Default Nitto Trail Grapplers Ordered!

Just pulled the trigger on some 305/55/R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers to put on my stock 20s after weeks of debating between Cooper Zeons, Trail Grapplers, and Terra Grapplers. The Bilstein 5100s will be here tonight so hopefully the UPS driver will have my tires here by the end of the week. Now the waiting begins.

Everyone with these tires like them? How many miles should I expect from them?

You've made a good choice in tires and shocks. How about dropping by the Newbie Checkin and introducing yourself.

Welcome to the site. Hope to see more of you and the truck. We are photo hungry so be sure to get plenty of before, during and after shots.

Very nice choice. From what I hear, they're excellent tires. Not too noisy but have tons of grip. Let us know when you get them put on!

Yes I only got the front ones, will be installing them tomorrow night. They have adjustable settings and claim to get 2"+ at the highest setting. I will do some before and after measurements and report my results. I'm hoping that I will not need spacers but I will not be sure until I get the tires installed (tomorrow as well).

I think you were referring to wheel spacers, right??

I'm guessing you will need wheel spacers but not 100% positive. I just put on my 295/70/17 Trail Grapplers on XD Spy rims yesterday and they were pretty close to rubbing. I also have the Bilsteins at their highest setting, be aware you will not get a total level in the front from them. I was a bit dissapointed that they didn't completely level my front, but they do make for a much nicer ride. The tires are awesome and I bet you are going to love them, they look mean!

I was hoping to get away with not having spacers but I guess I will know for sure tonight when I get them on. My truck sits pretty level for stock so maybe the Bilsteins will get me there??? I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

It'll be really close with 305's but I think you'll make it with the bilsteins. If not, the biggest spacer you'll probably need is 1/4"
