Hankook MT vs Open Country MT vs Trail Grapplers

Hankook MT vs Open Country MT vs Trail Grapplers

Postby Radosonly22 [OP] » Feb 13 2014, 6:49am

I'm trying to decide between these 3 tires. I drive strictly on pavement, yeah my truck is a highway princess ;) but I like the leveled beefy look. I'm wanting to run 33's on 18's. Which will last longer and which is overall a better tire?

if you drive strictly pavement id look into a Dura Grappler or Terra Grappler.

They are all MT's, so they milage on all will not be that great IMO..just another here to consider. While not a outright MT, has a good look and milage numbers.

The Trail Grappler gets my vote. Aggressive looking and great traction off the road without being rough on the highway.

Trail Grapplers. I have them on my truck and I love them. I'm sporting the 295/70/18 that have 30,000 on them and still some decent tread left. I feel that I shouldn't have any issue getting 45,000 - 50,000 out of them. I keep my tires at 50psi and regular rotations (5,000 miles) with every oil change.

Being all highway buying M/T's is not very smart IMO. Unless you can flush cash yearly... IMO go with a good A/T instead. Still get a beefy look plus they'll last a helluva lot longer.

Guys he wants an MT because of looks. From the 3 you mentioned I prefer the trail grapplers. I have them on my truck and they are perfect, not to loud on the road but really make the truck stand out. They do we'll in most weather conditions too. The toyo mt is very expensive and is more aggressive. Go with the nitto, you will be happy.

+1 on what ShookJ1 said. Trail grapplers are working well for me as well.

Right now I'm running a set of Hankook ATM's. I have around 15K on them and they're wearing like iron. They've been very good to me except 3 flats (picked up some nails at the garbage dump lol). They are a great tire but just not enough aggressive look for me.
