Nitto Trail Grappler Mileage Life

Nitto Trail Grappler Mileage Life

If you’re hunting for serious off-road tires the deciding factor might not be tire life. Then again, there’s nothing worse than incredibly grippy tires that you have to replace all the time.

No thanks.

The Trail Grappler is one of Nitto’s mud-terrain tires. And like pretty much all mud-terrain tires, it does not come with a milage guarantee.

Nitto is an interesting brand in that they offer not one, but two mud-terrain tires. There’s Trail Grappler MT as well as the even more extreme Mud Grappler. The latter is technically road legal, but it’s almost a dedicate off-road tire. As for the Trail Grappler MT, while you wouldn’t expect long life out of it… you do expect a lot more than 10,000 miles.

Surveying the vast quantity of data from reviews online, one can reasonably expect between 30,000 and 50,000 miles on a set. That’s a big gap. No doubt.

It’s also pretty fair.

Those who really do some serious off-roading will see on the lower end of the scale, while less-frequent off-roaders will stretch toward the top end – or even over. It is not surprising to find owners with more than 50,000 miles on a set.

Rated by Nitto’s own customers, almost everyone gives it 4 or 5 stars out of 5 with an overall 4.2 out of 5 rating. Those are some happy customers.

Nitto Trail Grappler Warranty

While the Trail Grappler MT is’t backed by a milage guarantee, it is covered by Nitto’s standard limited warranty. This warranty applies in three stages. For any tire that is worn less an 1/32 of an inch, and found to have a defect in materials or workmanship, Nitto will replace it free of charge. For any tire that is worn less than 25% (and is 60 months old or newer) and is found to have a defect in materials or workmanship, Nitto will replace it free of charge. For any tire that is worn more than 25% (and is within 60 months of the original purchase date), Nitto will replace it on a pro-rated basis. Nitto will cover mounting and balancing under the first two cases, but the owner is responsible for on warranty-claim tires with over 25% wear.

  1. I put a set of Nitto Trail Grapplers on 2011 Chevy Silverado 35×12.50 20 in 2014 I currently have 80, 000 miles on these tires. I still have tread but starting to crack a lot. I’m currently about to replace them with a new set. Have rotated them every 6, 000 miles since I purchased them. Great tire and I stand by them!

  2. I’ve had the 35/12.5/R20 Nitto Trail Grappler MT tires on my 2013 F-150 King Ranch for 81k miles. Just now replacing them. Could prob get another 5k out of them. Great tires! Used minimally offroad and rotated every 5-6k miles.

  3. I just purchased a new set of them for my 2019 Ram 2500 w/Cummins. They’re 285/70r17’s. I have a set of Sumitomo’s and they’ve lasted me 40,000 miles so far with another 10k left on them. When they’re down to nubs, I’m going to put the new Nitto’s on my truck. I’m excited to get them installed, because they look really awesome, but I’m going to wait until the Sumitomo’s are done for. I’m happy to see people with good luck on the tread life of these new Nitto’s and hope mine will last me at least 40k miles.
