Nitto Trail Grappler M/T Overview

The Nitto Trailer Grappler M/T is a top of the food chain, competition level mud-terrain from Nitto.

The Nitto Trail Grappler M/T will smash any off-road limitations. It combines the characteristics of two top tier Nitto 4x4 tires: The Terra Grappler (all terrain) and the Trail Grappler M/T (mud terrain). Incorporating the extreme off-road performance attributes of the Mud Grappler and livable design elements of the Terra Grappler, the Trail Grappler M/T is the best of both worlds. The Trail Grappler belongs off-road but isn’t entirely unfriendly when dirt turns to pavement.

To counteract the irritating road noise typically associated with off-road tires, Nitto’s engineers used advanced sound equipment to systematically reduce noise levels. According to Nitto, the Trail Grappler M/T is 34% quieter at street speeds and 36% quieter at highway speeds than the Mud Grappler.

“The Trail Grappler M/T blends some of the performance of the Mud Grappler with the on-road comfort of the Terra Grappler to create an off-road tire that is both aggressive and quiet.” –

The Trail Grappler M/T also features a superior puncture resistance that’s achieved via a 3-ply construction (E/10-ply load range and ply rating) and heaps of good, old-fashioned thick rubber.

The Trail Grappler M/T utilizes proven construction methods to deflect hazards and stay aired up even when the elements are conspiring against you.

“The 3-ply sidewall with a high turn-up construction acts as an extra layer of reinforcement to increase puncture resistance.” –

One of the practical byproducts of having such immense off-road durability and solid construction means mega towing and hauling capacity. The Trail Grappler M/T isn’t likely to be outmatched by off-road terrain, or any heavy-duty towing and hauling duties.

Full-depth central sipes add traction on wet roads

The ability of tire tread to evacuate water is critical for traction on wet roads and in standing water conditions. With their oversized tread blocks, not every mud-terrain tire does a great job cutting through the precipitation layer and avoiding a hydroplaning situation.

The Trail Grappler M/T features full-depth central sipes specifically integrated to reduce the possibility of hydroplaning and generally improve wet traction. And its real specialty is mud evacuation – the balanced void ratio gives mud and loose dirt plenty of space to vacate. The tread voids also help guard against dirt and terrain becoming embedded in the tread and the associated loss of maximum tread function.
