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.

Hopefully DT and Nitto will publish complete specs including tread depth,
weight etc.
We sure will! As soon as Nitto provides us with them.

Those look interesting! Do you sell those wheels in the picture? I can not find them on your website. XD128 MACHETE
We do not carry the Machete currently, however, we can special order this model for you.

Do you guys have a ball park as to how much they will cost?

I'm going to be needing new shoes soon, probably right around the time they will be ready for the public.

I'm running 285/75/17E

Thanks guys.....

Unfortunately we do not have pricing yet, but I'd imagine the cost will likely fall in between the Trail Grappler and Terra Grappler G2.

On a side note, it looks like the 285/75R-17 Ridge Grappler is slated for release sometime this September.

Any info on tread-life/wear would also be appreciated
currently running Pro-Comp xtreme M/T's - have 51K on them, getting louder by the week
these maybe a good compromise
currently running 305/65/17

We'll have to wait for first hand reviews to accurately gauge tread wear, but I imagine most sizes will wear pretty similar to the Terra Grappler G2.

Looks like they said a July release?
I'm at 35K on my Trail Grapplers 285/70/17 E's and I love em, but they are getting loud. I figure I might have about 10K left at the minimum.
I should be ready for a new set soon, looking forward to hearing more about these.
I was going to go back with what I have/like, but these might change my mind :)
