    Nitto Mud Grapplers

    How fast do these Nitto Mud Grapplers wear out? They look mean but I just didnít know how long they would last.

    Nitto Mud Grapplers

    Depends on the jeep and the tire. What size? I got around 35-40 on mine but had a couple flats that got mixed in the rotation which helped.

    That was a 35x12.5.

    I havenít run the Mud grapplers but I did run the Trail grapplers before making the jump to 37ís and I got about 35k before I made the switch to coopers. They still had half the tread on them but did start developing a bit of a pull. Not sure if the Mud grapplers have that same issue. By comparison my STT pros have just over 30k on them and have more than half their tread left. Granted I rotate them as a set of 5 every oil change.

    What OverlanderJK said. I ran a set of 40x15.50s and they wore very nicely. I think I had about 30k on mine when I swapped them out and they still had a lot of good tread.

    Mud grapplers donít have a pull and they donít last as long as the trail grapplers.

    I have 40000 on mine 35x12.5. I have rotated all 5 every 3000 miles. Still have decent tread left but will soon be replacing.

    They are an exceptional offroad tire, itís become one of my all time favorites. On road manners are surprisingly very good (I donít know about snow packed streets though?), however the tire is obnoxiously loud on the street and highway.....and even worse if you are not dedicated to rotating them every 3k-5k miles. I learned from a close friend who is sponsored by Nitto to run them with much higher air pressure on the street to get more miles out of them (I run high 30ís to 40 psi). I have over 50,000 miles on this set, with a lot of room left for wear on them. Also, the Mud Grappler-ATX/KMC Slab wheel combo I run has never had one wheel weight needed to balance these 40ís. Only a slight vibration at/above 80mph when one of the tires is up front. As soon as I rotate them to the rear the minor vibration disappears.

    Would this be the same if you were discussing trail graps? The pressures and no weights

    Different tires all together. I donít think they really compare having run both of them.

    Would you guys run the mud graps again if they were quieter? That seems to be the only thing I have heard negative about them. I am really tempted to run them.

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.
