It depends on what you are looking for. The grapplers look cool, yes. However, they are heavy, noise, kill gas mileage, expensive and like tractor tires at low speeds.I just can’t decide.
the ko2’s are relatively quiet and offer a smooth ride
nitto trail grapplers seem to be the most popular (I have zero experience with them)
nitto mud grapplers look the coolest, are the noisiest, and am unsure how the ride feel is compared to the ko2’s
sorry to thread Jack but out of the three what made you decide to go with the mud grapplers and would you do it again?
how do the 37x13.5r20 nitto mud grapplers ride otherwise on pavement? Smooth? Bumpy? Stiff?It depends on what you are looking for. The grapplers look cool, yes. However, they are heavy, noise, kill gas mileage, expensive and like tractor tires at low speeds.
The ko2s are decent tires. However, they are not a mud terrain (the stock at). I have to be honest, I haven’t been too impressed with bfgs since the first edition of the mud terrain was discontinued. I’ve had numerous sets of the original AtS and they did not clean well at all. However, the new warranty is impressive and we will be putting a set on the wife’s baby bronco.
I decided on the grapplers because they do awesome in the mud around the Southern Oregon trails, wear pretty good for a mt, look awesome, and sound awesome. I had a set of 35s on my f150 as well. Just know they are Loud,,,, like a “plane taking off” loud.
When I stated non-repairable....I meant any reputable tire retailer would deem it non-repairable.I would repair that on the side of the trail and drive it another 40,000 miles.
From across a parking lot I agree, but I've spotted things like that before by pure coincidence and sheer luck.Wait wait wait... so this dude just happened to be inspecting your tires from across the parking lot and came over to point the screw out to you as you were leaving, then makes a cryptic comment about how they find their way into side walls all the time? Maybe I just need a tin foil hat...
Because dudes throw crap in the back of their pickups thinking it is waterproof and blow down the road. After a while out it comes. I try to please the tire karma by picking up every nail or pointy thing i see and put it in the trash.It still baffles me how nails and screws always end up on the road and eventually in someones tire!
same thing i was thinking. clearly that was the guy that put the screw in thereWait wait wait... so this dude just happened to be inspecting your tires from across the parking lot and came over to point the screw out to you as you were leaving, then makes a cryptic comment about how they find their way into side walls all the time?

Wisdom comes with experience, experience comes with mistakes.Just don’t pull it out until you are AT a repair shop. Several years ago I was in the garage when I saw a roofing nail in the thick lug of a M&S tire on my Jeep. No obvious leak-pulled it out and ssssss as it promptly went flat. Nail was a good bit longer than I thought, So I got the privilege of changing a tire in the garage
That looks plug able. I had a shop try to sell me a tire on one that was larger and further on the sidewall. I told them to put a tube in it, made a good spare until tires were needed. Didn’t have TPMS, but I could live without it on a spare.Yeah. You have a really good spare right there. It's probably fine to plug though if you wanted. It's on the edge.
The shop is going to try and sell you a new tire.
