New 4Runner with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires

I got a new 2022 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Premium with the XP Predator Package. It came standard with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Are these tires any good? I've never heard of Nitto until now. A month from now, I've got to drive it 2,000 miles, mostly highway miles, and am wondering about the tires. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Nitto is actually a quality tire, and that particular tire is very popular in the Toyota and Jeep community with people that off-road as well as do a lot of pavement driving.

I would be very happy if those had come on my 4Runner, it's actually a fairly expensive tire, and it's superior to anything that Toyota offers from the factory.

Before my interest in off-roading, it was "hot-rodding." Nitto was the ubiquitous, high quality, go-to drag radial tire. When I started looking at 4Runners, I was surprised to find out that not only did Nitto manufacture all-terrain tires, but they came standard on TRD wheels. My '19 has the Terra Grapplers and I'm pretty happy with them. I have put them through some pretty extreme conditions, and they performed exceptionally well. Relatively quiet on pavement as well. I actually plan on going to the Ridge Grapplers when these wear out.

I was trying to find Ridge Grapplers when it was tire upgrade time, but they were nowhere to be found, so I ended up with Wildpeaks. I had the Nittos on my Expedition and they were great all around tires.

Same here, could not find the Grapplers and went with the Toyo ATIIIs. Maybe Toyota bought them all?

Since they come standard on the XP Predator package, Toyota may very well have bought them all (or most of them).

XP Predator Package? That sounds like one of SE Toyota Distributors "custom packages."

Wouldn't shock me if they bought up a bunch of the tires in the region. A lot of those SE packages are 3rd party bolt-ons done at the port facility, SE region is like it's own world when it comes to Toyota operations...

I did this today, actually, on my 2019. I concluded after a lot of research that the 275/70/R17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers in a 10-ply LT tire would suit my TRD Pro well Im extremely impressed so far, and I absolutely love how they look.

100% true Id suggest to anyone thats planning on changing anything to order it no-frills, no XP, no side steps, no anything exterior bolt on from Toyota. Not even weather mats, as WeatherTech makes them better, and there are others that are cheaper, not name brand, that perform as well as WeatherTech.

The Toyota hood/bug deflector is definitely good though.

Ridge grapplers are an awesome all terrain tire for pavement driving. Supringly quiet and very comfortable ride for sure. The fact that these come on the XP predator package is a nice touch. I'm sure these tires will preform well for offroad and snow driving as well.

I'm biased towards Duratracs for anything offroad and snow. But I do admit, they are noisy and don't handle well in the rain.

Congrats on the new toy!

Mine lasted 45K miles! I did admittedly change out for Mickey Thompsons which are louder, get 1mpg less and are better off road. I may return to them based on how far my current tires make it.

I am hoping to swap out the oem Bridgestone tires with these at the dealer when I pick up my new vehicle next month.
