I liked them a lot. Bought 37's unused from a buddy and ran them on the Ram. They did pretty well and I didn't air them down. Thought they seemed to wear fast on the road, but it was a very heavy vehicle I had them on. The molded in claws on the tread were entertaining.


No fucking way I would pay retail for them.

I Think The Tread Pattern Is Sweet. Kinda Like The Bfg Krawler. Krawler Is The Shit Out West,but We Don't Have Many Rocks. I've Read That The Nitto Wears Slow On Pavement. I'll Spend 75% Of The Time On Pavement So Its One Of My Concerns.

So Nitto Vs. Bfg Krawler Vs. Swamper S.s. M-16 What Would You Buy????????

I have the terra grapplers and they are sweet on the snow. But they do wear fast. Mine have only about 20,000 miles on them and they are noticeable wearing. They seem to be a quality tire im my opinion.

I ran Krawlers for about 3 years but not on a DD. They wore really well. Far better than my Irok's.

I've Always Heard Swampers Wear Shitty On The Pavement.

It just depends on what you want tires for. You can't have one that does everything.

The longer a tire wears, the harder the compound is, and the worse grip it gets on trail obstacles.

You don't see many Krawlers, because the Red Labels have a very soft compound that will wear extremely fast driven on the pavement, and the Blue Labels really don't have, IMO, any major benefits over other tires out there, and they are pricy.

~10,000 miles

They seem to be wearing alright for how they perform. I'm guessing I'll get 30k out of them.

Pros:
- Great in mud.
- Great in the rocks.
- Good in deep snow.
- Seem to be hard to unseat. Ran them at 8 PSI hot last summer in the rocks and never popped the bead.

Cons:
- A bit loud.
- Need more lateral traction.
- Pretty terrible on ice.
- Loud.

Would I buy them again? Meh, they work for my uses right now, (DD with a good bit of offroading thrown in), but I don't think I'll get them again. I really want to try the Maxxis Trepadors or Creepy Crawlers.
