Talking **Mileage Update** Nitto Trail Grappler 295/70/17 Installed w/ Pics

Hey fellas,

Just wanted to whore my whip out a little and post some pics of the freshly released Nitto Trail Grappler 295/70/17s. They are nice .

I will update with a review once I get out there a bit more, but as first as first impressions go, they are a awesome! Style A+. Noise A+. Aggressive A+.

Edit: Reviews!
Nitto Trail Grappler MT Tire Test - Four Wheeler Magazine
http://www.fjc-mag.com/index.php/Jul...appler-mt.html

The guy at the shop said they were the easiest mud terrain he has ever balanced. Not sure what that says about the tire, but it sure sounded good.

No rub turning around to park with an Icon Stage 1 lift, but I'll also have to report back on that, as I was going about 1 mph.

Damn those are sweet.... I just got an email about these today. They look great on the FJ.

What's the verdict? Noise level, driving comfort, and of course offroad capabilities. What were you running before?

I like the looks of these. I too wish to know how they do off-road.
