Trail Grappler first impression
Had some Trail Grapplers mounted yesteday,
295/70/18 at 45psi

All I can say is WOW , what an awsome looking tire, I had Terra Grapplers but they were not aggressive enough for me so I sold them to buy these. I was very relieved pulling out of the tire shop and going for a drive at differnt speeds , tuns , ect.

1- Not loud at all, I cant even hear them, some say they are noisy around 60mph so I went 60 couldnt hear anything , rolled down my window but all I heard was the wind.

2- Ride is no different, I expected a little stiffer, very nice

3-Steering was not affected, I was expecting a little more resistance

4- I do get a little bit of vibration below 20 mph but nothing over that.

I went with the block lettering and block side wall cause side by side with the goth lettering and v-shaped lug, the block side looks alot beefer. Overall I am very happy so far, cant wait to get them off road. I was going to post pics but I think everyone has seen their fair share of Trail Grapplers on Rockstars,

Are you serious - tease us with a review and then not post a pic of the new tires, that's not fair.

I know everyone bit*$^ about rockstars because they are common, but I still love them. So get those pics up!
Also, what size and offset wheel if you don't mind? I'm debating wheels and tires currently.

You should know better by now . lol . Just watch your tire pressure and tire wear . I personally think 45 psi is too much . I say start around 35 .
