Alfred's TakeAlfred's Take

Being that the Terra Grappler tires have been popular all-terrain tires for several years, this new and even better model will certainly become more popular, being that it definitely has excellent performance.

Nitto Terra Grappler

The Terra grappler is an all-terrain light truck 4×4 tire built for light trucks, 4×4 wheel drive, SUVs, and passenger cars.

Terra Grappler 4×4 tire combines both off-and on-road performance in wet and dry conditions.

It offers considerable comfort and low noise with guaranteed balanced performance in all weather conditions.

The traction is excellent with luxury handling in mud and soft sand in most all-year-round driving conditions including light snow.

The Terra Grappler 4×4 all-terrain tire is affordable as well as dependable as you can control its stability even at high speed.

The commendable even tread-wear after about 75,000km coverage and the Manufacturer’s tread-life warranty of 50,000 miles for light trucks and 65,000 miles for SUVs put your mind at rest.

You can audibly enjoy your car stereo while driving courtesy of low noise radiation from the tires.

What’s more -the tread-life is longer and its firm grip on the road surface is higher compared with other types.

However, you may not enjoy the best of this tire on heavy snow.


  • The two-sidewall design gives you a choice of controlling how your tire looks and it assists greatly in weight balancing, thereby eliminating unwanted vibrations.
  • The tread pattern void ratio supports off-road traction and on-road handling while the angled lateral voids on the Terra Grappler expels the water in wet condition and provides forward stability in dry conditions.
  • The functional full-depth sipes fixed on the tire maintains a fine appearance and supports the tread designs, as it wears evenly and slowly.
  • The staggered shoulder lugs on the Nitto Terra Grappler provide additional biting edges in off-road conditions, especially in deep sand and loose dirt.
  • The coupling joints are strongly supported connecting the outer tread blocks to the center blocks to increase the block edge rigidity.

  • Outstanding traction on dry, wet, or snow surfaces
  • Steering response is better than expected
  • Very comfortable ride on the highway


  • The users noticed a little extra road noise due to the AT tread design
  • Not ideal in deep mud or dirt
Alfred's TakeAlfred's Take

Even though some users claimed that road noise is an issue, we need to say that this is an aggressive all-terrain tire and road noise should be expected.

Nitto Ridge Grappler

Hybrid Extreme-Duty Light-Truck 4X4 Tire

The Ridge Grappler combines the durability of the Trail Grappler mud-terrain with the comfort and longevity of Terra Grappler all-terrain brands.

It is the upcoming generation version of all Nitto’s Grappler series designed specially to tackle any terrain with confidence.

This is a multi-purpose tire suitable for all safety-minded 4-wheel drivers which provide a quiet, comfortable ride.


  • The Ridge Grappler has variable pitch tread to create a smooth and quiet highway ride, alternating shoulder grooves for debris clearing and perfect traction, as well as a dual sidewall design for a peculiar look.
  • Its tight center tread with the deep effective lugs affords great off-road handling.
  • Lateral Z grooves are set in a zigzag pattern to provide biting edges for traction while shoulder grooves are arranged in varying widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction.
  • The staggered shoulder tread provides additional off-road traction, thereby increasing contact with rocks to enhance smooth paddling on soft terrain.
  • The fixed stone ejector protects the bottom of the groove from stone drilling to encourage self-cleaning and create zero vibration while on the move.
  • Advanced sound equipment employed creates a pattern that enhances quietness on the highway.
  • The tapered base extension that connects the tread blocks together adds rigidity to the tread block to increase stability.
