Built for going off road.

If you're looking for a tire to go off-road and tear it up in the dirt and mud in your truck or SUV, the Nitto Ridge Grappler will let you have a blast and then bring you home. Thanks to a rugged tread that bites into dirt and gravel and shoulder grooves that clear away mud, traction is strong in any terrain.

At home on the road.

After you've had your fun off-road, the Ridge Grappler is ready to carry you home. When you hit the highway you'll appreciate the smooth, quiet ride on the road. Even if you never take your vehicle off road, you'll appreciate the performance and grip in rain and snow. The Ridge Grappler offers the best of both worlds for off-road and on-road performance compared to more aggressive mud, sand or snow tire options.

Robust off-road tread design.

This tire combines the best of Nitto all-terrain and mud terrain technology to produce a rugged beast of a tire that’s ready for anything. Features like step-block edges, a variable-pitch tread pattern and lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction. Shoulder grooves clear mud from the tread for a strong grip when it counts. Stone ejectors push rocks out of the tread, preventing damage to the bottom of the grooves. It's a dynamic tire on any terrain.
