Need help making new tire choice....

I am looking into buying new tires but I'm unsure what to buy. I wnat to get the Nitto Terra Grapplers but all the reviews I have read are giving mixed fellings on the tread life, some sat that they are shot after 20K and others say that they will last for 50K+... I want a tire that will be good off raod and fairly quiet on road since this is the family daily driver. Please help.... I have found the Nitto tires at Summit for $130. Any suggestions to a comparable tire to the Terra Grapplers around the same price?

For what it's worth I've had nothing but good experiences with them...if you rotate them at the correct interval, and your not doing massive 4wd burnouts, then I think you will be perfectly happy with them. I have only run them on 91 cherokee so nothing as heavy as the commander but I know a bunch of people that run them on their 1500 pickups and have had 0 problems with long tire life and quiet road manners.

Most of the negative reviews I have seen on this tire have come from HD truck owners that aren't running a size that is approved for their wheels. They seem to like to cram a wide tire on a narrow wheel and then wonder why they don't last... I have had nothing but an awesome experience with this tire and this brand. I have Mud grapplers on my truck and Terra Grapplers on my wife's truck. I highly recommend them and I would be happy to help you with a set if you are interested. I promise you, you will get the best price if you make your purchase through Discount Tire and if you ever have an issue we will be here to help you.

The offer is always here.

I have to say the nittos are great...my buddy had them on his F350 and what he puts his truck through you couldnt even start to try with an XK and they held up, he decided to save up and buy another set. Personally I am loving my Silent Armors from Goodyear. But if I had the deal and the little extra cash Id go with Nitto.

I have always been a big fan of BFG. love their KM2's on my cherokee went with the AT on the commander just because it see more on road then off, it's my daily driver. Just my 2 cents.

I had a bug planted in my ear about some retreads....I looked into them and decided to give them a shot. The tread pattern is the same as the BFG AT tire and half the price. I got 4 255/75/17 shipped for $500. Should have them this week. I had to look into the warranty before I made the decision and since they had a 2yr/24k warranty I figured that they were worth a shot.
