Why is technology important in tires? Because it makes them better. From the rubber compound used to their construction, the technology utilized to design and manufacture Nitto Tires sets their performance apart—and that’s especially true for larger-size light truck tires.

Nitto Tire uses cutting-edge technology in our engineering and manufacturing process that lead to high-performing light truck tires that have capable off-road qualities while also being comfortable and quiet on the road. Look at the technology Nitto Tires is reinventing the wheel with:

1. Spiral-Wound Construction: enables tires to be aggressive while also riding incredibly smooth. Uniformity leads to a tire with a longer tread life that is easier to balance.

2. Tread and Sidewall Designs: deliver off-road performance for the most demanding terrain. Providing biting edges to propel your vehicle past obstacles–adding safety, performance and comfort.

3. Computer-Simulated Tread: delivers a quiet and comfortable ride on the freeway. Because you use your truck for much more than just off-roading—the Ridge Grappler is just as comfortable on asphalt as it is in the dirt and mountains.
