It’s been a hot debate amongst tire nerds for years. We investigated and have the answer (sort of).Check it out
Part of Nitto's Grappler family of truck tires, the Ridge Grappler blends mud-terrain and all-terrain capabilities while offering pleasant highway manners and low road noise. The dynamic hybrid tread pattern provides a quiet and comfortable ride while the deep, aggressive sidewall lugs and tread pattern deliver capable off-road performance.
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.
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.
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.
The Ridge Grappler is available in six different sizes ranging from 16-inch to 24-inch wheels for a wide variety of trucks and SUVs. An optional F load rating means it can handle the demands of a 1-ton truck. You can shop by your vehicle's year, make and model to find the right fit.

User feedback on the Nitto Ridge Grappler has been hugely positive. From trucks to Jeeps to other SUVs, the tire performs well in challenging conditions. It's a great all-around tire that lends confidence in commute during rain or snow. The quiet road manners mean you won't regret choosing a tire with such powerful off-road capabilities. There's no need for compromise here.
Speaking of no compromises, the two sidewall patterns – a traditional pattern on one side and a block design on the other – give you options to match the look you want for your vehicle. Go for aggressive and rugged, or opt for a subdued, street-ready style.
The scores are in and it looks like the Nitto Ridge Grappler is a big winner across the board
