Default Are Nittos and Toyos the same?

Toyo makes Nittos. Which brand is their premium tire? I got a price for Toyo AT Open Country that was the same for terra grapplers. Which then is the better deal if they are the same price?

Between the two tires, there's no quality difference, both are amazing tires, it's mostly aesthetics as well as minor handling differences from the different trad pattern. People are as divided on these two as they are about coke vs pepsi.

I think the Toyos tend to last longer, fact check me on this but I think the Toyos have a mileage warranty while the Nittos do not offer this.

You're right, the Nittos only have a mileage warranty on certain tires, the terra and trail grapplers aren't on that list. Interesting though, over a 17" rim, there's no mileage warranty on the Open Country A/Ts either, but you've got a 40,000 if you run a 17" rim.

If you run the e rated 10 ply grappler you get way better mileage. The 6 ply is very soft and doesn't last.

Tire ply has nothing to do with tread compound or how hard the tires is.
