Extreme Mud Terrain Light Truck Tire
The Mud Grappler® extreme mud terrain tires provides traction over various off-road terrain, whether it’s dirt, rocks or mud. The massive side-lugs and 3-ply polyester sidewall construction add more protection to help prevent sidewall punctures when facing the most challenging off-road obstacles. The Mud Grappler® tire can handle anything you throw at it.
Features and Benefits
Dual Sidewall Designs
Each Grappler has two sidewall designs so you can choose how your tires look. On the Mud Grappler, one side has lizard skin side lugs and the other has plain side lugs. 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.
Aggressive Sidewall Lugs
The sidewall design is as important as the tread pattern for maximum off-road performance. The Nitto Mud Grappler mud terrain tire has one of the most aggressive and functional sidewall designs on the market. The massive lugs provide additional biting edges, which is especially helpful in rocky terrain. The additional depth also provides punctured resistance.
High Void Ratio
The high void ratio between the tread blocks efficiently clears mud and dirt from the pattern to provide excellent traction in extreme terrain.
The three-ply polyester sidewall construction and high strength steel belt tread package improve puncture resistance.
The tread blocks are arranged to keep part of the lugs biting the ground at all times.

Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road
Off road we were very happy with the tires performance. We spent a long weekend exploring back hills, and even with a 3 1/2-ton test truck, we always felt like we had solid footing whether climbing or descending off-camber knolls. It seems to us that the deep tread depth, sipped lugs, and the claw with reptile skin design all work as well as they look.
4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine
Front and rear axles were placed 1-inch forward and 1-inch rearward, respectively, to ... properly situate the tires under the fenders … With a [14" travel coil over kit in place] there was plenty of room for a set of 40x15.50R20 Nitto Mud Grapplers mounted on 20x9 Black Rhino Rockwell wheels.
The Nittos are probably the roundest radial mud tires we have ever come in contact with. ... One of the tires needed only 1/4 ounce of wheel weight to balance out. The rest of them averaged 2 ounces. If you're not familiar with 35-inch mud tires, that's unheard of and unbelievable. The Nittos are precision tires when compared to the rest of the mud-tire market.
