    Mud Terrain Light Truck Tire
    Find a Store

    The Trail Grappler® M/T blends some of the performance of the Mud Grappler® with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler® to create an off-road tire that is both aggressive and quiet.  

    For off-road performance, the 3-ply sidewall and thick rubber construction increase puncture resistance. On the tread surface, the blocks provide additional biting edges that command lateral stability and enhance forward traction. For on-road comfort, Nitto’s engineers used advanced sound analysis equipment to systematically reduce noise levels commonly associated with off-road tires for a quieter drive.

  • Dual Sidewall Designs

    Each Grappler has two sidewall designs so you can choose how your tires look. On the Trail Grappler one side has stylized lettering with V-shaped sidewall lugs and the other has traditional lettering with flat buttresses. 

  • Tread Block Arrangement

    A common complaint with mud terrain tires is their noise level. Nitto's engineers set out to design an aggressive -- and yet quiet -- off-road tire. Using 3D computer simulation, Nitto's engineers were able to systematically adjust the size, shape and position of the tread blocks. As a result, Nitto produced an off-road tire that is 34% quieter at street speeds and 36% quieter at highway speeds.*  *Compared to Nitto Mud Grappler

  • Durability

    The 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance.

  • On-Road Comfort

    Nitto’s proprietary, automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tires. This creates a smooth ride on paved roads.

  • Shoulder Grooves

    Reinforced shoulder grooves adds additional off-road and all-season performance without compromising tread block stiffness

  • Central Siping

    Deep center sipes decrease hydroplaning and increases traction in wet conditions

  • Mud Evacuation

    The balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.

Features and Benefits

Dual Sidewall Designs

Each Grappler has two sidewall designs so you can choose how your tires look. On the Trail Grappler one side has stylized lettering with V-shaped buttresses and the other has traditional lettering with flat buttresses. This feature was an engineering feat since even a small weight imbalance can cause unwanted vibrations. Nitto produces exceptionally uniform off-road tires even with different designs.

Tread Block Arrangement

Industry Quotes

JP Magazine

John Cappa

Nitto does a really good job of making sure its tires are round and well balanced. The Trail Grappler rolls really smooth down the road even though we didn't bother having them balanced. They don't wear quickly or in a strange pattern. With regular tire rotations, proper alignment, and correct air pressure, the Trail Grapplers should have no problem going 40,000 miles or more.

Diesel Power Magazine

David Kennedy

The first thing we noticed is that the Trail Grapplers were quieter than we expected … When it came time to hit some serious mud, the Trail Grapplers surprised us. The tread pattern provided the right balance of grip and thrust in all the gooey stuff we took them through. We seemed to run out of ground clearance long before the tire ran out of traction.

Four Wheeler Magazine

Robin Stover

In the world of mud-terrain tires many brands have laid claim to quiet on-pavement performance. However, typically when we test 'em, we sometimes find the word "quiet" was misused. Not so with the newest tread from Nitto. In fact, we believe the new Trail Grappler M/T may just be the quietest mud-terrain tire we've ever tested. And in all actuality, Nitto set out to do just that.
