Not exactly related to Nitto's, but I am looking for tire recommendations.

I have a 2008, I live in the mountains (Utah) but don't have need for snow tires or studs just an all season, I no longer use my T4R for off-roading so probably don't need an all-terrain (for that reason).

I would likely purchase at Costco (free rotations without "waiting" as I'm shopping there anyway). My Costco recommends one of these three (and I'd just wait for the $100 rebate so all are priced comparably at $1,000 for a set all in/installed) - stock size 265-60-R18:

BFG Trail-Terrain
BFS Alenza AS Ultra
Mich Defender LTX MS2

Any opinions on these three?
Or, maybe go to Discount Tire instead for something significantly better?

Thx

Definitely a lot of threads on this if you search around. Cannot go wrong with a Michelin Defender LTX from everything I've heard for an on-road tire with good all season capability.

Personally I'd avoid Bridgestone. I've never been particularly happy with their tires (had a set of them awhile back on an Infiniti) and they're often on the pricey side.

Nitto Tire'''s Recon Grappler A/T vs Ridge Grappler: Real World Comparison | DrivingLine

Good article comparing the Recon Grappler to the Ridge Grappler. I've had the Ridge Grappler on my truck for years (on my 2nd set) with no issues, it's been a great tire. Much better than the Terra Grappler in my opinion.
