Nitto Ridge Grappler | Coming Soon!



Nitto's New Hybrid Light Truck Tire

The Nitto Ridge Grappler combines the aggressive off-road performance of a mud-terrain tire with the on-road comfort of an all-terrain tire. Using its aggressive tread design, tread block stabilizers, and variable pitch tread pattern, the Ridge Grappler delivers excellent traction in mud, sand, and loose gravel and a surprisingly responsive, comfortable highway ride. High load carrying capacities from P-metric up to F-rated options. Whether you drive a daily work truck or an off-road adventure vehicle, the Nitto Ridge Grappler is a great choice.

-KEY FEATURES-

  • Variable Pitch Tread Pattern: Advanced sound equipment was used to create a pattern that provides a quiet and smooth highway ride.

  • Alternating Shoulder Groovers: Shoulder grooves are arranged in alternating widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction. Lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction.

  • Dual Sidewall: Like all Grapplers, the Ridge Grappler features two bold sidewall designs. One side features a more traditional pattern while the other side features a new, aggressive block design.

  • Reinforced Block Foundation: Adds rigidity to tread blocks to reduce flex.

  • Stone Ejectors: Protects the bottom of groove from stone drilling.

  • Staggered Should Lugs: Provides traction in off-road environments.

  • Edges: The alternating tapered edges and step block edges both provide additional biting edges for more traction.

Hmm, nothing smaller than a 17... interesting.

Not a fan of them looks wise, but maybe in person.

Last I checked, off-road tires are supposed to be functional, not for show

Hopefully they'll expand the lineup to include 16"...I happen to like my TRD 16's. Good review; definitely a contender to replace my KO2's.
