Iím running the Goodyear wrangler ultra terrain. (Discount tire exclusive). Iíve been super happy with them so far. Awesome in snow, not loud on the highway, decent in mud. I switched to these after years of BFG ko2 use and I am very happy with the decision.

I was thinking about using 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grappler G2's, are they any good, I haven't seen much out here about them? It will be mostly used on the street, maybe see the beach in the summer.

As a few others above, I now have the Yokohama Geolander A/T G015.

They are more street baised than I expected (in P metric) but they seem to ride great. Very quiet and balanced out very well with almost no weight. For the first time in 6 years my 4runner drives vibration free. The previous 2 sets of Nokians were causing my vibes or I finally got lucky with a good tire tech on the balance machine.

A/t

I recently got a 98 with 285/70r17 Nitto trail grapplers on it. I mainly drive on paved roads occasionally some trails and the dunes. Iím going to get a new set of all terrains and sell these. Was considering 265/70r17 either Nitto Terra grapplers, pro comp sport, or Nitto ridge grapplers. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Best to worst list for tires I've run on my yotas

Mud terrain:

1. Cooper STT Pro
2. Toyo M/T (good, just heavy)
3. Mastercraft MXT
4. Dean Radial SXT (discontinued)
5. Goodyear MTR/K (admittedly fairly worn down)

All terrain:

1. Cooper AT/3 (pre AT3/W update)
2. Toyo ATII Xtreme
3. Wild Country XTX Sport
4. BFG AT KO (not KO2)
5. Goodyear Duratrac

In my short time with the new Pro, I have really grown to like the "stock" Nitto Terra Grapplers. They're not too noisy on the road, quite grippy off of it, and have a nice mean look to them.

Time will tell how they wear, but I dont quite get why so many guys just swap them out right away.

Most under-rated off-road tire

okay???

They are far more than OK! I've had TK0s and wranglers, these surpass both those in offroad situations like mud, water, sand, and both those other tires got flats yet the michelins never did under the exact same conditions and dirt roads. I think they're very over looked and thus under rated by folks on here. Best on and off road tire for the money, period. Luck and enjoy your Runners!

I have a 2019 ORP that came with Nitto Terra Grapplers. We just did an 800 mile road trip on West Texas highways at 65 to 75 mph. Some of that driving was in hard rain. The truck handled fine and never did I experience any hydroplaning or other lack of traction. I do slow down some on tight curves because of my conservative nature. I'm happy with the stock tires so far. Any off roading I do will not be extreme so I imagine they will be fine there.

For ride quality I only buy p metric tires. P rated falken wildpeak at3w 265/70r17 or p rated yokohama G015 in the same aize. Last I checked that's about as big as you can get a P metric tire. Both ride exceptionally well and have good tread life, the Yokos balanced better.

I also really like Michilen LTX At2, have run through 4 sets on various trucks over the years. They ride great, last about 60k and do well with what I've had to tow. Most importantly they do really good in rain, which is a priority for me. Can get them in 18" as factory take offs from Tundras fairly easy and cheap on marketplace/craigslist. I always buy them used as take offs around $400 a set.

I have 1200 miles on a set of Toyo Open Country AT II - stock size. So far so good, decent tread and quiet on the highway. We'll see how they do in a Western NY winter

I'm running the Hankook Dynapro ATM's. I have no issues whatsoever with them. They're 2 years old, maybe 15 K miles and show no wear. They're quiet, balance well (and stay balanced) and work well in all weather. They also have the snowflake/mountain symbol for severe winter weather driving.

They don't have the visual "bling" factor of some tires, but I don't care about those things. For the way that I use my T4R, I couldn't have a better tire.

I ran Hankook Dynapro ATM's. For some reason this tire was terrible when the road was wet, the tire was less than 6 years old. Seemed like no traction off the line, and when braking.
Then ran Cooper Discoverer ATP. It was night and day concerning performance, loved those tires.
I running BF Goodrich K02 now. Maybe I have a bad set, these tires are hard to balance.
All the tires were stock 265 70/16R. MPG were the same on all 3 sets of tires.
