They are OK. They are quiet and look good but wet traction is not as good as a BFG AT. It isn't bad though. But, they are quite a bit cheaper too.

I did get a big tack nail in one of them and it didn't even go flat when I pulled it out. They are 10ply, E rated and pretty tough.

Do your sidewalls say 10 ply in the plies note for construction?
Al lot of tire stores use the term 10 ply rated....not the same as the actual construction; most are 3 ply at most.

I got 66K miles out of my Trail Grapplers and they'd still throw a little mud when I pulled them off last week. I can't say enough good about them. Unfortunately they've went up quite a bit since I bought mine and so I made myself a guinea pig for the Atturo Trail Blade MT. They look like a cross between a Toyo MT and a Trail Grappler. and were 289 a piece instead of 420 (made in Thailand). I would have sprung for more Trails but if I end up trading my my truck I'll be sick over losing those tires. I've used the Trail Blades in a low traction situation already. They aren't built as heavy or wide as the Nittos.

Hi Ram Country, I have a 2011 Ram 4x4 and I am going to be putting leveling kit on. I want a set of tires that stick out about 1.5 to 2" more than my stockers. I'm currently running 20" from the factory. I want to go down to 18" wheels but keep the same tire hight as the stock tires. So I have 2 questions. 1) what should my offset and back spacing be, for the wheel. 2) which is a better tire, General Grabber, Micky Thompson STZ, Toyo open Country, BFG A/T, or any thing you recommend with this tread style. Any help would be appreciated.

Great info, thanks for compiling all of that!

I'm trying to find info/opinions on the Mickey Thompson Baja Radial STZ. Every time I do a search for the STZ, the search engine strips STZ out and gives me everything Baja.

Does anyone have any experience with this particular tire?

Cheers,
Andrew
