. Slow internet.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
