Nitto Ridge Grappler | A Fresh Look on Hybrid Light Truck Tires



Nitto's New Hybrid Light Truck Tire

The Nitto Ridge Grappler combines the aggressive off-road performance of a mud-terrain tire with the on-road comfort of an all-terrain tire. Using its aggressive tread design, tread block stabilizers, and variable pitch tread pattern, the Ridge Grappler delivers excellent traction in mud, sand, and loose gravel and a surprisingly responsive, comfortable highway ride. High load carrying capacities from P-metric up to F-rated options. Whether you drive a daily work truck or an off-road adventure vehicle, the Nitto Ridge Grappler is a great choice.

-KEY FEATURES-

  • Variable Pitch Tread Pattern: Advanced sound equipment was used to create a pattern that provides a quiet and smooth highway ride.

  • Alternating Shoulder Groovers: Shoulder grooves are arranged in alternating widths and lengths to clear mud and maintain traction. Lateral Z grooves are set in a zig-zag pattern to provide biting edges for traction.

  • Dual Sidewall: Like all Grapplers, the Ridge Grappler features two bold sidewall designs. One side features a more traditional pattern while the other side features a new, aggressive block design.

  • Reinforced Block Foundation: Adds rigidity to tread blocks to reduce flex.

  • Stone Ejectors: Protects the bottom of groove from stone drilling.

  • Staggered Should Lugs: Provides traction in off-road environments.

  • Edges: The alternating tapered edges and step block edges both provide additional biting edges for more traction.

Looks pretty nice. I was going to say it's a bit aggressive for an AT, but if you look up their website it was meant to be that way....not a full on MT, but Nitto also has a couple offerings that are more true AT being less aggressive, more siping and tighter tread pattern. So it seems to fit well in their lineup.

You're absolutely right, Shadofax. The Ridge Grappler is positioned between the Trail Grappler and Terra Grappler G2.

Sorry, at this time Nitto does not have any 15 inch sizes in their lineup.

We have other tires to fit that are 15 inch. You can search our web site by size:

Looks like no 16" either...

Great selection of Brodozer sizes, though!

These kind of remind me of the Duratrac, how are these in the snow/ice?

Tough to say at this point since they are so new to the market. I haven't seen any first hand winter opinions just yet.
