NITTO TIRE NEWS Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Release Announced

Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Release Announced

Nitto is proud to announce the release of its newest off-road tire, the Trail Grappler M/T. The Trail Grappler M/T combines some of the off-road bite of the Mud Grappler with the on-road manners of the Terra Grappler, to create a tire that is both aggressive and quiet.

There is no need to comprise off-road or on-road performance any longer, thanks to the exclusive technologies found in the Trail Grappler M/T.

Off-Road Performance Features:
- Side wall combines a 3-ply high turn-up construction with a thick rubber compound that cushions the tire and helps prevent punctures
- Z Groove provides lateral stability and mud traction
- 3D tapered tread blocks add additional biting edges for stability and traction
- Balanced void ratio and stone ejectors help clear the tread to provide continuous traction

On-Road Performance Features:
- Tread design was developed using advanced sound analysis equipment to reduce noise levels common to off-road tires
- Two wide steel belts provide a stable base for increased tread strength and uniformity which reduces irregular wear
- Outer shoulder blocks have reinforced grooves that help maintain block stiffness to further extend the tread life
- Deep center sipes maintain contact with the road surface in wet conditions

Visual Features:
- Two side wall designs on each tire that allow you pick the style that faces the road.
