Not sure bout them but I got Bridgestone AT Revos and will never have another tire again. I got 33's and absolutely love them. Best in snow, rain, mud, whatever. Just my .02

If you had one set that sucked, why get another, IMO. Cherokee, NC? I'm over the mountain in Wanyesville so I'm looking for something that'll be worth something on these mountain roads too.

Thanks man. A lot of people say the mud grappler won't last very long. How are the Toyo M/T's on mountain roads?

I had a set of mud grapplers, would not own another set. They wore about what could be expected, had about 13K and about 1/4 tread on them when I took them off. They had road manners like a tractor tire, you could feel every tread as it rolled to a stop. The worst part was the noise, you couldn't talk to the passenger if you had the window down and you could hear tire noise long before you heard the truck. Hard to even hear the truck while driving it.
Sounded like a farm tractor in road gear.

I had them on a lifted F150..... noisy as ever. They wore Ok for me, they had about 10K on them when I sold the truck, and still had a lot of tread left. AT least 75%.

I rotated them every oil change, I think that is the key to making them last a while.

Now I have terra grapplers on my LMM.

The key Ive noticed in ANY aggressive tire pattern is to rotate often and keep air pressure exact. Ive seen super swampers last quite awhile on that alone. You look at the Baja MTZ's (think thAts waht they called). I liked those on my buddys truck.

Sound Is Not Issue I Actually Like Their Sound Kinda, But Wat Yal Are Saying Is With Good Often Rotation And Pressure Monitoring I Can Get Good Treadlife? Because This I Can Do If It Will Get Good Treadlife, Also Any Knowledge Of How Safe In Rain? My Toyo Mts Are Safest I've Ever Had In Rain Never Hydroplaned, Also Pretty Great Life, I Just Like The Mud Grappler Appearance Alot, Just Want To Know How They Should Do

Mine seem to be wearing pretty well for an aggressive tire. I'm going to guess I'll get 20k out of them. Considering it's a soft tire meant to grip in off road conditions I don't think that amount of mileage is bad.

Rain handling is good. I was taking it easy thinking they were going to break loose on me on wet off ramps but they gripped well and I was able to go as fast as I liked. Does well in the sand too.

And they're an E rated tire so I don't worry towing heavy with them.

I own a set of Pro Comp Xtreme M/T's and I love um. I say they have a little road noise but all in all a great looking and proforming tire.

i love their appearance and sound, i think i'll give em a shot i hope they last!!! i don't tow much jus few fourwheelers/dirtbikes here and there, and won't be burnin em off, just curvy steep mountain 2 lanes seem to be harder on tires, i want to get best mileage possible out of them, they will be 35 12.50 18's, does anyone know how often i should rotate?? and what pressure to maintain front and rear in them to LAST LONGEST???

Hate to let you know this but Toyo tires and Nitto tires are made by the same company and just have different brands. Toyo is the parent company of Nitto. For those non-believers look at the Toyo M/T and the Nitto Mud grapplers, all are available in the exact same sizes. Same with many of their other tires.

As for me I like the Toyos, but have always been a BFGoodrich fan. All of their tires are much lighter and just as strong. They get the power to the ground better. But I have been running Toyo M/T b/c the new KM2s don't have the size I want. Ha!

Love my Mickey MTZ's. Got 20k on them and 50% or better tread left.
