Nitto is known not only for its high quality in tire manufacturing but also for the tires' impressive tractions in the conditions they're geared towards. The Mud Grapplers work great in the mud and rocks; the Terra Grapplers work well on all terrains; the Dura Grapplers are killer high-mileage towing tires; and the Dune Grapplers don't even need to be deflated to work unbelievably in the sand. For these reasons, we were excited to get our feelers onto the new Trail Grappler-a tire built to be aggressive and hardcore enough to take on tough trails while still being able to be driven every day to work. We were able to try it on a number of vehicles, and the consensus is in: This tire works well on Jeeps or fullsize 4x4s.
