Nitto Terra Grappler

The Terra Grappler all-terrain tyre works year-round. With a balance of wet and dry performance and on-road comfort and quietness. Designed for use on trucks and SUVs, the Terra Grappler provides balanced performance in all weather conditions over various terrains. Because of this design, the Terra Grappler is a tyre for all occasions.

  • The tread pattern void ratio is balanced for off-road traction and on-road handling. Coupling joints between tread block elements reduce excessive flex for better traction and steering response on and off road. As a result, the Terra Grappler offers multi purpose traction and handling.
  • Deep sipes and lateral voids effectively channel away water. This helps resist hydroplaning by cutting through pockets of water on road surfaces. In turn, this technology provides all-season traction.
  • The lugs on the shoulder are staggered to improve traction in deep sand and loose dirt, providing great off road performance.

Nitto Mud Grappler

The Mud Grappler extreme terrain provides off road traction over various terrain, weather it’s dirt, rocks or mud. Due to the special design of the Mud Grapper, this tyre will take you where others fail.

The massive side-blocks 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 extreme terrain tyre can handle anything you throw at it.

  • The aggressive sidewall lugs are as important as the tread pattern for maximum off-road performance. The Nitto Mud Grappler 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. All of this leads to extra off road performance and a longer lasting tyre.
  • 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, avoiding potential premature tyre replacement.

Nitto Trail Grappler

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 tyre 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. Nitto’s engineers used advanced sound analysis equipment to systematically reduce noise levels commonly associated with off-road tyres for a quieter drive. Due to this advanced technology, the Trail Grappler is optimised for highway driving while also having the bite needed for off road activities.

  • The 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance. As a result, the Trail Grappler is more durable.
  • Nitto’s proprietary, automated manufacturing system produces extraordinarily uniform tyres. This creates a smooth ride on paved roads for improved on road comfort.
  • The balanced void ratio efficiently removes mud and dirt from the tread to provide continuous off-road traction.
