The Nitto Trail Grappler MT Tire Nitto recently announced enhancing the Nitto Trail Grappler MT tire in offroad tire lineup. The switch to create this new design originated in the market requirement for a good offroad tire that also behaves good on-road, that is where most offroad weekend warriors spend their weekdays. On the daily commute of their 4x4. As feedback rolls in, this was a good deal with it Nitto's part his or her tire lineup needed a tire to slot in to provide a lesser aggressive MT type tire compared to the Mud Grappler but more aggressive compared to the All Terrain tires that Nitto already offered. Using Nitto's advanced design methods, they resulted in a trail design that performs inside a wide a number of terrains including mud, dirt, gravel and forested logging trails. Very common terrains many offroaders encounter all over the trails with the U.S. The trade-offs that will be typical of traction over road comfort were primary concern with designing the Nitto Trail Grappler MT in accordance with Staff Engineer at Nitto Tire, Anthony Lee. The eating habits study advanced CAD design, analysis and testing of multiple designs must have been a moderately aggressive MT tire which can be well suited for daily driving. Offroad performance with the Nitto Trail Grappler MT develops from a 3-ply sidewall and thick, puncture resistant rubber compound to protect what's often the most vulnerable section of a tire. The tread design works with a large siped block configuration that offers great forward traction while holding lateral stability. The balance of void to lug is decent for mud and snow and clears debris well. On road design characteristics are nearly as impressive. Utilizing advanced sound analysis equipment, Nitto's engineers was able to make certain you design a tread configuration that keeps noise levels due to below what are the average MT tire would create. The low-noise tread design also generates a tire with less treadwear; less noise, less rolling resistance = better tread life. Internal construction includes 2 wide steel belts for just a stable base, increased tread strength and give a far more uniform tread wear after a while. The outer shoulder tread block reinforced grooves provide stiffness and support for longer tread life. The Nitto Trail Grappler MT is available in popular sizes from 32- to 37-inch for full-sized trucks (Load-rated "E" , Jeeps and SUVS.
